Mark and I are happy to announce that our Cascade Rock and Gem Show will be held on September 20 (setup), 21 & 22 (show), 2019. The same 3rd weekend of September as last year.
Mark, Charlie, Pete and I met at Green River College and viewed the only facility they have large enough for us and is available on “our” weekend. Our show will be held this year in the gym. It is 10,000 sq. ft. of wide open space that can accommodate up to 60 booths. The gym does come with increased costs though. As a comparison, last year we had 42 booths. Mark, Charlie and I are working out the floor plan. Mark has a large vendor waiting list so we are hoping to get a larger variety of vendors, not a lot of vendors selling the same stuff.
There has even been some discussion of having an additional much smaller Spring 2020 Show in the Student Union, in addition to our regular larger September 2020 show. This is all in the discussion stage – we will keep you posted as this idea moves along.
The Board paid a deposit for the September 2020 show so there is no possibility that we will lose that date again. We have informed the college we are considering a spring 2020 show but we have not chosen a date or paid a deposit.
Our two new Board members are busy learning their jobs. It’s so good to have some fresh new ideas for our club. Welcome a board Charlie and Merriann! I also want to say “Thank You” to all the other Board members that have volunteered for another year.
Kat Koch, President
