George: I will be coming on board again to help Maurice run the show that I originated years ago, and not sure exactly in what capacity yet. Maurice has asked me to help co-ordinate the event once again, and I gladly accepted to spread the word that the swap will once again be a part of the event.
Right now I can't release any more information as this just came about yesterday, and as mentioned in my note to the group I haveto call the Museum of Transportation this week to find out more information, and to start the ball rolling on getting the swap going this year.
I can't make any promises as to how big the swap will be or anything else, but once I know more I will write to the CR. We only have five weeks to put this together for this year, but this is great news for future years, as in past years we've had up to 75-85 vendors with close to 100 tables some years.

Yesterday I had a brief discussion with someone at the Larz, and although there was no mention of a bike swap meet, I was told that the only bike show this year would be combined with an antique car exhibition.
Although I like antique cars, it would seem that the space at Larz is somewhat limited and I'm curious about the logistics of a bike show, bike swap meet and car show combined-although, it might be quite interesting!
Perhaps Boston area members, or others, could clarify this.
