Geek Swap


What and When:

On Saturday, August 2nd, 2003, LUGOD will be holding its first-ever "Geek Swap" fundraiser swap meet!

The swap meet will begin at 10am and last until (TBD).

The "official" purpose of the swap meet is to raise money for LUGOD! (We're in the process of purchasing a video projector for our meetings, and will completely drain our bank account in the process.)

The real reason is to have a social gathering, clean out our closets, and see what kind of neat and bizarre hardware other people have been hording.

How to Attend - As a Buyer

Just show up and browse (and, hopefully, buy)! With regards to fundraising for LUGOD, at this point, we're leaving it up to the sellers. LUGOD is simply organizing; volunteers are offering space and supplies to run the show; sellers sell things, and then donate what they want to us.

How to Attend - As a Seller

Contact Bill Kendrick. Please give him the following information:

  • What hours you can attend
  • What items you are bringing
  • How much (percentage) of your sales you're interested in donating to LUGOD
  • Were you planning on staying the whole time? Or only coming to drop off in the morning, and pick up any leftovers in the afternoon?
