Sports Swap Saturday

The San Juan Outdoor Club will hold its annual Ski and Sports Swap from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 25, at the fairgrounds Exhibit Hall on U.S. 84.

Anyone wishing to sell items can bring skis, boots, poles, outdoor clothing and other outdoor sporting goods (no exercise equipment please) to the fairgrounds on Friday, Oct. 24, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. or Saturday morning from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m.

All items are sold by the SJOC for a 17-percent commission used by the club to support the Swap, with extra funds going for college scholarships for local seniors and our local Search and Rescue organization.

There will be outdoor and sports bargains galore offered by individuals and by various area businesses. Participating Pagosa businesses include Aspen Haus Ski Center, Humane Society Thrift Store, Pagosa Ski Rentals, Pedal and Powder, RM Gear, and Switchback Mountain Gear. Those from Durango are John Dunn Sports, Inferno Snowboards, and Second Avenue Sports. One Aztec, N.M .store, New Mexico Board and Ski, is participating again.

Items brought to sell, but not sold, should be picked up between 1-2 p.m. after the Swap. Items not sold and not picked up will be donated to the Humane Society Thrift Store where proceeds benefit homeless dogs and cats.

The event will also feature a sale of baked goods prepared by SJOC members.
