Bring and Buy

Illustrious Member

Just been talking to Kermit about personal stock levels and we thought that the potential of a bring and buy, oldskool multicoloured swapshop might be a good idea?

If fellow CiA members were interested we could use this thread as a "I'll be bringing/wishing to offload the following ..." kit list.

If you manage to sell, manage to swap or have to bring back home the CiA Organisation is not held responsible for sales/swaps.

Book in for the event before going to bring and buy. Sale/swap times will be 09:00-11:00 Saturday morning and after stand down on Saturday evening.

If you want any item that members list please post interest.

PM'd Guy!

“I wanted to come to the Volga at a specific location at a specific city. By chance it carries the name of Stalin himself. So don’t think I marched there for this reason – it could carry another name – but because there is a very important goal... this goal I wanted to take – and you know – we are very modest, we have it already."
Adolf Hitler, November 1942

"Comrades, Red Army men, commanders and political workers, men and women guerrillas! It is on your perseverance, staunchness, fighting skill and readiness to discharge your duty to the country that the defeat of the German-fascist army and the liberation of the Soviet land from the Hitlerite invaders depend! We can and must clear the Soviet land of Hitlerite vermin."
Joseph Stalin, November 1942

Hi Fellas,

As some of you know, I have agreed to purchase items from you and already have several of your mobile numbers.

I can be there on the Saturday morning and understand that the bring and buy times are 09:00 - 11:00.

I have already PM'd most of you with my mobile and will obviously try and seek you all out, but can Lardassmonkey, Seidler and Kermit PM their mobile numbers to me please.

Have a safe journey to Rivock Edge.

BTW Ricock Edge dates back to Neolithic times and their are several cup and ring marked stones on the top plateau for those who fancy a walk up there....The views are splendid.
