The 2011 swap should be bigger and better than last year.
- The Coral Swap will have an amazing selection of coral, all at tremendous prices for you to purchase from our Traders—all coral experts, in their own right, always willing to answer questions and give you suggestions on how to take care of your coral purchases.
- Silent Coral Auction, again this year, one of our major sponsors Foster & Smith’s LiveAquaria is donating coral from Diver’s Den for our silent auction.
- There are four ways in which attendees or coral traders can receive or win great items!
1) There will be Free Goody Bags to anyone who registers as an attendee. The giveaway items are of limited quantity and are on a "first come - first receive" basis.
2)Coral Trader Gift Certificate Drawing. Free to all attendees. The certificates can be redeemed at the Coral Trader's Table.
3) Door prize drawings will be held every hour staring at 11:00am cst.
4) Grand prize drawing will be held at 3:00pm cst. The grand prize will be a pair (2) of Vortec MP10ew ES. Other prizes to be announced.
Again this year, the Drs. Foster & Smith Retail Store will be offering a 10% discount on all dry-goods purchased the day of our swap! The map and discount coupon will be available at the swap registration table.
If you don't see it in the store, take a catalog at one of the front counters. You can order any dry-goods out of the catalog that you want. When you are ready to check-out, show the friendly person at the front counter what you want from the catalog and they'll run back to the warehouse and get it for you!! It is like the World's largest pet store inventory to choice from. Hint: I usually shop the catalogs or the website and make a shopping list before I get to the store. It will save you alot of time! More information about the Drs. F&S Retail Store can be found: HERE
* Basic Admission = FREE
* Special Admission = $5.00 includes 5 free dry good raffle tickets
