Default Re: Tarpon fly swap anyone?

You can't host a swap with them unless you have participated in a minimum of 3 swaps and you must supply phone number , address etc to the administration so they can attempt to curtail the problems they are having ! That's what happens when you try to run to many things at one time with no controls. I believe what our forum is doing now taking one swap at a time and and setting guidelines for when each swap shall start and end is a step in the right direction! I also believe splitting up the swapmeister duties between several qualified people(as set forth in the swap guidelines ) is also a positive step. There will always be some problems wherever you go it's how they are handled that determines the outcome of all swaps!
I had ten times rather swap there than here for reasons that I will not go into. I could really elaborate on why I feel this way, but it wouldn't amount to a hill of beans.
