1st - Quick correction. The date should read Sat Jan 18
2nd - I will try to attend, but unsure if I will be able.
If I can, I'll be happy to have someone come with me

Mark

Forgot to change the title date.  Adjustment made.  Thanks.

We will check a day or two before.  "No" is always an answer.  We will not be taking attendance. :D

  Hi Frank,
  I will be attending, but will be taking my own car as I several other destinations after the swap meet. Will be up for lunch though. I can also assist with bringing back larger items if required.

What time do ya'll usually aim to be there?

How do swap meets work?  Can I just "swap" money with people for fun things that will likely just sit in my garage?

Chris,  you work out your dollar issues with your frenemies.   ;)

Re: your questions "What time do ya'll usually aim to be there? How do swap meets work?"

Guidelines to swap meets:
- be there before the opening  All the real deals are snapped up in the first pass.
- do a quick pass over all the tables to find the real deals.  Then do a second sweep of there is stuff you like but the price was too high. Try to reduce them.
- when buying an electric motor or ESC, smell them and avoid ones with a burnt smell.  Check the spin (bearing check).
- if you have time to stay longer, a lot of people will slash prices in the last half hour because they don't want to take it home.
- bring lots of money.
- stay ahead of Cadez before he buys everything you like.

Veterans like Cadez and Glenn can add their tricks ....if they want to reveal them. ;) ;)

Unless the snow is really bad I will be going as well.
FYI - There is a Tim Horton's inside an Esso station just north of 401 on Yonge (4696 Yonge)
I'll be there at about 7:30
I'm also happy to give anyone a ride, but can't guarantee how long I will be staying
My Cell is 416-528-4870
