Be sure to register early if you are wanting to attend gin school this year!  Due to federal Covid restrictions placed on USDA employees, each of the schools will be limited to 50 students per level, and any local Covid restrictions will be followed.  The schools will also be a little shorter this year, following a two-day schedule.

There will be no on-site registration, so please register ahead of time here:  Gin School and Ginner Certification: NCGA (

Finally, the Lubbock gin school will be held at the TTU Fiber and Biopolymer Research Institute, not at the Gin Lab in Lubbock.  The address for the center is 1001 E Loop 289, Lubbock, TX 79403.
