When has ANYONE ever heard of 2 HRS ON FRIDAY & till 4:00 Sat for a national mart?

Maybe the folks will confuse the preshow with the national?

Jon,
Looks like my packet says set up Table holders Friday 2-4.
Mart Sat. 9-4:30
Mart Sun 9-2

So most of the buying will be among the table holders on Friday

r









Jon,

I agree that the Friday deal is nuts but what is so bad about 4:00pm on Saturday? By 4:00 most of the people in the mart room have always been packing up. I am listening. I will listen. I just don't get it...yet. The Friday think is bad.

I have yet to talk to single person who thinks the Friday hours make any sense.
They should have had 8-10 set-up on Friday, then open til 4:30.

Really a waste of a Friday, for us working class

too much wasted time for set up

Why not at least 2-6 or 12-6?????

Sat 9-5 would be correct

WWT moved their opening day to Wednesday.. NO Tuesday show for WWT...

sent via email 11 May

WORLD WIDE TRADERS NEWS
May 11, 2018

Good afternoon WWT members!

In an effort to serve you better, WWT has changed it contracted dates with the NAWCC so our members do not have a lag/off day in between the two shows.

Our new dates are now - July 18-19, 2018.

That is a Wednesday and Thursday with the NAWCC starting Friday.

WWT is always working hard to make your trip easier and more cost effective.

Bottom line: Who in their right mind would plan a watch show with a 3 day interval going into a Sat mart ONLY to LEAVE FOR THE WEEKEND to be with families and wives/girlfriends?

Thus, the DORK SHOW!

Then I was told incorrectly.

This new fact makes it even worse--three days if idle NOTHING! Who will stay?

But, the fact remains that those 1 table holders Friday will sneak around and snag watches from 2-4:00 PM

Does everyone know that it is quite aways from the convention to ANY hotel/housing in York?

Be prepared to rent a car or hitch rides from hotels to the mart!

The watches will still be there.

Just on a different table at twice the price.
