      What about that guy Tim (I think that’s his name) that has all those acros and comes to the Bay Area periodically? Do you think he’d be interested?
    2. Bruce Spiegelman

      Tim Plaza. Doubt he'd be interested, but we can ask.
    3. Bruce Spiegelman

      The other question with sellers there is do we allow "frag swap packs" to be sold? There's some members against this (@Coral reefer ) in theory.
    4. tankguy
      I like Your Reef in Roseville
    5. Coral reefer

      I am against it. I much prefer people to bring their own captivelt propagated corals. I feel adamant about this for the members swap, but only strongly about it for the regional swap.

      Probably not good timing for Jon at Your Reef. He had a large set-up at Macna and was already worried about not having enough stock for ReP in early October. Plus he's probably still hung over from Vegas.
    7. sfsuphysics
      Wonder how he did at MACNA, I did a double take when I saw his booth, not only that it was a double wide booth area.
    8. Bruce Spiegelman
      Bruce Spiegelman
      I wondered that too. Not the size so much, but how many people would buy mass frags at buy 9 get 6 free, etc to take home long distance.
    9. sfsuphysics
      Well it's a good market to have, not everyone can have <insert farmer name> <insert ironic/hipster common name> Acro for sale where if sell a handful of frags your booth is paid for. Besides at $1400 for the smallest/cheapest boost size you need to sell a lot of product to make it worth it, ignoring of course the advertising that it gives your company where now people might be "heck I'll order from them now"
    10. tankguy
      Hopefully they did well down there. I just liked them because they were very easy to deal with and overall just nice people. I’m sure whoever we get will be good enough. I do like the idea of getting our newer sponsor a chance to come up
    11. Apon
      how about jestersix?
    12. Apon
      also most vendors would probably want to know how many people we are expecting at the swap. Do we have many people paying yet? probably need to post on RC and on Mars and others clubs?
    13. Wlachnit
      Posted on RC Bay Area and MARS last week. I've been telling vendors ~60 people...given that we had ~50 at our Member swap earlier this year.

      Talked to Tim Plaza today. He's to lazy to do set-ups. :)
      Shall I talk to others?
    15. Coral reefer
      Coral reefer
      I'd say sure. Why not?
    16. Bruce Spiegelman
      Bruce Spiegelman
      I never want to step on anyone's toes.
    17. Wlachnit
      That would be great. I have already reached out to Ed at Clearwater (still waitin to hear back), Darwin at Legendary (happy to do it), and Jon at YourReef (can't do it due to bandwidth right now).
    18. Wlachnit
      I also expected Tim to say no. It's too bad. He's got great corals and I've had good success with the frags I've gotten from him. And, it seems that everytime he swings by for the last few months...I'm always outa town :(
    19. Bruce Spiegelman
      Bruce Spiegelman
      I'm grabbing a frag or two from him on Friday. If you can't meet up with him I can grab yours.

      Hey Bruce, Is Alexander Whedbee with Coralicous at the last coral farmer event?
