About the event
Check-in starts at 10am, auction starts at 11am, and concludes when the last item is sold.
Registration - you will need to create an account.
You may also register your bag at the event, however there could be a long line. So, avoid the lines and pre-register.
The club gets the first $1 on each bag. Then the split is as follows
Members, get 70% of the sales price and the AAAA gets 30%.
Nonmembers, get 50% of the sales price and the AAAA gets 50%.
Bidding will start at $2 per bag.
There will be no dry goods (tanks, equipment, decor, etc) allowed. Only live fish, plants, and food. There are no bag limits, so bring what you have. Although, keep in mind that if you bring a lot of bags of the same thing, you will drive the price down. One or two bags will always go for a higher per bag price, than 10 bags will.
We will also be selling following items
Food tickets for $1. One ticket for drinks, and two tickets for pizza!
Raffle tickets for $1 or 6 for $5
T-shirts for $15 (limited size and quantities available)
Priority stickers for $2. - Bags with priority stickers will be brought from viewing tables by staff to the final processing area, and placed in line before any non-priority bags that were in the queue to start the process. Exceptions will be made for donation items or to better improve the flow of the auction and bids on the items.
All purchases must be settled at the event.
These auctions take a lot volunteers to make things go smoothly.
If you are interested in helping out, please follow the link to sign up for a slot(s) to work at the event. Members get $25 in FishBucks per hour worked. FishBucks are accrued throughout the year to be spent at our Holiday Party during the FishBucks auction. FishBucks are not redeemable for cash.
Keep in mind that these big auctions are a major source of fundraising for the club. This is what enables us to bring in premier speakers from out of town to speak at our regular meetings. Hope to see you there!
