·         You can pay cash or we can accept MasterCard, VISA Debit, VISA Credit and PayPal.
·         All lots must be pre-booked, with no exceptions. See this guide before you book in - HERE.
·         General public are welcome to attend, so please bring your friends along.

You will have a short period in which to view the lots commencing at 7:45pm. View the lots carefully before bidding as once you win, you own it. The lot area will be sectioned off and we ask that everyone remain behind the sectioned off area at all times, with the exception of the viewing period. Lots will only be dispersed at the end of the auction. This means you will need to remain until the end and be patient to collect your winning lots. The lots will be collected by PCS Committee members for you. Nobody is permitted to collect their own lots.
 
The PCS Raffle will feature great items and as major prizes -
 
1st prize - from Aquaplenish.

***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.

*** PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN BOXES TO TRANSPORT FISH AND GOODS - THESE WILL NOT BE PROVIDED***
 
Please bring your own boxes and bags to the auction to transport fish and goods home with you. If you bring your own boxes, please ensure you write your name on them to identify that they belong to you.
