    It was fun - Good number of people - not too few/many and good variety of corals

    Who snagged the purple haze monti? Care to cut me a smidgen? Yes, smidgen :D

    Yeah, there were a good amount of people, the groups were not that large (which is what caused a few of problems in the regional swap). Hell I was quite useless as a swap helper, other than reminding people how much time left and the number of frags they got I didn't need to get people out of the picking area (except for that Rich guy who was taking all the corals he could find!!!) but that was fine as it gave me a chance to chat with quite a few people.

    I even grabbed corals too, ones no one wanted I'm guessing from how long they were there :D

    Yeah, great swap. Or as I like to call it "Getting rid of green ricordia time". Shoot one container of the them was still sitting there as the free-for-all was winding down!

    I got some really great pieces, thanks guys! The sheer volume of corals to swappers was amazing!

    Remember this tried and true swap technique ... the more/better frags you bring, the more things to distract other swappers from your target pieces! :p

    I think next swap I'm going to bring a bucket filled with mushrooms and green ricordias like a punch bowl and get have people pick the plague of their choice!

    wow I feel special though that I picked that green ricordia first! Wooo! Unfortunately no amount of gluing helped, and the rock it was on for a couple hours is ummm I dunno where they are :D

    Are you guys talking about green yumas? Cause I had the same thing happen to me. It's currently in some rubble rock with a bridal veil. :)

    Wow...look like it was a great event again, huh? Too bad the timing was all off for us but we're glad everyone had a good time. Hopefully, we can attend the next regional swap and meet everyone again.

    There's Tony with his freaky talk again.

    At least there's no mention of a dress.

    Or you can bring a magnet and "accidentally" drop sticky pieces of metal on the your target pieces.
    Also, thank you Jess for giving me some foam coolers.

    Mike, I'm gonna make you a special green ricordia covered rock. I'm not sure when I can get to the next meeting, but it'll be waiting for you.

    How do you get them to grow so fast? My orange rics just sit there.
