    We're excited to announce the 2016 BAR Members Frag Swap!

    This frag swap is open to BAR Supporting Members only. We plan this event to appreciate the club members. This event will be smaller than our Regional Frag Swap which is a good thing since members will bring their absolute best corals! You will see some familiar faces/usernames

    Don't know what a frag swap is? Check this thread out. The members frag swap and regional frag swap are probably my most favorite events out of the entire year. Definitely do not miss this event!

      So not sure if this is even possible maybe there is a rule I missed but I am going to be out of town for the swap but had a couple frags and would love some fresh corals. I am in San Mateo and was wondering if anyone could be a proxy for me? Just curious. Sad to be missing this especially since I finally have frags.

    2. Enderturtle
      I love aquatic collection. Amazing selection of healthy fish. Corals pretty good. He always has some nice zoas!

      I'm excited as I have some large pieces that I plan to frag soon with the help of @Coral reefer and his saw. I don't really have much room for new frags but happy to share what I have if the fragging is successful. If interested, please check out my tank journal as this is what I plan to frag: Pink Sand Dollar #39, Mycedium #46, Orange Digitata #47, and Tongue Coral.

      Oooh - very cool Geneva. What a cool assortment of corals! Have fun with the fragging. If you take any photos (before, during, after) please share so I can show my reef club students what they may do before the school year ends.

      1st round of raffle prize announcements.

      Made those lil frag plug sponsor icons in photoshop. Whatcha think!?

      Stay tuned for the next round of raffle prize announcements!

      Also I'll be checking in with Steve on Monday to get 100% on the Frag Swap Date.

      We're expecting your name tag to say "Dr. Felecia Lynn" :D

      Hope to see ya there! I will be looking for that blue sponge!
    7. FeliciaLynn
      The name tag won't get to say doctor until after May 13th sadly. Granted, that's pretty soon so we can just all pretend a bit early :) I've got plenty of blue sponge, so I'll bring a few frags to spread around. My original frag came from Mike Bondolo (longtime club member), so its definitely a BAR lineage item at this point.

      PLEASE NOTE the date has been changed to Saturday March 26 due to room availability.
    9. Baykes
      Thanks for confirming this. So is this 100% or dependent if the 19th is available again?

      Nope we are 100% doing it March 26. Hopefully you'll be able to make it. Easter is the Sunday after.
    11. Baykes
      Sounds great, I will be there! Can't wait! I just did my first fragging ever, and so far there has been no casualties. They were mainly zoas, so they were pretty forgiving for some sloppy cuts :)

      Ah, bummer. I was looking forward to taking the kids to their first swap...but the date changed. :(

      Oh well.
    13. bondolo
      :( Sadly I won't be able to make it on the new date. I will put up some DBTC posts for the frags I was planning to bring.
    14. Enderturtle
      Wait how busy are people the Saturday before Easter?

      Do most people do stuff on the saturday before easter. I'm not religious so I have no idea what happens the saturday before easter.

      If a whole bunch of you guys can't make it because of the date change then i'd rather push it back into April than have a 20 person event.
    15. coral4me
      March 26th does work for @Ashalye and I. We are planning to attend as well as bring along a new member yet to have his handle. If the BAR Swap does get pushed out further, we will not be available the first Saturday in April, but the rest of April looks open for us.

      @Enderturtle, thanks for the coordination to get as many members to the event as possible. We all appreciate it!

      I will be there to help out. I do have some softies, colt coral, I believe. They are large and need to go to good home. Not much else in the frag dept as I have just started doing this. Maybe next year or at the regional swap.

      Not sure yet if I can attend new date due to family gathering and spring break.
    18. FeliciaLynn
      I would love some colt coral! :) I'm all for the "unexciting" softies lately!
