Help!

swap meets


I'm not sure if this is placed correctly.
Is there any places to search (here on RCG) for swap meets for me to look for airplane stuff?
I live in Nebraska, where I have never seen a swap meet, PLEASE HELP!!!!!

I did a search on past events in Nebraska and found none listed. Try RCUniverse as they have an actual calendar of events that you can search by event type, state, etc....

There's a calendar here on RCG as well, it's new...

You can also look on the AMA calendar, just choose "non-flying" and the state you want...

I'm thinking a forum in the classifieds with swap meet and show dates would be beneficial. The one at the very top of the forum page I forget about all the time.

That's nice... I searched for it three times and finally found it on the bottom of the page. This is something that should be on top of the page not hidden. Better yet make it part of the special events and regular events forums.

LOL! I don't think the OP will get many good deals after spending all that time and fuel going cross-country. He's looking for events near Nebraska .

Hey interplanet, Thanks for the info on http://omahawks.net/events/2012/Auct...ter%202012.pdf. Maybe I can sell some of my many engines (about 20), as long as I can find it.

Swap meets are a wonderful way to spend some time with airplane stuff and people.
Old friends,favorite models, and stuff you just can't live without....

But in the event you don't have a local swap meet,the next best thing is RCG's classifieds.
Just scrolling down the ads in your favorite section,is like wandering the tables at a swap meet,without the crowds.
I hope you find what you're looking for in a swap meet-you can't beat the experience.
