Venue?

And the 1st of August is a Wednesday... They could mean the 4th?

Coolo. Slap the other forum's OP around a bit and I shall await the update.

I'm still way off being organised enough as a seller myself - but if that's the venue, it's still cruisy treadling distance from my place to come over for a gander.

Just looked up the venue myself, to make sure it's where I thought it was :

    Bob Gordon Reserve
    Cnr Parry Ave & Benningfield Rd
    BULL CREEK WA 6155

Google Maps --> Link <--

And I found the Swap meet in the club pages as well :

      To be held in the Southside BMX carpark. Bring along your bikes, parts & gear to sell....or come & buy something!

      See Sandra or email savill@bigpond.com to reserve a bay
      Stay for racing afterwards, racing starts at 3:30pm, non-members $5.50



mmm... This give me more time & less excuse to sort some stuff out!

Is this just going to be BMX stuff or general gear?

I'm taking some "general" gear... ie. more 80/90s roadie stuff. Some loose MTB stuff from that period. Nothing too e-bay busting, just odds & bobs surplus to my needs.

Last one we had was a bit of everything, we had road bike stuff, dragster stuff and bmx stuff.

Lets face it, Perth isnt big enough to have a lone swap meet for a particular style on its own!

They're not too plentiful here in ol' Sleepy Dullsville, unfortunately. I'll keep my ear to the ground and post on BNA if I hear of anything. Quicksilver, the original poster, is a bit more across some other internet forums, group rides and such... I'm sure he'll do the same and post here.

These are community events basically, so even if you see one posted and advertised somewhere that might not necessarily be your particular bicycling niche it's still a good thing to pop in and at least have a quick butchers around, buy a coffee, hot dog or whatever.

Sure this one was primarily BMX as was mostly expected, but I covered the cost of my stall with mostly roadie & misc stuff. I didn't leave with more than I came with stuff wise (thanks metalrideroz for a few swaps ;) ) and had a good time gasbagging with Quicksilver and other people just passing through. Some who literally just rode past and found the event.
