Dave, I was in the city zoo a couple months ago and Mason was talking about having a small swap for locals. The next time you are in there ask him about it.
I absolutely agree that the 2 swaps I have been to since getting back into the hobby felt more commercialized than anything else...
I'd be interested in getting together. I just got back into the hobby so I'm not really able to show my reef off. I would definitely hang out and check out what everyone else is up to!
Also I'm a brewer at a local craft brewery. So I could provide some adult beverages!
