Been going to this for the past 15+ years and it's been less and less attended every year with less and less swap meet parts.
Perhaps just better advertising like this will bring the people and their parts out?
I understand you view...
Hence, That is MAIN REASON I am getting all attention for more PO to bring a truck/trailer to get parts out there to go into good hands for others to give a lease of longer life on older Porsches...Not only for rewards for best show car but PARTS are hard to come by due to LIMITED production and NLA on early 911's and better expose for younger generation to see what is Porsche SWAP is all ABOUT.

Remember, Swap Meet is a combination of everything- Each year VARIES. I have been going there close to what you had gone there 15+ years and in your views appears to be less and less...It has UPS and DOWNS as expected like EVERY SWAP meet all over US.

It was based on MANAGEMENT itself when it had gone thru changes/makeover during construction going on in the last few years and lack of maintaining "motivation" to get more attention each year.

It usually takes TIME and an EFFORT and MONEY to get Porsche dealer employees to get it going into overdrive to get arrangements for Swap meet.
I am helping them to split the responsibly among each one of us in order to maintain to keep it "ALIVE" instead of being "DEAD" like zero yearly swap meet! it is gonna be a great time to meet ol' familiar faces and all that "catching up".

I am getting into gear to get more attn. out there than only Pelicans.
So get your seat belts on and drive out there and see it for yourself - Not only for a HOT DOGS , AWARDS hayday, and all that. But YOU will enjoy the whole day of getting in touch with PORSCHE COMMUNITY as itself and as a WHOLE - Where else can you go for Porsche ONLY SWAP meet around HERE in PORTLAND AREA?? You tell me.
PS - IF YOU EVER SEE any PORSCHE owners driving by ya' or parked anywhere near you - Just holler them to mark calendar for Sept. 8th swap meet event...that is what I did on daily basis if I see PO driving their Porsches and they all responded "I"ll be there!"...No matter how many head counts but spread the words will take care of itself, right? Cheers!
