With August nearly finished, it's time to think of fanning in Downingtown!    September 16 is the date!   8 am sharp. 

Also, if there's enough interest, we'll have light refreshments on Friday evening for those coming into town early. 

If you were on the fence last year, make your plans now as you'll again miss a great east coast meet that grows each year. Last year there were over 200 fans here for show, sale and trade. 

If you're a guest, you're welcome to attend, but please RSVP. So that brings me to the point of the post. 

Please RSVP as soon as you can if you're coming. Jeanie and I will soon be planning for food, and an accurate headcount helps our planning for food and tables. I want to make sure we have enough to go around. 

Please help us to make the event a success! 

You can RSVP by posting on this thread, emailing me, or PM'ing me. The final RSVP date is one week before the meet. Please let me know a headcount for your family and if you're planning to come by on Friday evening. 

Hope to see you all in Downingtown!!

Lane and Jeanie

Only about a week left to RSVP so a reminder not to forget to let us know you're coming. We've received quite a few so far, but there are some of our fan family who've attended past meets that haven't yet made the list. There'll be quite a few folks here that don't live and breathe fans so bring your spouse or a friend. There's always good conversation ,food and friends, even if fans aren't your thing. BUT, if fans ARE your thing, definitely don't miss it! 


Please let me know if you're coming so we can make sure we have enough tables and food. It's going to be a great event again this year. I have accumulated quite a pile of fans that will be going out for sale. 


As a teaser, I'll have several very nice, restored GE Vortalexes from my collection (16",12",10") ,a chrome 6 wing Diehl, an overlap blade Emerson, an Emerson cabinet fan, a Commercial Aire Pedestal, some unrestored brass blade fans, a Westinghouse Table fan, and a handful of 8" fans. Lots more! Don't miss them. If any are left, they'll be offered on BST. 


See you all on the 16th!!


Lane and Jeanie

Just a reminder- Final week for RSVP. 
Thanks to all who responded last week.  Looks like it's going to be quite a group, with more than a handful of new guests attending.  We won't turn you away if you don't reply, but the potential exists for there to be a table/ food shortage if you haven't let us know you're coming. It really helps us with the planning.


Also, don't forget to let us know if you're planning to attend Friday evening.  So far only one planning to come on Friday, so as of now, we probably won't have a social hour on Friday evening unless more express interest-  Thanks to those who volunteered to help set up and we will really appreciate the help-  we'll certainly have refreshments for the helpers !!


We Can't Wait!!

And if you need some encouragement, Here are pics from last year's meet!!

Just after dinner is fine. We'll be having light refreshments only. If we get a few more attending then we'll get together Friday.

Just so you all know, I've turned on every fan I own and pointed them West, so hopefully Irma will steer West and away from the meet ( sorry you guys out west) .


But in all seriousness, our thoughts and prayers are with you guys in Florida and other areas in Irma's path. Be safe! Hopefully it'll lose steam before coming on land!  


For those who are coming and haven't RSVPed yet, please let us know you're coming. For all who are coming, stay tuned to the forum as I'll be posting some details next week that you'll want to know before arriving. 

I'll also be posting a rather large group of fans for pre sale or sale at the meet. Most likely tomorrow or Sunday. 


Only a week to go!

I have some exciting news!  I've invited OTR+Wire to come and set up a table with their selection of reproduction fan wires. I'm pleased to announce that Jacob will be coming with a supply of their wonderfully flexible wire and cable! 

If you're not familiar with OTR+Wire, they have the absolute best headwire cables, bar none. So, get your orders ready. It's rare to be able to get their cable without having to pay shipping or additional markup. Let's support them and hopefully they'll return to our other Northeast meets. Let's make their trip worthwhile. There are discounts if you buy a 50' roll. You will find that you will use it up faster than you might imagine. 


My suggestion is to contact them and preorder your cable so they know how much to bring and don't run out. Their website information is below. You will likely talk to Andrea  if you call. I'm sure they'll have plenty with them however. I assume they'll take PayPal, Checks , or cash. Their offering is shown below.
