This Saturday, Oct. 27, join the Strathcona Nordic Ski Club at their annual cross-country gear swap and AGM at Mark Isfeld school in Courtenay.

Everyone is welcome to drop off gently used Nordic gear from 9 to 11:30 a.m. You can purchase a bowl of chili for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. The AGM takes place from 12:15 to 1 p.m. followed by the gear swap from 1 to 3:30 p.m.

The Strathcona Nordics are also holding a free waxing clinic at the swap. You can learn about waxing cross-country skis from national wax guru Dave Battison at 11 a.m. The Nordics Junior Racers can  also help you prepare for the upcoming season. These racers say, “Bring us your classic and skate skis, and we’ll apply a nice coat of glide wax for just $10 a pair!” Bring your skis to the junior racers from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. While you wait for your skis, the young Devo racing team invite you to have a treat at their bake sale.

 

The Nordics say everyone is welcome at their event, people attending the AGM get in first to the ski swap, and all gear must be in reasonably good condition. For more information about the Strathcona Nordics visit their webite StrathconaNordics.com.
