How the Auction Works!
This is a fun meeting. Enjoy it for what it is. An opportunity for HRFA members to sell some of those unused fishing items they no longer use and another opportunity to buy some new items at bargain prices. It is also a lot of fun to bid on these items. You will enjoy this meeting!
If you have any items you would like to put up for auction, place one of our labels on it and put a minimum price you would like to get on it. When that item comes up for bid, the bidding will start at that price and goes up from there. You get what ever the selling price is less the HRFA 10%. Thats it! Simple, huh! Only fishing related items will be allowed to be put up for bid: Rods, Reels, Boats, Boating Equipment, tackle, etc. but NO FIREARMS! No Weapons!
How about those fishing socks you got last Christmas?! Sell them!!!
At the end of the meeting, you will receive your money for your items. If you have items for less than $9, they will not be put up for auction but will be put on a separate table to be sold at face value. Again, you will be reimbursed for those items at the end of the evening.
Placing items up for bid is restricted to HRFA members ONLY! If you are not a member it will cost you $25 to participate which includes membership .
HRFA Auction Procedures
Due to the number of items being put up for bid, certain procedures are needed. Some of these procedures will provide better identification of items being put up for bid. Other changes will be for administrative purposes. The main point our members will be concerned with is the labeling procedure for all items. All items must have the following label attached to them. If you have any items to enter into the club auction, contact Rocco Moretto BEFORE December 1 to acquire your labels! The number of items being put up for bid will be limited to 20 per member if picked up before the December meeting. Labels will be available at the door but limited to only five labels!
