The fifth annual Trey Jones Gearhead Expo will be held from 10:00am to 4:00pm on Saturday, March 3, 2012, at the Village Outdoor Shop (3456 Robinhood Road) in Winston-Salem, NC. Adventurers, climbers and Scouts will want to come see the new spring outdoor equipment and apparel from the vendors listed below.
Sponsored by the Village Outdoor Shop, the EXPO will host vendors exhibiting their latest apparel and footwear, sleeping bags, outdoor cooking equipment, camping gear and more. Additionally, information on Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico and on the Boy Scout program will be available.
The Trey Jones Gearhead Expo serves another purpose as well. A percentage of sales at Village Outdoor Shop that day, as well as all monies raised from donations, raffle and silent auction items, will be donated to scholarships to send two scouts to Philmont Scout Ranch.
One of the scholarships is designated to send a local scout from the Old Hickory Council to Philmont Scout Ranch. The second is to fund any scout to participate in the Roving Outdoor Conservation School (ROCS) at Philmont. These scholarships were established in memory of an outstanding young man and Eagle Scout, Trey Jones, who served as Director of ROCS at Philmont. Trey was the ultimate Gearhead.
Participating vendors will include: Mountain Hardwear, Deuter, Icebreaker, Ibex, Cascade Designs, Sierra Designs and more.
