How do the yearly YN auctions work?

 I was reading through some blog posts about the YN auctions, and I still can't find any info. on how they are run. I was hopeful if anyone on here knew how they work, and how to bid on the yearly auction.

I beleive they have info in the latest edition of your newsletter. If you go on youtube and look up ANA YN auction you can find videos of previous auctions.

Nub if anyone knows you do. With your book reports and two blogs a day but your not a professional critic. And there's no way you read all those books. They sound more like the jackets from the book. You get you information from outdated articles on Wikipedia. And there almost  almost word for word.the sad part is we all know some of us have tried to tell you. Either read the whole book you must own at least two hundred and please write about what you know. Got that what you know. Then there won't be two blogs a day of outdated books and old article you think we all don't know. I'm the only one who will tell you. Your hurting yourself. Your not learning your a yn you have to be and I never in all my years met a kid who knows more than most collectors I wonder why. You and the rest of us know . Now more bibliographies. We ask because we want to see were your getting information on all these coins you own. I can't put up the picture the coin is to beautiful remember that one. Please there are hundreds more and you don't even remember. Become a collector like we all did. Learn. There is nothing wrong with learning. We help yn's everyday. There is no shame. We all had to crawl before we walked. You started off running. There is no race. The blogs we write like myself I own every coin. I was a history major in college. Just learn read the books. Don't win a collection sounding like Hemingway. You write like a 40 year old collector. So please do yourself a favor. Learn like we all did. The honest way this way you will remember what you wrote. You will know more about coins. It's a process it takes time. We did it the old fashion way the honest way and were better off for it. We picked up on you so fast. So for yourself buy coins you said you have a job after school remember that one. Help  yourself. That's all I'm asking. The first part I'm sorry I had to write but it's for your own good. We know I refuse to comment on your blog. There was one I did when you wrote it. There were words you could say in it. It was good. These are cut and paste. You want to be a collector don't do it like this. Please. Write your own . I ask so you will become a collector a good one. Isn't that what you want to be? Isn't that why your here. Then help yourself. Give yourself a chance. You will be a better person for it and a great collector. There is no end to this race. So slow.down. Pat by the way we will all help you. I would drop my hat to help you and you know it. Think about it. It's about you and we care. That's why we're here. It's up to you my friend. Think it over we here to help anyway we can go make you  better collector and friend.

 Pat if you looked at this thread it was posted ten months ago when I first joined the ANA. I am sorry you feel  this way, and to be honest I have read all of those books, but after Inside the Rare Coin Market I have depleted my source of new books, and now I am looking for more. I am so glad that you help me when you do. I will try my best to put bibliographies on my blogs from now on. I really appreciate the time you took to actually write this. Thank you.

Nub, I like what you said to Pat just now..I asked a while ago in one of your blogs the following. Are these reports from books you currently read or in the past. I ask as I was a voracious reader at what I believe, may be your age. I did notice a bibliography on your current blog and thank you....
