I will need a headcount of vehicles that will be displaying at this years MTA Swap Meet, so I can provide rear view mirror hanging passes. This pass is only for display vehicle and driver and does not include passenger, also if displaying Saturday or Sunday or both.
Please provide info ASAP as I will need time to be sure to get them to everyone, there will not be any exceptions at the gate so be sure to let me know.

THERE WILL BE PARKING AREA FOR TRAILERS, in another area of fairgrounds..

Also there will be a mobile blood donation set-up for the weekend and anyone donating blood will get in for free.... And Leslie from Cell Phones for Soldiers will be there, so if you have any old cell phones to give her it will help our troops as she gets phone cards for the phones and sends them to deployed troops....

Don't forget that we will also have a table for Wheelers for the wounded as well. So we need current wftw volunteers to man the table for us too. Collecting donations, selling raffle tix and hopefully this years t-shirts will be ready to sell! We have more items to raffle off that would be of interest for everyone! Bring your cash ;)

jeepinjp
04-12-2011, 12:24 PM
Yeah, what time you want us to arrive on Saturday? and again on Sunday?


The hours are Sat. 0800 till 1800 and Sun. 0800 till 1500...
They would appreciate all exhibitors to be there before 0800 if at all possible. check beack a few posts for the link to the map I posted and where you see the arrows going around to the right of the pond exhibitors will take the road that goes under the pond, you will be directed to where you need to go...we will most likely be park tow rigs and trailers in the area marked RV Parking directly across from where we will be displaying.remember those passes I handed out will not get you in if you are not exhibiting a vehicle....All others not displaying must go the other entrance by following the arrows..we could use more people coming on Saturday...Dave I think you said pick a day ...Saturday it is...Bill aka Howcycling did not specify a day again Saturday we need more vehicles..those that were not in PA Sunday or didnt get a pass.. you can pm me your cell # and i will sent you my cell # to call when you get there..

I dont know why we don`t have more rigs ..........this is a great show there is definitely something for everyone more and kids will love it.. Also on Saturday there will be a special surprise if the weather cooperates.

There are over 70 vendors there and they have everything and anything you may need....nice knives, duffle bags of all types,ammo cans,webbing,military surplus, older jeep parts etc. etc... come out and enjoy with or without your rig...Also bring your old cell phones and we can donate to Cell Phones for Soldiers...

Also if wanted the club can set-up a table and hand out brochures etc..WFTW will be doing same..

It doesn`t get any easier....if you want to camp you can... If you want to drop off rig earlier MTA will have people there from Wensday till Monday. So you can leave it stay with it whatever floats your boat....

Started drizzling by noon, pouring by 2ish. The canopy frames are still set up and hopefully will stay up with the wind. Actual pop up and canopy are down and under JP's rig, so is table. May want to bring a second table. Tom and Dan are staying there overnight (what happens at sussex etc etc) It was quite chilly today so definately wear layers and wet weather shoes. Good luck tomorrow.

Wheelers for the wounded made a really great contact today and may be part of an event in June at Monmouth Raceway. We will of course keep you posted though. As for the day today, I am windburndt and tired but I bought a fabulously cute jacket so its a winning day as far as I am concerned!

OH, NO! LMAO! Poor fellas!

To echo Paul, a good time was had by all. A lot of great teamwork went into setting up a great display, included some stacked Jeeps and two very organized tables. Thanks to all who showed up and pitched in, especially since we all had to spend a great deal of time making sure the tables and EZ Ups didn't fly away! Whether you're military or not, this is always a really great event to attend.

He will be popular in school tomorrow. You were looking a little toasty up-top yourself.
BTW, how did you arrange for Kenny from South Park to join us today?

Fortunately, nobody else mistook Melissa for Kenny, so she was saved from getting killed in some gruesome yet hilarious manner.

And on the topic of fashion, Tom had his own wardrobe malfunction during setup this morning.

Yet another of the 1,000 uses for duct tape: clothing repair.

Fortunately, no major repairs to clothing or vehicles were called for due to the creation of this classic Jeep pose:

The highlight of the day, aside from blue sky, sunshine and a brisk wind, was the poorly-kept secret about the arrival of a NJ Civil Air Patrol Blackhawk helicopter for a fly-by and sit-in tours for most of the day:

The show was a good time Saturday even though mostly wet and Sunday with the brisk wind. My face has good wind burn today. Thanks to everyone that made time on Saturday and Sunday.

And on the topic of fashion, Tom had his own wardrobe malfunction during setup this morning.

Don't see it? Look closer:

I'll take "Close Up Pictures I Never Needed To See" for $400, Alex.

Tom now has the most amazing bikini wax to boot. From what I am guessing of course...

As everyone has said a good time was had by all, after getting through the rain of Sat. well Sundays wind was ok.... Unfortunetly Bruce and I wound up working with the MTA vehicle rides the second half of the day...Thanks to all who came and helped out. I am going to investigate a different spot for next year so we get more traffic.
Paul & Melissa hope the boys faces are ok, I know my follically challenged area is a bit burned...

PS someone left a campchair in my jeep it is in a blue bag/pouch
