Swap Meet
Northwest Houston RC SWAPMEET

Swap meet was a great success. We sold out of tables but added more to handle the extra people. Thanks to all that attended. We'll definitely have to do this again next year!

Hi everyone,

Northwest Houston ( Texas) RC club will be holding it's 4th Annual Swap Meet Saturday, March 23, 2013 9-3 in a new indoor location.

We'll have 35+ tables setup for the meet, concessions and an auction between noon and 1pm. Concessions provided so please come hungry!

Details:
Location: Montgomery County Community Development Center
31355 Friendship Drive
Magnolia, Texas 77355

Date: Saturday, March 23, 2013
Time: 9am to 3pm

Admission: $5.00 per person, 12 and under FREE
Tables: $5.00 each

Sorry, no pre-registration at this time. tables will be available at the door the day of the meet.

Any questions, please PM me

-Stuart

Hope you had fun and good weather. At 6 this morning, we got dime sized hail 3" deep south of Fort Worth.

Hi Richard,
The meet went very well. We sold all of our tables and added a couple to handle the extra sellers. I had 2 tables of kits, engines, etc and sold almost all of it by 11 am. We pulled the auction in by an hour and started at 12 instead of 1. Not every auction item sold but we did have a few items that sold for over their minimum selling price. We had a bit of fun with one item that wasn't selling. A couple of guys donated some of their items to help it sell - reminded me of those TV adds that say " but wait.... there's more..... buy it now and we'll include..... " The seller got well over his minimum bid and he made a nice donation to the club.

We're planning to do this again next year but pull the date in to late January / February . THere are a lot of tailgate swap meets and fly-ins going on around Houston during March.

By the way, we found out too that AMA does not protect non-flying events like they do flying events. Another local club had their swap meet the same weekend . It's unfortunate that there was a conflict.
