BIG RC Swap Meet, Sacramento, Ca. 9-28-02

This is a Semi-Annual event at RC Country in Sacramento Ca. this Saturday the 28th of Sept.

It is located at 6011 Folsom Blvd, just off HWY 50, take either 65th or 59th offramps.

Begins at 7 AM, but if not there by 6 you will park way down the street.

The meet is open to all for free (buy or sell) and the store will open at 8 AM and will close at 5.

The swap meet is not limited to EP, but plenty of EP is always on hand.

RC Country has just expanded to 14000 sq ft for all your RC and hobby needs. If you have not been to RC Country, do yourself a favor and check it out. They have a large inventory for EP.

It is worth the drive even from several hours away!!!!!!

How'd you do at the swap meet Brian? I only brought one item home with me out of the carload that I took up. So a pretty good day I will say.

$4k and 3/4 of my 6x12 was empty (loading back up was a breeze!). It was a great day. Just got up from an 7 hour nap

Now I have to get ready for the next one!

Did you see me there??

Sorry, I missed you! I did notice a trailer parked over by the porta potties? It was marked as being for sale too. Yours?

I had a few items and was out front by the main doors for a couple hours, close to the free popcorn.

I wonder how many RCGers I walked by without realizing I "knew" them?

Seriously, I though about getting a T-shirt that said "punkindrublik"

I was on the corner taking up two spots. I had the Fokker DR-1, Corsair (turbine) and L-4 sitting right at the entrance to the parking lot. (My trailer was across the street). Man, I took a LOT of stuff

I pulled up in the no-parking area on that side street right next to my spot just to check things out when I got there. When I went to start my car, the starter died

So how lucky is it that it died RIGHT in front of a mechanic and I was making some extra money to pay for it? It was ready for me by noon.
Disaster averted!!


And thanks again to all the guys who helped a brutha out (especially Mike for towing my trailer for me while mine sat dead!)

Oh yeah, I walked by you SEVERAL times. Saw the Corsair sitting there. Was your truck the one with the set of wheels and tires in the bed for sale?

Sorry we didn't get to chat.

Yeah, me too. I would have liked to meet several people behind the usernames

No, it was a white Jeep Cherokee. It was sitting in the "no-parking" til about 10 am.

What time did you get there? I was there at 11PM and got swarmed with people saying "what ya got?? Can I help you unload?". It was crazy. The same 6 guys did that to every car/truck/trailer that pulled in!

I was unloaded and selling stuff by 12:30 am

Yeah, we talked about those "folks". I think they get there early and try to score stuff on the cheap, then hang around the swap meet to try and resell at a profit later? Kind of a tough way to make a buck IMO.

We landed around 6 AM and left by 10:30-11:00. We are a bunch of swap meet lightweights. hahhah But trust me, I needed my beauty sleep.

I was told to look for the stuff on eBay today too

I needed my beauty sleep too, but didn't get any. The last time I did the RCC swap was about 12 years ago. I got there at 11PM and slept in my car til I heard the noise of people showing up about 5 am. I was totally shocked to find 60 people there when I showed up and I had NO CHOICE but to start selling around midnight. So no sleep for me. Dropped dead for about 10 hours when I got home (I'm no prettier for it though).
