The following phrase from the new flier should be put on the event's
official web page. As the page looks now, there's little reference to
anything other than vintage computing, which I don't believe would make
the event very enticing to HAM radio and vintage electronics enthusiasts
who helped the last swapmeet get as big as it did. I believe we should
continue catering to the other closely related hobbyists in all texts and
advertising of our swapmeet events. Yes, I see the link to the flyer on the
page, but why not offer a complete summary of "WHAT" on the event's page
since they're viewing it anyway.

*"WHAT: Vintage Computers & Electronics, Radios, TVs, HAM Radio, Other

And now, at the risk of being pedantic... I don't think we need to put "
https://vcfed.org/wp/vcf-swap–meet <https://vcfed.org/wp/vcf-swap-meet>" on
the web page, once, much less twice as it is. It's a redundant link to the
same page that they're already viewing the links on. Perhaps we should add
links to any pictures and reviews of the past swapmeets so new potential
vendors can see we have a rather successful event history.
