Tent sales


Best Answer GSSucks , Yesterday, 05:02 PM

No. PASR volunteers. We need to keep costs down to keep the beer that Jeff provides free.

 

I was talking to Jeff the other night, he said that PASR will be supplying all the beer for the lot, for the entire season. He is such a nice young man.

I cant find where Guitar put the other dates for tent sales, so in its own thread it will go.  Blues is the last weekend in October. Some firm dates here, rather than Toasts very broad and unspecific "its in the fall".

I think i will probably go, went last year and they had a lot of stuff, and also a huge crowd.  Get there for first register.  

 

Make sure you get all your powder gear tuned up and stuff.  La nina year.  everybody gets snow!!!!!

Remember, if you drop stuff off at Buckmans and it sells you get store credit, not cash.

Just dropped off some old stuff to consign at the buckmans in Exton (formerly wicks). I’m trying to rack up the gift cards so I can get a pair of new goggles this year and maybe some other odds and ends.

I think thats about true for everywhere.  i think i read at 940 snowboards it was 90% value of what it sold for in credit.

Whitehall Buckmans at 5-ish today was pretty underwhelming. Someone bought my skis, though, so yay!

The skis you were trying to sell here? How much did you get for them? Were there many people there? In the nestors days people would line up for an hour before the tent sale.

Different skis, the Soul Riders sold on Ebay and a pair of ON3P twin tips sold at Buckmans. I went a little bonkers when I first started back skiing and bought a couple things I didn't end up using. Live and learn. I still love demo-ing because I can't get over how amazing skis are now compared to 30 years ago. Don't need to do any more purchasing for a long while, though.

Wow you love gear. I actually haven't bought new skis in four years. I'm long overdue. At one point I had 8 pairs of skis some going back a decade + but when I moved two years ago I threw them all out except my mantras and shirts since I didn't use any of the others anymore.

I had a little financial midlife crisis over the past couple of years. I never did any expensive sports or anything until I started MTB and skiing recently, and I was like "Fuck it, I'm old and don't have much time left to enjoy this, I'm getting nice stuff!!" And so I did. But now I don't need any more stuff, just time to enjoy it.

Gotcha...most of my disposable income goes to ski trips out west, local bars and restaurants. I'm sort of averse to shopping. I had the same gloves for like 7-8 years and finally got a new pair in Jackson hole two years ago which are already falling apart. I've had two pairs of ski pants in the last 11 years..also same helmet last 12 years that every year I swear I'll replace..get a new jacket about every four years, new goggles most years sometimes two pairs..boots about every 3-4'years..socks every year and under armor every year except my one gray upper body one I've had the better part of a decade. Purple polo I wear most ski days as a mid layer still going strong after four years..a little faded and some grease stains.

Nothing spectacular at KOP today either.  Lots and lots of Salamon x drives i think they were from last year.

In buck mans parking lot. Didn't find anything in the tent, but still got 20% off. Got heavy duty 686 jacket and pants, plus burton gloves for under $400. I was expecting to be over $600
