Northeast 2008 Pin Swap
Southbury, Ct.

Pin Trader Club of Connecticut

Phil Dzurnak, Club Treasurer

The second Northeast Pin Swap hosted by the Pin Traders Club of Connecticut was great according to all who attended. Although small, possibly due to high gasoline prices and a conflict with another pin swap being held in Missouri, all 28 pin traders and guests enjoyed the fellowship,pin trading and overall the food and accommodations provided by the Hotel and club.

The trading area was exceptional with plenty of room to move between tables.  Thursday night pizza party was great.  The Friday night barbeque (food provide by the Hotel) was terrific with many traders going back for seconds.  After the barbeque Lion Rosemarie Spatafore provided some fun and games.  She supplied us with craft material and had all present help in using the supplies to make up a Lion’s theme.  After that several traders/guests tried their hand a “Pin the tail on the donkey”.  While no one was completely successful, many came close.

At the start of the Friday Night Auction we weren’t quite sure how many items would be available, however, thanks to a few pin traders from outside Connecticut we had 94 items to auction off.  It was a very successful auction with several exceptional items.

The swap ended Saturday morning with the Hotel providing an exceptional breakfast.  As we parted ways to go back home many traders expressed thanks to the Committee and the Hotel for providing them with a great and enjoyable time.  The next Northeast Pin Swap will be hosted by the Pin Traders Club of Boston, so please plan on attending.
