    Posted: January 22 2018 at 10:00am
The local fish tour is back and is building on the great results from last year!! There will be lots of details coming out, but save the dates on your calendar now. There are going to be awesome prizes from the club and great deals from the stores.

Dates: February 9-10, 2018

Hello Everyone! Thank you for being patient with the details of this awesome event coming up. We have talked to the stores and they are looking forward to the LFS Tour. We will be doing the tour this year like we did last year using the punch passes.

Punch passes will have all of the stores participating in this year's tour on it. There will be a stores name in each square on card-stock. Anyone can purchase a pass for $5. You will then take that around to each store and receive a stamp on that store's square. Stores will also be handing a free item or giving specials discounts to those who have a card.   ONLY 1 CARD PER PERSON. If you have two cards you are going to need a friend to hold one for you. Everyone that has a pass has to be present to have their pass stamped. The back of the pass will have information for the cardholder to fill out to be entered into a drawing. Once you have received a stamp from all of the stores, or as many as you are able to, please put it in the box at the closest store. If you need assistance, please ask the stores and they would be happy to help.

Passes will be available to purchase online starting Wednesday, January 24th, at the February 1st meeting and at all participating stores. Passes purchased online will be available for pickup at the February 1st Meeting.

Buy your puch pass online here:
http://utahreefs.com/store/index.php?route=product/category&path=38

PRIZES:
For those who are able to visit all of the stores on the pass, you will be entered into the Grand Prize which will will be posted as the date approaches. In the past the prize has included tanks and stands graciously donated by Driftwood and we are working to continue that tradition. We sincerely thank them for their support of the club and for the time and craftsmanship in all of the stands they have donated to WMAS throughout the years.

Those who are unable to visit all of the stores, or did not win in the grand prize drawing, will be entered into a Secondary Prize. Other prizes may be announced between now and the event. Please keep checking back for updates.      

               The stores have been finalized! Here is the list of the stores participating in this year's LFS Tour:
Where's Nemo
Aquatic Evolution
Fish4U
Rusty's Reef
Reef On
Mark's Ark
Pets and Such
D and F's Salty Heaven
The Fish Tank
OCD Reefs
Aquatic Dreams

Passes
are $5 and will be available the night of the February 1st meeting and are also 
available for purchase online. Pickup for passes purchased online will 
be available at the meeting on February 1st. Pictures of the 
passes coming soon along with more reveals on prizes.


Below are Q and A but if you have additional questions please ask. Chances are someone has the same questions.

Q. Where can I get a pass?

A. Passes will be available for sale online starting Wednesday January 24th and at the February 1st meeting. If you are unable to buy the pass before the event, they will be available for purchase at the stores.



Q. Can I bring my family with me even though I bought one pass?

A. Yes please bring them! They will be able to participate in the store sales and games, but there will only be one stamp and one free item given for the punch pass portion of this event.



Q. Can there be more than one pass per family?

A. Of course. The passes are $5.00 per person. Each person wanting to participate in the drawings must have their own pass with them when getting a stamp. ONLY 1 PASS PER PERSON



Q. What happens when I fill out my whole punch pass or when I have completed all that I can?

A. You will give it to the last store you went to and they will be gathered up and put into a drawing for a series of grand prize drawings. 



Q. What if I don't win in the grand prize drawings?

A. All of the passes that do not win in the grand prize drawings will be added to the secondary series of prizes and will have a chance of winning in that drawing. If you won a grand prize, your card will not be placed into the secondary series drawing. 



Q. What if I don't make it to all of the stores?

A. We still want to support as many stores as possible in this event. Passes that have less than all of the stamps, AND those who did not win in the grand prize drawings will be entered into a secondary series of drawings.



Q. If I don't have a pass, can I be entered into the drawing for this event?

A. Only passes will be entered into the drawings and MUST have the contact information filled out on the back so we can contact you.

Who likes to win prizes? We now have the Grand Prize for our LFS tour all sorted out. Go to all the stores on the punch card during the LFS tour and drop your card in one of the collection boxes. Your card will be entered into the drawing for the Grand Prize drawing! We will post a few pics of this prize in the next few days and weeks so keep watching!

Can't make it to all of the stores on the tour? Worry not. There are many prizes to be won for participating in the tour. There will even be a prize for those that post pictures to the forum or Facebook during the two days of the tour! It's really a no lose kind of thing.

I'm not sure what you are asking. Banquet is seperate from the LFS tour.

Are you asking what if you can't be at the meeting in April when the prizes are drawn? Or did you buy tiskets to the Banquet and now cannot attend?

You don't have to be present to win at the April meeting (as long as you remembered to put your name and number on the back of the punch card). I fyou win and are not there to claim it you are responsible to make arrangements to pickup your prize in a timely manner.

Does that answer your question?

Pets and such is the only store that is requiring people to buy something in order for the card to be punched. I suggest that they be removed from the fish store tour. That was never part of the tour.

While we can't prevent the stores from requiring a purchase. We have asked them not to. This tour is designed to get hobbyists out to the stores and hopefully get a few dollars in the pockets of the stores that support us in this hobby.

Most stores did donate items to the drawings that are part of this tour so as a club member and hobbyist we encourage you to spend some money if the stores have items you need or want. Buying items is a win - win for everyone but again it is not required.

We are talking to them to see if we can resolve this. Thanks for the info and hope you have a great time. Post some pictures!

Visited aquatica in Orem. Always a great place. Picked up reef booster and float to auto fill my tank.

Also picked up a coral or two :)

For every problem there is a solution! Here is what we have come up with to solve the little issue our member ran into tonight. The Pets and Such spot on your punch card is a free spot! You heard that right. Everyone gets that spot even if they didn't get to the store. So take your big black sharpie marker and write the word FREE in that spot on your card! Don't worry if you already turned your card in, We know it's a free spot. ;) For those that went to the store and were kind enough to buy some thing and get the punch, We have a surprise for you as well but you'll have to come to the meeting in April to find out what it is. Thank you to everyone that got out there and showed our stores some love already! Get Salty! See you tomorrow.

Copy them here or onto the WMAS Facebook group to count for the raffle. We aren't admins on the Utah Reef Keepers page and can't track the posts for the raffle.
