Title: 2018 Swap Meet
Post by: bob o on December 17, 2017, 11:25:52 AM
It’s that time of year again, SWAP MEET time, same place, different date. This year we have moved our date back one week to Saturday, MARCH 10th 2018 from noon till midnight, another change in the format is the silent auction. This year 100% of the proceeds will go to MCBC the Michigan College Bass Circuit https://www.michigancollegebassfishing.com.  I hope to have a few college team members present for a meet and greet. The auction rules are the same, bring anything you would like to donate and it will be auctioned off by people placing bids on the bidding sheet in front of each item. At 3:30, we will end the bidding and announce the winning bidder for each item. As a lot of you know, this is also a pot luck type of event, I’ll make a couple batched of chili and chips etc. to get the lunch going other guests usually  bring a few pizzas, buckets of chicken you name it and it will most likely be on the table. We will also have cold homebrew and soft drinks but feel free to bring your own refreshments. So bring stuff to trade, sell or donate or just come on over to talk fishing with a bunch of my/our good friends, leave last year behind and start next year off on a good note. Please leave any and all grudges at the front door.
Now for the makers or sponsors of fishing equipment that would like to donate items for the silent auction but can’t make the date March 10th you can find me on http://www.greatlakesbass.com or http://www.bbcboards.net/forumdisplay.php?f=64 , https://www.facebook.com/bob.osen.9  or email me,  bkosen@mi.rr.com or call 734.788.0155.

Location: 15675 Oporto Street Livonia 48154

See ya soon!

Thanks for moving it a week.  My wife makes me go to Florida for 2 months.  Luckily she has to be home for a show that that weekend.  I will bring some Canned Sunshine for the swap table.

the MCBC will be at both the Novi and Grand Rapids show so the 10th works out great.

This is almost here. I did send a message to Mike from Mikes RX Baits (now retired). Hopefully, my message didn't go in to his spam folder.

Do you take Bass Pro gift cards? ;D (actually, I already spent them - mostly on Tungsten sinkers and a few crankbaits and hooks to replace some of last year's pike losses)

Made it home from Fla.   Saturday may be the first time I go outside to come there.   3 days ago I was watching bass protect beds.  Today I am staring at an Ice Covered Lake.    This Michigan weather zuks.

Every year Mike (21xdc) brings some sort of leadheads for the auction table. If you have some lead you won't be using, bring it along...i'm sure he would appreciate it.

dartag, just think how much more you appreciate spring when it gets here after having to wait through a winter! I think our Michigan weather makes for more appreciation in general of the great days that we have to endure the not-great days!!

Thanks again to Bob and Karen for hosting another great time at the lure swap. It was good to see everyone again. Will see some of you at Magwags, and to the rest of you- have a fun and safe new fishing year...

I bet everyone had fun! Sounded like it was lively over the phone when I called Mikesmiph to tell him that I did NOT want to come over and share whatever I caught at Outdoorama. One of these years I'll make it!
