“Opening Bid” in the catalogue as well as the bid increase increments on the bid sheet.

3. Please note that all opening bid prices are approximately 50% of the value of the item.

4. No bid may be crossed out!

5. The Silent Auction will close all sections at 7:15 PM WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE
FACULTY/STAFF ITEMS WHICH WILL CLOSE FIRST AT 7:00 PM.

6. In the event of a dispute, the Auction official, Lori Hale, shall act as the final authority to determine the
