Hmmm...so far, I have a couple of 10 gallons, a 1G hex, 2-3 filters, a powerhead, some plants, some lights, a few assorted fish...possibly a larger tank or two, some assorted odds and sods.

The auction should be huge....looks like we will have 625-775 lots, with lots and bidders coming in from all over the province....it may be our largest ever auction.

So if we have that many lots, does anyone have any idea as to how long the auction will go for? Also, is there any particular order as to how items are auctioned off?

The auction will probably run until 4:30-5:00 with this many lots. We pick tables at random to auction off, but if there are lots that you want auctioned at any particular time, you can have them 'bumped' (for $2/item) to be in the next couple of items to go under the gavel.

Looks like it will be mostly sunny and about 6ºC-8ºC Sunday....Monday doesn't look so pretty, though.
