Fragging/Dipping workshop 6/5, 10a-12p

In preparation for our Members’ Swap on 6/26, we are having a fragging/dipping workshop on 6/5 at Will’s (@Wlachnit) house in Pleasanton. 10a-12p.

Supporting members are welcome, can bring a guest (space permitting). No children since we will have some potentially dangerous equipment active. It’s up to Will how many people he feels comfortable hosting, so RSVP in the poll. Last time he hosted in his spacious garage with the garage door open.

We will be discussing and getting hands-on practice with techniques for fragging coral, mounting coral to plugs/rock, using frag containers/swap labels, dipping new frags for pests, and whatever else you guys would like. We will have band saws, bone cutters, scalpels, glue, plugs, rubble, etc to use. If you want to bring your own tools or donate some consumables, great (and let us know). Everyone should bring your own safety glasses, and gloves if you’ll use them.

We will need people to bring some coral colonies that you would like to have fragged up. It will help to have a variety of types of coral to practice on. What you do with the resulting frags of colonies you bring is completely up to you; options include taking them home again, donating some or all to the swap, giving or selling to the folks there, etc. Whatever makes sense for you, just have something in mind by the day of. The main thing we need is coral to practice on. Even dead coral skeletons would be helpful for practice.

For the members who have the club band saws, please confirm here that you will bring it or arrange for someone to bring it.

We will need some of the more experienced members to lead each of the practice zones, we’ll have more details about this and a signup shortly.
