MAJOR AUCTION LOTS
For those members who have been allocated auction lots:
1) Follow the bagging rules on the back of your auction lots
That Is: Ensure Bags labels are placed vertically on the bag and have clear tape
over the top. Ensure you number your bags per the instruction on the back of
your lots. If you turn up to book in your fish and you have not put the lot number
on and put tape over, you will be sent away to fix. Your cooperation with the
instructions on the back of your lots will save our scrutineers a lot of time,
so please take the extra care. Please ensure you are also following the
sizing guide + make sure you bag your fish appropriately – if you
think the fish would be better in separate bags, then bag them separately!

2) Ensure you are in the hall with all bags labelled, taped and auction lot forms
filled out by1:15PM sharp! No lots will be accepted after this time!

3) If you think the fish you are entering is rare, or believe we may not have this fish in our
database of photos, please bring a photo along with you on a USB so we can upload the
picture for the auction. If we have a picture,more people are able to see what the
fish looks like before they commit to bidding!

BIDDING RULES

If you want to bid on a fish, please do so early to save any disappointment
when you miss out for bidding too late.  All bids are to be made in whole dollar units.
