Winter sports swap coming up

Mark your calendars and start cleaning out the gear shed: The Mount Bachelor Sports Education Foundation’s annual Skyliner’s Winter Sports Swap is set for Oct. 13.

People offer their goods for sale — skis, snowboards, boots, winter clothing — with MBSEF taking a portion of the sale price as commission. This year, it’s 28 percent.

The swap this year is moving to a new location: 149 S.E. Ninth St., near Bend High School. The swap is not accepting straight alpine skis this season.

Gear check-in will be noon to 6 p.m. Oct. 11 and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 12. If the gear sells, MBSEF will send a check with the proceeds within 10 days. Unsold gear must be picked up from 9 a.m. to noon Oct. 14.

The swap itself will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Volunteers are needed.
