Feedback on EMRIG 20 December 2014 Swap Meet

Whenever having a Swap Meet so close to Christmas, there is always a worry. Questions like “Has everyone left town on holiday or has everyone already purchased their Christmas Presents” come to mind. Well, the above questions could be answered with a No and a No. The turnout was again just fantastic with everyone coming out to snap up some bargains and to get that something they wanted to fill an empty hole in a Christmas stocking.

There were even the moms seen doing some purchases for their better half! As for the Swap Meet itself, it was another record for the tables needed. Now up to 44 tables from the last time of 40.

Please look at the attached photos and make a point of coming to the next swap meet. Half the fun is just socialising and meeting up with friends. The Maxis that has just opened was also a great hit with folk being able to sit down and have a relaxing coffee or breakfast.

In closing, the Emrig club would like to wish all our fellow modellers and friends a truly wonderful Christmas and a Prosperous new year to all of you and your families.

    Thanks guys. I am the new ‘kid’ on the block. Started with model trains only 12/12/2014. Please keep me posted on events in and around JHB / PTA. Met a lot of stunning people at Northmead Mall. (and got a nice photo of myself on your site – in front of Dick’s / Nature Model Scenery stand)

      Thanks very much for the kind words Piet. We hope you have a fun time with arguably the best hobby in the world.
