The Bethel Outing Club Ski & Snowboard Sale happens the last weekend in October at the Gould Academy Field House, 74 Church Street in Bethel--Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.  The BOC Ski Sale has provided a community service for 44 years by bringing new and used equipment from major ski & snowboard shops and local and visiting skiers/snowboarders to one location, with all proceeds benefiting youth outdoor programming that is organized/supported by the Bethel Outing Club. The club keeps 20% of the sale price for each item that you sell and you get the rest. Donations of equipment are also welcome and support BOC's non-profit mission. Any alpine gear that is donated to the sale and is not sold will be available to kids who have received a free ski pass to Sunday River Resort through the River Fund Maine ski scholarship program or to Mt. Abram Ski & Bike Resort through the efforts of Friends of Mt. Abram. We will also get cross-country ski gear to kids who are participating on local school teams or in the Maine West Project Play/MKA program. We are extremely happy to support these efforts. 

Have a couple of hours to volunteer?  We have volunteer opportunities on Thursday, Oct 24th, Friday, Oct 25th and Saturday, Oct 26th. (Signup link coming later) to sign up to help! We appreciate as many hands as possible! Email Colleen Raymond or phone her at 603-566-7277, if you have any questions.
