Silent Auction Process and Bidding Information


Each of the above lots is in a card attached to a silent auction bid sheet.  As with many silent auctions, you can see the stamps and write in a bid on the bid sheet at our KPS meetings.  If you can't attend a meeting, you can send Bruce Roberts ( a bid on any lot.  If it is higher than the current high bid, Bruce will write your name on the sheet with your bid.  You don't have to be present to win a lot(s).  If you win your lot(s) can mail the lot to you or you can pick up at the KPS meeting.  Postage will be added to your invoice if mailed, but there is no commission on the sales of any lots.


To prevent a lot of shoving and anguish among members trying to place last minute bids at the live meeting, we have arranged to have a round of "live" bidding before the lots are hammered down, BUT ONLY AMONG PEOPLE WHO had already placed a written bid on the bid sheet (live or via email).  During this time Zoom will be on so all members can observe the auction, but no bidding can be done by Zoom.  Brent Marquand will be acting as auction agent for those not present; he will have their max bids previously emailed, and will bid on their behalf.
