8th Annual John McCammon Memorial Ski & Board Swap (Updated May 2018)

Will take place at the Calgary store: Thursday, May 24 to Sunday, May 27, 2016

Find great bargains on used gear, sell off good stuff you no longer use and every item in the store is also on sale at 10 to 60% off!

Here's a chance to sell off the waterskis, wakeboards, wakesurfers, wakeskates, wetsuits, drysuits, vests, and hydrofoils, you no longer use or want to trade up, that are still in good working order. Due to space limitations only these products please. You'll also be supporting KidSport. Remember to bring your old gear back from the lake on the long weekend.

2018 Equipment Drop off times:
Thursday, May 24th: 10 AM to 8 PM  -  Dropping off Thursday allows for the best selling opportunity but for people who can't make it by Thursday, they can also drop off  Friday, May 25th: 10 AM to Noon.

2018 Sale hours - The Swap will run Friday, May 25th through Sunday, the 27th:
Noon to 8 PM Friday
;     10 AM to 5 PM Saturday;      10 AM to 4 PM Sunday

Pick up unsold gear: Sunday from 4 PM to 6 PM
Gear not picked up by 5 PM Saturday, June 2nd, 2018 becomes the property of Shuswap Ski & Board to dispose of or sell off as they deem appropriate, with any procedes going to KidSport.

Here's how it works: Bring things to the Calgary store during the drop off times, shown above, to register your items. We will help establish appropriate selling prices if needed. We will be promoting the event in a wide range of media and will count on all of you to help spread the word. We’ll also do our best to help sell the Swap items. Then, come back Sunday between 4 and 6 PM to see if your gear sold.

Sorry, we will not take phone calls asking if items were sold.

If something was sold we will issue a cheque for 75% of its selling price or an in-store credit for 85% of the selling price, valid for 90 days. In either case 15% of the selling price will be donated to KidSport, to support their efforts to have more kids involved in sports.

For those of you not aware of this, John McCammon, one of Mike’s best friends, and coaching partner of over 20 years, passed away in June of 2010. After the loss of John, his daughter, Maddison (Maddie), a 2 time National Waterski Champion, needed our support to continue her education and training. For the first 5 Swaps the funds we raised were contributed to Maddie's education and training. Maddie has now completed her masters. This year Maddie and Mike discussed the future of this event and agreed that we would continue it in John's name. They also felt John would have loved the idea of the funds going to KidSport, so that is how we're moving forward. Your participation and spreading the word on this Ski & Board Swap will be a great help in our fund raising efforts. When you register your gear, there will also be an option to donate 100% of the proceeds of your gear's sale to KidSport.

Please Remember: We need all unsold items picked up on Sunday evening, since we just don't have spaced to store them. We also want to make sure it's clear that items not picked up by 5PM, Saturday, June 2, 2018, will become the property of Shuswap Ski & Board and either be thrown away or sold with the proceeds going to KidSport.

There is it, a great chance to find homes for gear you no longer use, find bargains on other folks used equipment and support a great cause.

Since we're in the busy time of the year, and I'll probably personally have to answer questions about the Swap, it will be best to e-mail any questions to me. Please include day and evening phone numbers so I'll have the option of calling or e-mailing back as time permits.
