    He said he will already be in Sacramento that week visiting family, so he thought it would work nicely...

    Probably a good idea to warn him though, that ppl don't buy a lot at this swap.

    At the board meeting it was decided that pre-registration would be $15 and at the door would be $20.

    This thread needs updating since cost of frag swap has been determined. What is pre-registration cutoff date?

    Good job BOD. I'd suggest updating the bonus coral list and setting a limit. At the members only swap, some of the list didn't deserve to be considered bonus. Ex: Rastas/Chili pepper monti shouldn't qualify regardless of polyp count.

    I think the MARS group had a pretty legit list floating around.

    Let's see some raffle incentives :)

    Awesome.. I think I might be able to make it!! Just. Question, i don't have anything to swap for now, will members be selling corals too or just the vendors? The registry fee is only for those that are swapping or everybody?

    Just a couple question... first time on these events...

    In the past some of the vendors have sold frag packs at the event but you may just want to stop at Neptune, CRC, or AC on your way and pick them up from there. Make sure to bring labels to write on the cups the information needed to swap them (user name, name/type of coral, lighting used).

    Only those who are swapping need to pay. Spectators are free.

    I created Facebook events on the BAR page and fb groups. Hopefully that will help advertise the swap as well. :)

    Is there a sign up for volunteers? Peter and I would be happy to help set-up, organize corals onto the tables, and help clean up.
