    I was behind the Developmental parts display with my truck/trailer/ pop up canopy. This is the first year I was charged $25 for a spot to sell parts. Just curious, is this the first year to pay for space to sell parts? Or just the first time I was asked to pay?

    I thought there wasn't any charge to vend parts in the past. Maybe that changed this year. But some folks just sell a few things, some set stuff out in the pits, etc.

    That was my thought also.

    To tdaction... I have been a member of the GSCA since 1984. I don’t have time to go back and look in back issues, but they have always charged for vending spots. I do believe that if you’re selling just a couple items out of the back of your truck they kind of looked the other way, but if you set up a tent and start selling particular items than you are a vendor and there is a charge for a vending spot. 6E7EEE8D-ECFB-4853-BB29-211C8DFAC3F1.jpeg

    Awesome! Guess I should become a member to get the scoop. I have ZERO issue paying my share, I did get rid of extra parts and would not have without this event.
    Thanks for setting me straight!

    The Vendor fee of $25 is cheap for 3-4 days.
    I have paid before and when I got there this year I paid and got approved where I wanted to set up.
    Thanks again to those that stopped by, and also to those that support, or help keep this Event going with their time.
    I sold all the cranks and rods I brought for KBR.

    I was selling parts off the beaten path and not many people were stopping by. Briz stopped by to get his tag and it only made sense to give a roll to him, since he gets around.
    I hope someone grabbed the extra roll from WOT at Finish Line. I also wonder if someone grabbed the roll from the GSCA tent?
    I have almost a roll left so if I go to any event with V8 members, I'll bring these with me.

    I have a small amount left on the roll I got from you. Less than 1/4". I gave out a butt load of those stickers

    I remember one year someone went around from the state maybe a d handed out forms for sales tax. Anyone else remember that?

    Always been a vending fee if you are on vendor row area. They always brushed it off if it was in your pit spot out of your trailer or truck.
