how long of a drive is this from Vancouver near PDX?

It's a little over 3 hours from my place. It's a little bit past Seattle. So my guess is about 2 hours 40 minutes from Vancouver. Well worth going. I have gotten some pretty cool zoas from trades I did in the past from Washington.

Want to all meet at my house and then head up?

 

 

You mean like a convoy over Roy? I would be interested. It would be early though as I would like to get there right at 10am.

There will be plenty of vendors that will be selling their treasures. Bring some plastic bags and a cooler to help transport them home.

I'm so mad, I really wanted to go and trade. I had ten frags already to go and had hoped to frag another ten for trading.

Maybe I'll go and buy some zoas.

For those with nothing to trade; the vendor's don't care! And, if you do want to trade; we will have a "trade table" setup so you have a meeting place for people to hookup and trade with you for pre-arranged trades, or you can hang in that area and hope to find a nice trade with a random attendee. Its a bit of chaos for those wanting to trade, as the swap as evolved to much more of a "sales place" over the years, but carry your cooler with you and offer up trades with anyone you meet!

 

You'd be surprised at the awesome stuff I've traded before... funny, things that are common in your area, are rarities to those up north, and vice versa!!

I'd like to get an idea of about how many people are going to the Bob Moore Frag Swap. I know that I will be there!

 

We have an idea of how many people have said they are unable to attend. We need to know how many are going!

      As requested, a thread starter for a Frag Swap at our May 2018 Meeting at Golden Basket I used my own previous template, so if it looks familiar...It is.
       Being a meet and greet type of gathering it seems like it would be a good time to get the old coral trades going on.
      If you would like, you can do your trading on the fly by just bringing by a few pieces and hoping that some one will have a desirable coral you want...Or better yet, you can post up what you have to trade and work out a preemptive exchange here on the forums, that method always works best for me. You can feel free to use this thread to post your trade-ables in or start a thread of your own.
      But First, let me get you some of Bert's basis tips for success here.
      1.) make an attempt to have a fragment of reasonable size and health and try and get things cut and ready a few days to a week ahead of time to have the wounds healed up for the exchange. And double/triple check for pest invertebrates or algaes before sending your corals out, we try to keep invasives to a minimum here...And once you get your frags home, just in case, always acclimate the specimens then dip the corals before you put them into your personal aquarium. QT Aquariums are best but good old Revive, Coral RX, Melafix, Iodine, or Bayer will do much better at prevention than nothing.
      2.) Try to package your corals appropriately. This can mean not putting a spiny coral like birds nest into a thin dollar store bag or not utilizing insulation on an extended cold or warm trip. Try a small cooler or Styrofoam. If you can't find either of these and the destination is a long distance, keep the vehicle air conditioned or heated appropriately. As far as packaging goes you can double bag and use thicker mil plastics, or something else like a Tupperware or specimen container. I have even used washed out yogurt or cottage cheese containers that stack well inside the coolers. Just use something that will work, nothing like losing a nice and colorful animal because the bag got too cold and leaked all the water out on the way home.
      3.)Do your best to be courteous and fair to one another by not take advantage of each others ignorance or generosity. These are people of all levels in the hobby so give them the benefit of your knowledge and experience instead of the cold shoulder. And speaking of generosity, that giving nature has always been smiled upon here at PNWMAS and pay it forward tends comes back around these parts.
      Well, the meeting is closing in fast, less than two weeks yeah.
      So Let's see em folks,  Whatcha Got!? Corals that is!
      Personally I have a ton of things I can cut if someone wants to ask for a general type of coral. For now here is a picture of some sweet zoas I have to cut before they attach to something they shouldn't. And I will add some things here once I can go and grab some pictures that don't suck.

      Hi guys, just joined the PNWMAS a couple weeks ago. Wish I'd know about this two years ago... Anyway, I have my own kiln/forge and have been making ceramic frag plugs for quite a while now and was thinking about starting to sell them I would probably be selling around 50 or so standard plugs for around 10 ish dollars depending on color and size and such. My main point is that I was curious if anyone would be interested in buying them. I would need to have quite a few people interested or at least a big order being that it costs a lot to run a big kiln and for that price, I wouldn't be making really anything, but I enjoy making them and having a reason to play with mud and fire. So let me know if you'd be interested or not. Also let me know if this is the right place to post this or not haha.
