Default re: Should We Suspend Swaps For The Summer????

In short, there was a good reason that we took tighter control over the fly swap activities.

Fly swaps can be fun for forum members and I have participated in some that went off well and some that sort of withered on the vine. The idea of not having forum sanctioned swaps during the busy summer season was simply an effort to avoid any further problems.

It's a bummer when 12 people sign onto a swap and then through attrition the number of people finishing is reduced. It is very easy to add your name to a swap group and then lose track of that swap as you are involved in other functions.

Also, unless an individual has prior experience at organizing the incoming flies and sending out the mixed dozens, hosting a swap is not a quick and easy task. For that reason we have tried to direct the 'Host' position to a limited number of members who were willing to take on the responsibility and have done so with great results.

The above paragraph demonstrates why we would like to be notified of who wants to organize and run a swap.
