I guess I joined this forum in the nick of time. I just started getting into this stuff, and I live down the street from this meet!
I can't wait to see what you all have up for grabs.

Hi WAZZ.
Yes we knew of the Hamfest conflctt. Also knew of its mixed feedback in its new Xenia location.

We did the Memorial Day weekend last year. From feed back we decided not to this year. Have to work with church property availability what with services, weddings etc.. And Kutztown meet was last weekend, with a couple key club members and others attending. And avoid conflict with the Dayton and Cincinnati radio club meets in June.
“It’s always something"

Our second tailgate meet will tentatively be early September.

-Dave

No alternate date.
We say Rain or Shine because of the the large "L" shaped shelter adjacent to the large parking lot.
This shelter was designed to hold outdoor church services. The bench backs convert to tables. Has a number of electrical outlets.
And some lighting. There are ceiling fans for comfort in hot weather.
Number of folks set up in the shelter even in nice weather - provides shade and with open sides decent air movement.
Others set up in the parking lot as there is plenty of room for a seller to spread out - with your own tables or on the ground.
There is a small playground for kids too. Large field as well - is a country setting.
All this a mere 3 miles from the Columbus outerbelt.
This property works well for our radio club tailgate meet. Three years at this location.

I agree with Dave that it is a good location. The only tricky part is that, in the past, some GPS devices did not show the location correctly.
So always follow Dave's instructions.... ;-)
The shelter works even if it is raining. It is at the end of the parking lot, so easy to just back up the car and unload.

I plan to attend with a car load of stuff for my "Going Out of Business Sale". (yup, Crosley Guy is moving on... )
Low prices in order to move a bunch of parts and gear.
Several items just plain free.

Planning on being there with a lot of test gear, radio and tube testers, good ones aren't cheap though !
Also clearing out shelf space, heavy rain may scare me away though
