Just spoken to Martyn Wharrie who will be bringing older F3B glider stuff and a slope soarer for his table.

There will be a YMAS Club table with the usual type stuff too including some airframes. I think one of them is an unflown Skyways Chipahawk with cowl.

Also, a sorry looking Hi Boy (mark one) that needs a repair to the front lower fuselage sheeting, a tidy up and recover. I know that there is a bit of a following for these and this one is worth getting back into the air.

Tea and coffee along with biscuits will be available at the swap meet.

Just got back  from the swap meet.

Great job by the YMAS lads.  Warm, clean and tidy venue. The extremely cheap table or public entry price included hot drinks and biscuits served up by the delightful ladies in the canteen. It couldn't be faulted. 


Hopefully you'll run it next year. Can I book the same tables please. 😁

Thank you to all who attended and made it a great success. It was our first swap-meet and from everyone’s positive feedback, we’ll be doing it again next November.


Thank you to all the individual traders who came along. Tables and tables of fantastic stuff and lots of happy faces.

I was really surprised at the distance many had traveled to be with us. thanks for doing that.

It will be great to see everyone again next year.
