    Wasn't sure where i should post this but want everyone to know about it. Figure the more heads up ppl have they can plan around it. So i'll be attending both and wouldn't mind car pooling with anyone thats around here. (I'd drive) Also wouldn't mind meeting more ppl on here. Smitty, BJ, Leslee, x19, ect.....

    Heres what i have coming up and the info i've found so far.

    -Cmas, Chicago has changed to 9/24
    -Discover World, Milwaukee has changed to 10/1


    Chi event.

    12:00 PM – 4:30 PM


    Location: VFW Post - 431 N. Neltnor (Rte 59) in West Chicago, IL

    CMAS cordially invites you to an awesome day of reefing activities!

    The best local Frag swap in the Midwest!

    Don’t forget the Mega Raffle!

    GRAND PRIZE RAFFLE ITEM:
    29 gallon Oceanic BioCube[​IMG]


    The Oceanic Bio Cube is an all-inclusive aquarium for any level hobbyist. The Bio Cube aquarium features curved glass front corners, side viewing window for filtration water pump, blue lunar moon lights and two compact fluorescent lamps along with a remote ballast. The 29 Gallon Bio Cube has dual filter intakes, one on top to skim the surface and one on the bottom, allow constant water flow through the integrated wet/dry filtration system.


    Mike from Living Sea will have a coral fragging class at 2pm. The first 8 emails, I receive at [email protected] will get into the class!




    The Frag Swap will begin at 12:00 PM – We will be grilling hot dogs, hamburgers and brats! The cash bar will be open for your refreshments and there will be plenty of great frags to be had. All CMAS members and interested reefers are invited to attend this great event.

    CMAS members will get in for FREE! For all other attendees, the event entry is only $15. All attendees will receive one free raffle ticket and may purchase additional raffle tickets during the event.

    In order to offset the hall rental costs, there will be a nominal table rental fee for all sellers. Table fees are FREE for CMAS members, $25 table rental for non-CMAS members and a $35.00 table rental fee for commercial sellers. We will also offer shared tables if you do not have enough items for a full table.

    Note: you need to reserve table space if you have more than ten frags to trade.

    Email me at [email protected] <FONT face="Arial Black"><FONT color=blue><FONT size=3>for any other information.__________________

    Nothing yet. Just the date and place. Same place as last year. Discovery world. I'll see what I can dig up on it for you.

    Thanks! I've never been to a frag swap before, but this one would be the closest so far at about 2 hours away. This sounds like a total noob question, but I assume you can buy frags if you have nothing to swap, correct?

    The name can be confussing. Its not a "swap" Its vendors selling frags....you bring cash and leave with full stomach and frags.

    Sounds great to me! I'm actually meeting a fragger I met at the LFS tomorrow for my first true "swap". He's looking to cut back his SPS and is gladly taking a few mushroom heads for several frags!

    Dana, I'd be interested in attending both, and definitely carpooling to the one down in Chitown. It would be cool to get together with all the Living Reefs residents down there, Smitty, Leslie etc

    And if you don't mind walking a few blocks, I've got free parking downtown where my dad works if I pick up his parking pass ahead of time. Its probably about 4 blocks from Discovery World

    I agree with you...my girlfriend came with me and she kept getting separated from me, and lost in the crowd. So eventually I had to square my shoulders up and become a lil aggressive to bogart my way thru. There were kids running around bumping into people, and people everywhere you turned...so for those who had never been to one, start doing your pushups now. :mrgreen:

    Smitty has what they call "command presence". I assume he needs neither his uniform or his nightstick. :D
