To make it more fun for this show, there will be a drawing for volunteers at that event. Prize: $250!! Each day you volunteer gets you an entry into that drawing!


All of the hard work required to run this big event is balanced with great camaraderie and networking, lively office discussion, a little or a lot of shopping, great meals plus all the chocolate you can eat! Okay, not that last thing so much but lots of fun and amity, for sure.

It was held over 3 days with 9 rings going each day.  This year we are offering 3 days of competition, with parties and shopping for 3 days plus the load-in day. We are anticipating even greater success at this year’s event, which will be held October 8-10, 2021.
