Last call for ski swap item and check collection!

SARS hosted another extremely successful ski swap at the Bonner County Fairgrounds this weekend that saw over 80 volunteers put in two days of work and over 1,500 shoppers get the best deals around on ski and snowboard gear for the upcoming season! A huge thanks to all the dedicated volunteers who made it possible, as well as to those who provided gear and equipment for the sale and everyone who came to shop on Saturday!

For those who consigned items for sale but did not make it to collect their checks or unsold equipment on Saturday evening, the last call for gear or check collection is between 3 and 5 pm on Tuesday, November 12th at SARS World Headquarters at 4107 Samuelson Ave, Bldg F, Sandpoint. Our office is located in the Ponderosa apartment complex directly behind the fairgrounds. 

Any items not collected at this time will be donated to the North Idaho Mountain Sports Education Foundation (NIMSEF) to benefit snowsports education for underprivileged youth. Checks not collected at this time will be considered as a donation to SARS and will go towards keeping our non profit ski racing program affordable to the famines of our athletes.

Ski Swap: November 8th (drop off) and 9th (sale)

The unofficial kickoff of the ski season is happening at the Bonner County Fairgrounds on November 8th and 9th! Lots of SARS families are needed to make this event a success. If you haven’t already, sign up to volunteer here.

Please share our post on Facebook; we want a huge turnout this year so SARS can raise enough money to keep our program affordable for our families!
