Auction over now and first chance to comment what withlining up to pay,then lining up to be paid, then 6 lots to squeeze into the car.
The bandits came last and prices were low, i got the BDR i wanted for 325 which was cheap to me, the jennings didnt sell, i got a kingsway for restoration for 150 and the better clubmaster (original locks,keys etc) for 600, cant remember the price of the gold award bandit from carters but it was sold below the reserve price.the bryans double decker got to 2000 but didnt reach the reserve, the buckley bones was offered at the end of the auction for sale at 5500 but no takers! The cheapest one you will ever see :o
A good day,in comfortable suroundings,the guys worked hard as usual, and anounced next years auction but the dste is....to be confirmed :tut

Might I ask the price of the Earth Satellite machine please. I couldn't get over to the auction today - but this was the one I really had my eye on. Thanks

I had a really great day today and bought too much as usual. Huge thanks to Jerry and the team for organising this marvellous event, and for the vendors of course in providing machines, particularly the guys who refurbish machines and frankly keep this hobby alive. Vintage arcade machines kick ass :-)

Highlight for me was the electric shock Allwin deluxe, which does electrocute, it's not just vibration. Hell yeah.
Suck on that, health & safety.

BDR looked alright and probably right money. Shame no stand. I recall one of these stands selling at Elephant selling real cheap, like 10 quid and recall who bought it, he may still have it as it's nice with the machine.

The beer at the venue is great, really nice pint of London Pride for £2.90. Like being back in the 1990s. :cool:

Didn't buy much, but sold all my lots bar one machine as I had either no reserves or low ones. I hope buyers are happy as having a clear out. Included a brand new Shefras escalator with paperwork in original box - what a Novelty. Lots more bargains to come.

Thanks to all for organising.

Mr treefrog, when you have a clear out do you offer them at ebay or the market place?
I think you all had a very nice sunday, enjoy all your new toys. !!YABBADABBA!!

Just a quick comment from The Coventry Mismanagement Team.
As always grateful thanks to you all.
As I've been known to say in previous years. "So long as I enjoyed myself, that's all that matters", and I did.

Several new faces in the younger band of the age group, which is always good. Our prize lot the Buckley Bones did go, at the end, find another one!

The best comment from the day was uttered to me by our Special Star Guest ......
Me (running across the car park in the dark) "Clive, did you pick up my bag of Dollars?"
Clive (Boiling a saucepan of water on a gas stove) "No, but it's possible, would you like a Mars Bar?"

Now feeling concerned for the safety of many of our friends driving the back lanes of Warwickshire between Coventry and Leamington I have made enquiries about moving our venue to next door to the L'spa event, no luck so far though.

We do have another plan, we shall run an auction next year, but due to the blatantly unimaginable diary held by others, next year we shan't tell anyone when.
