Yuma, Arizona, USA
Grand Canyon State Insulator club (GCSIC) is happy to announce the 21st annual tailgater swap meet coming up in a few months (Feb 1st 2020). This will be the first year that Diane & myself have taken over as hosts of this well know event! This is one you don't want to miss! Last year we drew collectors from 10 different states (and Canada) from as far away as New York! We had 29 sellers with 36 tables and plenty of glass and porcelain to choose from There were over 50 people in total that attended. Lunch will be served and is free (Donations are appreciated). The last 4 years, many of the collectors get together for dinner the Friday before the event. Over those four years the pre-festivities have grown to a group of over 20 people. This year we will try to locate a venue that can accommodate us a little better. Lunch will be served and is free (Donations are appreciated). Much more exciting info to coming the following months. The location is the same as always - Riverside Park Yuma Arizona. Take I-8 to exit 1 (8th st.) Follow 8th St to Prison Hill Rd, turn right at the top of the hill onto Levee Rd.
