The auction, to be held Sept. 4 and 5, features more than 4,275 items, including the 6.8-acre sport fishing lodge in Sandspit. There are no minimum bids or reserve prices. Bids will be accepted at the auction site, online in real time at or by placing proxy bids in person or by phone, the company said. “It’s not every day that a sport fishing lodge goes up for sale-let alone one being sold by unreserved public auction where anyone can bid-this is a very unique opportunity,” said Jim Rotlisberger, Regional Sales Manager, Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers.
