You can Register Now for Go Penguins Auction


Bid on your favourite penguin from anywhere in the world… 3 – 5 February 2010

I struggled at first to digest all the data but I hope I’m correcting in saying…
– You can register now if you intend to bid on any penguins (obviously only serious bidders should register – you need to provide id etc.)
– You can, of course see all 63 lots online now and they will be on public view at St George’s Hall on 3/4 Feb.
– The online auction starts at 09.00 on Wed 3 Feb so you can start placing bids.
– On Friday 5 Feb from 12 noon the bids close at 2 minute intervals, so Lot 1 closes at 12.02, Lot 2 at 12.04 etc. until they’re all gone around 14.00.

Hope that’s clear (and correct).
