Alamo RadioControl Society (ARCS) Swap Meet

by Ed Valls   July 17, 2016

On Friday, July 9, I had the pleasure of attending the ARCS Swap Meet held in San Antonio. The event was well attended and ARCS should be very proud of the event. The following article and photos was submitted by ARCS member Jim Witthauer.

The Alamo Radio Control Society of San Antonio Texas hosted an AMA sanctioned two-day swap meet July 8th and 9th. Nearly 300 people attended the event browsing the twenty-four vendors and fifty tables that filled an old fire house and the grounds to the fire house entrance. It was by far the biggest swap meet in the San Antonio area in recent memory. With plenty of food and drink available for the hungry and thirsty, the affair culminated in an auction led by Jim Rice, AMA Executive Council, and a raffle which included prizes donated by HobbyTown USA, and Al’s Hobbies both of San Antonio, and donations by ARCS members. Organized by club member Tom Richards the event was a sure success. Delighted with the event’s success ARCS is contemplating an annual fall swap meet when cooler weather prevails.
