The Clock is Ticking. Put May 8, 2017, between 9am and 1pm on you calendar so you will not miss it.It's time to start cleaning up the shack and begin parting with that excess connector, cable, radio or test equipment device.
This year we will return to our favorite location in Area 17 at Thompson Park. It's been several years since we have been able to secure this spot. There is plenty of space for junk-in-the trunk displays. Tables in the shelter are always at a premium so make plans to bring one if you have a lot of equipment to sell or trade.See the map below for the location.
