2019 Paddler Workshop and Gear Swap
Saturday April 13, 2019 - 9 AM to 2 PM
We are going to celebrate the one-year anniversary of last April's blizzard with our spring gear swap! We are thrilled to return this spring to the Community Early Learning Center gymnasium in downtown Appleton. Same format as in the past - boats and gear to buy and sell, interesting paddle topics/ presentations to listen to and plenty of time to plan this year's outings with your old (and new) paddle buddies.
Have extra gear or too many boats? Need a new (to you) boat, paddling gear or equipment? Bring your spare gear, extra boats and wish list! Standard gear swap format - we'll provide a space and table for the gear you wish to sell - you set the price and make the deal!
Paddling Presentation Topics
We are planning a handful of topic presentations through the gear swap day. Check back for an updated schedule:

Sampling of Boats Offered for Sale
One of the thrills of swap meets is not knowing what to expect until you show up! BUT - sometimes it's nice to know what to expect, so if you are hoping to sell a boat or other paddling equipment let us know, and we will begin a list below.
- Betsy Bay Sea Kayak- Valkyrie 17’ Inuit design in good condition. Wood/epoxy/fiberglass composite. 20.5” wide, 30-33 lb. Asking $950.
