KISS YOUR OLD gear good-bye at the Strathcona Nordics' swap and find deals on new gear there.

Strathcona Nordics holding gear swap

Oct. 26 event at Queneesh Elementary also includes AGM

The Strathcona Nordics Ski Club is holding their annual Nordic Gear Swap and AGM on Saturday, Oct. 26 at Queneesh Elementary School in Courtenay.

At the swap, you can sell equipment that you aren’t using and look for some great deals on equipment that you need. You can also join them for their AGM and catch up on the latest cross-country ski news for Vancouver Island.

The schedule for Oct. 26 is: 9:30–11:30 Cross-country ski equipment drop off; 11–11:30 Waxing clinic with coach Dave; 11:30–12:15 Chili lunch; 12:15–1 AGM; 1–3 Cross-country ski gear swap; and 3–3:30 Gear (unsold) pick up.

At the event, you can also find the Junior Racing team outside by the red Strathcona Nordics tent. They are holding a Wax-o-rama, where you can bring them your classic and skate skis, and for $10, they’ll prep your skis for the new season with a fresh coat of glide wax.

The Strathcona Nordics note they are selling cross-country ski gear and accessories only: No alpine gear and all gear must be in reasonably good condition. Additionally, people attending the AGM get in first to the ski swap and everyone is welcome to attend.

The Strathcona Nordics are Vancouver Island’s cross-country ski club. They have recreational and racing programs for children, youth, and adults. Register before Nov. 30 for early bird prices. To learn more about the club, see info@StrathconaNordics.com.
