Weather forecast of 78 degrees and sunny! We'll be outdoors and having a great time! Should be a great meet.

It was a great meet, more sellers than expected and a great donation auction.

Just to follow up on Art's report:
We had 34 seller tables. There was all sorts of interesting stuff there. One that really caught my eye was what looked like a new old stock Weathers turntable from the early '60s. It had the 2 motor drive system and wood tonearm. It was in perfect shape with the box.
Someone picked it up for about $160. A very rare find.
My take was:
A triple voltage power supply with dual meters by Elenco for $15
A Sony HP610 compact system with Dual TT for $20
2 large oval Grundig speakers-$1
A Weller WTCPT temp controlled soldering station like new-$25
A box of transformer type wall warts (about 20)-$1
Plus, I picked up some tubes I needed from our tube vendor (eye tubes, EL 84's, etc) and saved a bundle compared with AES or the other online sellers.
There were 3 fully restored Grunow console chassis (12 tube) at our donation auction, that were each picked up by attendees for next to nothing.

Our "Main Event": Radiofest 2016, will feature a swap meet (7/30-7/31) that we estimate will be about 4 times the size of this meet. So make sure to put us on your calendar!
