    CVR 2017 Fall/Winter Open Frag Swap



    When:
    December 9, 2017 (Saturday)
    Check in: 11 AM
    Start: 1 PM



    Where:

    Petco
    4144 N Blackstone Ave, Fresno, CA 93726

    Registration Fees:
    This swap is open to everyone, club member or not. Come on out!
    Participation Fee:
    $10 Pre-Registration
    $15 At the Door for non-club members
    $10 At the Door for CVR, NVR, BAR, MARS, and CRC members
    Want to become a CVR member? CVR Membership is only $20 and you help fund events like this and the site!
    You are *GUARANTEED* to walk away with at least twice that value in corals, usually much higher!
    PayPal: cvreefers@gmail.com
    Don't forget to send it as Friends and Family!


    To Bring/know:
    Minimum 3 frags
    (Green Star Polyps, Clove Polyps, Blue Cloves, and Kenya Trees will not be counted towards the 3 frags)
    ~~ Don't have 3 frags? Check with our sponsors (Blue Planet, Legendary Corals, Exotic Frags, to name a few!) to get a cheap 3-frag pack! ~~
    It would be a good idea to do some homework and see what type of coral your tank can support. For example softies such as zoas & palys can be much more forgiving and don't require as much as say an acropora would. It's also a good idea to bring an icechest/cooler to transport your corals home in to help keep them well insulated. We're in Fresno, which means our spring/summer swaps are hot, and our fall/winter swaps are cold. All of your frags must be in a deli cup or styro cup with a lid. Easily found at your local Smart & Final or grocery store in a sleeve of 50 for about $5. No bags will be allowed for the sake of the coral's safety. Tupperware ok but no spaghetti sauce stains. These cups must be labeled. If they are not labeled properly you will be asked to step out of the check in line and label them. If you show up with frags in bags we will sell you a cup and lid for $1,000,000. Each. Buy 6, get one free. Labels/markings must include your screen name, what type of coral it is (zoa, shroom, chalice), if your coral is an unnamed piece please provide description (i.e..blue stag), and conditions the coral requires (i.e..high light, high flow). If seeing a cup labeled "Pink Boobies Chalice" will confuse you, just know it was named that for a reason. It's probably pretty cool.

    For labeling, you can use tape and paper, mailing label stickers, or even just write on the lid. But just please make it legible to read your writing. You can get fancy and print them out too (like Who Dah? always does). To protect the integrity of frag swaps and to avoid any conflict during coral check-in, you are required to write down your name and handle just in case a half-dead coral slips pass us during check-in. This is not an event to pass on your half-dead corals to get healthy corals. This event is for people to share within the community. Many are appreciative to those who bring in corals listed as bonus round corals, so it's highly discouraged and frowned upon to mislabel your corals to obtain more bonus round tickets. No one will be allowed in the swapping area outside of their designated swapping time except swap volunteers. This keeps the curiosity going to what hidden treasurers there are and keeps it fair to those that may arrive later during the check in process. I do suggest somebody start a "What I am Bringing to the Swap" thread. We probably forgot something, but please just ask.

    What coral vendors have been confirmed to be coming. I would prefer to just purchase frags for the swap.

    Heya - for coral sales, Legendary Corals has confirmed. w00t! They always have swap frag packs. You might even want to hit them up ahead of time to see if they can put together a bonus frag pack for ya?

    I'll be there! I'm not a very good helper at events like these but I'm glad to pitch in if you need.

    The link to the bonus corals list just brings me back to this same thread.

    White trumpets, those sound sick. I know candy cane (trumpets) are pretty fun of the mill but my neon green ones are my favorite thing in my tank right now. They way the open up super big and have fingers like glass. I love them.

    Total event profit/loss: $86.86 profit

    Although the goal is not to make a profit, it is a goal to cover the losses. This event, CVR made a small profit of $86.86. This profit will be used on future events and/or club expenditures. (As an example, we just spent ~$113 on a Membership ID card printer and 100 ID cards.)

    EDIT 1: correction to coming a $10 payment line item and $20 payment line item into a single $30 payment in entrance fees. and giving additional props - thanks guys!

    EDIT 2 coming: need to add expenses for tables/chairs and pizza when receipts become available
