Went to show early Friday morning during set-up period. Contrairy to what has been mentioned elsewhere, there were a couple of missing vendors, booths which were just plain blank, a no show.

Iff'n you are expecting to get one of the "Show Specials" from a vendor. Forget it. They are all gone. The vendors mentioned in general they underestimated the crowds. Brought "Usual quantity of usual items" and those were pretty well gone by about 3-4PM on Friday. I know in talking to two vendors, they had some kid rush back to businees, and was to round up additional merchandise to meet new demand. If you are into electrics, or foam (whatever) there are numerous vendors present. The Hobico booth is substantially smaller than last year, but just as busy.

The swap shop will be open on Saturday (so they say) only from 10 to 4PM. Closed Sunday.

Is expected to rain again on Saturday but sunny for Sunday.

I got to the show at around 12:30 and it was packed. We had to park across the street (more walking) I couldn't believe how many people were there. The show did have a few less vendors but it was far from empty.
I had talked to one of the swap shop guy's who had a very large selection of kit's (25-30), some proctor and the like and he told me they were all sold. I was ready to part with $300.00 but I left empty handed.[&o]
All I can say is the hobby is headed straight to electric if the majority of vendors have it their way. If your into battery powered stuff you'll be in heaven.
If you don't have to far to drive it well worth a couple hours of your Sat. or Sun. time. $6.00 parking, $13.00 a ticket, $11.00 with your AMA card.
