So... time's flying by and we're only 6 months away from the October 2012 Get Together!


I've gotten info from Barber, and first off want to ask if anyone is interested in having a swap meet booth again this year.  We had a spot last year that was utilized, and I'm happy to sponsor another one this coming year if people are interested.


So PM me / email me tim@dotheton.com if you're keen on throwing some parts on the ground and seeing what sells.  With participation comes a commitment to spend some time at the booth helping sell everyone's stuff.  It will be up to the respective participants to sort out details on who's spending what time at the spot etc, how to price items, collect and divvy up money etc.


Let me know - need to respond to Barber in the next couple of weeks.

Well it isn't on the Canuck thanksgiving this year.  So I don't get a free day off but I could more likely get there as I won't miss family time. Hmmm I could easily do the crazy drive there in a day and a half again and back in a day and a half and only need to take Friday and Monday off.  But a couple more days and I could ride....... if I start whining about it now I may get to go.

I'm going to try and make it Thursday night this time. 1.5 days was not enough.

I brought some stuff last time but never took it to the booth. I don't know how effective it was last year since I didn't work it. I did hear that one of the problems was that it was hard for the people manning the booth to sell some stuff since they didn't know how low they could go. So I would suggest if you bring stuff to leave a list of min prices if you have one.

I would be willing to man it a half day but don't really NEED to sell anything.

I had to guess at the dates since I have to schedule my vacation days in Nov... I chose wisely :D
I also already have a room booked for Saturday.

I don't know if I'll have anything to sell, but I'll help out at the booth if needed ;)

Now what was that about BBQ??
