Rules, Seller’s Sheets and Labels:

We will have both a regular verbal auction and a huge silent auction running throughout the day!

Buyers can find their choice of as many as 500 (or more!) lots of:
Locally Raised Freshwater Tropical Fish (cichlids, angels, livebearers, killies, fancy guppies, community fish, catfish, plecos and MORE!),
freshwater shrimp, other freshwater invertebrates,
locally raised aquatic amphibians (axolotls, newts and frogs), Goldfish,
Aquatic Plants, pond plants,

Though our sellers are mostly freshwater hobbyists, there are sometimes marine fish/inverts and frags as well.

Special Artwork Auction:
At 2:30 pm three beautiful pieces of aquarium artwork specially donated to MASI by Scalz Nature Artist Sam Scalz will be auctioned off as a fundraiser for the MASI Challenge, our annual charitable endeavor. This year we're supporting the Stuart Grant Fund, also known as the Net Busters. The artwork was shown in the March/April issue of the Darter on page 12, in the auction email letter sent out this past week, and posted on the MASI web page right after the meeting this coming week. Thanks to Sam Scalz for donating these works.

Breakfast and Lunch!
From 11:00 am to 1:00 pm, the hotel will have a concession stand right outside the auction room selling coffee, breakfast sandwiches, lunch sandwiches, chips and drinks. That way you don't have to miss the action while you're fueling up!

Buy one raffle ticket, be entered into all four raffles!
Four drawings will be made - one at 3:00 PM for a $50 gift certificate from Sailfin Pets in Champaign, IL; one at 3:30 PM for a $50 gift certificate from Sailfin Pets; and one each at 4:00 PM and 4:30 PM for a 75 gallon tank with tops and lights supplied by Tropical World Pets in St. Louis.
MUST be present to win.
Thanks to Tropical World Pets on Watson Road for supplying the tank, and to Sailfin Pets in Champaign, IL for supplying the gift certificates. Please support our donors as they support us.
