We have finalized a date of when we will start the TTN Ambassador Decal Program.
It will be October 15th and start at 10am. There will be double the availability from last year. That's 2x last year. Dos lotso. Zwei Mal den Raum. So no need to camp out :)
I know you are wondering, "So I know when and what time this thing will start, there's twice the amount of space, there's gonna be a gear swap, but where will I go to sign up already and get one of these babies slapped on my ride?".
Wonder no longer. We will announce "the where" one week before October 15th - the day of the event. So if you have not done so already make sure you Like us here, Friend us here, Follow us here and join our text messaging service here. And if that's not enough social media bombardment you could always subscribe to our YouTube Channel . . . here. This way you are sure to be in the know as to where to go and join the program.
For all of you that want to swap some gear on Saturday the 15th be sure to arrive at least an hour early (9am) to showcase your gear. You can bring your own table, tent, ground cloth, Euro Bungee (ok, not really) or if you don't want to mess with all that, tables will be available to rent for a very reasonable rate. However way you choose to get your gear into the hands that need it, you can be confident that his is gonna be a real swap with everyday non-commercial people exchanging goods like the good 'ol days.
On a side note, we have been getting many questions about the program and gear swap. All we can say is that all your questions will get answered at the event on 15th. But there are a few we can answer right here.
Why do a gear swap? Isn't there one already?
Yes, there is already a ski swap but if you have recently attended the swap in the past you will notice that it has become more of a commercial smorgasbord of selling goods and much less of a swap between everyday people and their gear. Because we love gear and especially the use of gear and because we are already having the TTN Ambassador Decal Program we thought . . . "Hmm, we have some gear left over from years past that does no good in storage and should be put in the hands of those who love gear. How can we do this?" Then we thought . . . "We have friends that have gear laying around too, why not provide a venue for them to sell their gear without the complications of other swaps and the competition of commercial vendors." That's when it hit us. Why not have a gear / ski swap at the same time as the TTN Ambassador Decal program? You guys are already here waiting to get signed up why not offer something to do in the meantime while you all wait.
That's when the Gear swap was born. Let's give back to the community. Let's bring back the swap of ol'. So, naturally, the next big question was where will we have this thing. I mean we gotta have room for you to swap your gear and sign-up for the TTN Ambassador Decal Program. If you were here last year you experienced first hand the mass turn out and how quickly space filled up. This year we will have more room and better organization.
So not only will the TTN Ambassador Decal program be double delicious, there will be double the room, with double the coolness and as always double the fun! Well, that's the plan at least :)
Don't wait. Get connected and be in the Know of where it will all go down!
