Sanfilippo Sale of the Century???
By Jack M. Conway

Hi Group,

Did anyone out there attend the Jasper Sanfilippo Sale of the Century held on September 1, 1996 in Barrington Hills, Illinois, USA? The reason that I ask is that the day that I received the MBSI May/June News Bulletin that carried the ad for the sale I sent a request for information and bid forms. About three weeks later I realized that I had received nothing. I then called the number in the ad and got an answering machine and again requested information and bid forms. A week or so later I had still recieved nothing. At this point I sent a fax asking for information and bid forms to the fax number listed in the ad. About three days before the sale I still had recieved nothing so I called again. I believe that I spoke to Wolfgang H. Schweppe who was helping to organize the sale. He said that they were working hard to get things ready for the sale and that day they were moving the locomotive out of the carousel building to make room for the instruments. He said that he was having materials printed that day and would fax me a set. Today I have still recieved nothing.

Does anyone know if the sale was actually held? Did anyone recieve any material about the sale or bid forms? If anyone recieved materials would they be wiling to share them with me? Did anyone attend the sale? Did anyone buy anything?
