Big thanks to you, Chris F., and Todd G. for representing us there! Generally speaking how did it go?


I feel that it was a huge success. At least 20,000 people attended according to the coordinators, possible many more because they gave away 5,000 free tickets to non-profit groups that weren't counted in the official total.

Our booth was one of the most interesting in my opinion and was always very crowded. It seemed to be of interest to old and young alike. We had a few very nice compliments. A teacher told me she thought what we were doing was very important, that the next generation needs to learn the history.

We could have easily utilized an additional table, both to spread the equipment out more and to add a couple items. If the opportunity arises again, we should definitely participate at this event. I noted people attending from NY, NJ, Harrisburg, Pittsburgh, Connecticut, Delaware, and other non-local areas. I think we got a lot of exposure.

Personally, I was thrilled to be able to participate and represent VCF, and share our hobby with people, particularly young kids.
