How does the auction
There are two parts to the auction:

The auction committee is excited to announce it is bidding farewell to
paper bid sheets! During registration you will be given a handheld device
pre-loaded with every auction item. You can bid on items from anywhere and at
anytime during the event. The device allows you to place maximum bids, view
items with no bids, watch favorite items and you will receive instant outbid

representatives will be available throughout the night for any questions.
Look for the people with Bidpal Lanyards.
