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.
