White Hills Radio Flyers Swop Meet 4 September 2010


The WHRF club asked me to post notice of the SWOP MEET/BOOT SALE scheduled from 09h00 on Saturday 4 September 2010 at WHRF.  Please see for directions to the field.

Traditionally, RC modellers excel at accumulating "projects", "stuff", "bit's-n'-pieces", "tools", and various "just in case" items which ensure that dust is not deposited on shelves/cupboards.  With the weather changing towards flyable again, now is the time to clear out the old (to make room for the new).  Join us at WHRF on 4 September 2010 from 09h00 for a fun day where you can meet with like minded RC modellers keen to trade some of their accumulated "stuff" or sell this at real bargain basement prices.  Some LHS will also have stalls with both 2nd hand & new items in stock.

Entry, parking & stalls are 100% free, i.e. gratis, no charge, no insurance required, but you'll need to get there early to snap up the bargains. Please bring your own shade, table & chairs and since the event is self catering, you might require snacks & drinks too.  Braai fires will be made available from 12h00 onwards (also for free!).

The WHRF field will be available for flying so why not bring an airworthy model along too (but, of course you will need an indate SAMAA card to fly)!
