NEW ENTRANCE POLICY FOR EVERYONE COMING TO CLUB SHOWS !!

The T.C.S.C.C. wants to thanks everyone who has been coming to the shows at Valley West Mall over the last few months.  Just a tremendous turnout.  HOWEVER, with that success, comes a large  issue.  That being the amount of parking spaces available at the mall for regular customers of the malls merchants. .  The club officers, along with the Valley West Mall, have decided that starting with the April 2nd show ( and all future shows), that everyone coming to the show MUST enter the show from the back side (west side) of the mall.  Everyone, ( dealers and customers) must park and enter thru the back door.  That door will be marked with a “Bright Orange” sign.  Signs will be posted on the front doors entering the hallway of the mall that everyone coming to the show, must enter thru the backside.  There is NO exceptions to this new policy.  To get to the backside, go past the Dollar Store, Subway and the vacant Goodyear store to the end.  Turn right at the corner and then turn right at Dunkin Donuts.  Continue down the backside of the mall, and enter thru the door that is marked for the show entrance.  Again, EVERYONE MUST PARK THEIR VEHICLE IN THE BACK OF THE MALL.  There is over 150 parking spots near the entrance door.  Hopefully, this will make the parking in the front better for all the tenants of the mall.   We must do our part to help with this issue, and continue having shows at Valley West Mall.

SPECIAL NOTICE TO ALL CURRENT CLUB DEALERS, AS WELL AS FUTURE ONES.

Effective immediately, all dealers MUST have a valid Minnesota State Sales Tax Number!!

You can apply for a Minnesota State Sales Tax Number on the internet, or with a phone call, if you do not currently have one. Here is the link, and there is a phone # as well.

 

Registering Your Business | Minnesota Department of Revenue (state.mn.us)       651-282-5225

 

The Sales Tax Number must be yours, with your name or business name.  ex:  Bob Jones may not bring in a Sales Tax Number with the name of Todd Smith

on it!! 

if you do not have a valid Minnesota State Sales Tax Number, you will NOT be allowed to set up.  No exceptions.

 

DEALER TABLE CANCELLATIONS: Any dealer who cancels the show , for any reason on Wednesday or later of the show week, will be charged a fee of $10.00 per table. That amount WILL be paid before they are allowed to set up at a future show.   If a dealer cancels prior to Wednesday, no penalty fee will apply.    We order the tables and chairs for the show on Wednesday, so that is the reason for the Wed. cutoff.  Hope all are understanding of this.

TCSCC Charity Program Each month, two new organizations will be recognized and receive donations on behalf of the club. Any current club member can submit an organization for consideration. The only stipulation is that it NOT be a national organization (Cancer Society, ALS, etc.). The purpose is to help Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa organizations in need of some financial assistance for their programs. If you would like to submit an organization, or need more information, please contact Dave Bonde (dandcbonde@charter.net) or 1217 Central Ave., Red Wing, MN. 55066. Information needed is: the name of the organization, purpose for consideration, a contact person with phone number or email address.
