I didn't go, but from my work buddies that go every Spring and Fall, they both said that this SwapMeet was more just dudes unloading old parts from their garage. In the past, you'd have bike shops liquidating old stock, and internet shops passing through to move stuff for cheap.
I've bought 3 bikes at the swapmeet, and only one was complete (My FS Jamis MTB). Both my road bikes were bought and built for about $1000 less than I would have paid at a shop.
I didn't go this year because, strangely enough, I just didn't need anything.
