I hope that Robin doesn't mind that I posted this, but I know he's got a lot going on these days and I wanted to make sure folks didn't miss out on this great event!  


This is an incredible meet with great friends, members (and guests) , tons of fans, and wonderful food each and every year. As others have said, we in the Northeast are as much a family as we are fan collectors and it'll be great to see everyone- it's been too long. 


And sadly this will be the final year that Robin Cook and Edwin Jarvis will be hosting this Spring Meet in PA. DON'T MISS IT !!!  As I said, don't miss it. Robin will be heading to the warmer clime of Florida later this year, and hopefully we can count on more meet activity down there!  It is with great hope that we can continue with the 3 northeast meets per year. Later this summer, in August, Tom Zapf will host one in Lincoln Park, NJ,and in September, Jeanie and I are hosting one in Downingtown, PA, not far from Lancaster and Philadelphia. ( Both fliers are in this months "Fan Collector" magazine) 


This meet draws some of the best craftsmen, mechanics, and motor wizards in the hobby. If you have a question about your fan, there will be someone there to help you. 


And fans...  I've seen the best variety of fans at this meet than anywhere. Show fans, fans for sale, and fans being repaired. It'll all be there. I'll be packing the Explorer to the gills with fans for sale. 

Austin Ko has a load on the way, as does Jeff Rusnak. There will be a lot of fans for sale there of all kinds and prices. All at prices well below Epay

Hopefully we'll see you there!

I'll be there and can't wait! I'll be bringing some of my favorite fans like my Kick Start, a beautiful lollipop, maybe my side winder.

May be bringing some fans to sell too, I have a 1900 Pancake that's in great shape ready to move along to a new home.

I'm getting excited now!!! Only 2 days until Robin's meet.  You know that feeling as a kid when it was the night before going to the amusement park on vacation? Ok,my wife says only I get this excited to go to a fan meet... that just can't be! 

Anyhow, the Explorer is packed to the gills with fans. Only problem is I forgot to leave room for the suitcases. Jeanie says she will be driving and the suitcases will go on my lap. Oh well , the price we must pay to go fanning. 


Jeanie and I will be heading to Coopersburg around noon for an early afternoon arrival to assist. I hear rumors that Mr. Hane is already there and talking fans. Lol.  Can't wait to arrive and chat with all of our friends. It's been too long! 

Coming along with us are presents for all the good boys and girls that bought fans already. That was half the load at least. I'll also be bringing a handful of the ones posted as well as a restored 12" front oscillator Peerless and a tall base BMY. They're from my collection and are technically to show, but who knows, a price tag may be attached to them. 

Robin is already beginning to cook the yummy goodness that we all can't wait to enjoy, 

If you're on the fence about coming, pack the darn car and make the trip, you won't be disappointed! Oh, and bring fans...lots of them. Guests are welcome, so if you've never attended a local meet, this is your chance to actually talk to a great bunch of folks that know A LOT about fans instead of typing questions.  

Weather is supposed to be superb on Saturday. Mid 70's and partly sunny. Can't complain about that!!

All I can add is :clap::clap::clap:

See you all there , 

Lane & Jeanie

So excited! Fans are being packed in the car as we speak. I will have some gems for sale including a minty 12-inch Darth Vadar, some brass and brass and a few other vintage (non-fan) electrical items. Looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday morning!

Can't wait to see you all! I'll be up early Saturday afternoon, depending on traffic on I-95 (we come up through Delaware and pick up the Turnpike coming into PA) as well as the Turnpike. It's about a 2.5hr drive from where we are. Can't wait for the meet, hope to come back with some goodies! :)

Vincent, don't get there too late on Saturday as a lot of the goodies change hands early in the day. Though in the afternoon sometimes there are good bargains from folks not wanting to haul the stuff home. See you tomorrow!
