As posted before the Larz Anderson Bicycle Show & Swap is coming again this year on Sunday July 20th on the grounds of the Larz And erson Automobile Museum, 15 Newton st., Brookline, MA 02445. Entry charge for adults is $10, for children $5.00. This covers entry into the show with bikes etc. There is no additional charge for entering bikes i nto the show or swap meet spaces.
The Museum has a new staff on board headed by Tyler Burns, Ass istant Director, as of a few months ago, and for everyone involved in the show it brings a breath of fresh air to the Museum and our show.
Friend Maurice Bresnahan, and Co-Chairman of the show & Ty ler Burns of the Museum have worked out an agreement so we can now bring ba ck the swap meet this year, so we can now revive the show to its original format. There will be no charge for the swap meet. We ask that ever yone try and pre-register for the swap, although folks can show up the mo rning of the show to register. Set up time for the swap starts at 8:00AM.
We have about twenty table that the Museum has on hand, but once those are gone we will be renting the tables from a local supplier. Th ere will be a $10.00 per table charge to rent a table once the initial supp ly of the Museum are all signed up for.
Set up time for the Concourse or bike show will begin at 9: 00AM, but for those attending the Vintage Ride, staff will be on hand to re gister the bikes by 8:30. Pre-registration is not necessary for the Conco urse, but we would like to know what you are bringing so we can publish it as a preview to the list.
As we do every year, voting for the Concourse will be by "Popular Choice" voting of everyone attending as ours is not a Concourse de Ele gance". A list of awards available will be posted in a few days.
