Frag Swap 2011 feedback

Post by blennieluvr on Thu Feb 09, 2012 10:49 pm

Do you want another swap event in 2013? Someone asked me if I thought one each year would be too much with our small group. Comments? It seems like it was received well enough that we should do it again and I'm not thinking making it an annual event seems like too much but please share your thoughts.

If and when we do it again, does anyone have suggestions of things that would make it a better event? Some things we have already discussed are better local advertisement, set up the raffles differently so they don't take so long, cut back on the food offerings, more buying/selling time. Also, keep in mind that we have a small crew working on this so we do need to keep it simple.

Plan it on a different weekend so I can actually come next time...lol. Just kidding, but I'd like to hear the thoughts and feedback as I may be rolling something out in Fargo this summer.

Fargo in the summer...I know of at least one speaker (not thinking of myself, someone else I know) who'd do it to help him achieve a life goal Wink

It's an interesting question to ask...should the swap be every year or every other year? HMM. I would say every year if only to keep some momentum going,but that's just my take on it. January as always will be risky, but you're willing to do it at a time when other swaps aren't happening, which gives it a bit more draw from areas around the state.

I know just the speaker you're thinking of! He would be great for drumming up enthusiam for this hobby!

We certainly can have the January swap once a year and see how things go. If it seems to fizzle, we can always scale back.

I might also suggest setting up such a swap with a well known, well publicized SNOW DATE.

I'd ask the vendors what THEY think about doing it once per year...no vendors = no swap Wink Ask them what they would want to see changed / reworked.

This swap was my dive off the deep end for saltwater. I had a blast and really learned alot from the vendors. I was too new to meet to many of the club's members. I thought it was a great swap. I am willing to help with next year if it's around the same time. More shopping time would be good. More room of course, but that's always the hardest part finding space. Although there are swaps elsewhere, like others it can be hard to get to them. Count me in for slave help, that's for sure.

Done most of this but good point to ask their opinion about every year.
