The Gentlemen’s Leisure Club of Golden is helping locals prepare for the snow. The men will be holding a ski swap at the Spirit Square on Nov. 19 from noon to 5 p.m.

The GLCG is a new local not-for-profit group geared towards putting on great events for the community and helping children with financial difficulties get involved in sports. The group consists of young men who love the community and the sporting opportunities that surround it. The GLCG currently has two events on the go, the Second Annual Moustache Competition and the ski swap.

A ski swap allows people to buy and sell used ski gear. This gear can include anything needed for a day on the hill.

“People can drop off their ski gear on Friday night, Nov. 18, at 420 Riverglen Dr. From 6  to 8 p.m.” Brian Coles, GLCG member, said. Gear can also be dropped off at the Spirit Square from 9 to 11 a.m. on the day of the event.

“It costs $2 per item to enter gear and there is no commission taken from the sale.”

During the ski swap, businesses will have booths set up displaying their products and brands. Entrance into the swap is by donation.

“People have to pick up their gear that is not sold on Saturday, Nov. 19 from 5 to 6 p.m.” During this time, cash from the sales of your goods must also be picked up.

The GLCGs second event is the moustache competition. This competition is dedicated to men saving money on raisers for the month and raising funds and awareness for the fight against prostate cancer. Anyone who wishes to join this fight can donate or find pledge sheets at the Crooked Antler, Plane Wayne & Jane, DARKSIDE and the Riverhouse.

For more information about the GLCG and their events, visit their facebook page at The Gentlemen’s Leisure Club of Golden.

 

Don’t forget to come out on Nov. 19 from noon to 5 p.m. to get the gear you need for the ski season.
