This message is on behalf of Surveyors Historical Society,  

On Thursday afternoon August 29, near Stargazers Stone in Chester County PA, Surveyors Historical Society will be hosting its annual 'Rendezvous Swap Meet' of antique surveying equipment. This is open to everyone interested in buying, selling, trading, hunting for bargains, etc. All Pennsylvania surveyors who would like to display antique items are invited. Surveyors will be there from all across the United States and around the world. 

The Swap Meet runs from 1:30 to 4:30 pm. Tables will be provided under shaded tent cover. Items offered for sale must be surveying-related antiques, such as old instruments, tools, maps, plats, books, etc. Anyone wishing to sell items MUST CONTACT the Rendezvous organizing team at 240-394-0825 to arrange display space in advance. For non SHS members, there is a modest fee of $20 per 8-foot table for Swap Meet space. 

For those wishing to simply come out and browse, the entire event is open to the public for free from 1:30 to 5 pm. In addition to our annual Swap Meet, there will be hands-on demonstrations of colonial equipment, a chaining competition, reenactor exhibitions, a historic dedication ceremony (setting the "real" Stargazers Stone) and many other interesting activities. Everybody is invited. Kindly contact the SHS Rendezvous 2013 organizing team at 240-394-0825 for directions, details, etc. Please be aware that parking is limited, and restricted to certain areas only.  

With highest professional regards,  

Surveyors Historical Society
