Thread: Swap meet concerns

  1. #1

    Default Swap meet concerns

    I have been anxiously waiting for several meets this year, but with the current situations going on I wonder if its going to be an uneventful summer. I realize there are health priorities, but does anyone else have thoughts on this?

    I'm betting it blows over by Davenport...

    Keith sent out an email yesterday on this and says to look at each chapter sponsoring an event to see what decision if any they have made. I think it's going to take a little while longer before folks decide what they are going to do. Obviously Sunshine just had theirs. For a lot of these it is a partially a financial one. I don't think any one wants to contribute to the problem but they also rely on the money too so.... I think wait and see. I'm not cancelling any hotel rooms at this point but will see what they decide. It alos depends on whether vendors are willing to show and again that is a question of making money over possibly getting infected. I'm sure the thought and debate are just beginning.

    I am a little more optimistic, I think that by June we will be up and running for outside open air events. Inside events like basketball or such is still going to be a an issue. Fort Sutter meet should be fine but who knows........

    It is all up in the air until we know more. I suspect the first half of the season will be band.

    Yeah, I am anxiously waiting to hear when someone makes the decision about Oley. I had plans to camp out this year instead of just doing my day trip too!

    I think the decision to cancel will be made by the state or feds.
    Possible 18 mos. of social distancing according to feds.
    Pa state liquor stores closed.I live on the other side of the delaware in western NJ and the PA residents are comming over to our stores which are open.Makes sense right.

    I received an email from Buzz Walneck that the April swaps for Woodstock, IL may be postponed. Nothing official yet, but he asked that vendors contact him before the event. April in Woodstock has always been a great meet. It used to be HUGE! It's still a good one, even though it's no Davenport or Wauseon. We've always looked at it as the first blast of the season around these parts. I hope everyone is well and let's hope this is all done before Davenport.

    This is my opinion which means very very little. If YOU are the kind of person that really thinks in the next 4 or 5 weeks that this will just simply and calmy blow over to a point where Oley PA will welcome with open arms a few thousand people from all over into their one horse town, YOU are a very very very very optomistic person...........46EL

    Hey Gang
    Covid19, presents the very real potential for us to lose the entire AMCA Swap Meet and Road Run schedule for 2020. With the G-ment shutting down all of CA and NYC and many States considering more and more restrictions on the public, the outlook is glum. I hope I am wrong, as Arlo said "I don't want a pickle, I just want to ride my motorsickle."
