    Wichita, KS Swap Meet - March 16-17

    OK, folks - You may remember the old Model A Sunflower Swap Meet was sold 2 years ago. Last year was the final time we met out at the Kansas Pavilions just off I-135. This year it will be held in Century II Convention Center in downtown Wichita right next to the river and Douglas Avenue.

    Midway Chapter will be in booth J-10 on the west side of the Convention Hall (close to a snack bar and liquor stand).

    At this late date I still cannot find out what the deal with parking will be. Century II is surrounded by parking meters that used to be free on Saturday, but not anymore. You can park across the river at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium and catch the free bus that goes back and forth.

    Expect local traffic to be hideous. This will be the same weekend of the NCAA March Madness First and Second Rounds at Intrust Arena nearby, and we are expecting tens of thousands for that. Also - the local St. Patrick's Day Parade will go right by Century II on Saturday at noon. That means traffic will be blocked for a couple hours in downtown.To top it all off, there is a concert event in another part of Century II Convention Center - so parking will probably be a fight.

    This is also the same weekend as the Chickasha Swap Meet.... Just keeps getting better and better, doesn't it? Malcom Gillette and I will be there if at all possible. Hang onto his cell phone number, OK? It's (620) 694-7647. My cell doesn't always work downtown, but you can try me at (316) 519-9636.

    Everything clear as mud?

    Looks like I will be missing the first Wichita swap meet in many years, Chickasha looks like a much more pleasant venue.

    Always enjoy seeing you and Malcom, and appreciate you representing SDC at the meets.
