NORMAN FALL SWAP MEET
it came and went, and we already miss it....
Above: Don stands at our booth the day before the meet....setting up is just as much fun as the meet itself. Below: Day one, Thursday mid morning....we are open and ready for business!
Above: LaVonda's now world famous "Peanutbutter-less Peanut Butter Cookies" we devoured them like a pack of wolves.
Below: Roy really wants to take Lani's Chevy for a little spin.....like to HIS garage! Roy showed surprising restraint, only drooling on the front left fender once.
And so we came, we drank coffee, we ate donuts and cookies, we talked and told stories, and we sold old parts - lots of them. We sold enough that we got the club treasury back up to about $700, ensuring a nice main course at the cRc Christmas party (December 10th) AND we paid in advance for our spring space at the SPRING 2017 NORMAN SWAP MEET. Just in case some of you have been living under a rock, the cRc always provides the main course at the Christmas party and YOU provide the corn casserole the salads the beans the dip s and all those homemade desserts.
A few thanks:
To Dan and Twila for putting this thing on, 2 times per year.
To Don Garner, who helped us set up the space, and came in on the very early shift each day.
To Harlan Butler who makes things run smoothly while remaining ever-present and blending into the background. And the first batch of coffee each day. Harlan tucks the space in each night.
To Lawrence Terry, Ray Langley, and Billy Henry who are our primary floor hustlers, watching so that we don't lose a sale, and no parts walk away without being paid for.
To all the rest of you who dug parts out of the dimly lit corners of your garage or attic and lugged them to the fairgrounds - marked them up and marked them down and negotiated the price or donated all or part of the proceeds to the club- everyone thanks you.
And to those providers of donuts and cookies, wow were they good. I can't wait until the night of December 10th!
