2018 Year-End Banquet

November 10th - Year-End Banquet!

Join us at Indian Creek Steakhouse in Caldwell on November 10th to celebrate another awesome show year with Gem State! We’ll be honoring our year-end award winners, recognizing our sponsors, and having a great evening out with our members.

The Meal

Just like last year’s banquet, Indian Creek is providing their full menu, so instead of paying a flat fee ahead of time, you’ll order what you like and pay for your own meal. GSSHA is picking up the tab for gratuity*.

*except on alcohol–please tip your bartender for your drinks!

The Auction

We’ll be auctioning off items generously donated by members, sponsors, and the community. This auction helps us keep putting on our series of spring clinics and summer shows.

Donations needed! Your generous donation helps make our auction a success. Please fill out this easy form describing your auction item. Thank you!

The Schedule

 5:00 PM: GSSHA Board Meeting (open to the public–join us!)

6:00 PM: Drinks

7:00 PM: Dinner

After dinner: Auction

After auction: Awards


Please RSVP by Monday, November 5th.

If you’re planning to donate an auction item, please let us know on your RSVP form or fill out the Donate form by 11/9–while we appreciate all donations, we want to make sure to advertise your contribution and thank you for your generosity!
