    Sometimes Google is screwed up. Satellite view puts 3090 County Road 28 almost at the intersection of 28 and Hwy 115. Streetview puts 3090 right in front of Kawartha Downs Casino and Speedway about a click down the road. I'm going with the above posting from the organizer.

    You have to type in "3090 Northumberland County Road, Port Hope, ON" The location is just past Dale Road like the above post says. Streetview even shows the sign announcing last years show.

    Really easy to get to.

      Thanks for checking that out. Maps can be goofy sometimes. Simplest way is to get to the 4-corners at Hwy 28 and Dale Road - Signs will be there.

      Just a skip up from Hwy 401.

        Hi Alex. I could likely volunteer some time and energy. Send me an email and let me know what kind of help you need.
        Ray
        my wife just informed me that I have a prior commitment on Saturday the 12th but I am available to help and show on Sunday.

          Thanks Ray - will just likely need bodies to help manage setup and registration. And we will need bodies for the ACSCC table.

                    Rough Camping details - no pre-booking necessary -

                    "You will have 2 choices when you arrive, some vendors/flea market will want to stay by their machines and displays so they will camp beside. Others like to leave machines in display/judging areas and camp away along fence row[shaded?] and little quieter at times. Keep watching the websites for updates."

                          Show will be here before we know it! Once Church League Softball winds down, I will be full tilt on this one.

                            Hoping this event gets a good turn-out as this will determine future events. It is nice to be part of another event - so lots for everybody to see and do. Lots of other things to do and see in the area too.

                            Please chime in if you are going to attend.
