Hi, Mike. This looks like an improvement for vendors, with the main auction moving to Friday, rather than being in the middle of a vending day, as before. Thanks for posting this info. John

setting themselves up for controversy again... everyone knows vending begins when setup begins... there is no controlling that.

should have said no setup until Weds AM

MY GOD THEN DON'T GO!

Are you guys trying to win the Dick Bennett award!
I considered Dick my friend and he once told me "that he sometimes finds himself more happy when he's unhappy"... LOL

So because you can't take the time off for this show, it's important to complain about the show.......LMAO

I posted this thread to show the new schedule and to let vendors like myself know what the times are this year. Iowa Gas has a location where the sellers cannot be blocked out and so that being it allows vendors to get set up early. If there is no one buying when they set up, then they are not vending! Everyone gets there and want's to find a score so they start looking thru the vendors stuff. I have had people climb right in my trailer and start looking before I'm even fully parked!
The problem isn't just with the guys running the show, it's also with us as vendors and collectors who want to find that one score or sell a item to give us some more cash!

I like Iowa because of it's size and location to where it brings in friends from all around the country that I sometimes only get to see once a year. I have been going for 17 years and I pre-sell some stuff, sell a few things in the swap but most of all I have found a whole lot of nice stuff and made some great friendships along the way.

Geez, I love you guys but why do we keep beating this dead horse. Don't go if you don't like the way it's run. Myself, I'm going to go and complain about the heat, enjoy a few cold ones and look forward to a schedule that allows me a few days of room to room and outdoor swaps and a couple of auctions and still be home for the Weekend!

Just my opinion guys!


Thanks
Mike

Well said Mike M., I couldn't agree more. It will be my 21st year and I've never complained about the show. I'm just happy they still have the show and adjust my own schedule accordingly.

Yeah, It’s still a great show with tons of great buys. ANY day at a gas and oil show is way better than a day at work or sitting at home. You just have to get to this one early.

I do wish it included some of the weekend though.

its obvious iowa gas will continue the way it has been for many years.... a full week of activities. i have come to terms with it. looks like they are trying to do right with the auction, and with Route 32 running it, it will be great.

i wish the show used more of a weekend schedule, but my mom always said "you can wish in one hand, and ***** in the other... see which one fills up faster"

ill do what i normally do, ill take wednesday off of work and ill drive there and back all in one day.

Last year I flew out to the show, got there Tuesday at noon and flew home Thursday evening. I worked Monday and Friday that week and it worked out just perfect. I wasn't too concerned about the auction though.
