Anyone may Buy or Sell. Register your items on mygroupauctions.com
At the NC State Fairgrounds in Raleigh.
More Info on the RAS website >>> http://www.raleighaquariumsociety.org/main.html
You can view all the registered auction items on mygroupauctions.com. Sign yourself up, choose which club affiliation(s) you want, choose an auction (Raleigh, Sep 22) then you can add your items and view everyone else's items for those clubs' auctions. The Potomac Valley club (PVAS) created this, and several fish coast clubs now use it -- very handy tool.
In reality, many of us don't get all our items registered until the day before or morning of the auction, so the number of items registered (especially livestock) can double or triple in the last 24 hrs before the auction starts.
The NC Art Museum, Natural Science, History, and Marbles Kids Museums are all within a few miles, in case some of your fellow travelers have limited patience with fish auctions. Also, the Fairgrounds hosts a huge Flea Market all weekend.www.ncstatefair.org/fleamarket/
