    8th Annual "BIG EAST" Karting Expo (Take Two) New Info

    8th Annual Big East Karting Expo 2019 Edition

    A little info for the change back to last years location..
    The new location were adding more and more expenses on us as time went on.. The number of commitments were not coming in fast enough to gamble on coming close on expenses nor did we want to have a large building half full.. So Don Gordner and I decided to drop back to last years location which was FULL Up and crowded..

    With this said Don and I are dropping all expenses down to the ground floor to help keep the 7 year old show going into the future and go back to work on a bigger location for 2020..

    ALL Sales Spots are Just $30 each... (as of 2-11-2019 we ONLY have 11 indoor spots left)

    9) 10x10 $30 ea
    1) 10x20 $60 (End Cap must be sold together)
    1) 5' x 20' $30 (Full End Cap)

    OUTSIDE Sales Spots (Sell From your Trailer) $15 (We ONLY have room for approx 10 spots and can be regulated or eliminated by Snow Clean up) They clean the parking lot if it snows and snow piles can work against us..

    Show ADMISSION > FREE FREE (Sponsored by Dover Power LLC)
    ** There will be a Donation Box inside Front Door, if you want to help us keep moving forward you can drop anything you feel inside.. This money will go toward securing a bigger facility for 2020.. (Help us Help You)

    We have 50% of the spots occupied at this time. We like the concept of individuals selling their used stuff so others can get a good buy to start their program in the sport. SO, if you have stuff to part with, your cost is only $30 with table provided and no fee for entry. Let's get it filled up. Call me 570-515-0379

    I wouldn't mind seeing some racing lawn mowers. It seems to have caught the attention of several people. Bring one or two to the show.

    Jerry and I would like to say a really big thank you to all who came. The companionship and friendliness that was shared was fantastic. I met a lot of new people that I only knew as a code name on Bob's. The prizes that we're raffled and the silent auction was one of a kind. We will do it again. Because of the mess we ended up with over the Bloomsburg site, we weren't as big as we wanted but I will change that for next year. Once again, Thank you and see ya next year
