*Vending: Please register for your vendor booth asap. Our space this year is slightly smaller. Please finish the registration process as soon as possible by using the same link to the form above. Vendor set-up is 10/10/14 from 4pm to 7:30pm. If you have questions regarding the venue or vending contact Karin.
*Food Vendor: We are searching far and wide for food options so attendees will not have to leave the Show hall for grub.
*Hotel information: We have several hotels we have been able to block rooms at, please visit GCFA.COM for much more detail!
*Raffle donations: If you plan to make a raffle donation with a value of $50 or more, contact Robin Pikscher with a description of the donation, and whether the item will be mailed or brought with you to the show, as this will qualify you for a ½ page ad in our show book. She must receive this information and your ad before 9/1/14 for the donation to qualify. Half page ad specs are: 5” tall & 7.5” wide.
*Picture Contest: The picture contest is a fun way to have the babies you can’t bring represented or just to show off your favorite fur-baby pictures. Please either email the pictures to RobinP.GFSOE@gmail.com or bring them with you. Size 4”X6” preferable, but not required. $5 per entry and $.50 per vote—unlimited stuffing of the ballot box acceptable! Ribbons for 1st through 5th will be given. This is just another way to help raise money for our shelter ferrets!
Our deepest gratitude for attending and helping us make this a fun and profitable show for the GCFA shelter ferrets.
