Members' Auction Rules and Regulations
Rule 1 SMALL KOI
(ii) If more than 30 fish are offered in a bin the Auction Master will direct removal of the excess number which cannot then be sold at the auction site.
This condition will be strictly adhered to.
(iii) All small koi offered for sale must be in good health and free from faults, damage, and other disorders otherwise they will be removed at the Auction Master's direction and impounded until end of the auction.
Rule 2 LARGE KOI
Rule 3 AUCTION BOOKING AND SELLING ARRANGEMENTS
(ii) Auctions will be limited to 120 bins with a maximum of 4 bins per member (unless auctions remain unfilled when the Auction Master may allow additional bins per member).
(iv) Sellers unable to attend the auction must personally contact the Auction Master a minimum of one week beforehand. Alternative arrangements may be entered into at the Auction Master's discretion; otherwise, the bin(s) allocation will be forfeited and the usual bin fee will apply.
Rule 4 AUCTION SETTING UP ARRANGEMENTS
(ii) Auctions will commence at 10.00 am.
(iii) All sellers are required to assist in performing jobs allocated by the Auction Master. Anyone authorised by the Auction Master to bring fish for another member must be prepared to assist or to allocate someone else to do so. Failure to assist in setting up arrangements and jobs allocated by the Auction Master may result in withdrawal of fish from sale and (may) jeopardise a seller’s future entitlement to sale bins.
(iv) Any seller physically incapable of performing allocated job(s) should inform the Auction Master before the auction date (if possible) otherwise, at time of job allocation.
(v) Sellers may nominate a reserve (minimum) price for their koi. Details must be provided to the Auction Master prior to commencement of the auction at 10.00 am.
(vi) Under no circumstances may sellers discuss or otherwise canvass with potential buyers the merits of their own fish over those of other sellers. Once fish are in bins, their sale is the sole prerogative of the Club and its auctioneer.
(ii) Koi may be sold directly to AKA members or other loi keepers belonging to a koi hobbyist association.
(iii) Members found selling koi privately at official AKA auctions will be required to pay the AKA a fee of 20% of the sale price and may jeopardise their future entitlement to auction bins.
