I hope i answer this ok, but here's the story.
the sale on saturday is a limited sale where in each participant is allowed to
only buy a certain amount of bags of fish at a set price. Attendance is limited
to convention attendedees and only so many aquarists are allowed into the fish
sale room at a time, with who gets to go first based on a priority system to be
worked out by the host club. So I would recommend that you register early,
because I think that is how the priority numbers are going to be worked out. Of
course a large bribe to Mr. Fish will help get you into the room earlier then
many who don't do that.
The auction will feature the show fish as well as many other killies sent just
for the auction. The auction is open to any one with money, simple enough. So
the auction will have people from the local area who have not attended the
convention but wish to bid on the excellent selection of fish available.
How'd I do Harry and Charlie.
and looking forward to seeing you there.
