***NEW AUCTION GUIDELINES
 
The number of auction lots will be at the discretion of the PCS Committee, however to ensure the evening does not run too late, the number of lots will be capped around 150. 
 
To assist sellers in determining what lots to submit, the following should be considered:
·         Cichlid lots will take preference to any other lots;
·         To encourage sellers to submit cichlid lots, the PCS has discounted the commission it will take from the sale price (5% vs 10% for non-cichlid lots);
·         While duplicate lots will be accepted, at the discretion of the PCS committee, lots may be removed in the interest of fairness and variety. Duplicate lots from the same seller will be those initially selected for removal. Duplicate lots from different sellers will be accommodated as best as possible. Sellers will be notified should this occur;
·         PCS will attempt to include all sellers submitting lots, however preference will be given to those submitting lots 2 weeks prior to auction night; and
·         All perishable items (e.g. food, chemicals, water treatments) will not be accepted unless they are sealed (i.e. unused).
 
There are a few things people need to be aware of for auction -

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          
General public are welcome to attend.
·         All lots will be inspected on the night and any lots with deformed,unidentifiable or undersized fish will be removed.
·         All lots will  have the seller's forum name listed on the bag.
·         Fish bagged incorrectly will not be accepted. No sandwich bags or zip-lock bags allowed.
·         Please make sure your fish are adequately bagged. If they are large fish, put each in a separate bag.
·         When booking lots, please use reserve prices sparingly  for the expensive stuff. No reserves will be accepted below $20
·         When bidding on the night please remember that collection and payment of lots will only take place at the end of the auction.
·         At the end of the auction your lots will be collected and given to you by a committee member. Do not touch any lots.
·         Only club members can sell lots at the auction but you can become one on the night. Anyone can bid/buy.
·         The PCS takes a 10% commission on all sales at the auction.
·         Non PCS club members pay an additional 10% of total sale price per lot.
·         Atwell College is not a licensed venue and alcohol is not permitted. Anyone drinking at the site will be asked to leave.
·         No smoking is permitted at Atwell College, you need to go out the front away from the entrance.
·         There are limited lots in the auction and cichlids then other fish take priority. The committee has discretion in refusing lots and reserves in the interests of balance and pacing.

It was a great night as always. A lot of cheap bargains to be had last night and quality fish.

 

Special thanks to Belinda for helping us in the kitchen, what a super star! 

 

Thanks to MKF Chemicals for coming along and giving out a box of free samples for members to try.

 

Thanks to new committee members for stepping up and helping out right away.

 

Thanks to Mike for the donation of Black Calvus for the PCS aquarium on display and Mattia for hooking us up with goods and services to maintain it.

 

Don't miss the next auction. A reminder that it will be in October instead of November as we have people away in Lake Malawi.

 

Thanks

Don't want to push the friendship but I'd be interested in seeing how well the tangs and in particular,helldwellers did per fish - seemed like they were attracting really good prices
