      Which other clubs are participating?
    7. Enderturtle
      Wont know until the event comes closer.

      Last year we had clubs from Redding (5 hour drive), sacramento (2 hour drive), stockton (2 hour drive) and fresno (4 hour drive) come allllll the way up here to swap frags with us. Pretty damn impressive in my opinion.

      Man, I'm just a few miles inside the 50 mile limit to get the bonus raffle.
    9. Vhuang168
      Lol wonder if I'm outside it!

      Edit: Google says 20miles to chabot. :(
    10. Enderturtle
      :) the 50 mile raffle is really meant to encourage people outside the bay area to come swap.

      I'm going to try and frag my Cornbread Flaming Bugatti Chalice. Should have 2 eyes. Maybe a few other nice sps and some zoas. Red Hornets, maybe some purples. Rainbow rhino if I can. Pink zippers, Blondies etc. some montis too.

      Sorry we didn't get the official date nailed down sooner. Hope you can make both swaps next year!

      Newbie question - I do not have frags yet, as I am totally new to the hobby. Do people sell/give away frags at this event, and are there other reasons to come to a frag swap, other than to meet like-minded hobbyists in the area?

    16. roostertech
      Last time, I think CRC sold frag pack of 3. I probably will be attending to hang out. I don't even have a reef tank yet :p

    17. Enderturtle
      Its worth coming even if youre a newby. Honestly this is the event i care most about/funnest event out of all our club events throughout the year. I joined the BOD because I wanted a better frag swap.

      Whats at this frag swap?
      • Coral frags
      • Raffle prizes

      Hey yes I agree it's 100% worth coming. It's really fun and a great easy to meet people in the hobby make friends and get a lot of info. And Iv always come home with more then 3 frags. Frag swaps are great just beware of pests that may come on the frag. I'm trying to go to the swag as well and I'll donate u three frags so u can participate. I need to start geting ride of stuff I don't care for. I'm kind of a coral hoarder my girlfriend says it's a problem.

      Definitely going to try to go to this, baby is a little less cranky... well except when he's really tired. So hopefully he come with and enjoy the day with the BAR members, or mom can stay at home. Although it means for a second straight frag swap I won't be on frag patrol :( (I feel like I lost my job!)

      Don't have much anymore, but a few zoanthids/palys and some rhodactis
