*** Equipment for Sale? ***

Forgoing a used photographic equipment sale the Moose Jaw Camera Club has decided to provide another option. Lacking a volunteer to coordinate a sales event the executive committee has devised an alternate plan. Create a list of photography related equipment, print several copies and bring these to a meeting. A table will be set up for everyone’s lists for members to check them out during the break.

Download the Photography Equipment for Sale Template here. Good luck!!
