Thanks for running it - i was super-happy to be there and do shopping.

Unfortunately, the real 'problem' is something that's the case in any
hamfest, swapfest, etc.  95% of the 'dealing' is done before hte
public arrives.  I am as guilty of this as the next person, but I was
in there 20m after the official opening date, and the piles of 'sold!'
gear was enormous.  Too many buyers, too little gear maybe?

I don't really have a fix for this.  Perhaps a chunk of it is
post-pandemic "YAY we can start doing this again!" enthusiasm.
