Ontario Swap Meets

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I read the latest swap meet announcment and agreed with Gary's summation. I just don't want to take over the thread on the date and times of the swap but I did want to highlight the point.

What would it take to get together, even with a phone call, to straighten this out for next time between Whitby and Oakville? It gets talked about every year. You are dividing not only your vendors but also your attendees so it has to hurt both events financially and by reputation.

I'd personally rather go to more swap meets than less (swap meets are a blast). I know a bunch of folks from RCC where we get a chance to see each other at these events across Ontario.

Hopefully this can be worked out next time around.

Re: Ontario Swap Meets

I agree Bob.

The aurora swap meet is the following week.

This has been the typical time we have done this annual event, but regardless, we always check the MAAC calendar and see what the other clubs are doing before we book ours so that we dont have a conflict.

Last year we did have a conflict with KMAC but we were fortunate enough to meet with them and resolve the conflict for the same reason you mention- the splitting of vendors and attendees.

Good luck getting your dates sorted out. Co-operation is the key and I applaud your making an effort to bring the 2 parties together.

Re: Ontario Swap Meets

Yeah Bob the Oakville Swap Meet use to be in Feb. I don't know why they moved it. The venue is a Union Hall which is empty every Sunday so why pick same date as Whitby. WTF? See you in Whitby Bobo!

Re: Ontario Swap Meets

Yes, it used to be in february, however, since Erik who runs the swap meet cannot hold it in february as he is away south, hence March, he has been asking, but no one has come forward to take the responsibility to run it. I have told him for the last couple of years about the clash, but nothing seems to be done.
The meetings are usually first monday each month and for swap its changed to sunday, so, I am not sure if another sunday can be booked or not.
