Step 2: Online Registration for the Public Lot Selection via Eventbrite

Registration Closes: 4pm on Wednesday April 8, 2020
 

Rules and Regulations

  • Only 1 registration per address or household will be accepted
  • Registrants must be 18-years or older
  • You may register as an individual or company name, but not both
    Should more than 1 person per household (people living at the same address) and/or more than 1 person per company register for the Public Lot Selection, all of the registrants from that household or company will automatically be disqualified and those registrations will not be included in the random draw.   
  • All interested buyers must register online through Eventbrite for their name to be entered into the random draw.
  • After registration closes and duplicate registrations have been disqualified, we will draw 100 registrants at random who will then be qualified to participate in the lot selection process.

Registration Selection

The first 40 registrants drawn will be notified by email of their lot selection priority number and will be invited to the Lot Selection Event to select and purchase a lot in the order of their priority number.

Successful registrants are not required to purchase a lot if their desired choices of lots have been sold to one of the prior registrants.

Since there are 31 lots available for sale, the successful registrants assigned number 32 or higher may or may not have an opportunity to select a lot. This is dependent on the possibility of other registrants not attending or deciding not to purchase any available lots.

Should there be remaining lots after the Lot Selection event, remaining registrants will be contacted in priority sequence at a later date.

If all lots have been sold, remaining drawn registrations will be held in priority sequence should any sales not proceed.
