SWAP MEETS:   IRON RANCH SWAPMEET VANCOUVER,WA,SEPT18 posted by: JON IN DESMOINES on 9/19/2004 at 3:39:54 PM
ANY OF YOU NORTHWESTERN WIZZER FANS,AND OLD BIKE FANS THAT STAYED HOME CUZ YOU THOUGHT IT MIGHT RAIN, YOU WERE RIGHT IT POURED! WITH ONLY A FEW BREAKS IN THE CLOUDS IT WAS A SOGGY DOGGY, BUT TALKING TO RON MUNGER,ONE OF THE ORGANIZERS
AND BARBECUE CHEF,THE TURN OUT WAS DOWN ONLY A HANDFULL OF SELLERS AND THERE WAS A GOOD SUPPLY OF BARGAIN HUNTERS SCOOPING UP ON THE DEALS. I THINK THE RAIN LOWERED A FEW PRICES AS THERE LOOKED TO BE A FAIR AMOUNT OF TRADING GOING ON.BUT BY 11:00 AM THE RAIN HAD GOT TO MOST OF US AND PEOPLE WERE PACKING UP AND HEADING HOME TO DRY OFF.
IF YOU MISSED THIS ONE,YOU GOTTA CHECK IT OUT NEXT YEAR!
THE LOCATION IS AWESOME AND RON IS SURELY ONE OF THE BEST BBQ CHEFS IN THE AREA, SEE YOU ALL AT THE ARMORY SWAP IN THE SPRING! JON IN DESMOINES
