1st Annual Used Outdoor-Gear Fair Minneapolis

Date: Jan 31, 2009
Setup: 4pm onwards bring your gear (please bring blanket to protect the tables)
Sale: 5pm-7pm
Potluck: 7pm onwards
On to the pub: 9pm (i.e. that’s when we kick you out :-)
Location: NEC, 724 Lowry Ave NE, Minneapolis, MN 55413

Let’s get together to swap, buy and sell our used gear!

Let’s get together to swap stories, talk stoke and exchange e-mail addresses!

Bring your used gear and or cash to buy used gear from others and a dish to pass for the potluck after the sale.

The vision is, that everybody who has outdoor gear for sale or wants to buy some has ONE place to go to sell and buy, versus having to peruse the boards and then travel all over the place to have a look etc. And since it's fun to meet a lot of folks who are passionate about doing outdoorsy things, there's a potluck after the sale to have a chance to socialize and talk stoke.

There's quite a bit of outdoor gear that is useful for a wide range of sports, like functional wear, etc. Also, maybe a chance to think of adding a new activity, talk to people who do it and pick up some gear to get started as well as find people to get started with.

Invited are a variety of outdoor clubs, which do things like kayaking and canoeing as well as skiing, snow shoeing, skating, rollerblading, hiking, back-packing, climbing, etc. and any other individuals who are interested, but don't belong to any of the clubs, so feel free to spread the word to your friends!

Please check the website for more info and updates as well as to ask questions you may have about this event.

NOTE: You will be in charge of looking after your own goods! We will not be liable for any losses. So I suggest you partner up with some buddies for the sale so you can watch each other’s merchandize, while one of you is getting a drink, checking out the sale for themselves or going to the bathroom. Also, bring change, so you don’t miss out on a sale, just because you couldn’t figure out the money!

Address questions to: Rosie D, at the above website

Address your thanks to: Kathi L, without her we wouldn’t have a great place for the event, by organizing a community dinner so that we get the place for free!
