08-30-2012, 05:51 AM
Hi All,

Once again this year we are working hard to include the salt water hobbyists to participate in the event. With that in mind we have decided to run a Frag Swap. This will be Run during the day.

Where - Back of the auction room, Waterloo Inn (475 King Street North, Waterloo, Ontario)
When - October 28th around 1:30. (We will work this out so that the salt water donation items are auctioned when waiting for frags to open)


1) Each participant must provide a minimum of 1 decent sized and healthy frags. (more are allowed) they do not need to be the same coral, in fact we encourage you to bring all different frags (no more then 3 frags of one type)
2) Frags will be inspected by one of the club members who is helping run the swap. (They must be of sufficient quality and free of hitch-hikers)
3) All frags should be registered approximately 30 minutes before the start of the swap.
4) Each participant will be provided a clear food grade container for each frag.
5) Frags will be placed in the container (participants need to supply their own water, though we will have a little bit there just in case of emergency)
6) Each container will be marked with the common name of the coral species
7) Each participant receives one ticket for each frag they enter.
8) The participants can use the 30 minutes before the swap, after setting up their frags to inspect the others and decide what they want to get.
9) Tickets will be drawn for the order of participants
10) As a ticket is drawn the participant has approximately 1 minute to select a frag from those available and remove it from the table.
11) For frags left over (we hope there will be a few frags donated by sponsers) a random draw will be done.

If you are not sure how to frag your corals you can contact jeff.loney@hotmail.com or me@camturner.com

This event should be between an hour and an hour and a half.

We would prefer to have people registered in advance so we can try to avoid 10 of the same coral and so we know how much equipment to bring. Lighting will be provided.

Any questions or to register email me at jeff.loney@hotmail.com or contact me on the forum. This thread will also be monitored. Hope to see you all there.

Less then ten days away. We have over 20 donated frags just remember you will have a chance to win these just by participating. We also have some higher end stuff that should be auctioned off, such as a poker star Monti frag.
