APRIL 5, there is going to be a swap meet for a Charlotte club in Spartanburg

Foothills Music Hall 122 builders Court, Spartanburg SC
Table registration is from 8am-12pm the meet starts at 11.

they are waving the table fee... so i thought we should show up with some frags a rubbermaid and a flier to get the word out about our club and possibly make a few $ in the process(I asked the event coordinator if this would be okay and she was fine with it). It is for all aquarists so i do not know what the saltwater side of their club is like, but maybe we could coax some of the killifish breeders over to the dark side :beer:.

I'm also sure equipment and any other drygood would do great. this may be that moment for you to unload some unused equipment and GSP you have growing out of the tank on another local reefer that would appreciate it.

post or pm if interested, i will frag some corals to take if anyone wants to go.. i may go too it sounds kinda fun for me and i could wear my OF shirt while standing next to the PMAC flyer :agree:.

Cheers,

Curious, is this in Boiling Springs? If so, you'll need to take the 2nd left (Giles rd) after passing the Rite Aid that's on Valley Falls Rd and No 9 when traveling north on SC No 9 (but you'll have to go to the sharp turn to the right of Giles Dr., and Builders will be on your left in the turn, a dead-end st.), kind of an out-of-the-way location for the AquaCharlotte meet... See: http://www.mapquest.com/maps/122+Builders+Ct+Spartanburg+SC+29316-6001/

Can anyone confirm the location?

the fee and registration have been waived just show up with your stuff @ or before 11 and team up with the rest of the club still only 20 available so you may have to show up a little early.

I will not be able to make it, but could send some things if anyone is willing to come to the store to pick them up. the flyer is at the store and it is exactly as chris posted
