If it's on every month, how does new stuff ever appear and interest is kept?

I find I see tons of the same stuff when going to yearly swaps.

It's worked for many years at Hershey, don't know why the Barn should be any different. Even though the Barn is local I've never been there so all the stuff will be new next month. Bob

I had one done a few years ago' the first time i stood up i knew that i had made the right decision. It takes a while to get past the operation but i'd do it again in a minute.

I went this morning, saw Bill (BCCHOP). Roads were in tough shape with watery ice, took 2-1/2 hours to go 30 miles so turnout was down but had fun and saw many friends anyway. Glad Ken Ct. didn't attempt to come as the roads were real bad.

I started out at 5am got as far as Hamden on I-91 and hit 3 patches of black ice in 10 miles and turned around and came back home. Truck almost did a 360 the first and was doing about 50-55 mph. After the 3 rd time I gave up came back by slower back roads. ken ct.
