LO Ski and Snowboard Swap and Sale a success

There are at least three ways to measure the success of the 41st Annual Lake Oswego Ski and Snowboard Swap and Sale on Saturday.

Take the amount that was raised: Local winter sports enthusiasts bought or sold athletic gear; and sales totaled $60,000, with $15,000 going to Lake Oswego and Lakeridge high schools’ ski teams. More than $500 came from a raffle for a pair of new skis from Next Adventure. The dollars raised at the event will support coaching, travel expenses and training equipment.

Look at the attendance: Several hundred people went to the big sale.

Or consider the community involvement: 300 volunteer hours went into the event. Doug Fish, who organized the sale, said he had a lot of support.

“There are a lot of parents involved from both schools, so very active participation,” said Fish, parent representative for the Lake Oswego High School ski team.
