brought in late will be auctioned off later on in the afternoon. Once the auctioneer starts selling items from the last table number selected by lottery, checking out will be suspended. After the last item is sold, 15 minutes will be

allowed for the computer operators to enter the remaining tags before checking out is resumed.
