Hockey swap for used equipment

The 2011 West Kelowna Hockey Swap will take place this Sunday, Sept. 11, from 9 a.m. to noon, in the Mount Boucherie Recreation Centre parking lot.

The 2011 West Kelowna Hockey Swap will take place this Sunday, Sept. 11, from 9 a.m. to noon, in the Mount Boucherie Recreation Centre parking lot.

A portion of the proceeds from this year’s sales will support West Kelowna Kid Sport, a program that provides financial support to children who can’t afford to play organized sports.

Those contributing used equipment, in good condition, will receive 80 per cent of the proceeds from each item sold.

The other 20 per cent will go to the West Kelowna Kids Sport fund, to provide grants of between $75 and $300 to Westside kids, from 6 to 18 years old.

Grants are used to cover fees charged by sporting organizations that are members of Sport B.C.

Hockey parents are asked to bring their children’s equipment to the District of West Kelowna Recreation and Culture portable at the Mount Boucherie Recreation Centre, during the following times:

• Now until Friday, Sept. 9, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

• Thursday, Sept. 8 from 5 to 6:30 p.m.

Each person who brings equipment to sell will be given a consignment number, which will identify the equipment they contributed to the swap.

Owners are asked to return after the swap, at 2 p.m., and produce their consignment number to receive their money for items sold.

All unsold items must also be collected at that time.

The District of West Kelowna is proud to partner with Westside Warriors Minor Hockey to host the 2011 West Kelowna Hockey Swap.

For more information, contact the District of West Kelowna’s Recreation and Culture Department at 778-797-8800.
