Big Country Swap Meet 2018

Just wanted to give you an update on the Big Country Swap Meet in Abilene for 2018. I sure hope lots of your guys can make it again this year. We are growing well each year and have made some changes that will make it even better this year!

The dates are March 30-31 (Fri and Sat), and we are letting vendors only in at noon on Thursday to set up. If you haven’t “liked” the Big Country Swap Meet Facebook page, that is where we post updates and answer any questions, etc. Of course, our webpage (www.bigcountryswapmeet.com) has ALL the info as well as downloadable fliers, maps, etc.

We would love to be added to your “events” calendar and appreciate you adding it in the past. You are our prime voice to the Scooter folks!

Hope your year is starting out fantastic! Thanks again,

Randy

Happy New Year!

As this years ends, I am updating the membership list. We have 194 members as of today. The membership was at 249 before I removed those who didn’t renew.
The Calendar of Events has been updated also. It is early in the year but I like to get my calendar marked for Cushman rides early.  We don’t want to miss any chance to visit, ride,  and eat with our friends.  The Calendar is a work in progress and can be edited to include more rides or to correct information.
                                                         HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Working On the History

So much more has appeared since the State Meet. I would still appreciate the 1994 CCOA magazine with the National and 12th Annual Texas State meet information. Roy Stanley and Tommy Goode have provided the 22nd State Meet information.

I would appreciate your naming the people in this magazine cover. Either email me at texascushmaneditor@gmail.com or reply in a comment on this post.

Classified Ads Problems

Nicholas Gans, Raymond Love, and Jack Miller have notified me that a Richard Garcia has been in contact with them in regards to their ads. This is a scam.

I have removed the email addresses from the Classified Ads. The phone numbers will be left.

The complete ads with email addresses will continue to be printed in the publications.  Send your write up to texascushmaneditor address so that Jennifer Johnson, TCC Editor, and I can use them to inform the membership of your ad.

Thank you, Chrysti
