April's "Spring has finally Sprung" Swap

  • April 24, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We are in the CARD ROOM for this swap.  Note: new start time of 7pm sharp for the swap to officially begin going forward.  See updated time break down below.  We must be out of the center at 9pm therefore the quicker everyone arrives and sets up the better.

Hello, it's swap time again! To ensure everyone can participate with enough room we ask everyone to please limit your items to 30 per swap.

We have room for 20 swappers at this event, so RSVP ASAP to reserve a seat. Please be sure to update your RSVP if your plans change! If you get on the waiting list, there's a good chance that a spot will open up for you, so be prepared to attend. If someone cancels, the first person on the waiting list will be moved automatically to the "Yes, I'm going" list and if that is you, you will receive an email to that effect.

Swappers get HALF of a 6-foot table to display their items. (Clothing can be hung separately on our clothing rack.) You'll get one ticket for each item you bring - up to 30 items. Your tickets are your currency for swapping.

When you arrive, claim some table space as yours, set it up and come tell me or DJ how many items you brought with you to get your tickets. Also please get a name badge. Then you'll be given some blue painter's tape and sharpie marker to "tag" the items others have brought that you would like to have. It's okay if there's already a tag on the item; you can still tag it. That means we'll have a bidding war and that's really fun!

Feel free to post items you will be bringing and what items you are looking for, remember we do not exchange any cash at this event.

Please bring a snack or appetizer to share. I will bring a beverage and provide cups, plates, plastic ware, and napkins.

OUR AGENDA:

Set up: starting at 6:00pm 

Shop, mingle & eat 6:30-7:00

Swap starts at 7:00 sharp

Looking forward to another fun evening!

NOTE: Meetup fee is $2 per person, per swap to cover the cost of the room and Organizer's monthly fees. This fee will be collected as DJ distributes your tickets.

Many thanks to D.J. for assisting me with the swap process and keeping it moving along, also a great model to boot. Thanks also to all of you who stay behind to help pick up and pack up items for donation.  And a big thanks to Larisa for taking all the unwanted stuff to a donation place of her choice.

    Another fun swap, it was great to see a couple of new faces. There were some awesome items that found new homes and it appeared everyone got what they wanted. We had a couple of fun bidding wars and as always DJ was great as a model. Thank you to anyone who stayed after to help pick up the room or assisted others with stuff back to their cars. Take care :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
