Everything was finalized today. Yes, It's on a Saturday and the location is now LBVMS. The Long Beach location isn't new to us as you know. The Huntington Beach High School location is no longer available. The parking lot we were using was converted into a softball field. Having the show at LBVMS will give us alot more room as well. Cool

Great news and awesome location! I have always liked the previous OCTO shows at Long Beach because of the layout & plenty of room for swap and display.

It seems that HB High has become too small in the last couple of years anyway with full capacity and gates closed by 7:00 A.M.

I think Saturday works out great too!

Oh yay...
Another parking lot show Sad Isn't there any place with grass or trees in So. Cal.?

JUST KIDDING !!!
We'll be there for sure. More room means more swap space, means I don't have to get up at 4am to be in line by 5, to get in before the gates close at 6:30. Means we won't be packed in like VW sardines. Means you'll be able to let in Bay Windows, finally.

Or not.

Plus, no worries about foul baseballs and softballs. No uptight swimming parents pissed because there's no parking for their Escalde. No neighbors to complain about VTO's choice of classical 70's funk.

This is gonna be great!!
Ps. Can I still bring my "NO ASPHALT" flask?

Huntington Beach, Long Beach, any Beach. Single Cab Mafia will be there swapping and buying. Veteran's Stadium is closer to where I live and a much larger venue. So will fit way more Busses, in my opinion. Sounds good, whats the food situation? Hot dog Fred or should we cater ourselves! LOL
