Sounds like it could be a really great show to attend.

07Apr 2013 swapmeet

We were within 10% of the stadiums "full capacity" at last April's 'meet. If we follow history and 2013 is bigger than 2012, we may well reach/exceed the stadium capacity for both vendor spots and public parking, necessitating turning away latecomers. If someone would like to attend, they would be well advised to pre-register and arrive early.

Vendor and public parking is free. Tow vehicles may use public parking.

People will be available to provide 'hauling' service if someone needs to take heavy/bulky purchases to their truck. Buyers may Not bring their trucks into the vendors area to load such items. Any hauling fees are between the buyer and the hauler.

FYI; I always arrive at 5AM. Last year there were vendors lined up for about 1/4 mile at 5AM, awaiting the start of setup.
