Chattanooga OUTDOORS Show is NOT the Gear Swap!

Hey!  There has been some confusion with the new Outdoors Show coming to Camp Jordan.  THAT will be a cool event with lots of commercial vendors of outdoor related stuff. According to their email, they will have exhibitors from camping, hunting, ATV’s, rock climbing, kayaking, and just about everything!  Check out ChattanoogaOutdoorsShow.com and go visit Camp Jordan May 8,9, & 10!

As for the GEAR SWAP, it’s personal folks and businesses who have gear to swap, sell, trade, etc.  Rock/Creek will be there….so will BOLD/GOLD from the YMCA…..and many folks who are cleaning out closets and garages so they can get more fun gear!!  The SWAP is on April 18th at the Gear Closet this year….and followed by a Pint Night to support outdoor programs at Red Bank Elementary School!!

Come join us on the 18th of April from 10 to 4….and beyond!!
