All proceeds from the Iron-In-The-Hat are used by ABANA for Affiliate member scholarships. The Iron-In-The-Hat fundraiser is key to the success of our scholarship program. It provides the necessary funds to help educate and train scholarship participants and enhance blacksmithing. By including all ABANA Affiliate members in our SUPER DRAWING, we can make our 2016 Conference the most successful scholarship program yet!

If you are not near an affiliate association you can buy your Super IITH tickets below.
*We will send you your half in the mail, and put your name on the other half (drawing side of each ticket) and enter them in the appropriate drawing box at the conference for you.
