Ski Swap & AGM
Don’t miss the annual SNSC Ski Swap and AGM on Saturday, October 27. It’s a great opportunity to trade in some of your cross-country ski gear, to find some “new” gear for the coming season, and to learn about club developments. Here’s the schedule:
Mark Isfeld Secondary School
1551 Lerwick Rd, Courtenay
- Equipment drop off, 9-11:30am
- Waxing clinic, 11-11:30
- Join us for lunch, 11:30-12:15
- AGM, 12:15-1pm
- Nordic gear swap, 1-3:30
- Unsold gear pick up, 3:30-4:30pm
Don’t miss the Wax-o-rama! You can bring your classic and skate skis to the Junior Race team, and they will prep them for the new ski season. You can enjoy a treat from the Devo Bake Sale table while you wait!
Note: Everyone is welcome! People attending the AGM get in first to the ski swap. All gear must be in reasonably good condition.
Volunteers! Contact Sue to volunteer at the Swap. Tell her when you are available. email@example.com
