    The ITA is aware and sensitive to the current concerns with Corona Virus but wanted to assure our exhibitors and participants that we we are confident in moving forward with our event.

    Both the ITA and our venue have protocols in place for the safety of participants and other patrons within the venue. This includes extensive precautions in food prep areas, and lots of sanitizing and handwashing stations.

    Our convention center has a group of restrooms right by the doors that will allow for frequent handwashing as well within our event area.

    Most importantly our bar will be stocked and ready for everyone to come enjoy themselves for another great year of friendship, fellowship, and artistry! Out of state folks DO NOT need to be ITA members to participate in the seminars and competition.

    ***The only change so far is that Cory Caruthers will be filling in as bird judge for Jonathan Wright.

    Please call me with any ?s or concerns 319-331-7126

    Thank goodness someone has enough sense to realize that the majority of this corona crap isn't enough to stop your show! I am so sick of hearing the media hype this crap up scaring people to death when in reality it isn't even as bad as the flu.

    It’s going to happen to all the shows probably for the next two months. Indeed we’re a tough bunch but those that work at these centers aren’t like us folks. They don’t mount animals lol
