NEWP Paddler Gear Swap

http://www.wisconsinpaddlers.org/activities/2014boatworkshopgearswap *Please visit this page for accurate times/location*
Sponsored by NEWP - they offer skills workshops of various kayaking topics, usually lasting about an hour each. Need to buy or sell kayak gear at a reasonable price - this would be a decent place to look - better than craigslist. Some of the items will be bran new, otherwise used items from other yakkers. In the past, there has been various yaks - from white water to tandem yaks sold. Rub elbows with fellow paddlers, learn a few things, and hangout in a basement for a few hours.
