UPDATE: WARCI is still moving forward as planned with our scheduled swap meet on Sunday, March 15th.
If you are planning on attending on Sunday, here are some helpful precautions to keep in mind to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus:
- If you are feeling sick or are immunocompromised, please stay home. WARCI has six more meets scheduled for 2020 and we’ll look forward to seeing you then. The CDC warns that “Older adults and people who have severe underlying chronic medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness.”
- Skip the handshake! A friendly hello will do.
- Wash your hands! The Hampton Inn has bathrooms just outside the ballroom, please wash your hands during the show, before you touch your face, eat or drink, and once again before you return home to your family.
- Follow these recommendations from the CDC.
Doors open at 7:00 AM for setup. The flea market starts at 8:00 AM, announcements are held at 10:30 AM followed by the donation auction. Each meet will vary slightly, so check out the monthly flyer for more information!
As typical of most swap meets, the items are for sale by individual collectors, and most are one-of-a-kind. So for best selection (and the best deals), BE EARLY! But please stay around and get to meet some of the club members. These swap meets are a great way to connect with other local collectors that share your interests. By socializing at the meets you can find others that may have what you are looking for, radios & parts, people that can service your radios, and you can make some good friends.
Swap meet spaces are $7 for WARCI members, and $10 for non-members. Please note, due to limited space, tables will be limited to 2 tables per seller for the West Allis meets.
