2015 Reef Meets

Good idea mate. How does having meets at members houses as frag swaps and when we visit an LFS we buy from them? That way we are getting the best of both worlds.

 

I agree with that. Although the main aim is to get together and have a good meet-up. But we also want to be supporting our sponsors and people aren't gonna be spending in the LFS if there's frags on the car park. 

 

Definitely keep frag swaps and reef meets as 2 different things IMO

what so if you are meeting up and have some frags that another member wants, then we just leave them at home?

 

besides if we swap frags, then there is still money in your pocket to buy from the sponser!

IMO, yes! , there's a classifieds section with a frags swap section on here and another 364 days of the year to do that. 

 

Don't be so bloody tight and put your hand in your pocket and support an LFS!

I think Reef Meets should be about meeting up, having a good chat and supporting our sponsors. Swapping frags on a car park outside the LFS isn't something we should get into IMO.

 

Most if not all LFS have frags available if you have no room for colonies.

 

Frag Swap meets should be for that.  

 

If you've got no room left and still want more corals then it's time for an upgrade mate lol  : CRAZY :

@@Daz4126... Agree with your line of thought mate.

 

Frag swaps for people's houses, LFS meets purchase from the LFS... Otherwise there is no incentive for the LFS to get involved and host something if we will mainly be swapping frags on their premises.

 

Obviously if it's something that you have made an agreement with another member to pick something up off them at an LFS meet than that's fine... But it would be a bit weird getting all out butty boxes out in someone's car boot with a blue led tube wired in so we can see what another members offerings looks like under the blue's

@@tbert33 did you go reefest?

 

there were so many folk in each others car boots it was unreal, and everyone still had a damned good chin wag and meetup, and im pretty certain the lfs had phenomenal sales over the weekend.

 

I was never suggesting sales or un arranged swaps, wasn't talking about turning up with 50 frags of things and hoping to swap or sell, and I am pretty certain that most lfs would happily take frags from customers to swap or buy from them as I have been doing for the past six months.

 

not trying to be controversial here. just trying to get you guys to think outside of the box.

thanks but no thanks bud, too big for a future upgrade, quite like smaller tanks, had bigger systems in the past and it costs too much money.

I appreciate where your coming from Rory but it defeats the object for me. An LFS isn't there for a frag swap in my opinion.

 

I was at reef fest and reef fest did so well due to the volume of people going. Our meets won't be on that scale because it's for reef face members only.

 

You have raised an interesting point though about LFS accepting trades for frags... Something I wasn't aware happens... Call me naive
