I hope you guys don't mind the post here, but we have some additional room and thought we would invite the neighbors :)

Discovery World/WRS/MARS/FVRS Coral Frag swap. Wow, we need a better name, but in the meantime registration is open for the event taking place September 19th from 9am until 5pm.

Discovery World is partnering with Wisconsin Reef Society, Madison Area Reef Society and Fox Valley Reef Society to put together what very well may become south eastern Wisconsin's largest frag swap. We have room and yes, electricity for upwards of 65 Traders and Vendors. In addition to the coral vendors the clubs are working on providing a full day of other related activities. Traders/Vendors and manufactures will be offered the chance to make a tax deductable donation to the coral/livestock/dry goods auction and or Raffle. Proceeds will go to Discovery World's Atlantic Coral Project. Just to entice you further, we have already had a few donations to the auction. Alternative Reef has promised a few goodies and there will be a handful of ORA corals as well. I will update everybody with planned attendance numbers and vendor participation as well as the list of confirmed activities on a frequent basis.
