Valley Net Computer Swap -- 24 Sep 05

| Return to Outings | Return to T45 Home | Return to Calendar |

1.0 Overview

Every year, ValleyNet, a local nonprofit Internet Service Provider sponsors a computer swap meet during which people can buy and sell used computers. The purpose of the ValleyNet Swap Meet is to get good used computers and computer equipment out of basements and into the hands of people who can use it to connect to the Internet. This year ValleyNet will also be accepting outdated and broken computers and printers for safe recycling.

Scouts are needed to help with setup and cleanup before and after the swap meet, and with loading and unloading of computers as they are bought, sold or recycled.

We will meet at the Montshire Museum (ValleyNet offices are there) as 9:00 AM on Saturday, and accept whatever assignments ValleyNet may have for us.
