The dry goods vendor for our event will once again be Dirk. Our food vendor is Benny’s BBQ. They will be serving hardwood-smoked pulled pork sandwiches with their homemade sauce. The opportunity to browse the hundreds of items in “Dirk’s The Real Reefer’s Store” and enjoy a sandwich from Benny’s BBQ is well worth the price of admission. This year 10 spots are available for hobbyists. Each spot is ½ of a 8-foot table. The cost is $10 for members, $20 for non-members (includes admission). It’s first come, first serve so contact us at. firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange payment for your table. If you set up a tank you need to bring your own extension cord and power strip and limit your electrical usage to one heater, powerhead and light. Vendor tables are $75 for each 8-foot table. Vendors interested in attending Fragtoberfest or sponsors wishing to donate items please contact us email@example.com. Reservations will be accepted after payment is received. Set-up for vendors/hobbyists will begin Friday afternoon 9/9 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 pm. and from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. on Saturday morning. The Grand Prize raffle item is a 50 gallon Starfire tank with a 16” Synergy Reef ghost overflow, custom stand, sump and AI SOL light. A sampling of raffle items includes two sets of two $100 weekend passes for the Aquatic Experience Chicago, BRS 4-stage RODI system, Probidio Biokit Reef Maintenance kits, Foster and Smith gift certificate, halide bulbs from AquaTech, and $250 of food from LRS Reef Frenzy. Attending vendors will also be offering items for the raffle.
