Planning for the Stoddard Swap Meet on August 28th and 29th is going well!
We will be enforcing a strict mask or face-covering policy and will be asking everyone to maintain safe social distancing to maintain the safety of our staff, customers and show attendees. To that end, we won't be opening up our facility like we normally do. Activities and sales will all happen outside.
To make this happen, we had to make a few operational changes to the event.
A) The Friday Literature and Toy Show will happen outside. We will be setting up the normal tables in front of our showroom garage door.
B) There will be no dinner provided on Friday night. We will, however, have our normal sandwich shop as a vendor on Saturday for both breakfast and lunch.
C) The new parts sales area will be set up outside. You can talk with a sales rep, let them know what you want, they will take payment and your phone number. We will call you when your parts are available for pick up at our shipping dock. This should go smoothly enough, but we are encouraging everyone to pre-order your parts for pick up at the swap meet. All show sales, pre-order or on-site will receive a 10% discount.
D) Our normal scratch-and-dent area will be set up outside, rather than our warehouse. This will take up the first few normal vendor spots from prior years.
E) Vendor spots will be spread out with spaces in between each vendor. This might cause some shifts in where certain vendors are versus where they were last year, but we will make every effort to keep things consistent. No more than four customers per booth at a time.
F) The car show has been cancelled. We are allowing Porsches to park in our normal parking area, but there must be no congregating or mass gatherings of more than 10 people in the area.
G) There will be no access to inside restrooms. We will have multiple port-o-potties and a wash station.
