The members of NWRS are happy to announce our Fourth annual Frag Swap that will be held on March 17th at the Quality Inn (Holiday Inn), Rhinelander, WI. We are also pleased to say the Swap will again be co-hosted by our neighbors; the Upper Peninsula of Michigan Marine Aquarium Society (UPMMAS) and Lake Superior Marine Aquarium Club (LSMAC).


The NWRS is a reef club based out of Rhinelander, WI. Our membership covers a large area as far south as Wausau, WI and as north as Ontonagon, MI (UP). The Upper Peninsula of Michigan Marine Aquarium Society (UPMMAS) membership covers the western half of Upper Michigan. The Lake Superior Marine Aquarium Club is centered in Duluth, Minnesota and their membership covers northern Minnesota and the northwestern portion of Wisconsin.




Both LSMAC & UPMMAS along with two newly formed club Central Wisconsin Reef Society and Wausau Aquarium Reef Society will have their own club frag tanks (for their own fund raising) at our event. Our event is growing in both attendees and area reef club participation. Inviting our "neighbor" clubs to get more involved in our swap does more than improve the event. It gives our clubs the opportunity to have co-meetings, other events like speakers and most importantly everybody can make new friends from different areas.



Where: Quality Inn (Formally Holiday Inn), Rhinelander, WI.


When: Saturday, March 17th, 10:00am - 3:00pm cst. (Coral Trader setup, Friday, 4:00 - 8:00pm & Saturday, 8:00 - 10:00 am) WHY ATTEND


The 2012 swap will be bigger and better than last year.
