    [​IMG] Hobbyists have begun to start loading corals and equipment on FragSwapper. The best deals usually go within hours of their listing, may want to check it out daily so you don't miss out.

    How the Raffle works
    At the swap there will be a staging area with several tables setup. The raffle items will be displayed on the tables along with a collection cup next to each item. Place your raffle tickets in the collection cups for the items you wish to win. The raffle tickets can be purchased at the swaps entrance where you pay admittance fee. When the raffle has started someone will mix up the tickets in the collection cup and blindly select one. If it is yours you win that item. The more tickets purchased the better your chances of winning and there is no limit to the number of items you can win. However you must be present to win.


    How To Get 3 Free Raffle Tickets
    In addition to purchasing raffle tickets you can obtain free tickets for posting items for sale on Fragswapper. For every three unique items you post on Fragswapper you will receive one free raffle ticket up to a maximum of 3 free tickets. Swap vendors are excluded from receiving free raffle tickets. Your tickets will be waiting for you when you arrive. Just tell the cashier your Fragswapper email address which is private to the public but we have access too

    Note: A unique item on Fragswapper no matter how many "quantity" counts as one item. i.e. One item with quantity of nine is considered one item.

    With the swap only 3 weeks away Fragswapper is getting some nice corals listed each day. Here some pictures of a few.
    Visit and Register here to see all the listings and reserve your gem before someone beats you to it.

    As many of you have found FragSwapper has been having time out and slow page response issues since Friday evening. Fizz (Site Owner/Administrator) has confirmed it is a host problem that may not be resolved until Monday. When I hear it is back available I will let you know or if anyone finds it working please let us know. Thanks

    AND the BEST..... 3 of their NILUS units for a really special deal!!!!!


    Just like any other swap the first half hour will be a madhouse with people rushing through the door anxious to get set up and treasure hunting. Please be patient as everyone settles in.

    Don't forget to print off your checklist from fragswapper.

    Lastly but not least here is the final swap layout

    I never imagined that we would ever fill such as massive facility. Thank you to all the Hobbyists, Vendors and Earlybirds for coming out and supporting WORC. It was a great day. Here are a few shots for those that couldn't make it this year.

    I was there. I had a blast.

    I think you got the pink lemonade I had unrequested. Lucky devil. Winning some good raffle prizes made up for it though.

    See you next year.
