rooms.” The hotel has tables available for $24.00 (plus tax) each for length of stay. Please bring

your own table covers and/or skirting unless you would prefer the hotel to furnish white tablecloths.

The tables are 30 inches wide by 72 inches long.

Individuals Displays

You are encouraged to set up a display table. Full table displays are requested with identification

requested as education is one of the keys to enjoying our glass passion. Choose your own theme.

Please indicate on your registration form if we should reserve a display table for you as our available

space permits only 19 display tables. Tables are 30 inches wide by 72 inches long. You may bring

your own table covers and skirting or the hotel will provide them. Set up will be Friday at 7:00 am to

9:00 am in main Display room. For security purposes, plan to turn in a list of your display glass

before your display is set up.


We will have Silent Auctions for a few items and our Second Annual Raffle.
