I know these things can't always be helped Graham but I thought Rob Rusbridge [although independent] was on the Radiophile Team re his articles for the mag etc. His auction is also on the 9th of June and has been booked in for a while It's an unfortunate clash perhaps?

Thanks Dave - I wasn't aware of the clash. I'll talk to Chas to see if there's anything he can do. I know that he usually arranges Cowbit auctions to coincide with a holiday in the area, but it doeasn't seem to make much sense having two auctions on the same day.

I'll update here once I've spoken to Chas.

OK Graham. I think that could be a great help. He has gained praise for attempting to do auctions north and south to provide a service all the way up from Cornwall+pasties. Progress seems to have been a bit slow but he is patient in building things up with good humour. People who attended have found bargains! In the North he's around Preston and South was going to be High Wycombe but those two [out of a total of four for this year] seem to have let him down. Ironically I have relatives in Bicester and nearby High Wycombe but I hope to make the Northern venue in June [further details on this section readers]. I should say that I don't know Rob personally but I like his style. A true individual-like Chas!

I think, more importantly the 8th December Radiophile date clashes with the BVWS Wootton Bassett event.

I've spoken to Chas, and apparently the dates the halls were available were extremely limited. In the end the dates chosen were the best compromises that Chas could make. The fact that the 2 clashing auctions are quite a distance away (Cowbit / Preston & Gnosall / RWB) means that the overlap of people who would go to both is very small.

Thanks Graham. Its not unusual for "same day" events to occur and I appreciate that venues seem to be more limited these days! It was just the conjunction between Rob and yourselves that puzzled me. Things seem to be changing overall as well on the, local, auction front as everyone gets older and the emphasis shifts!

I don't mind the Cowbit event being on the same day as my Great North Folly at Chorley. To drive from Chorley to Cowbit is about a day's work, so I think it's very unlikely very many people will find themselves in a dither as to which way to go. Anyone who lives about half way will probably decide either event is too far away to bother with.

Anyway, I am feeling quite secure about it all. They don't have proper Cornish Pasties at Cowbit.
