Q. If I scratch my nose or wave at a friend, will the auctioneer think I'm bidding?

We hear this misconception a lot! In fact, to bid at an auction or for your bid to be recognized by the auctioneer, you typically need a bidder number. You will receive this bidder number at registration. This number allows the auction company to know who is bidding from the list of registered bidders. If you mistakenly bid or the auctioneer misinterprets your movement as a bid, immediately notify either the auctioneer or their staff.
