June 7, 2020-
After much discussion, and with much sadness, the Board of Directors has decided to cancel the 2020 Orange Spectacular®. The health and safety of our members, volunteers, exhibitors and guests is our top priority during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Board of Directors also believes this is the best decision for the financial stability of the Club.
We will offer several options for activities that have already began, such as raffle ticket sales, swap meet pre-payments, golf cart rentals, vendor contracts and Show Toy pickup.·
The raffle drawings will be postponed, with approval from the Minnesota Gambling Control Board.
o The 2020 raffle tickets that have been sold will be placed in the raffle drawing that will be held on July 25th, 2021.
o The raffle drawing on July 25th, 2021 will be for the same 1960 Allis-Chalmers D14 Tractor.
o Any Club member with unsold tickets please hand write on the tickets the new drawing date of July 25th, 2021 before selling them. This will help clear up any confusion of the revised drawing date.
o If requested, your 2020 raffle ticket money will be refunded.
Swap meet vendors that pre-paid for 2020 space can have it applied towards the 2021 show or receive a refund, if requested.
Golf Cart rentals will be refunded to those who had prepaid.
Vendors who have pre-paid for vendor space will be refunded.
This year’s Orange Spectacular® Show Toys that were planned to be picked up at the show will be shipped to your address. Any toy orders received after June 14th will have a mandatory $15 shipping fee added to the cost of the toy.
We’ll see you next year at our 30th Annual Orange Spectacular® held July 23, 24 & 25, 2021, when we will also be hosting the national Gathering of the Orange – West
