If you have never participated in a Silent Auction before don't worry. It's simple.
The start of each silent auction will be announced and will run for approximately 30 minutes. Once the auction is open you may browse and bid on items. Each item has a suggested retail value and a minimum bid. On the sheet for the item you may place your bid in even dollar amounts starting at the minimum or above current highest bid. Individuals continue to bid in increasing round dollar amounts until the announcement of the end of the auction. Once the auction has closed the highest bidder wins the auction, pays winning bid amount and collects their item. If you still have questions stop by and talk to the friendly folks at the Silent Auction table at the show.
