RE:M-H Barn Equipment.
Interesting you note the price of gas Malcolm - to be absolutely correct for our transatlantic friends with their smaller gallon it equates to about  $8.90 a gallon.

I wonder what effect the price of gas is going to have on the show circuit this year?  Will it deter the general visiting public and will it deter people from exhibiting?

I personally now really look to "Value".  What will I personally get out of a visit to a show or an auction?  So many shows are just the same each year and you can almost walk around them blindfold with mostly the same exhibits.  So many show organisers are stuck in ruts - they need to take lesons from shops and supermarkets and re-arrange their exhibits like they do to keep the consumers interested.

With the auctions we increasingly find that the auctioneers do not have their catalogues up in good time - say 2 weeks before - which means it makes it difficult for potential buyers to make arrangements and decisions.  They seem oblivious to our pleas for timely catalogues

Do tell us what's happening re the gas and other matters on your side of the pond.
