marking out the empty spaces (that's what I do). And you don't even need to
use a transparent highlighter, any marker will work; any bids written over
the marks are invalid. Doesn't really matter which you do, as long as it's
consistent and solves the problem.
Agreed that signage is very important. Half the bidders won't read them, but
you can still point their way when there's a problem. Oh, have it written
that the auction director/manager/grand-poobah has the -final- word on
what's a valid bid and has the ability to resolve disputes. Put that in the
"better to have it now and not need it" category.
Please let us know how it goes, I won't be there (otherwise, I'd offer to help).
