It's really just a swap meet. I went once with friends who love going there, but I was not crazy about. If you want to check out old parts & stuff then it's good. I didn't see much Corvette stuff at all. If there is a good response to this I might go just to see the crew.
There is a HUGE indoor flea market across the street also.

Dave....it's more of a get together of the folks from the area.....this swap meet was a convienient meeting place for the mid-winter get together that was auto related, sort of in the center of the PA, MD, NJ, maybe even NY area....never much going on concerning Corvettes in winter unfortunately. We're open for suggestions if anybody has a better idea.Smile

Swap meets are fun! You don't have to be looking for Corvette specific stuff to go...I find all kinds of neat stuff. I bought my neat-o fender covers at a swap meet, cheaper than ordering them from the vendor, too. Service manuals, owner's manuals, and stuff like that can also be found much cheaper than e-bay, usually. You do normally have to search out the Corvette stuff...lot of folks don't know what it came off of, or what it fits, but if your looking for a specific rim, trim piece, or starter, etc., it's worth going. Beside, ya gets some good walking exercise!
Mama & I hit the Pate swap meet every year(since '97). Pate is one of the largest automotive swap meets in the states, and it's an ALL DAY sucker to walk, even if you don't stop and haggle.
Sounds like a good place to have a mini-Gathering, to me!Thumbs Up

Not unless you have a fully equipped Radio Flyer w/sideboards I ain't!! LOL
And by "fully equipped", I mean with zoomie exhaust pipes, Fuel Injection emblems, racoon tail on the antenna, umbrella rack, cooler, and, of course, the "Student Driver" license plate...you know, the usual swap meet wagon stuff!! Tongue

I got a postcard on this also?? I am supposed to work this weekend but can swap with someone..not sure if I would drive the car but I guess weather will determine that!! Also...going to a swap meet with me with my heavy OCD issues would be fun..I'd be all over the place!! I guess put me in the radio flyer!! Or tie a leash harness on me..Allentown isn't all that far so that would be a good stretch your legs trip....now the real question will be top up or down? Ok..just checked out the website..um..it sucks..but oh well..I guess they have a couple hundred people there to answer the phone..because that's all they have on the site..won't change my mind on going though because the one picture shows some oil cans..maybe get lucky and pick up a few new ones I don't have.

Sounds like a fun time, still to far (5.5 hrs) for a winter hike over the Pa. mountains for my Sled.
 
Take lots of pictures.
 
We need to find a bullseye like Binghamton or someplace where we all can reach within a few hours for a big Ho'Down in the winter Hug

Big smile   Hey ELBOW man!  No reason why we cannot set up a couple of destinations and get as many people together as possible. I would come up to BING town and help you gather some folks in that area.  The OAKDALE Mall would be a good spot to meet and eat. Exit 71N I think off 17/87 west.

Man, Binghamton would be way too far for me! Allentown is a streach but doable. I'm jealous, though. Dan and Cathy have it made, it's right in their backyard! But on the plus side, they can scout out a place to eat and such! Sounds like a good time! It'll be great to see everyone and catch up with how much money we're dumping into our cars!   LOL  Probably won't even have the Vette back by then, but probably wouldn't bring it anyway. Weather is too unpredictable this time of year and Vettes are NOT good snow cars! Hope this works!

I won't take the Vette, the parking is in the flea market lot, lots of room but it's like parking at the super market.
I can make a Bing town meet also.

It could be more East Barry....someone needs to look at a 2-3 hour driving range for us and see where that location would be? Must be a program somewhere that we can put in locations and see "Zones".....this sounds like a job for Rich he is into the high tech electronics.....Wink

Al, Wilks Barre PA is about 3 hours from your place, and 3 hours from Barry's place.
Thats the best mid point for you two guys.

Binghamton, NY in January.  Sounds FUN.  Heck, am now down on the Gulf Coast southwest of Galveston with no plans to join ya'all.  BUT come spring time when the top can drop and I get the house in the Poconos turned on, Binghamton or anywhere in the Northeast would be great.  If'n ya'all need a sunnier, warmer place, I think I know where to find it.  Out on the back deck overlooking the Gulf and Christmas Bay.

Hi All-  The Stuntman & I are all for a get together!  Allentown Fairgrounds are only a little over an hour from us....so we are IN!  I'm trying to think where we could go for dinner.  I used to be up that way alot visiting customers (Mack Truck)   Give me a day & I'll post some suggestions.  I know of a couple of "small" hole in the wall places, that have great food.

I love Pittsburgh, but my goodness is it inconvenient to the eastern side of the state from here.....5 hours 30 minutes to Allentown, or the same time to Wilkes Barre......I could almost make Ebos pad in that much time.....
Or the Indiana state line in less than 5....... 
 
 
HMMMMM maybe a Pittsburgh gathering in the up coming years (after a west one of course)....

Per the posts I have a count of 13 persons attending so far....with the possibility of Paul who has not committed yet. Guess we will have to decide on a cut off date so a place with sufficient size can be determined and reservations made......any ideas Question  Question

Was wondering what those attending think about also including in the days activities of making a visit to America On Wheels museum also here in town. http://americaonwheels.org/
It is just on the other side of town from the fairgrounds where the swap meet is. Check out the exhibits section of their website and give me your opinion.

At this point unless its a major problem for anybody we can just meet at the fairgrounds since there is directions to get there, and meet at 9:00 when they open. The time can be modified somewhat if necessary for those coming the longer distances. Give me your thoughts.

That's fine with me, but I think 10 am might be better 'cause of some people having a long ride.

No problem....10:00 a.m. meeting time is what it will be. I thought maybe 9 might be a little early. That's why asked for thoughts on it. Thumbs Up

Here is mapquest pic of the fairgrounds. Large white building on left is where the swap will be held. There is a gate close to the building on Chew St. We can meet right inside that gate.

Okay....got the place for dinner......http://fairgroundshotel.com/.....they are just about on the same grounds as the swap meet and they have no problem accomodating us and even have a seperate room if necessary. Tried it out last night and food is good and the prices very reasonable. I will need a committal by all attending by next Saturday...1/14....so the reservations can be made. What I also need to know prior to making reservations is everybodies thoughts on a time....an earlier luncheon or a later dinner? They can do whatever. Approve

Lunch would do fine, then the longer drives will have more time to get home.

I can meet up with you guys for lunch on Saturday the 21st, Jan, 2012. I can not, however, do dinner. I already have a date with the wife for that evening.

I would not be attending for the cars or show... just to hang out with my C3VR buds!  So I just need the time & place to meet for lunch.

I'm now subscribed to this thread, so please keep me posted on meeting time & place.

Thanks!

Welllllll.....at this point it does not look very good weather wise for our get together. Some forcasts are calling for 3-6 " of snow here in the Lehigh Valley and 4-8" in the Poconos, and others are calling for 3 " then turning to sleet and freezing rain.....just my luck...no snow all winter so far Cry Weather forecasters have been known to be wrong,Wacko so unless anybody loves driving in snow we may have to postpone. Guess we can wait till last minute or whenever the forecasters make an absolute determination that we will have snow to decide.Confused

That's a shame. It would not be bad for me with 4X4 truck and not far away, but I don't think it will work for those more than an hour away. We can try for something else another time.

We can wait and see but I agree the forecast does not sound good. We have a 4X4 truck but I don't really look forward to driving over 3 hrs. in the mess. Maybe it will miss us!

Hi All:  Sorry - I've been off the radar.  Frank and I are in if we still have it this Sat. (we too have a 4 x 4), but it would definitely be messy (we've been known to not let bad weather stand in our way, but we too are only a little over an hour away)
 
I'll watch the thread to see if we're still on - Dan, you're right, the weather folk have been known to get it wrong...lol  Hope it changes track - I was really looking forward to seeing everyone!!!

We have 2-4 wheel drives too and we are close so we are more than willing also, Barb. There is also a large farmer's market next door to the swap meet that you might want to check out also besides the museum. I know Kathy will hit the market. Calling for 2-4 inches of snow then changing to rain....that's a nusance snow to us. So if anybody is game we are too Exclamation

Unhappy They are calling for Snow, Sleet, and FREEZING rain in the North East. Ouch It will be in the 2 hour range for us in Good weather. In my S-10 in Yuk, and depending on the abilities of the other drivers, it will no doubt be longer.  We would be in for another time also. M-n-S
