Gold Prospectors Swap Meet, BBQ, & Swim

Postby shack » Sun Jun 29, 2014 11:00 am

This has been kicked around but never done, so let's give it a shot and have some fun!

Gold Prospectors Swap Meet

Date: Saturday, August 30th, Labor Day Weekend.
Rain or Shine: Yup. Prospectors don't melt.
Setup: Setup for sellers will start at 3:00 pm. Please don't come early to setup. You can set up later if you show up later.
Swap Time: 4:30 PM - 7:00 PM. Please no sales/swaps before 4:30. Be fair!
Water and Power: There will be water and power to demonstrate small gear, pls bring extension cords.
Local Clubs: This is good opportunity to get the word out about your activities.
Location: 26505 Stonesiffer Lane, Unionville VA 22567 (take Stonesiffer Rd directly off Tower Rd).
House: We're the very last house on Stonesiffer Lane. Just go straight down the road to the very end.
Stuff: Bring anything related to gold prospecting to sell or swap: gear, tools, cons, gold, labor, etc...
Dealers/Vendors: Come on out with your shiny new stuff and bring your haggling skills.
Haggle: Of course! Walk around and get the best deal.
Tables: Bring your own if you need tables. I have tables for food (of course).
Chairs: Please bring your own chairs. Folding camping chairs work great.
Chow Time: 6:00 pm
Chow: BBQ, hot dogs, soda & water provided. Can we convince Kev to make some of his killer BBQ?
Potluck: You're more than welcome to bring a dish to share. Greatly appreciated!
Swim: End of summer dive-in. Kids require parent supervision in the water (8.5' deep and diving board...)
Proceeds/donations: Will go to VA Gold for forum/server costs and pay for the BBQ.
Raffle Time: 6:45 pm. You must be present to win, tickets sold on site.
Raffle Items: Pending, will update.

RSVP

Please use this thread with how many people you are bringing and if you are bringing stuff to swap. I will edit/update the thread as needed based on responses. Please let me know if non-forum members are coming so I can count them too:

Currently:

That sounds really cool. Count me in. I'll come alone, but won't be able to make it until 7:00 due to the j.o.b in Alexandria. Because I'm coming from work I'll only be able to bring potato chips. Will bring 4 flavors of rt. 11 chips. I will bring some swap items as well.
