Another Georgetown is done.

The tables sold out quickly and the hall was full of airplanes and airplane people. I came home with several very nice kits and a couple of ARFs.

The next central Texas swap meet is February 17-18, 2012 in Garden Ridge, Texas, just north of San Antonio. The thread for it is here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1563900
