Quite a few things went low in the auction partly because the auctioneer was difficult to understand

Totally agree Bryce. BOTH auctioneers were hard to understand and the floor guys were pretty confusing as well. I've been to at least two dozen auctions and that one was the worst in terms of not knowing what was going on.

Thanks to everyone who came out to support the show and auction last week, overall it was a huge success!

The auction went well overall on our end, but we did learn a lot to improve upon for our next sale! Clearer bid callers being one of them! There were some good deals for those that stayed for the sale!

Again, thank you to everyone who came out and even though the weather wasn't ideal on Friday, we hope that everyone was able to add something cool to their collections!

I agree..thanks Aaron and Andy for taking that on. This was my first petro show and even though the weather stunk on Friday I still had a great time. Got to put some faces with names and check out some really cool stuff.

I agree 100%. I've been to a ton of auctions. I couldn't understand them, or knew where they were at with the price half of the time. I couldn't imagine trying to understand what was going on if this was your first auction.

I was impressed with the way you guys ran the show. Just drove to our spaces and set up. No hassle!! Sales were strong, and able to buy a couple of nice signs.

Glad to hear it went well for all that made it. Looking forward to going next year. (Just to finally meet Steve Coppens and collect that Beer that Steve Brazel owes me!!!)

As for the auction, kind of figured something was wrong as I pre-bid on 7 items thru Proxibid and won 6. I didn't really expect to win any of them...LOL


Thanks
Mike
