He thinks it is, I think even the biggest doubters can now see it's intentional. dirtdog

I wonder if Coventry changed its date to a week before would he change his date.

There was every likelihood he was going to do that, we'll just move to the Sunday before.

When SH started the auctions in Leamington a few years back, I remember Jimmy Cowman asking "Isn't there enough room for two?" I guess the answer according to SH is now obvious.

Nothing's set in stone yet - we may consider moving the date, but I think we should all be mindful that the date for the Coventry auction was set over seven months ago (actually on the day of last year's auction) and I am not in the habit of dancing to the tune of others, especially not his.

OK, just so that we all know where we stand.
I've received several emails and a phone call asking if we're changing the date for Coventry this year. Answer: no.
Too much is already booked for 26th Nov., including hotel rooms and even air flights.
And frankly, I don't really understand why we should be messing with the date anyway.
