FALL SWAP MEET AND GATHERING IS ON FOR SEPT. 2019 IN PLYMOUTH!

Post by John Neuenburg » Fri Jul 12, 2019 8:14 pm

GREAT NEWS! The annual Fall swap meet and MV gathering in North-Central California returns! It will be September 17-22, 2019 in Plymouth, California! Location is the same as the April meet - 49er RV Village for RV sites and cabins, and the Amador County Fairgrounds next door for tent camping, visitor parking, and displays that don't fit in campsites. Open gate and path in-between sides. The Military Vehicle Collectors of California is the organizer of this and the larger Spring swap meet (which by the way is April 14-19, 2020).

Prepare to buy, sell, swap, tire-kick, drive, lie, tour, party, wine taste, bond, hang out, and even relax in the scenic and historic California Gold Country and Shenandoah Valley Wine Country!

MV excursions, ladies' shopping and lunch trip, dinners, meetings, Normandy 75th and European jeep tour presentation, MVCC merchandise booth.

Our group block in the RV Village is 55 RV campsites and 17 cabins (5 Studio, 7 1-Bedtoom, and 5 2-Bedroom). These are mostly together on the north side of the 49er RV Resort on the inner loop. Smaller block because the Fall meet is always smaller than the April meet. As before, the 49er sites are for RVs, travel trailers including pop-ups, and even pickups with commercial camper shells. No tent camping there. The adjacent fairgrounds area is again the location for the Tent Sector, with some sites having shared water and the rest dry. The sites are a little larger this time.

NO visitor or parking fee. NO MV registration or fee, bring 'em all, any condition. NO vendor fee but sellers must rent a campsite or cabin.

Four night minimum at the 49er, no minimum at the fairgrounds. Group rate is available several days before and after our event. 49er sites not in our block can be rented at the same rate. Rates (with group discount, including tax) at the 49er for the Fall meet are $53.35 / night for RV sites, $146.52 / night for a studio cottage, $216.81 / night for a 1 or 2 bedroom cottage. Rates for the fairgrounds are $35 / night with shared water, or $25 / night for dry sites. The fairgrounds is not intended for RVs and travel trailers.

Reservation procedures for the 49er are different than for the April meet. There is a reservation form to send in, now available on www.MVCCNews.net along with detailed info, layout maps, and the Daily Briefing (schedule). The form is for members and non-members. Jo-Ann Lesser will again be our Wagonmistress organizing ALL reservations. You can only book at our discount price through her. Payment must be made to the MVCC for 49er and fairgrounds sites. Do not contact the RV park. Please do not bother the office staff when you can get your answers from her or other MVCC Board Members.

Here is the flyer updated on 7/27. Tell your friends about this meet and new Fall venue by sending them a link to this forum thread or copying and sending this flyer. If you want a PDF version send me an email request:

Military Vehicles Magazine just came out and our full page color ad is in there. It is what we also call our event flyer. There is also a calendar listing, and they printed a piece in News and Views section about the Fall meet changing venues, and a bit about the Spring meet moves in recent years. Unfortunately I let a big typo slip in that article. Wrong dates for the Fall meet!

Go by the ad, various calendars, MVCCNews.net and the newsletter: September 17-22, 2019! Setup day Tuesday, pull out day Sunday, not a show day.

The flyer is available via email if you want to print and hand out or post where MV types are likely to be (nearly anywhere!) Just send me a request.

REMINDER - RV site and cabin reservations at 49er RV Village have to be a four night minimum. All participants get our group discount. No minimum stay at fairgrounds tent sites. See the original post here plus layout maps on www.MVCCNews.net for information about our RV Village block of sites and cabins.

Updated Daily Briefing is below, courtesy Activities Coordinator Nancy Porter. Note the info about the Thursday MV convoy to the CalFire Training facility. Time to get the MV insurance and registration renewed. This is great MV driving country!

Ernie Ongaro and Matt Parry will give a video presentation of their six jeep Normandy and Europe excursion Friday evening.
