I realize this is spamy but tough...
The 2014 Calgary Ski Sale starts this week. It's an annual large new/used ski/board/xcountry equipment sale that's 100% run by a couple of volunteer groups. (Canadian Ski Patrol, and the Calgary Ski Club) All of this is at the Max Bell Arena.
The commission from this sale goes to run our club for the next year!
Got used gear to sell?
This Wednesday and Thursday, from 5:30 pm to 10:00 pm is public consignment. Check the website for details.
Want to buy new and used gear?
Sale starts Friday evening, and runs through Sunday afternoon. Deals can be had Sunday on items that are marked for 50% off Sunday (consignors option).
* Note: If you want first dibs on used gear, see below
Want to help? We're always looking for volunteers...
Like I said, this is an event run by volunteer organizations, to help pay for our volunteer organizations. If a ski patroller has ever helped you, and you wanted to thank them, taking a 4 hour shift at this would be a great way to do it.
ALSO: Volunteers get first crack at the used gear before the sale opens to the public!
There are still lots of slots open, everything from sales (helping people pick gear), to labour, to security, to... you name it. We need help on various shifts from Wednesday to Sunday. My wife and I are there all day Saturday!
All the details are on the site, but if you want any info you could ask me here too.
Hope to see people there!
