Up to the minute info at http://bobmooreswap.com

The Bob Moore Frag Swap originated in 2009, in memory of the Puget Sound area legend Bob Moore who was always known for his generosity and unwavering support of the reefkeeping community. From 2009 through 2015, the Bob Moore Frag Swap was operated by the Puget Sound Aquarium Society (PSAS) as a membership event showcasing speakers, vendors and hobbyists through a frag swap and raffle fundraiser event each February.

It has been told that Bob was the most generous reefer one could hope to meet, he never asked for anything for himself when sharing his coral, only that you paid it forward to another reefer. This event continues to live on supporting the pay it forward mantra.

The Bob Moore Frag Swap is a large scale frag swap event that boasts 300+ attendees annually to remind us that reefkeeping is a small community of like-minded hobbyists through which the hobby is best enhanced and expanded through small exchanges of hobby kindness.

Now it in its 8th year, the Spokane Coeur d Alene Reef Society, a 501(c)7 social non-profit organization (www.spcdareefs.org) based in Spokane, Washington is hosting this annual event.

All proceeds from table, entry, and raffle sales go towards the costs of hosting the event and the ongoing efforts of the SPCDA in the region through club related social activities.

Have a question, concern, general note? You can contact us directly at info@bobmooreswap.com or call Joanne, the swap coordinator at 425-644-3778.

Online ticket sales will be closing this evening. Be sure to get yours today to ensure your early entry admission; spend less time waiting in line and be one of the first to see what vendors and hobbyists have available!

My husband and I attended today. Thank you for hosting such a great event! It was our first experience with something like this as new hobbyist and it was amazing. I got some amazing pieces, spoke with some great people and learned a lot. I can't wait to do it again next year!

I definitely stopped in for a bit and didn't waste time, I came home with some awesome corals and will be saving up for the next swap event.

It was way busier that I had imagined it would be.

Great turnout everyone!

Hadn't checked back since the swap. Could have used a little more time to recover. LOL
Seemed like everyone had a good time, and that it went pretty well.

Most Seattle folks seem to spend their 'online time' on one or two facebook groups and not as many are found in the forums anymore.
