The COARA spring swap meet has been cancelled and will not be rescheduled. Due to the statewide lock down that extends till May 1 we will not be able to have this meet. Additionally, we want all of our members to be safe, healthy and ready to join us in the fall when we will try again with our fall tailgate swapmeet.
Due to the virus apocalypse, we are cancelling our March meeting, originally scheduled for Wednesday March 18th. This is out of an abundance of caution and the fact many of our members are of a certain demographic that should remain away from folks for awhile.
