Did Steve run it last year? The turnout was terribly small.

Steve took this over from Mike Moody and has not promoted it at all.
Really sad to see.
I have asked Steve to update the event info.
Lots of great memories from this venue before it moved to Hershey.
Will try and keep all updated.

Peter, I never missed this event in the 80s. One of my favorite weekends in the 356 world. We would caravan down from Rochester, NY. in our 356s. ...................Jim.

I'm hoping the event can rebound, it did a few years ago when participation had dwindled. Here are some pics from really good years, full parking lot with overflow on the grass!

You cannot run an event by word of mouth. No advertising may lead to no buyers. Depending on a few people to promote the swap meet leads to small turn-out. I have been going to this meet since it started in the 70's.
