Guess I somehow missed you there, Eric. I stayed over at the hotel both Friday and Saturday nights. I thought it was a good/average crowd on Saturday. I think the flea market vendors have been scared away by bad weather on Sunday in the past, so the flea was very small on Sunday. I still enjoyed myself and will be back again next year.

Next event: NEARFest!

I went both days and had a good time. Helped my ham buddy/neighbor in the Flea. I bought a few things and sold a few things. Saw a few old friends too. They had some nice high ticket prizes too.
