    The tables were booked out in twelve days, another testament to the viability of the show and Iím sure the envy of every show promoter.

    Having attended many Adelaide Shows I feel a tinge of sadness I was not able to attend Peterís last show. I think Peter and Maxine should be very proud of what they have achieved and we should all congratulate them. I hope the KAA can move forward with the same success.
    I agree totally. The shows that exist now are standing on the foundations laid by Melbourne and Adelaide.

    That being said, with Peter B retiring from running the show, it is time to move to a bigger venue and engage a new audience, so roll on KAA and give it what you've got.

    On a personal note, when I realised that Peter Del wasn't turning up to the show I thought, you beauty, I'll be able to win a prize for the best something or other now. Sadly,......

    Peter and Maxine Bald have laid a great foundation for the KAA to start from.
    Adelaide 2020 will be an exciting new show run by exciting new people. Not saying the Adelaide Show was dull, far from it. Peter and Maxine have left the show in the best possible position for the KAA to take up. No one books out a show in 12 days and turns away another 15 tables if it's dull.

    Well done Maxine and Peter for 27 years of the fundamentals of knife shows in Australia.

    Research is already underway for Adelaide 2020.
    It's going to be awesome!
