Stuart,

Glad you can make it. I need to start digging through my stuff to cull the stuff I'm never going to build and make room for the neat stuff I know I'll find.

See you Friday,

Richard

I've just started to gather up my stuff for this weekend. Looks like I've got a bunch of ARF kits and several planes that need to make the trip. See you there!

Tables at Georgetown are first come first served and they do not take reservations. It is best to get there on Friday or Saturday as early as you can make it.

Ohio AV8ter,

I'll be there. If you need space to sell your slick, there is a large airplane room you can place your plane.

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/showt...t=garden+ridge
