I have read about most of the events that are taking place, but someone mentioned that there are radio contests without any details about what they are. Does anyone know?

Last year's winter meet was the first I was ever able to attend. I hope to make it again this year.

Definitely plan to attend. It's a double header weekend for me, radio show on Saturday, then Mopar swap meet at Gibraltar on Sunday.

Gee, I wish I still had my 1973 Plymouth Scamp.

My ' 73 was a Charger. I'm guessing I won't be able to recognize you at the expo from your picture - ha ha.

no..... I lost all my hair. :lol:

That Scamp had a 318 in it and would MOOOVE! Sadly, I had bias ply tires on it which with the MOPAR suspension would wildly jump from side to side in the truck ruts of I-75.
not the safest car to hit the highway on.

I might have assembled something on that engine. I worked at Mound Road Engine making 318's and 340's from 1972 to 1980.

A very strong report from the host/manager of the Winter Vintage Electronics Expo, looks like it might be a sell out on tables at this show. Its currently set for 112 tables but we have room for maybe 6 to 8 more, we'll see.

Current stats: 65 sellers, 105 tables, and 3 booths. I don't recall having this many tables tables reserved in a long time. I see a lot of new names in the list. <<<<<<

Currently the seminar on Record Player repair (1pm by past MARC President John Reinicke) is set on the floor of the Gym room but we have access to the stage, and may be able to bump it up there and create more seller tables spaces.

This is the largest winter show for vintage electronics in the Midwest. Last year 520 came thru the door, we are expecting to top 600 this year.

See the event site for more info http://www.thevee.org
I have said in the past that "seller tables can be bought at the door" but I cant say that now. Looks like you MUST reserve to be guaranteed a space. Sorry if I said that to anyone this year... I wont say it anymore.

Hope to see you all there and be sure to say HI at my space. I am along the south wall of the gym room. Lots of signs on the wall, you'll know its me. Lots of supplies : Capacitors, knobs, AC cords, chem sprays, etc, etc.
