Is anyone else going to this? I am going Friday morning, which will be my first time ever attending this meet.

In fact they do...If you're a seller. Then you can get permits to park in their own lot adjacent to the swap lot on the North end.

We got there around 8:30 and parked in a lot across the street by the car dealership. The parking lot was never close to being filled up even during the peak of the day. It was only a 5 minute walk to the area from where we parked.

Overall there was a pretty good selection of test equipment, cheap tubes/parts, boat anchors, and even a selection of antique radios. The flea market was very active well into the afternoon until the rain began to move in around 3. Prices were reasonable. I picked up some books, several NSO tubes, and a Emerson radio with a Ingraham cabinet. It took me several hours just to make one pass through the flea market.

Gary from Play Things of Past was there with a large selection of books, parts, and radio memorabilia. It was nice to finally meet him face to face after ordering parts from him online for over a decade.
