Please count me in! I would love to set up and will be happy to post what I have available as we get closer to the date.

never have seen a fee for sellers anywhere else, how come here

Whenever I set up or attend I make a point of also buying from the LFS, so I don't have a problem with it.

I'm surprised that we don't see them more often. Especially with the a shop like ARC that provides food and prizes. I also notice that Randy usually has his full staff on hand during a swap.

you have a better chance at spending $20 and making a lot more money than spending $20 on a scratch off lottery ticket and usually winning $0. sell 1 or 2 frags and your even ! dont forget it costs $ for the electricity for all tanks set up.....heat for the room....full staff......food and beverage....etc. i think its pretty reasonable ! can't wait to go to it !

Didn't ARC almost burn down from someone's frag tank a few years ago?

Is the seller fee for people that want to set up a tank only? What about other pre-arranged selling without tanks? I will have ceramic frag discs and plugs to sell as well.
I'm due for a trip to ARC!

Having been to lots of frags swaps, $20 to set up a table is a kindness. Many swaps charge nearly that much just for regular admission. I'll be there with lots of cool stuff!

The selling fee applies only to folks who would like to setup a tank to sell corals at the event. There is no cost to conduct trades or prearranged sales online. The frag swap is (and has always been) free to attendees! :)

Nice work John . But why would sellers set their tanks up in October?
