Recommended Posts

The time has come for us all to set our smart phones for the best day in reefing around!  The 2019 16th annual INDMAS Annual Frag Swap is just around the corner and scheduled for March 16th, 2019.  We will be in the same amazing place as last year, just 18 miles from downtown Indy...in Danville!

 If you think last year was action packed…you don’t want to miss the fun we have in store for this year!  This year we will continue with a speaker before the event, we will have food trucks, and we have plans for even cooler raffles!  Our vendors and hobbyists will have tons of corals for you to shop for from 12pm to 4pm, and we are adding more great vendors to shop with this year!  There will be grab bags at the door...while supplies last!

More information will be posted shortly regarding tables for vendors and hobbyists that have booked, a frag swap FAQ, and more!  This INDMAS Frag Swap will be a great event to bring the whole family out to enjoy.  

 

Tentative Schedule for the day is as follows:

10am: Pre-registration for Speaker & Event

10:30am – 11:30am: Speaker Presentation

11:30am: Early entry into Swap for Speaker Attendees

12pm to 4pm: 2019 INDMAS Frag Swap

 

Set your calendars, and start the list of corals you must have for 2019!  

Reeftrader is planned to be set up for this event around the beginning of February and updates will be posted when this is done!
