Welcome to the BCC-JCG Annual Silent Auction. So that you may enjoy this event, please be familiar with the rules of the auction:

  1. A complete list of all items will be supplied to potential bidders at the auction site.
  2. Each item will have a bid sheet with a description of the item, the minimum opening bid, and the dollar increment rules. Some items have required minimum opening bids placed by the donors. If the required minimum bid is not met, the item must be withdrawn from the auction. In such cases the bid sheet will be removed.
  3. Silent Auction: Each participant will receive a bid number at registration. Each bid sheet will have the opening bid listed . To make a bid, simply put your bid number next to your desired bid amount.
  4. Advance Bids: You may make an advanced bid using the form on the next page. Extra forms can be requested or you can get a copy of the form from our web site. Advanced bids are due no later than 4:00 PM on Friday, November 1.
  5. At closing time, bid sheets will be collected. Results will be available approximately one half hour after the last category closing. At that time successful bidders may make payments and retrieve items that are on the premises.
  6. All items may be claimed and removed from the premises directly after the auction on Sunday, November 18at Farmland Elementary School.
