Swap Meet
Saturday Dec. 05, 2009—Hico, TX—Buzzard Busters 7th Annual Swap Meet

The following information is from the AMA Non Flying Events Calendar:

05 12/05/09 - Hico, TX (E) Buzzard Busters 7th Annual Swap Meet.
Site: Hico Jr High School.
For Info: Charles Krempin PH:254-784-3215.
Free tables, $5 admission, spouse and children free, come buy, sell and visit. Sponsor: BUZZARD BUSTERS.

There is no time listed but all of these events usually get going by 8am and end around 1pm. The early birds are there by 7 and get the best worms.

SPEED TRAP WARNING-There is a sudden speed limit change just as you enter Hico. Be sure to slow down as you come into town so you don’t get a ticket.

I have not been able to track down the correct street address for the Hico High School where the swap meet is because all searches give you an address on Kirk St., which is not the right place.

Through Goggle Maps, I have found an address that works and it is 586 9th Street, Hico, TX 76547 and here is a link to that map:

http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=...ed=0CAoQ8gEwAA

It is the pink building to the right of the oval running track. You can click on the “Get Directions” button to get driving directions from your location.

See you there.

How does this meet compare with the Austin meet? Hico is about 4 hours from Houston, up Highway 6 past Waco

Hi Stuart,

Hico's swap meet is a little smaller than the Austin meet, probably having to do with it being a little out in the sticks. It is a nice hour drive for me.

How was the swap meet in Houston a little while ago?

The one at Scobee field was good even though I got there a bit late. It was a parking lot / tailgate meet so it got to be a little tight. They're having another one tomorrow morning if the rain clears out by then. We've got a tropical low moving slowly across the Gulf that could mess things up.

Hope this one won't be abused as a balloon target tow aircraft like it's brother at TINY '08.

Not to worry, it's only a flesh wound.
