The Rotary Club of Cobram runs its eighth annual swap meet on Sunday and anticipates it could be the biggest one yet.
Rotary Club of Cobram Swap Committee’s Adrian Bennett said as of July 31 275 sites had already been booked.
He expected bookings to continue rolling in until the day of the meet.
‘‘It’ll be close to or go beyond our record with sites this year,’’ Mr Bennett said.
He said this year could see the largest attendance numbers at the meet yet.
‘‘We’re expecting around 3000, based on the average that paid through the gate last year.
‘‘That’s not counting kids under 17, who get in free.’’
Admission for adults is $5 per person, and prices for sites are $15 for an outdoor, and $20 for an undercover site.
The Shannon’s All Wheels Show is also due to set engines revving, allowing people and clubs to display their vehicles in 15 sections.

Mr Bennett said a highlight of this year’s shows will be the Honda HRT Motorcycle Simulator Challenge.
He said during previous years, the simulator got lots of attention from the younger attendees at the meet, all competing for the fastest time.
Sections on the simulator are open for men and women and under-16 boys and girls, with trophies awarded to each of the section winners.
With high expectations for this year’s meet, Mr Bennett said preparations were underway to make the day run as smoothly as possible.
He said there was only one thing that was really beyond the Rotarians’ control.
‘‘The weather’s the only thing that can go against us,’’ he said.
