Report for March. 29 & 30, 2005
Springfield, Ma.

Stein collectors began to arrive in the late afternoon on Friday to help Ron Fox set up his auction. The auction started at 6:00 PM and more than a three dozen attendees were ready to bid on steins. The auction continued throughout the evening.

The next morning our room opened at 8:00 AM for a tasty continental breakfast. The rest of the 25 attendees arrived to share coffee and pastries before the program started.

Promptly at 9:00 AM each collector introduced themselves before our first discussion leader began.

Intermingled throughout the talks were the show and tell presentations required for admittance to stein college. Here are some highlights of those individuals and the events for the weekend:
