Good Morning Everyone!!
RACE SEASON IS FINALLY UPON US!!!
As a few who have attended the recent meetings know... I am looking to revive the LQMA Spring Swap Meet bigger and better than EVER before.
With hopefully nearing 20+ new drivers joining the club this year looking for new stuff and possibly some family's looking to change Engine classes or upgrade cars, now is the time for us to get together and acquire some of those loose ends or spares for cheap!
So whether you are cleaning out your shop, have grown out of last years gear, or interested in turning some extras or spares into some new tire money! THIS IS THE EVENT to attend! Please feel free to bring anything to the track you may feel someone else could benefit from. Items as simple as old racing gloves, to full on turn key cars, I'm sure someone out there could and would appreciate giving new life to this stuff. Likewise if you are looking for some stuff for yourself, what better time then now.
I know first hand as a novice family last year, just how challenging it felt to acquire what I needed to get involved, for a budget I was happy. With such a great group of people joining and with all the members we have, its important to me that we do our best to pay it forward and help each other out, especially as everyone is getting their stuff from storage and their cars fired back up for the season.
So on Saturday, March 10th @ 10am, I will be organizing a Swap Meet in and around the Hot Shute Area, where we can all be covered (should the whether not cooperate). Where all the new families will be attending Track Orientation and Ride Day, and I'm sure would be happy to meet a lot of us, as we welcome them to the track. There is absolutely no cost, just money back in your jeans.
If anyone has or still connects with old club members that still have gear and stuff, PLEASE PLEASE pass along this info or forward it on to them for me! I'm sure they will love this opportunity.
I will also bring a pop up tent should we start to bleed out from under the cover if the turnout is strong. If you would like to do so for your own use as well I strongly encourage it. If you would rather sell out of your trailer, that works too, I will be blocking off the areas between the chute and snack shack for trailers interested in getting involved. Otherwise if we are all spread out all over the track people might be less inclined to wonder or introduce themselves and see what you have to offer.
If anyone has any questions or would like to inquire about anything in regards to this please don't hesitate!
ALSO LASTLY, I WILL ADD THIS: If you have a few small items your interested in selling but don't find it worth while to attend for the couple bucks it might make, or you are unable to attend schedule wise but don't want to miss the sales opportunity, reach out to me and find a way to get your stuff to me and I can always facilitate selling your items on your behalf after a heavy race tax lol.
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR TIME! Hopefully see a lot of you on Saturday!
