NSCF Junior Nordics is hosting an Ski & Gear Swap this Sunday, October 4, starting at 1 pm. This event will bring together prospective buyers and sellers of XC ski, running, and biking gear. It’s a great opportunity to help out fellow Junior Nordic families, de-clutter your homes and make good use of the opportunity to find next season’s gear! Swap will be held inside the Birch Hill Cross Country Ski Center (upstairs in the Big Red Building) or if it’s a nice day, outside on the stadium grass. Bring your own tarp.
- Each family will get their own table/space to set up their gear.
- Each family does their own selling: you decide your equipment price; you handle your own cash/check/Square credit card sales. (Bring a second family member to shop while you sell!)
- Junior Nordic coaches will be on hand to help pick appropriate gear and will have info sheets on what is appropriate for each skier’s level.
- Start time is 1 PM. To make this first-year event a success, we need to have everyone set up their gear on time.
- End time is 3 PM or earlier. We will wrap up the swap when the gear is gone or by 3 PM, whichever comes first.
- The swap is open to JN families only, not the general public. This is a service event designed to help out ski club families with the challenge of obtaining good gear for a reasonable price. All sales are direct between families.
Appropriate gear to sell:
- Gently used XC ski gear: skis, boots, poles, Junior Nordic clothing, hats, mittens, jackets, ski pants, ski bags, wax equipment, etc. If you have used it for JN activities, chances are another family will use it too!
- Gently used summer gear: bikes, shorts, running shoes, jackets, etc.
