Silent and Live Auctions

The Tuna Challenge Auction will be divided into two parts; Silent and Live. At the Silent Auction you will have ample time to casually view each of the items available and write your bid down next to any item you are interested in. The Silent Auction will be closed at staggered times to allow participants to concentrate on items of special interest. All Silent Auction items will have initial starting bids. Silent bidding will commence for all items offered at the onset of the festivities and close after ample announcement.
