Now that you have the dates, I recommend you purchase a Program Guide in advance or as soon as they are available. I note/circle the Model A vendors and visit them first and then visit others as time allows.

To Bill,

Thank you very much!!! I did not know this. I did not know that a Program Guide was available.

How would I be able to get my hands on one? When do they become available?
Who would I be able to get this from?

Thank you for your help. I have never been to Hershey. I want to go this year.

Thank you,

Hershey should be on every car guys/gals bucket list! Not sure if I can go this year.
I've been a few times. Certainly worth it! Jeff

JohnB15632:

I usually purchased mine on the Hershey grounds. There is contact information on the Web Site listed in Jon-Ohio's post of yesterday at 10:53.

It's wise to study the overall site map to see where the different fields are and then to study each field map to see how the rows are numbered and laid out. These maps are on their web page.

JohnB15632,

A week or two before Hershey folks on Fordbarn who have swap spaces give their space's number.

For example, Gary Johnson has tons (literally) of Model A parts. His spaces are RWK 13-19. The R means that his swap space is in the red field. After you get your guide at Hershey and look up RWK 13-19. The map will show you where to go.

Also, in the weeks before Fordbarn members will impart information like "if you want something at a swap space buy it because you most likely never get back to that space and/or the part will be sold".

So stay tuned. Until then get yourself fit by walking every day. You will not regret getting "in shape" to walk Hershey.

I always have a good time. Not sure if I am going this year. The first thing that wears out on me is my feet.
