Looks like the Pate Swap Meet is scheduled for 4/30 thru 5/3/15. Last time I attended was back in 2001, but I'm back in Texas now and live about 30 minutes from the speedway, so will be attending again. Was wondering who else planned to be there selling or buying? The website says gates open at 7am on Thursday.....is that when vendors first start setting up or do they set up Wednesday?
Thanks, Richard

I think the majority of the vendors will be set up by Friday morning, but not all set up on Thursday. If you don't want to walk for hours, they have electric scooters to rent. I will be there all day on Saturday. It is a massive event. Bring a hat, sunscreen, and comfortable walking shoes or money to rent a scooter.

I'm going on Wednesday to pick and will be set up on Thursday-Saturday. You can either walk it or rent their scooters. No mini bikes, lawn mowers, golf carts or personal scooters are allowed. Not sure about bicycles. Only after 5 p.m. can you use these types of transportation.

Yeh ! Dick would chime in that we should plan accordingly and go to the meets. He chastised me for asking that question. Some of these are just way too far to go to.

I went last year and personal handicap scooters were allowed. My batteries played out and all the rent scooters were gone The rental guy said he brought 275.
