I just got my vendor confirmation and it looks like the rules have changed again. The vendor setup starts at noon on Tuesday. I will have to change plans and get there Monday like last year. I was looking forward to the Wednesday 7:00 PM start.

7/14: the confirmation arrives with yet a deviation from the new schedule to the old schedule.

1. I have to contact the holiday inn for modifying the reservation.
2. I have to schedule another vacation day at work.
3. I have to re-arrange my work appointments to accommodate Iowa Gas late schedule modification.

Completely un-professional and inconsiderate on behalf of Iowa Gas to modify the schedule with 2 weeks notice. In addition, reverting back to the old schedule makes a mockery out of the previously touted statement/letter firmly announcing the new schedule.

Not changing my schedule. Still can't sell until 6:30 Wednesday so we will get there Wednesday morning. Don't have to have another day in the motel or another day for truck rental.

There is no plausible scenario in which selling does not begin Tuesday morning if not earlier.

There is no change or announcement on the Iowa Gas website. You would think they could update any changes there.

There are no "real" changes guys, read the schedule completely.... all they are doing is allowing you to set up in your spots Tuesday after noon. Selling is not allowed on the property till Wednesday at 6:30pm and the permit for selling is only Wed-Thur-Fri.


Thanks

Well Dang it, I have never been and am planning on it this year even though last minute, wont be there until Wednesday and leave Friday, ARG! I guess any Veltex that might show up Tuesday has less competition.

Not quite true Mike! You can only pull into your spot, you can't set up any merchandise until 7pm on Wednesday.

I sure hope they enforce it or no one will ever believe them again.

Sorry Kevin that's what I meant, I was talking about parking my trailer and putting up my shade tent and table. But no goodies till after the Wednesday Auction.

i sure hope they enforce it too... i have never gone to Iowa Gas and stayed overnight due to the old schedule. this year, I was excited for the new schedule and I have been working really hard to try and be able to take off Weds-Fri off work. If i get there only to find lots of activity occurred Tuesday and before, ill be really frustrated.
