The Strathcona Nordics are holding their annual cross-country ski gear swap and AGM on Saturday, Oct. 29, and this year the swap is taking place at the Comox Rec Centre.
In addition to finding some great used equipment, you can also learn about waxing, get your skis ready for the snow, have a delicious chili lunch, buy some baking, and find out the latest Nordic news.
People can drop off cross-country ski gear (which is in good condition) to sell at the swap from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Between 11 and 11:30 a.m., they can attend a free waxing clinic with coach Dave. A chili lunch will be available for a small fee from 11:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
From 12 to 1 p.m. everyone is welcome attend the Strathcona Nordic Ski Club’s Annual General Meeting (AGM). Note: People attending the AGM will get in first to the swap. Doors will open for the gear swap at 1 p.m. and stay open until 3 p.m. People must pick up their unsold gear by 4 p.m.
Starting at 10 a.m., the Junior Racing team will be waxing skis as a fundraiser, so be sure to bring your skis by the Comox Rec Centre and let the JR team get your skis ready for the first snowfall.
While you wait, you can buy some baking from the Devo team, who are raising funds for their exchange with a ski team from Quebec. For more information visit their website StrathconaNordics.com.
