Organizer/Author
Come to the Santa Cruz Freecycle Free-For-All weekend. Bring something, get something for free. And keep shit out of the landfill.

Hi all.
We are planning a Free-for-All.

The idea behind this is that many don't want to bother with offering items and going through the responses, then dealing with no-shows... Also, they don't want to have a garage sale or don't have enough to make it worthwhile. So, you can get rid of the stuff at the Santa Cruz County Free-for-All.

Where: Aptos Academy - 1940 Bonita Drive Aptos, Calif. 95003
Take the San Andreas exit off 1 and make a right onto San Andreas - toward the ocean and Seascape. It's the first right after that.
When: Feb 2nd and 3rd, 2008
Time: 10am - 3pm

Note that there are 2 playgrounds there at the school for the kids to play at, so you can bring your kids.

Note also that items will arrive all day long. This means that being an early bird has no benefit. Staying all day does have a benefit as you can see
things brought in all day long.

Rules:
1. Bring something, take something away.
All you HAVE to bring is your friendly self, good attitude, an affinity for Freecycle, and maybe something to place items in that you want. Like a box or a bag. But do look around your house or apartment and see what you aren't using and don't need. Bring that along. Someone will be very happy you did.

If you get something at the Free-for-All, you will want to take it to your car or mark it in some way to make sure that no one else takes it. Since everything is free, people will not know it has been claimed already.

2. If you bring something that is not taken, you MUST take it away with you. We are not the dump. We will happily give you our cell number and you can call at the end to see if you should pick up your items. We should be able to keep things there overnight, so leave off sat morning and pick up sun night.

You do not have to get there at 10 or leave at 3.
You may arrive any time you wish and leave whenever you wish.
We just ask that you take your items with you when you do leave.

3. The person offering an item may chose whomever they want to receive it. They do not have to give it to the first person asking for it. That can be disappointing, but remember your manners.

You may invite friends, charities, whoever you want.
You are welcome to tell all you want about this event. The last ones went so well that I'm not worried about this one.
So, time to clean out your basement, spare room, garage, whatever you want.

If there is rain in the forecast, we will still have it, just in the hall and auditorium.

If you would like to volunteer for anything, just email us (the Santa Cruz and SLV moderators) at:
