Gear Swap, Barter or Buy

Thanks to Bill Smith we have a fantastic place to have our event! We have access to a gorgeous grass area with large shade trees. We can not park in the Centers parking lot but there is plenty of parking on surrounding streets. I will be there direction traffic. Bring plenty of cash and change. Can't wait to see all the gear. I look forward to seeing all of you.

    Congratulations to Greg Bauch! He won the raffle and received a Mt Bachelor season pass for 2015! Thanks to everyone that attended and for the no shows just a reminder once you have 4 no shows you are no longer a member of the group. So next time you can't make it please change your RSVP's!

      Hi Barb, I called Good Life and a few other brewery's but they all charge a fee. I talked to the Parks and Rec today and they are calling me back tomorrow to see about having it at a park in Bend. I have a camp ground in mind up where I live but I live up by Fall River and I would like to have it in Bend. If you can help and have other options that would be great! Thank you so much for offering your time. I really appreciate it.

    What kind of gear do you swap?

      All outdoor gear! You name it. Someone either has it or wants it or wants t sell it.

  • Robert S.

    Great idea Barb! I'll vote for the Good Life!

    Great Idea. I don't have a lot of gear to get rid of, but I do need to find a good used 65L Woman's backpack. See you there.

    You might inquire at Good Life Brewery about using the outdoor area they have on the east side of their building. It wouldn't require a permit and has picnic-style tables and benches that could double as display tables for our goods. Anything that brings people to their location is good for them. If it is a Meet&Greet/Gear Swap it would be more of a social event, anyway. There's probably a few members that would take advantage of the food and liquid refreshments that Good Life offers and we might make it worth it for allowing us to use that area. Where you might run into trouble is if you place ads opening it up to the general public or if you implied that we were selling items to the general public. That sounds like something that would require a permit.

    Maybe a little later in this year would work better. Many are still using their Winter gear but may have thoughts of upgrading at end of season. Maybe it's a little early for those who enjoy being out in the warmer Sring and Summer activities?

    February 25, 2014

  • Karen J

    Yes, I would like to see this gear swap happen with greater attendance, perhaps set the date for April?
    In the meantime, we can collect our pile of gear for the sale.

    February 25, 2014

  • Barb C.

    I'm ready now but am willing to wait. Maybe it could be combined with a larger Meet and Greet a little later in the Spring when the weather is nicer. It could be out of doors and it might be a good time to ask for donations to keep the Meetup funded.

    I need some feed back! I am thinking we should give this event some more time so we can get more people to attend. More people more gear! I can place some adds and hang up some flyers. What do you all think?

    February 24, 2014

  • Martina M.

    Even if I won't find new gear , I would love to meet you all. Great idea! Keep me in the know!

    I went a head and put in a date and time. This can change because of the location. When it is a set deal I will be placing a few adds to advertise it locally.
