While we were holding some hope that Tucson would be ‘normal’, it is not to be. This week the Tucson Gem and Mineral Society announced that the 2021 show (affectionately referred to as the ‘main’ show) has been cancelled. They promise that the 2022 will be a show-stopper.
The City of Tucson has put out guidelines for the various other shows around the city and most of them plan to go forward. The unfortunate part is that the dynamics of these shows will be lost due to travel restrictions for the overseas dealers and a limit on the number of people in the hotel rooms and other areas.
As for KRISTALLE, we will continue to operate out of our unit on Lester Street, as will all of the other dealers in the Sun Gem units. The other venues along Lester Street will also be open for business. Lester Street has become ‘the mineral district’ and this is where the action will be as well as the huge social aspect that will be a great part of the activity.
The Fine Mineral Show at the Westward Look is still not clarified at this point but we will keep you posted. EDIT: Fine Mineral Show has been cancelled.
We look forward to seeing you in Tucson’s 2021 ‘COVID style’…
Take care, safe travels to all.
