    Hello GIRS Members!

    Fall Fest 2020
    is coming up soon! - November 14th at the Iowas State Fairgrounds, Des Moines

    If you are interested in bringing some of your corals, fish, or other items to Spring Fest, please post in this thread!

    Below are the table fees and guidelines

    GIRS Member Table (for Hobbyists):

    • GIRS Membership dues must be current
    • $35 cash/paypal payment
    • Single tank per table
    • No special table decorations (only those provided by fest coordinator/team)
    • No advertising material, signage, or business cards
    • No "bulk quantities" new equipment or dry goods (i.e. can't bring a stack of items)
    • Can bring personal used equipment or unwanted new equipment / dry goods (i.e. something they bought and don't need, just not multiple items) see Note below
    • Listed on fest promotion posts as a hobbyist
    Payment should be sent to treasurer@greateriowareefsociety.org

    The issues of mask and mask requirements have been asked of the board. As of today, the City of Des Moines does have a mask mandate in place. For the club, this means that we need to post and ask that people coming to the event follow that rule. Once people arrive, they will have the ability to take a free mask if they would like and we will work to make it clear that it is a city requirement.

    Okay, found out you are going to be requiring healthy people to wear mask. As much as I'd like to do a show I can't take part in this. I would like a refund as I won't be attending unless mask are no longer required. Jfarmer271@yahoo.com
