On Thurs., Feb. 28 at the Estes Valley Public Library, there will be a Tech Swap sponsored by the Estes Park Internet Computer Users Group (EPICUG). All are welcomed to attend. If you have outgrown the need for a piece of technology in your life, bring it to the Swap. If you need a piece of technology, come look for it – if you do not find it, you will definitely find something irresistible.
Set up starts at 7:00 p.m. in the Hondius Room. Tables will be provided and some extension cords and power strips or bring your own. Please do not show up early. Suitable items include: computers, displays, laptops, printers, scanners, other accessories, electronic games, cameras and accessories, telephones, iPods, other mobile devices, cables, tech-related books, not-installed-software, manuals, etc. Only bring items that you are willing to part with.
Round-the-circle 7:15 p.m. will give you an opportunity to describe your offerings to all. You may only offer items for free – no exchange of money. If you hear about an item you want, speak up right there and then.
Arbitration happens if more than one person wants a specific item, they have to describe what they want to do with it, and the group votes.
Socialize 8:00 p.m. after everyone’s chance to show their stuff, roam around, ask questions, enjoy some light snacks, goggle over the Atari, pick up that power adapter you hedged on earlier.
Cleanup and recycle 8:40 p.m. reuse is the intent of this event, but if there’s leftover gear nobody wants, Access Recycling of Loveland has offered to take it all free of charge, even batteries. The only exception is cathode-ray-tubes. If you’d like to recycle a CRT, please contribute $8.
