10/6: Anniversary Games - Pin Meet - Details

Thanks to the hard work of a fellow collector - Mark Kass, I'm pleased to confirm that as part of the arrangements for the Anniversary Games, there WILL be a designated area for pin traders.

At the moment, we cannot confirm the size or specific location for the area, but here's what we do know...
  • the area will be in the "Spectator Village" (I presume close to the Stadium)
  • at the moment, this area is accessible to Anniversary Games ticket holders only
  • the area MAY be opened up to non-ticket holders - waiting for details
  • accreditation may be required to be a designated trader (like the Coca-Cola centres during the Games), but it looks like anyone can turn up to the tables and trade if they can access the area
  • Pin trading will take place on all 3 days of the Games
I appreciate that there are still some unanswered questions, but if you're interested in taking a table/space/seat, then we're collecting names to register your interest. There may be security checks or forms to fill in, we don't know.

At this stage, it's just a matter of collecting names regardless of whether you have tickets for the Games or not. As soon as we know more, I'll post it here.

If you'd like to be on the list then send your name to

Please also indicate if you already have tickets for any/all of the Anniversary Games days.

Remember, I can't take any credit for arranging this, I'm merely communicating the excellent work done by Mark.

sounds good, I for one would be interested as any chance to trade is always good..... But without any tickets I will probably end up outside looking in trading with all the dodgie dealers from last Summer.

Hopefully most of all the "dodgie dealers" from last summer especially the ones from outside the country will take a pass on the anniversary!
Nothing but "junk" from most of them.
