Camp Plymouth FALL Swap Meet and Show Sept.14 thru 17, 2022

Post by John Neuenburg » Fri Jul 22, 2022 11:03 pm

Event details are going here rather than on the Events forum because I have editing rights here. FYI the Events forum will have a post with a link to this one.

The Fall 2022 swap meet and MV show returns to the 49er Village RV Resort and adjacent Amador County Fairgrounds in quaint, historical Plymouth, September 14-17, 2022. This is the smaller version of "the biggie" which is the April Camp Plymouth, which is scheduled for April 19-22, 2023. the Fall swap meet/show is the last buying and selling opportunity of the year. Time to clean out the garage!

Here are the bullet points for the Fall meet. Come back for updates:
  • Swap meet for pros and amateurs. No vendor fee but must rent a campsite or cabin
    Informal military vehicle show. All welcome, any condition, any country of former service. No MV registration
    No admission fee
    No parking fee
    Display/parking space for those commuting from hotel or home in MVs
    Visitor parking and the fairgrounds campground are at 18843 Empire Street
    NOTE: there is practically no visitor parking inside the 49er Village RV park. Do not park in a campsite that is not yours because it will not be open for long. You will be towed
    A MV excursion has not been planned but one could be added to the schedule if we have an organizer with an idea
    Women's gathering at 2 pm on Thursday at the patio by the cafe. Bring own food, beverage, not for sharing
    Women's offsite brunch and shopping 9:30 am Friday, to historic Placerville. Depart from 49er main gate. At 1 pm our Activities Coordinator Nancy Porter is giving a talk to the Sierra Renaissance Society about Gold Rush family stories and tips about genealogy. You are welcome to attend. Location is the Lion's Hall on Missouri Flat Road just Northeast of El Dorado.
    MVCC Board Meeting Friday 10 am
    MVCC General Membership Meeting, Saturday 10 am at the 49er Amphitheater. Bring chair. All welcome (Camp Plymouth is not just for MVCC members. We welcome all to the meet and to our club)
And the nuts and bolts:
  • RV and travel trailer camping only at the 49er, no tents at 49er except free standing canopies for vending or displays
    Tent and car camping is at the adjacent fairgrounds
    Amenities at the 49er include pool, spa, cafe, kids play area, washers and dryers, restrooms, showers
    For hotel info contact Nancy Porter at nancy@forkintheroadtravel.com
    Grocery store, restaurants, dozens of wineries, are close. A restaurant list is on a separate post
MVCC has arranged a group discount block of sites and cabins at the 49er with a 4-night minimum. Rate will be good for several days before and after our event, for those using the place as a base for tourism. You must go through Jo-Ann Lesser to reserve a space in our block, not the 49er office. Jo-Ann gives the 49er office a list of who reserved what site in our block. You then contact them to confirm and pay for your site.

She also organizes the campground at the fairgrounds just over the 49er fence of mostly dry sites and one row of water/power sites. No minimum stay at the fairgrounds. For fairgrounds sites, pay the MVCC in full before you arrive. Sellers will be throughout our event

For those wanting to rent an RV or travel trailer and stay at the 49er, Advantage Caravans in Sacramento is offering our Fall and Spring event participants a 20% discount on the nightly rate. See www.advantagervrentals.com or call 916-832-8824. Pick an available unit online, request a reservation, and in the Requests field say you are a Camp Plymouth participant and ask for the discount. A confirmation will arrive with the correct price on it. Add the fees to the RV site rental to compare to renting a 49e cabin or hotel room. Advantage will deliver, set up, and pick up a unit for a reasonable fee. This is a great way to have amenities, stay near friends, and allow you to drive or tow your MV and trade goods.

Reservation form for both campgrounds is in the MVCC newsletter and will be on www.mvccnews.net on the event calendar listing shortly. If you rented a space in September 2021, your name is on it now. Tell Jo-Ann to confirm you want it again or request a change. There will be a deadline. Unclaimed sites will be turned back to the 49er system. Where you were at the last Spring meet does not put your name on that site for the Fall meet.

Tuesday is a set up day. Sunday is a pull-out day, not a show day.

For other campsite and cabin information, Jo-Ann is at MVCCCampmistress@yahoo.com

The infamous jeep showcase in the arena in 2019. I think 65 here and 10 or 12 elsewhere in camp. FYI one of the showcases for April 2023 will be WW2 Jeeps. Another is Military Dodges.

As of right now we are pitifully short of registrations for campers over in the fairgounds to the point where we don't even cover the cost of the porta-pottis so if you plan on coming get your registration in to JoAnn NOW!

The original post has been edited in several places, to include more activities and a 20% discount for renting an RV or travel trailer.

Here is the full-page color ad that will be in Military Vehicles Magazine hitting the mailboxes this week. It is for the big April 2023 event with a bullet mentioning the Fall 2022 version. Much of the info applies to both events. We want to get the news out early about two 2023 vehicle showcases: WW2 Jeeps and Military Dodges. If you want to be in them but need parts or paint, consider shopping at the September 2022 meet. You might save some freight costs.

If you want to save and print this for posting at your favorite antique or auto parts store or VFW hall to help us get the word out, great! You can ask me for a slightly larger version for 8.5 x 11 flyers. Email better than PM.

The official flyer for the Spring 2023 meet will end up with customized event artwork, assuming the MVCC follows the tradition in recent years to make high quality event logos for the shirts and other merchandise for sale.
