Snow Show 2012 goes this Sunday

Good bargains on ski and snowboard gear at Queneesh Elementary School

THERE WILL BE lots of good bargains at Sunday's Snow Show 20112.

Snow Show 2012, Vancouver Island’s largest new and used ski, board and snow sport gear sale, goes this weekend.

“It’s hard to believe the fabulous fall weather is drawing to a close and that snow will soon be falling on local hills,” a spokesperson for the event said. “Mark Sunday, Nov. 4 on your calendar for this one-day sale which has been repeated each year for over 35 years. This is a great opportunity for individuals and families to purchase new and used gear at significant savings.”

The 15 percent commission charged to individuals and other vendors who consign their equipment to this sale is shared by community service groups and youth winter sports teams. The event is hosted by the Comox Valley Ground Search and Rescue Association, the 100-member strong Volunteer Ski Patrol Association, the Adaptive Snowsports Association and the Mt. Washington Ski Club.

The nominal sales commission is an important fundraiser for each of these non-profit groups.

Items for the sale may be brought to Queneesh School (2345 Mission Rd.) in Courtenay on either Nov. 3 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. or on Nov. 4 between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. only. The sale on Sunday runs from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.  Only approved gear will be accepted for consignment.

Admission is $2 per person or $5 per family.  A fee of $1 is charged for each item placed in the sale and a 15 per cent commission is levied for goods sold.  For more information contact sale manager Mel Rogers at 250-331-1990.
