Gear Swap

Gear Swap:
There will be a big gear swap event at the Far North Climbing Gym (10th and K, Arcata) on Dec 10-11 from 5pm-10pm.  Entrance to the event is free with a beverage purchase from the Ski Lounge inside the gym.  This gear swap is for the purchase, sale and exchange of any kind of outdoor gear and clothing.  There will be booths from vendors like Adventures Edge there.
If you want to sell gear, it costs $5 to set up your own selling space, or you can sell on consignment for a 20% commission.  Contact me for more details.  I am running the consignment sales.

Due to a staffing change at the Arcata Exchange, the month of August was double booked for photos.  We have been moved to September for displaying our underwater photos.   The date to hang the photos has not yet been set.  Frank will let us know as soon as he gets a date and time.

Dive Medicine

Coming up at the August 10th Humboldt Skindivers Meeting:

“Dive Medicine”

This month’s presentation, “Dive Medicine”, will be by HSD member Mary VanCott, who has worked in the medical field for over 25 years. You won’t want to miss this detailed and fascinating overview of the effects of diving on the human body. It will be a review of things you already know, plus a few things you perhaps haven’t thought of! No matter what, it’s bound to spark a lively discussion on our favorite sport – see you there!
