I was originally planning on skipping Hershey this year, but I'm starting to weaken and reconsider.
Anyway, please post your swap spots and any special items you plan to offer here in this thread so that folks can mark up their maps and find you.
Here is a link to maps of the various fields:
RJ&L VINTAGE WIRING SUPPLIES CN64-66
cloth covered spark plug wire, cloth covered 10ga,12ga,14ga primary wire, asphalt loom, etc..

Also, don't forget Free Cookies & Sodas on Thursday morning at 10am. RED Field, 4 aisles south of the HCCA HQ Tent, spaces RWG 30-31, near lamp post #21.

I'm in the usual spots, GCC 5,6 in front of the Giant Center almost across from the crab-cake vendor. Will have some brass lights, clocks, interesting automobilia, some early lit, and who knows what else we might decide to part with. Might be out shopping when you drop by but do try and catch us there to say hi. Don't forget to bring some old spark plugs!

3 nice wire wheels (I may find a 4th), wire wheel hubs.
Several windshields, I'll get some pics of them, 3-4 are T, a couple are 21 back and at least one is newer style.
A couple I think are V8 and maybe Model A.
Lots of stuff, a whole trailer load of 90% T parts.
Ask for Dan and tell him Dave sent you.
Thx for setting up this post! I have just decided that this year it will be - my first visit to Hershey - and my som have told me that he will happily join me.
So I will use this post to make a plan for who to visit.

He doesn't want to haul much home, if you know what I mean !
Folks up near the old Hershey Arena may be interested to know that Hersheypark announced a major expansion yesterday called “Chocolatetown”. It isn’t exactly clear, but from the artists renderings it appears to me that it will occupy at least some of the parking lot at the corner of the arena. It’s essentially moves the entrance to the front of the park with shops, a restaurant and a new roller coaster.
It’s supposed to open in the Summer of 2020 so there may be some impacts during construction for next year as well.
Anyways, don’t mean to be a downer, just thought folks would be interested. Enjoy the show and pray for good weather!
P.S. Expansion by Hershey like this is inevitable and this is just the beginning. The will also be expanding over to the old golf course across the road that used to go behind chocolate world. I still recall going to Hershey Region meetings as a kid and hearing them discuss buying their own property to hold the meet. This was when it was still all fields around the park. It was a concern then. Interestingly enough, the show seems to have shrunk at the same rate that Hershey has built up the property.
Here is a pic of my spaces, watch for this trailer.
