  1. Members may not get in line to complete their transactions until the completion of the General Meeting.
  2. An announcement will be made when the Treasurer is ready to finalize transactions with the members.
  3. Those members who purchased lots in the auction will be requested to line up first to finalize transactions for the auction lots which they had won.
  4. Once completed, a second announcement will be made. Individuals who sold auction lots will then reconcile their transactions. This will include sold and unsold items, which will be returned to the seller.

[NOTE: Should a member express an interest in purchasing an unsold item, they must do so directly with the consignor. TBCC will no longer complete transactions for unsold items in the “check out” process]
