I'll be sure to bring that up at the next board meeting so we can get more details on the website. In short...

It is a fish and plants ONLY auction that will occur at the August MAS monthly meeting. Same location and same time as the meetings (King of Kings Lutheran School in Roseville). All items will have to be pre-registered before noon/midday on that Thursday - though I'm not 100% sure on the exact time.

I may be incorrect on the exact quantity, but I believe any one person is limited to 10-15 items total. We are not doing equipment, tanks, hardware, foods, or other dry-good type items.

In my opinion limiting the number of items means that sellers bring in their best items and that buyers can get the best value for their bids. Plus by limiting the total number of items we can auction all items in an hour or two versus the full day required to get through 750+ items when we are in Bloomington.
The Farm (20): Otos, rummynose, cory pygmaeus, amano shrimp and a lone GBR
Rolling Rocks (10): Cherry shrimp, BB endlers and 2 baby L262 'salt queens'
Mishmash Jungle(28): SS endlers, penguin tetra, cory sterbai, bn pleco

100 bag auction occurs in August at regular MAS meeting. Last year (2016) was the first 100 bag auction. The idea is there is a big gap between Spring and Fall auctions held in Bloomington and this auction sort of fills the need of folks needing a Summer auction.

Last year the limit was 5 bags per seller and all sellers must be MAS members. I believe non MAS members are allowed to bid at this 100 bag auction.
As already noted only livestock is allowed. NO HARD GOODS.

Last year the monthly BAP/HAP auction occurred first before 100 bag auction. ONLY MAS members are allowed to bid on BAP/HAP items.

Payment maybe cash, check or credit card on site.

This is not official. It you want an official answer, use aquarium.mn and submit a question on line there. You will get an answer.
Like a complete unknown
