Discovery World/WRS/MARS/FVRS Coral Frag swap. Registration is open for the event taking place September 19th from 9am until 5pm.

Discovery World
500 N. Harbor Dr.
Milwaukee, WI 53202

Discovery World is partnering with WRS, MARS and FVRS to put together what very well may become south eastern Wisconsin’s largest frag swap. We have room and yes, electricity for upwards of 65 traders and vendors. In addition to the coral vendors the clubs are working on providing a full day of guest speakers, demonstrations, used dry goods sale room, and other related activities. Vendors and manufactures will be offered the chance to make a tax deductable donation to the coral/livestock/dry goods auction and or Raffle. Proceeds will go to Discovery World’s Atlantic Coral Project. Just to entice you further, we have already had a few donations to the auction. Alternative Reef has promised a few goodies and there will be a handful of ORA corals as well. I will update everybody with planned attendance numbers and vendor participation as well as the list of confirmed activities on a frequent basis.



Prices for the attendee and vendor packages are listed below, admission includes full regular admission to Discovery World’s aquarium and other exhibits as well as the frag swap activities.

Reservations will be handled by Mike Armgardt from our group sales department. Mike can be reached at 414-765-8618. To make life easier for everybody we can take your credit card over the phone.



Attendee price $8. Pre-registration is required. If purchased on the day of the event, regular admission rates apply. (A regular adult admission is $16.95 and parking is about $14 for 6 or more hours)

$5.00 parking for 1 car
Additional family members $8 each

I have a family membership to Discovery World that covers admission. Would additional payment be required to attend the frag swap?

I there a plan to have another great time this year at discovery world. If so I would be willing to help. I know the organizer of this event takes a lot of responsibility and to make it happen takes a lot of effort. So I was just posting this up to show that me and many others would love to get this going again this year.
Thanks

I'm interested in knowing if this will be going on this year as well. I've heard from fellow reefers that it's been a great event in the past.

I'm going to have to figure that out in the very near future. I'm going send an email out to the vendors that attended last year, if enough of them are interested I'll do it again. It is a nice fundraiser for our non profit aquarium, its just a pain in the butt. :)
