Dearest listmembers,

Under grey sky with the temperature hovering around the fifty degree mark, the 2008 spring T-Town swap was held. The velodrome track was being resurfaced so the infield was not available. Management rented fence and made a ring around the parking lot area for the vendors. The pro vendors kept their space in the front entrance. Ray Homiski, Larry Osborne, Tom Hayes and I shared a corner space which was larger than most. It sort of served as the unofficial CR Listmembers meeting area. I thought that due to the iffy weather, vendor and customer headcount was down.

There were a few good buys to be had though. A set of four Mafac NIB Canti brakes for $20. A suede leather Cinelli sock for tubular tires, Giles Berthoud handlebar bag for $100. A Rochet frame set, Bob Jackson bike for $750. And a 58cm Italian Masi GC with twin plate fork crown that Homiski was selling. Of course Curtis & Joel were there buying up the joint before the sellers had a chance to unload their vehicles. Despite their best efforts, they missed a few items.

We stayed til 1:45pm but bagged the post swap ride as it was damp and raw.

Wayne Bingham and I passed around the cirque flyers and made sure that every vendor had one. Many comments from people saying that they were going for the first time.
