September 2015 Swap Meet Update

DSC_0049The W6TRW Amateur Radio Swap Meet will continue to be held at Northrop Grumman – as usual – through December 2015. The dates for the Swap Meets are:

    September 26

    October 31

    November 28

    December 26

The future beyond this is still up in the air.  We are working with Northrop Grumman as well as pursuing other potential locations. Some good progress has been made but we are not able to make any definitive announcements at this time.  We anticipate continuing the Swap Meet after the first of the year.

Ensuring the future of our Swap Meet is a top priority for the Club.  Many people are working behind the scenes to make that happen and it just takes time to line everything up and get all the pieces in place.  Please be patient with us and know that we will let you know what is going to happen as soon as possible.

In other swap meet news…

We heard from many people at our August Swap Meet the the Chino Hill High School Electronic Swap Meet has been closed down.  Unfortunately, the rumor is true.  I spoke with a representative from the school and received an email from the organizers and here is the official word:

***Notice*** All Chino Hills High School Electronic Swap Meets have been temporarily suspended. The CHHS Music Department is hopeful that appeals made to the Superintendent of the Chino Unified School District will result in reinstating the fundraiser. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and hope to see our ESM family again soon. For updated information about our ESM Fundraiser, please visit our band website at: www.marchinghuskies.com.

We wish the folks at Chino Hills the best of luck in getting their swap meet back.  We don’t look at them as competitors but as partners in that we both serve the ham radio community.
