This weekend at the Tri-City swap meet near San Antonio I was told that the Denton swap meet is even bigger -- about twice the size -- and so it's the one to make.
I assume it's generally in August each year, so I need to check back in July to find an exact date?

The next north Texas swap meet is Weatherford March 15-16, 2013 and you can get to the flyer here: http://www.wamsrc.com/7.html . Weatherford and Denton are two of the largest swap meets in north Texas except that Weatherford is Friday-Saturday and Denton is Saturday only.
Denton is in early August and ususally the second Saturday. I will have a thread up for Denton when I get their date.
You can find dates for Texas or other swap meets at the AMA Flying Events Calendar: http://www.modelaircraft.org/events/calendar.aspx . Select "Non Flying" for Type of Event and the state and time period. Another place to look is the AMA District 8 Events Calendar: http://www.ama-dist-8.org/Calendar/index.php

Thanks! The AMA site is good for finding events, but it's not good for finding out how "good" the event is. Weatherford and Denton are about a 3.5 hour drive for me each way, so I'd want to make sure it's well worth it ...
(And based on your description, it sounds like it is, so maybe I'll make it.)

Weatherford is the oldest and largest north Texas swap meet and is held in a large high school assembly room and overflows into the surrounding hallways and outside on the lawn. It's also almost here on this Friday and Saturday March 15-16, 2013. The main thread for it is here in Electric Flight Events: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1836821
Denton is held in the main room of the Denton Civic Center and is very close in the number of total vendor tables. There are pictures from Denton 2012 here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...2&postcount=17
I would say that the three Texas swap meets you shouldn't miss are Georgetown (January), Weatherford (March), and Denton (August). These always have a large attendance and plenty of stuff to buy and sell. I haven't missed one of these since I moved to the Metroplex in 2003.
I go to several of the smaller swap meets and have found many good deals at them. I will pass up the smaller events if they are more than a couple of hours drive or have earned a reputation for low attendance. One other totally avoidable attendance killer is having their event on the same day as one of the major well established events.
I hope you and everyone going to Weatherford has a great time.
