Alberni Outpost Gear Swap

On Sunday, March 2, 2008, the Alberni Outpost at the Country Club Centre, #3 — 3200 Island Highway North, Nanaimo, is holding a Gear Swap Event from 11 am to 4 pm. For a $10 fee, anyone can buy table space to sell used outdoor equipment (clothing, camping items, etc.) to others who may need or want to use it. There will be space for items as large as kayaks, and as small as you can imagine.

Don't miss this chance to get rid of some of your old gear, and possibly buy some new stuff at a deep discount. Best of all, the Alberni Outpost will be donating 100 percent of the $10 fees to the Save Mount Benson Campaign as a donation. If you have things to sell, you should register with the Alberni Outpost by calling Richard or Bev at (250) 760-0044. Otherwise, just drop by on March 2 for some great deals.

The Mount Benson fundraising campaign has now passed the $400,000 mark with only $75,000 to go before the February 27, 2008, deadline. If you have been thinking of making a donation, please call the Nanaimo and Area Land Trust at (250) 714-1990 to find out how you can help NALT reach their goal.
