Hi Everyone!

I am happy to announce we are going to be hosting our second annual BRS Fragtastic Show!

We are moving to a larger room, those that attended the April meeting will be familiar with the size of this venue. The Leominster Eagles Hall located at 425 Litchfield St in Leominster MA will allow us to host 30+ vendors! We are calling all those that had a table last year or any other vendors to e-mail me - timvaillancourt@bostonreefers.org or pm me for more details.

Entry is still $5.00! and FREE for BRS paid members (Bring your card to get in!)

Tables are going to be in 4' seconds and we have to rent long tables so prices did go up a bit. $25 for 4', $50 for a dedicated 8' table.

On top of the frag show this year we will also be holding:
Raffle
Silent Auction
BBQ

Bring Your family, tell your friends the BRS Fragastic Show is on!

We are a little under a month away and need everyone's help to spread the word!

We are also looking for some more vendors/sponsors. If you know someone who has saltwater equipment/supplies etc. let us know so we can reach out to them!

@Joe Rice Can you link this forum to the homepage?

I don't have a card but am a member. I have never received a card in the mail. can I still get in for free with my son?
If you need a card you can contact @Bendint (private message probably works best). We can look you up on the forums as well but it will probably take a little more time to get in.

Any chance there's a way to get in on the raffle if we can't go?

I have a battalion level field operation for my job with the Marine Corps Reserves that weekend at an undisclosed location within 5 miles of the BRS Fragtastic Show...but I don't think they'd appreciate me leaving with a convoy to go frag shopping.

I really wish I could make it, but drill always seems to get in the way of all these cool events you guys set up.

Thanks in advance, regardless of your answer...but if it's a yes, please post the details publicly so maybe others that can't make it can still get in on the fun and prizes?

@dakar652

Great idea! We could probably pre-sell grand prize tickets. The apex drawing will be a different price per ticket over the donated items that have retail ranges of a couple bucks to $129.

Tickets for the Apex Drawing will be
$5/ticket
$20/5 tickets
$40/15 tickets

Tickets for the regular drawing (which we could not do online pre-sales for) would be

$1/ticket
$5/6 tickets
$10/15 tickets
$20/35 tickets.

Lastly, I will see about The feasibility of doing a Facebook bidding for the silent auction corals. I would need to figure out what pick up protocol would be for corals.... whether you pick up from a vendor, or arrange someone to bring them back for you... I am open to suggestions on the last one.

Let me get some PayPal set up with @jamesdong009 for apex raffle.

If you know what tickets you want in the other raffle we can do that but I am waiting for several donations to still come in before having a more complete list.

Thanks for the suggestion Dakar!

I have a question. I want to come to this and while I do not have an issue paying to get in I did just pay to become a member. I do not know if I wil get a card to have proof before the show. Is this an issue?
