We are very sorry to have to announce that due to the City of Abilene Emergency Order restricting any event of over 250 people, the Big Country Swap Meet has been postponed.
The new date will be announced as soon as it can be determined. We certainly regret the inconvenience of having to reschedule but understand the need to limit the number of attendees from across the state in these uncertain times. Rest assured that we will provide another tremendous swapmeet when we are able to safely enjoy it together. We will still honor all reserved spaces for the new date, however, we will gladly refund any spaces that have previously been paid for if you so desire.
We truly regret that we must postpone the swap meet, but understand the unique times that we are enduring at the current time.
We will see you soon at the Big Country Swap Meet, but until then, stay safe and ‘sanitized’!
Randy Young and all the Big Country Swap Meet Staff
Hey Swap Meet Friends,
Just wanted to give you a reminder that the Big Country Swap Meet will again be held at the Big Country Raceway (Abilene Dragstrip) on March 29-30, 2019. We will allow vendors only to get in on Thursday the 28th to get an early setup. We are already hearing from many new vendors, so it promises to be another great swapmeet.
One new addition will be that we are working with The Tailgate Team from here in Abilene who are planning to have some of their fantastic canopies available for rent. They will have 10×10 and 10×20 units available for rent. Save your trailer space for more stuff and offer your wares in shady comfort!
Also, we have had such great success with the “Car Club Package” (10 spaces for only $200!) that we will continue to offer it. If you can’t use that many spots, gather some friends to share the deal and be close so you can sell each other’s stuff while they shop!
If you want to reserve the same spaces you had last year, you can go online and pay directly or drop us an email.
We are excited to see everyone again at this year’s swapmeet!
( Note from Chrysti: this is a complimentary post since they aren’t TCC members but you never know when or where you’ll find a treasure! Randy Young sent this and his dad is Kenneth Young, former member.)
Mike Johnson sent word that Dan Heina passed. This is a link to his obituary. Mike says Dan was the reason he joined the club and he would miss him.
Thanks Mike for letting us know.
The Concho Valley area club meet at Rosa’s Cafe in San Angelo for New Year’s Day lunch. Those attending were: Raymond and Chrysti Love, with granddaughters Skylar and Kaelyn Taylor, Bobbie Love, Les and Carolyn Turner, Ben and Gene Sargent, Lee and Nancy Bennett, Armando and Margaret Trevino, David and Carol Wyatt, Tyler and Jennifer Johnson with Wyatt and Adelaide.
The news of Goldie Aldridge’s death was shared. She and Kenneth were active members of the Abilene group.
We had a great meal and enjoyed being with friends.
