Swap Meet Plus

Saturday, May 3, 2014 at HTMC clubhouse

HTMC invites you to a Fun Day on Saturday, May 3, 2014 for a day of learning skills, watching demos, checking out and swapping outdoor gear, and an evening of food and friends, new and old.

From 2pm to 5 pm, we will have a swap meet and demonstrations. Tentative list of demonstrations:

  • Camping StovesJim Yuen will show different stoves and discuss the pluses and minuses.
  • Lightweight BackpackingJeanne Furukawa will show and tell about her lightweight equipment and how she uses it.
  • KnotsBarb Bruno teaches you about knots and how to tie them.
  • GPSSteve Davis talks and demonstrates GPSes and answer your questions.

  • Backpacking and Travel FoodsLarry Oswald & Kris Corliss will bring emergency food storage containers filled with freeze dried food and explain how we rotate the food out for backpacking & camping trips. We just got back from 3 months of RV camping, so we will demonstrate our favorite “travel apps for a phone or tablet”.

  • You may bring equipment for your own mini show-and-tell – Any volunteers? call or email Jim at 536-8180 or jim@htmclub.org

The Swap Meet is restricted to hiking and camping equipment only. No outside commercial vendors allowed.  Support HTMC by donating ten percent (10 %) of your sales proceeds to the club treasury.

At 5 pm we will have a  Pot Luck Dinner.  Attendees are encouraged to bring a dish to share, or you may contribute $10.00 to the pot to defray the cost of the food. Guests pay $3 clubhouse use fee.  RSVP via email Entertainment@htmclub.org .

At 7 pm  Richard Sullivan will present a Slide Show on Ramblings in a VW Westfalia Camper.

As in past years, we hope you will enjoy the company for friends and trail companions, both old and new, as we look forward to a summer of outdoor adventure.
