The famed Birthday Bash will be Thurs, Feb. 1 and the meteorite auction
will be Sat, Feb. 3.
In addition, the first weekend does not have all dealers there and set
up, while the last weekend has some already packed or packing to leave.
Therefore, I have always found the second weekend by far the more
desirable. (A survey taken a few weeks ago yielded responses
overwhelmingly aimed at the weekend of Feb. 2,3 & 4 - though you would
need to arrive by Feb.1 to make the Birthday Bash).
Best wishes, Michael
