    With the swap pre-sale forum being opened up so early(usually 2 weeks before swap if I recall) will those who post for sale threads be able to edit them up until the swap? I think editing used to be shut off a week or two after the original thread was posted.

    Thanks!

    Not a bad question at all. There will be a table at the Expo that will sell the tickets. Just put the tickets in the box associated with the prizes you want. I believe the raffle will be at 3:30.

    Just got word from Turbo Aquatics that they are donating a L2 Scrubber. It will either be here on Friday, or he will ship directly to the winner next week.

    Woohoo!
    Looks like we will have some nice big prizes.
    Off the top of my head:
    Full Apex from TCMAS
    Apex Jr from New Wave
    2 part dosing setup from BRS
    L2 Scrubber from Turbo
    Food packs from Reed Mariculture and LRS
    Gift Certificates from Live Aquaria and Unique Corals

    and of course all the great stuff that Petco-Minnetonka brings!
    I am sure I forgot some.There will be many more smaller ticket items as well.

    I'm loaded up and on the road to start setting up for the swap. Come ready for lots of items that haven't been posted and an open wallet for all the eye candy out great vendors have this year!
