Default PERRY GEORGIA SWAP MEET!!

This year the largest swap meet in the world (The Southeastern Model Show 2009) will be on March 6th and 7th 2009 . Could you guys please post where you will be coming from state wide and close to any large city's, because if there are any good ads here on rcu that people don't want to ship or may be to big of a hassle ect. Maybe if where not to far we could bring the stuff to the swap meet for them if we have room, i missed a really good deal on some rc items giant planes and stuff that the guy could not ship and it was too far for me or him to drive, but if someone is close to the seller just maybe we could arrange something else and make the deal at perry swap meet, thanks

Well, we're less than a month away now. I'm looking forward to seeing all the "STUFF". selling a little, buying a little. We've got 10 tables in the "Miller-Murphy" building and a trailer full of planes and fixins to go on them. Personally, I'm bringing an FVK "Silent Dream" sailplane, a used and abused fixer-upper Decathlon airframe, another motor-glider which looks like a Fornier RF-4, a brand spankin new clipped wing monocoupe which is rtf minus the receiver ,and alot of odds and ends. And, for the third year we will have a restored plane that we sell at a great price so we can pay for our rooms and grab a bite of dinner. Last year it was a GP 1/3 scale Pitts, this year it's a 1/4 scale GP "Patty Wagstaff". Don't know what I'll be lookin for but I am sure it will be fun lookin and hagglin! See you guys there!

You have heard correctly.

There are, of course, many tables of worn out junk that is priced as though it is new. But you can find excellent deals from many of the vendors and unreal prices on NIB or lightly used items from individuals who just don't want them anymore.

As an example: last year I saw a guy buy a brand new in the box OS .91 Surpass II PUMP for $200. The seller had purchased several engines at once as an investment but I think he was getting out of the hobby. I had purchased an OS .70 Surpass NIB earlier the day before from the same seller for $170.

This will be my first year at Perry, and we're RV camping there apparently. How far is it from the campsites to the actual show? Will we want a car with us (and to haul all the treasures too ) or is it an easy walk? I'll have young kids with me that may end up coming to the show some too.

Looking forward to it...

The RV hookups are just outside the first building, INSIDE the gates. Its all paved and right next to the building. Only problem is, if you are RV'ing, the gates close at 10pm I believe and your locked in till morning. No one gets in or out. Other than that, its probably not a bad thing. Norm Deputy should be able to answer your questions about the RV situation. His contact info is on the flyer for the swap meet.

We already have a spot reserved, I just hadn't found a map of the site. Sounds like it's plenty close, though. Thanks!

I'm lucky enough to be traveling through the area on Friday and am planning on heading over to the meet. I'll be getting in right around the time the doors open on Friday.

Are most of the booths up by then? Will I miss much if I'm only there for the early part of the show?

Hoping to find some good deals on a few kits or ARF's. Need some building supplies too.

It will be full Friday afternoon. Come by tables C21-23 in McGill and say hello. Lots of good deal can be found early.
