ABATE Dist 1 Swap Meet:
Greg Bright and I set up a booth at the swap meeting to promote the Diamond Chapter. Greg put his Servi- Car on display.
It did get lots of attention. You just don’t see Servi-cars everyday. Greg had to work Saturday so i worked the booth
all day. James Sandage, Butch and Pat Jones keep me company for a while. The weather was not the best so the attentance
was low. Not many venders there. The bike show was small also.
 I all ways see old friends and meet new people at the swap meet. Greg and I were there most of the day Sunday
but the crowd was very small, so we packed up around 3:00.  
We did hand out a lot of flier and had a lot of interest about the Antique Motorcycles in the Park show in Sept.and the Mini Road Run.
I like the swap meet but it is getting smaller and smaller each year.
Good luck ABATE, hope the swap meet will continue.

Closing Comment:
Well winter is still with us. Not much snow and ice but plenty of rain. Spring will be here soon I hope,
so we can do some riding. Not much has been going on so not much to write about. Lots of events coming up in the Spring.  We will be having a meeting at James Sandage’s house sometime soon and
at Butch Jones, when the weather gets better.
I will let you know. 
Ride Em, don’t Hide Em !
