71st Year of Madras Rockhound Pow Wow

Cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic

Note from the president

Hello fellow ARPWCA Board and club members, stressful times are still upon us with this coronavirus pandemic

With all the risk of illness that is out there, the Board has voted to cancel our June 25th – 28th 2020 Show
Therefore I am cancelling our June show at this time

Venders have the option to receive a refund for paid ahead stalls or to roll over for the 2021 year

As it turns out, the Fairgrounds are in the process of changing the grounds lay out due to storm damages of the past, this will allow them additional time for their changes

We will have a lot to consider at our Fall Dig in September if it isn't cancelled
