Swap Meet & Summer Break

Directions to Shoreline CC

Swap Meet

The Antiquarian Radio Society will have its annual Swap Meet on Sunday, August 21, at 9am in a parking lot at Shoreline College. We are going to have a small group of AES-Folk placed together at it and want to find out the extent of your interest in being there and selling off some of your stuff. There is a large built-in attendance and we would like to take advantage of their event instead of organizing our own. There is a minimal cost to being part of it ($15) but you don't have to be a member of either their group or ours to participate.

We will be together as a group and identify ourselves as members of the PNW AES Section, and we will do some extra promotion on Craigslist stating what we have to sell, independent of the ARS' promotion. We are tacking on a donation $10 per seller to benefit our Section and hope you think that is both a good idea and a very nominal way to have a decent way to get rid of some stuff and support both groups.

More info? Want to get a space for selling? Send email to Dan Mortensen at


The slate of candidates was elected by acclimation.

Summer Break

Summer is partly gone already, and you've probably noticed a lack of communication from us. On Monday, the 18th, we had a smallish-but lively tour at Cascade Record Pressing and Telegraph Mastering. If you've never seen a disc cutting lathe before, then you missed some really serious gear porn. Think about German machinists with terminal OCD. If we're lucky, we may be able to turn this into a meeting or two.

The business at hand now is to do some vacating ourselves, maybe go on a trip or three, and hopefully have as good a time as you are... We have a planning meeting in mid-august, and at that time, we'll get a head start on meetings for September, October, and November. December is always iffy, as there are holiday parties to compete with, and we would not want to interfere with your holiday party plans.

If you have an idea for a meeting, please contact the Section Chair, or any of the section officers or the committee with your idea.

AES PNW 2016-2017 Section Chair
