CTARC Forthcoming March Meeting - 3 March '18

A scene from last year's Mega Flea Market
The CTARC's March meeting will be, as is always the case, our Mega Flea Market, which is traditionally held on the first Saturday in March. In this case, that will be the 3rd of March, 2018.

This is probably the largest flea market / "Swop Meet" of amateur radio equipment in the Western Cape. It is always well attended and the ideal opportunity to sell off surplus equipment. For the buyer, there are usually lots of bargains to be had. But... caveat emptor - let the buyer beware!

You don't have to be a member of the CTARC to attend, to buy or to sell items at this event, although our friendly club always is glad to welcome new members into our fold. The event is also a social highlight on the amateur radio calendar and a great chance to meet up with friends and to chew the rag face-to-face.

Sellers are requested to bring their own tables and/or to sell items out of their car boot. Tables are in very short supply at the clubhouse, and the CTARC needs their own to display items which will be on sale at reasonable prices.

Sellers will be charged a ticket fee of R10-00 per vehicle. The good news is that this ticket will enter you in the lucky draw to win a prize! (Non-sellers may also buy a ticket and enter the raffle, too).

Scrumptious boerie rolls and liquid refreshments will be on sale throughout the day.

The setup time and simultaneous start of the Flea Market will be 12h00. While the CTARC committee members will meet before 12h00 to set up the event, we really would prefer everyone else to respect the starting time. The event usually lasts until about 16h30 - 17h00.

Sellers are requested to remove unsold items from the venue when they leave. The CTARC cannot take responsibility for any items left behind (and we have no space in our clubhouse, anyway!).

Further details will be published as required here, announced in Ragchew, at the February meeting, and on our Sunday Morning Bulletins.
