Swap Meet
Saturday Dec. 3, 2011--Hico, TX--Buzzard Buster RC Club 9th Annual Swap Meet

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

DEC 3, 2011--Hico, TX (C) Buzzard Buster RC Club 9th Annual Swap Meet
Site: Hico Junior High School Cafeteria, 586 9th Street, Hico, TX 76547.
Event starts at 8 am, $5 admission and tables are free.
Charles Krempin CD PH: 254-784-3215 Email: charleskrempin@gmail.com

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.

It is difficult to find the correct street address for the Hico Junior High School where the swap meet is held.
Through Google 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 or east of the oval running track. I have printed "Enter Here" on the satellite photo of the site. On the Google Map page, you can click on the “Get Directions” button to get driving directions from your location.

See you there.

Tomorrow!

It will be windy, raining, and cold outside, so dress appropriately and drive carefully.

A great day to be inside at a swap meet.

See you there.

Stuart,

It was pretty good. All of the tables were full of stuff and most of my swap meet friends were there. I found a HET F-20 Tigershark ARF and a couple of nice electric sailplanes. It was rainy and windy outside and a perfect day to be warm and dry inside and browsing airplane stuff. It's a small swap meet but always a good one.

The next Texas event will be the GAMA Swapmeet in Georgetown coming up on January 20-21, 2012 and you can see their webpage here: http://www.gamarc.org/swapmeet/index.php

I'll be starting a thread for their event soon.

Thanks for the swap meet report Richard. I hope to get to the GAMA meet in January. Only issue might be if the job sends me to the Czech Republic

I've heard they have some really neat hobby shops there. You might do a little research and see if you can make it to Free Air or Alfa.

Have fun.
