It may not feel like it outside... but it's that time of year again!
The annual Swap Meet is an event for both new and experienced riders to get together to buy, trade and sell their skate/longboard gear. It is a great place for beginners to pick up some gently used safety gear, or for the experienced rider who wants to add something a little different to their quiver.
The Roarockit Team is always proud to host this event at our dedicated teaching facility (880 Millwood Rd. Toronto, ON) and we hope that it is the biggest and best one to date. As part of our efforts to make this event a memorable one, we are looking at ways to include more sponsors, more prizes and more stoke than ever!
The event will take place from Noon-4pm on Sunday, March 30th. If you want to come early to grab a spot and set up, we would suggest 11:30 earliest.
THIS IS A RAIN, SHINE OR POLAR VORTEX ICE STORM EVENT!
Here's a few things to look forward to:
We will be setting up as many tables, chairs, benches and designated areas for people to set up shop as possible! As always you can claim your space on a FIRST COME FIRST SERVED basis. If you're not familiar with the area, it is a corner lot in a residential neighbourhood and space is at a premium. Because of this, we also ask that you be respectful to the surrounding houses and business... we usually do a pretty good job of this, so let's set a good example for the newbies :)
It's FREE! Free to attend, lots of free draws to enter, free table space, even FREE BBQ! You could potentially come to Swap with no money and have a great time.
#SWAP7 – Last year we introduced the SWAP6 hashtag, and it proved to be a great place to post what you are bringing and see what people have in store for the event.
For anyone who has a Twitter or Instagram profile, make sure you check #SWAP7 for promotions and giveaways from Roarockit and other participating companies.
PLUS! Don't forget the - POST. SWAP. POOP.
Once again, everyone's favourite skate team/art collective the Skate Invaders will be hosting a post Swap shred at the Poop Chute. If you don't know where it is...well, come to the Swap Meet and follow everyone there after!
Hope to see you all there :)
