JROC’s yearly Gear Swap is back! Join us April 22nd in Bryan Park. The Gear Swap is a fantastic opportunity to pick up gear for a new hobby or adventure.
It is also a great way to jump-start your spring cleaning! Do you have lightly-used kit laying around your house collecting dust? Turn it into cash and help JROC. Fill out the form linked below, then bring your form and gear to the event at 8:30am. If it sells, JROC will write you a check for the amount it sold for minus 20%, we will also send you a thank you note in the form of a charitable donation letter.
