Auction Registration is now live @ https://www.aquaticgardener.com/AAAA/auctionregistration/
Use Auction Key Code: 09232023
Check-in starts at 10am, auction starts at 11am, and concludes when the last item is sold. There will be an on-line, bag, pre-registration announced about two weeks prior to the event. You may also register your bag at the event, however there could be a long line. So, avoid the lines and pre-register when we announce it. 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.
Priority Stickers are available for purchase at $2 each. Bags with these stickers will be moved by the Pickers faster to auction block. Buyers and sellers may purchase these stickers and apply them to any bag. Buyers, if you cannot stay all day, and want to insure you get to bid on the bag you want, buy a Priority Sticker! Sellers, if you do not want to wait, get a Priority Sticker and push it towards the front of the line.
There will be no dry goods (tanks, equipment, decor, etc) allowed. Only live fish and plants. Please bring your dry goods to one of our swap meets. 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. All purchases must be settled at the event. Sellers will receive a check in the mail after the Treasurer and Bookkeeper complete their audit. This usually takes a week or two.
We will also be selling food tickets for $1. One ticket for drinks, and two tickets for pizza!
These auctions take a lot volunteers to make things go smoothly.
If you are interested in helping out, please use this form to sign up for a slot working 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!
