    Also my opinion on this auction was abit mixed. In the past the postal bids come in DURING the auction if it were to win it. I saw multiple auctions sell with the reserve already met and people who thought they won it for "eg" $100, Auctioneer says it sold for $101 for the postal bidder AFTER the final bid of $100 was placed and he said going once, going twice.... One lot in particular was bid on for $800 and the auctioneer closed that auction at $825 AFTER the final bid was placed and gave no chance for anyone to beat it.

    This I found unfair as you literally were blind bidding and I saw alot of postal bids become maxed out. The auctioneer also had a tendency to skip lots and got alot of people confused on what they were bidding on.

    Every seat was full, so that was a bonus and had a good time. Never the less, There is alot of room for improvement.

    The auctioneer should call postals in the auction, eg floor bid of 1900, he calls 1910 to me or country, and so on otherwise it is unfair to all bidders.

    There was a Winchester M70 there in a Swedish Mauser. Anyone know how old it was and what price it went for?

    Did they have the usual hillbillies wearing cammo fleece and gumboots who looked like they were going pig hunting instead of to an auction?

    Always good to see them walking through the hotel reception areas, making a good impression on the guests.
