Thanks, Mike.  The show has been going for so long that it operates like a well-oiled machine.  We are glad that people enjoy it, as much as we do. It is not just a modelling event but also a social event.. What more can we hope for? 


And Paul, thanks for posting the pictures!

Thanks for the kind words, guys.  I had a great time too, and saw a LOT of friends yesterday.


There is not really a club running the show, but a handful of guys who form a committee that make all of the arrangements & decisions regarding themes, advertising, etc.  The rest of us are basically "day help" who show up to set up the room, work the ticket booth and registration table, sell raffle tickets, etc.


The vendor area is set up depending on the number of tables that are pre-sold, with a few extra tables put in there if a seller shows up on the morning of the show and wants more space or wants to register at  last minute.  As you saw yesterday, a vendor bought two tables and for some reason did not show up. The Staff really have little control over the swap meet-they are reacting to the demand for tables-that is why the size and layout varies.

A little more than 48 hours until the doors open! As usual, I will be escorting vendors to their tables during set up. I'm looking forward to seeing Ira and his lovely wife Dolores.

Who all else is going?

I store parts in them  I also find it convenient to take a couple of empty boxes with me to model shows in case I buy loose parts, decals  or built kits.

The yellow part is a styllized C and the blue is a funky M for "Car Model"
