  1. The online pre-registration form will hold all of your contact information. It is important that the form be filled out completely and all info is correct.  If we need to contact you before, during or after the auction, this will be the info on file.
  2. Pre-registered customers will complete the online customer form with information provided by you. Please review and sign.

  4. Bar Code Labels – A pre-printed bar-coded label will be issued for each item you want to sell with your CUSTOMER# and an ITEM#.
  5. Listing Items – Each item must be listed on your CUSTOMER FORM and each item may also have a 3x5 index card attached to the item with descriptive information provided by the seller. Sellers need to make sure each item and matching 3x5 index card for that item reference the same exact CUSTOMER # and ITEM #.
  6. Affixing Your Labels & Index Cards – Carefully affix your auction provided label with CUSTOMER# and ITEM# to the item and then affix the 3x5 index card description to the item.
  7. Check in with Volunteer – Once you have prepared all your items with the item label and a 3x5 index card (optional), see a CHECK-IN VOLUNTEER to assist you with your physical check- in of items.
  8. If for any reason you need special arrangements for your item(s), please contact the auction customer service table before starting the check-in process.
  9. Acceptable Items – RC hobby-related items such as airplanes, jets, cars, helicopters, gliders, radios, engines, FPV items, tools, aviation-related items. No magazines, fuel or junk!  All glow/gas powered models must have all fuel removed from tank and fuel lines.  We reserve the right to reject items for sale that do not meet auction standards.
  10. Packaging & Grouping Items – All items must have a realistic value of at least $25. We reserve the right to reject any items for sale that do not meet auction standards. Several items of lesser value may be grouped together for a combined value of $25. Small or grouped items should be securely packaged in plastic and/or securely attached to each other to form one item. Small short rolls of shrink wrap work well and can be purchased at local hardware stores.  Try to arrange items so all parts can easily be seen by the bidders. Small items must be placed in a zip lock bag and must be stapled shut.
  11. Pricing Your Items – You have 2 options for pricing your items: MINIMUM PRICE and BUY IT NOW PRICE
    a. MINIMUM PRICE NEW THIS YEAR – all items for sale must list a MINIMUM price, no lower than $25. The MINIMUM should be set to the lowest price that the Seller is willing to accept during the live auction. When the item goes up for auction, no item will be sold for less than the minimum specified – without the seller’s approval. It may be necessary to contact you during the auction, so be sure to list your cell number on your CUSTOMER FORM. (If pre-registering, the online form is your Customer Form). If there are no offers of, at least, the specified minimum bid the item will be sent to a PASS Table (Pass Table explained below).
    b. BUY-IT-NOW – NEW THIS YEAR – all items for sale must list a Buy-It-Now price, allowing all items for sale to be purchased before going to the auction block. The BUY-IT-NOW price is set above the minimum and is set at a level that the Seller feels the item will sell at during the live auction. This allows those buyers that may not be able to stay for the full auction the opportunity to acquire an item that the seller feels is a fair price. BUY-IT-NOW prices may not be added or changed after an item has been checked in.
  12. IMPORTANT NOTE – Minimum price and/or a BUY-IT-NOW price must be listed on the item label AND on your CUSTOMER FORM. 
  13. BUY-IT-NOW AND PURCHASED PASS TABLE ITEMS MUST BE PAID FOR AND REMOVED IMMEDIATELY.
  14. PASS TABLEPlease use good judgment when setting minimum prices. If any item does not receive a winning bid, it will be sent to the PASS TABLE. At the PASS TABLE, the BUY-IT-NOW prices are no longer in effect and items may be purchased for the MINIMUM.  Buyer may make offers less than specified item minimums subject to negotiation with the seller.
  15. THIS IS A ONE-DAY AUCTION ONLY. ALL UNSOLD ITEMS, ANY NEWLY PURCHASED ITEMS, PAYMENTS DUE AND PICKING UP YOUR CHECK FOR SOLD ITEMS – MUST ALL BE DONE NO LATER THAN 4PM ON SATURDAY NIGHT.

If there are any questions – please contact the customer service table for additional information.
