    We will also have GIRS T-shirts for sale at the event. We have some from our 15th Anniversary last year as well as a few other Vintage (collector?) t-shirts.

    The "bottom" section is for our salt tables. If anyone has input or special requests for placement just let me know. Trying to get this finalized in the next 48 hours.

    Raffles are separate. Can't combine because of profit/not for profit status.

    I believe that there is parking just to the west of the building. Not far at all.

    The list of Raffle prizes has started. Rather than blast this page with all the raffle prizes, a separate thread has been created listing the rules that we have to follow regarding the raffle and then pictures of the raffle items.

    Not seeing the price at the door for non members. Assuming this year non member significant others still pay? Also can they get in with a member at 10:30?
     
  19. Thank you to all of the vendors, GIRS people and ceaich aquatics for putting this on! We had a good time, came home with some awesome stuff, and got to talk to some fun people!
