  Chicagoland MG Club:Driveline
Fifth Annual All British
Swap Meet and Auto Jumble
February 25, 2001
8:00am - 3:00pm
DuPage County Fairgrounds
Wheaton, IL

Since 1997 the CMGC swap meet has been held on the last Sunday in February at the DuPage County Fairgrounds in Wheaton, Illinois. Both the content and the visitation has been increasing yearly. The most recent meet on February 27, 2000 had about 80 vendor spaces and 800 visitors. We outgrew the space in our original building and had to take over a second building.

The meet is intended for all marques of British cars and has been well attended by other local clubs and their members in the past. Other attendees have traveled from several neighboring states as well as outlying Illinois locations. All vendor spaces are inside, and refreshments are available during the day. This event requires more help from members than most of our other events, so volunteers are needed to help with set-up, clean-up, ticket taking, etc.

General Admission $3; Vendor Space (10'x10') $20; tables $3; chairs $.50; pre-registration recommended for vendors due to limited space. Please contact either Jim Evans (630-858-8192) or Dave Mullis (630-916-7358) or any club officer if you would like to register as a vendor, or if you would like to help.

Hope to see you all there!
