Captions & Kit

Tuesday 22nd August 2023 @ 8:30 pm to 10:00 pm

Yes, this time it’s Captions and Kit!

This Tuesday we have a variation on our ever-popular “Captions and . . . “ themed Club Night.

Not only . . .

. . . has Linda has selected the usual challenging set of photos for you to apply your wits to, and recognition will undoubtedly fall to the wittiest.

. . . but also . . .

. . . a novel “Kit” component of the evening.

This is your opportunity to unload or acquire items of kit, while benefitting our favourite charity, Shelterbox. As Ireen explains below, the original thought was to buy / sell / haggle over outdoor kit of the kind COPSE people often have occasion to use, but there’s no reason to confine ourselves to that – anything you no longer want to give house or shed room to is eligible.

Also, as a seller you decide how to split the spoils with Shelterbox – 100/0, 50/50, 0/100 and points between, the choice is yours.

Here’s the full explanation, from Ireen’s email:

Dear All,

 A suggestion from Keith S, concerning similar experience with another club, will be taken forward for COPSE at our Tuesday, 22nd August evening.  

Our programme had “Captions” listed and this will now become “Captions & Kit”!

The idea is that all Members are invited to bring along items that they wish to part with and that funds raised will be put aside to add to our annual ShelterBox donation.  

Occasionally, some COPSErs do advertise that this or that is available, “if anyone wants it.”  Of course, outdoor activity gear such as walking poles etc. might be well received but other items you would appreciate parting with (thereby gaining more house space!) might also find new homes. 

Some large tables will be available to display things and you can label your contributions with your name and set price – or perhaps bartering might happen.  Anyway, we’ll give it all a try.

The “Captions” part of the evening will still provide its usual chances for the fun of creative thought but we’ll add this opportunity to sell/buy, while people are milling around thinking about the photos on the wall.

 PLEASE ESPECIALLY NOTE THAT ANY ITEMS REMAINING UNSOLD MUST BE TAKEN AWAY AGAIN.  We shall not be adding them to our upstairs storeroom!
