    New for this year. If you are a member that would like to participate and find yourself with no corals to share, we have decided to let those members participate in the frag swap after the 3rd round. So, no need to buy frags from your LFS or get them from a fellow member. Given that this is a member swap, we expect plenty of frags to go around.

      • Bonus/Ultra zoanthid list is HERE
      • Bonus/Ultra SPS list is HERE
      • Bonus/Ultra LPS and Soft Cora list is HERE.
    • The bonus rounds are optional and consist of the first picking round of the swap.
    • Once you're done with the bonus round, you continue the regular swap.
    • If you want to do the bonus rounds, you need to bring at least 3 bonus corals or 1 ultra coral from the bonus round list to receive 1 Bonus Round Ticket.
    • You can receive as many Bonus Round Tickets as you want. (Example: Bringing 9 bonus round frags gives you 3 bonus round tickets)is in the process of being updated. Please check back
      • Bonus Corals strains can be repeated only ONCE.
        • Example: 1) Oompa Loompa Zoa, 2) Oompa Loompa Zoa, 3) Oregon Tort = OKAY
      • Ultra Corals strains can be repeated only ONCE.

      Here are the totals from the frag swap, at least those that I know of.
      52 members attended. This includes 2 new members.
      Sales from raffle tickets and t-shirt sales were about $721.00. Total money taken in from the auction is not known, but about $170 was paid with cash. Total dollar amount, not counting for PayPal payments was $891.00.
      @rygh, when you are ready to receive the cash box, let me know.

      This was a very good event with little or no complaints from the members. Also a great venue in spite of the construction and the Hindu Spring event.

      Big thanks to the BOD, and Tim for setting up this swap. Even though I wasn't participating in the swap I still got to enjoy in hanging out, talking with people, having people Respect muh authoritah!, and seeing the super colorful people participating in the Holi festival was super fun. Overall guys, good job, even if I needed a nap when I got home.

      Here's hoping the taco truck made enough money to make it worth being there, after one California burrito I was done for the day.

      Wow, it was so great to see everyone. Sorry for starting/running late. A bit hectic but that’s what keeps it interesting :)

      HUGE thanks to Tim for hosting and putting up with us. And delicious beverages I’d like to add.

      I asked the Taco truck guy and he said they did well, I think the festival helped.

      BAR did well too! We are planning some more shared equipment purchases and interesting social events hopefully including great speakers this year, so your money will be well spent.

      Remember everyone, you need to dip all your new coral. There are lots of good ways to do it including just following the instructions on the bottle of whatever you use, but here’s a good article:

      What a fun swap! Thanks to everyone who worked to plan it out. There certainly were a lot of frags being shared there. (Did anyone else park downwind of people covered in colored powder and get a colorful car? One guy was shaking his shirt as I was putting stuff in my car. He saw it fly all over then tried to wipe it off, which was a mistake. Added to the fun of the day.) Looking forward to the next event.

      Great day for a great swap. Came home with some corals. Thanks BOD and all others that made it happen

      I want to thank the BOD for organizing this event. Thank you Tim for opening your business to our shenanigans and thanks to the community for making it such a great swap. This was definitely one of the best swaps I've been to. I can't believe what was on the tables and how much of it there was. Very well organized and well done.

      Next time, I'll have some stuff to donate in advance (like the "frag life" shirt and some frag racks).

      Thanks again, it was worth the trip and it's nice to put names to faces.

      Thanks Tim for the generous offer to host and the BAR BOD and event organizers. It was nice being back at a BAR event for the first time in a few years.

      My daughter was really happy to pick out a Orange Leptosis and my son picked out a green hairy mushroom - he was worried it was going to get picked :)

      Great to make some new connections too.

      Your daughter also has a good set of lungs as was great at calling out time between rounds... at least I think that was your daughter, if I'm mistaken I apologize. Really saves on my voice in these events, normally I'm very hoarse by the end of the event, and between Jon, Kimmie and her I hardly had to say a thing :D

      I got this beauty. The bottom is fleshy. Can I glue it to a rock? [​IMG]

      Glue won’t stick to the flesh. You’ll want to rubber band it around rock or stick a toothpick through its base then rubber band the toothpick to a rock
