***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.

Cichlids lots normally come in later as sellers try and get size on them prior to sale.

We have gradually been increasing the number of cichlid lots in recent times, but sometimes it is difficult to get enough as prices have been very cheap.

There are some great Tropheus lots up for sale, many are SGCF lots as well. They are perfect starter colonies as well as there are 10in each lot. Most are rare in Perth so hopefully we get some good buyers showing up.

Below is the Auction Listing with sellers.

 

You will note that some lots are highlighted in yellow.

 

We have decided to try a new auction method for a few of the lots to make life a little more interesting and hopefully speed up the auction. These lots will be auctioned on a "Dutch" auction basis.

 

In simple terms, the auctioneer begins with an asking price, and lowers it until some participant accepts the price, or it reaches a predetermined reserve price. First person to bid is the winner.

Hi all, for anyone bagging fish or plants could you double-check the bag has no leaks when on its side please through the top of bag (i.e. rubber banded well). This is because bags will be placed so they are stable on the auction table, which means they are placed standing upright or side. Many thanks!

Great night everyone, I was totally expecting a mostly boring night waiting for the lots I was interested in but instead it was a bunch of laughs the whole way through. Very happy with the lots I brought and you know you've got a good wife when she's happy I didn't go over $500, only spent $428 ;-P. So thanks to all the breeders for the fish and thanks to the committee for putting it on.

 

Cheers all, now back to acclimatising fish.
