Color Tags for Auction Order
Sellers will be issued color tags to be placed on bags to be sold. Sellers will receive an equal number of color tags so that their fish will be distributed in color lots throughout the auction. The order of the auction is determined by a random drawing of the color tags prior to the auction.
The seller can designate any item to be a donation to the GCCA.
For a $3 fee, any registered buyer or seller may bring any item from any color group up for immediate sale at any time during the auction. For sellers, this is a great way to ensure that rare fish can be auctioned during the peak period of the event.
