Description:

The VOC Gearswap is an outdoor gear buy and sell event. If you have some extra gear that you no longer need, come sell it. If you are looking to buy used/new outdoor gear for reasonable prices, come on out. Actual swapping of gear is encouraged as well. There will also be a "free table" - if you have items that could still be used by others but are not fit for selling, or you'd just like to give them away, please consider putting them in the free pile (no junk please).

Although the focus is on outdoor gear, other gear that has a loose connection to the outdoors will be accepted too (downhill/snowboard gear, for example). This event is open to non-members as well, and is absolutely free - bring your friends!

At 6:45, during the gear swap, we will have a short presentation by Jacob McGill. Jacob is in the developmental phase of a charitable project that is designed to serve the portion of hikers who clean up as they go. He is working with local garment manutfacturers to cull some of the 20-30% waste that they produce when making our beloved goretex coats, and turn it into re-useable trash bags. The bags are currently in beta and he will soon have units that need testing!

 

If you are interest in hearing about this project and potentially helping out with testing please join us at 6:45 in Neville Scarfe room 209 (during the gear swap).

Time: 6pm-7:30pm
Location: Neville Scarfe room 209
