I will be there along with many other APUGgers. Ask for me at the door and I'll give you a get-in-free card.
We have an auction going on the evening of the 12th, with many very reasonable items. I think, because the crowd is often mainly dealers at this particular auction, that anyone willing to pay about 60% of what the retail would be on any item will usually get what he or she wants. Dealers have to leave a lot of mark-up in their bids and will not pay more than 50% of what they will get for something. Things that are not likely to be immediate turn-arounds on dealer tables often go for a song. We are determined not to take this stuff home folks – help us clear out the warehouse!
