This is not a Cushman event but swapping parts are in your genes!
randy young <BigCountrySwapMeet@outlook.com>7 January 2021 at 15:22Swap Meet Folks,
Wow what a year it has been! 2021 should begin to get us back to the normal things like SWAP MEETS! Last year we postponed our 6th annual Big Country Swap Meet until July, but it was a great meet and went off without a hitch! We will be back on our regular “Starts the last Friday in March” schedule in 2021 for the 7th annual meet, barring any unforeseen regulations. We are expecting an extraordinary meet this year starting March 26-27.
Be sure to mark March 26-27 on your calendar. Vendors only can get in to set up after lunch on Thursday the 25th to avoid the rush on Friday morning.
Remember that we will again have the popular “Car Club Package” available- 10 spaces together for only $200! This lets you get together with your club (or even just a group of friends) to swap and sell, letting some of your group sell all your stuff while others get to shop for deals. If you have not already contacted us to renew or grab a new set of spaces, do so quickly to get the best selection of locations.
I have included copies of our 2021 flier if you would like to print a couple for your area. I also included a registration form. These and all of the other forms are available on our website at www.bigcountryswapmeet.com . We also offer updates and news on our Facebook page, Big Country Swapmeet . you must go to FB and “like” the page to receive the updates.
Again, we are working hard to make this a great swapmeet, and your attendance and help in getting the word out is invaluable! See you at the Big Country Swap Meet on March 26-27, 2021!

Bill and Belinda Beck TCC # 1900, joined with a goal to become active members in 2011. Bill and Belinda were at every event they could work into their schedule.
