The ERC will have some rockets and parts for sale. Cash or e-transfers only for the items will be accepted. All proceeds from items sold by the ERC goes towards buying additional club equipment and launch pads.

If you have items you wish to sell or trade, bring them with you. Each person who wishes to sell or trade items is solely responsible for the transactions made. If you have a lot of items to sell or trade, please let us know so that we make sure there are enough tables for everyone.

There will be an auction for a Vintage Model Rocketry Kit at this event as well. You must be in attendance to bid on the rocket kit. Hope to see you all there!
