What is a gear swap?

On April 28th, OAC will be having our spring gear swap, but some of you might be wondering what exactly a gear swap is. Simply put, a gear swap is a great way to get rid of unused gear or pick up some slightly used gear for cheap. Think of a gear swap as an outdoor-themed garage sale with multiple people bringing items to sell. The rules are simple and anyone can join. If you have equipment you want to get rid of, bring it with you and you can either sell it, trade it with other participants for equipment you do want, or donate it. If you’re looking for some new cheap equipment, come look at what others are looking to get rid of. More than just an exchange of goods, a gear swap is also a great way to meet other outdoor enthusiasts. Come socialize with other outdoor-minded people, learn about an activity you’ve been interested in from someone who has experience with it, find a new hiking buddy, and meet the OAC board and learn more about our goals! Come stop by The Venue on April 28th, from 1-4pm and join in our gathering of outdoorsmanship.  Stay tuned in at the event page on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/events/1625817184181828/
