Refund & 2020 Hat, Pin,
and Belt Buckle Information
Updated April 28, 2020

The Gathering of the Green Board and Visit Quad Cities, our registration and event partner, would like to thank everyone for their patience as we worked through a difficult process to provide accurate refunds to your credit cards. The process to credit everyone began today, and we should be able to complete all refunds by Friday, May 1st. We anticipate that you will see the credit on your card statements as early as 3-5 days after we refund your card. If you do not have access to view your account online, it will appear on the next statement.

Please note that any hats, pins, and belt buckles will be deducted from your refund amount along with a $5 per household shipping fee. All merchandise will be shipped to the address used during registration, and the anticipated shipping date will be between June 1 and June 15 due to State of Illinois COVID-19 restrictions on accessing the merchandise in our office. Souvenir programs will begin shipping May 5th from a mail house in Iowa, and we will be mailing one per registered attendee.

Thank you to all who generously contacted us the last 2 weeks of March to donate some or all of your fees. Those that had merchandise, will receive the merchandise, and we will not charge shipping fees to those who donated.

If you have any questions on the refund amounts you receive, please contact Lynn Hunt at after your credit appears. Please allow 30 days from April 28th to see the credit, as postings may vary per bank.

We look forward to staying in touch through social media and our Gathering of the Green Facebook page, while we plan for new dates for the next Gathering Conference. Stay safe and well! We will see you all soon.

The Gator raffle took place on Sunday, March 29

The winner is Donald Lippold of Minonk, Illinois


The Gathering of the Green Board of Directors and planning team are were truly honored and appreciative of an effort lead by Travis Jorde (Jorde's Decals). Back in mid-March, Travis shared his plan to donate his vendor fees back to the organization in lieu of a refund. The groundswell of responses from vendors and attendees who are doing the same has been incredible.

Thanks for every donation! Thank you all for registering, donating, trying to bring a new friend this year, and for being loyal attendees. The "Gathering of the Green" community is the reason we produce this conference, and why we are so disappointed that we didn't get to sit down and talk tractors this week. Donation info: If you missed the post and would like to donate your conference registration, banquet, or vendors fees, we can still take the support.

Please continue to share information from our Facebook page, and email us if you would like to contribute.

If you have any questions about your intended donation or the processing of your refund, please email us at or

Future Dates: At this time, we do not have a future date to share, and will be working on that over the next couple of weeks. Please visit our website and Facebook Page often to check on the plans. We will add information to those areas first, then send out an email announcement. In the meantime, stay well.
