VCF East 2020 Update
What a difference 24 hours makes!
Since last night's announcement, we have now seen various state governments
recommend cancelling all large gatherings in light of the "continued
outbreak and to aggressively mitigate the spread of the virus." in the
words of the Governor of NJ.
As such, VCF East 2020 will be POSTPONED (not cancelled) until October 10th
through 12th, 2020. This is Saturday through Monday, Columbus Day.
Over the past week we have been actively working on backup plans for VCF
East in the event it had to be postponed, with several different
contingencies planned based on different circumstances that might arise.
While it is unfortunate that such a circumstance has occurred, the VCF
Steering Committee is pleased to inform everyone that we have secured the
dates mentioned above, along with the needed space at the Infoage Science
and History Museums.
Additionally, we have been reaching out to our Keynote Speakers and class
proctors to lock in their availability. We have confirmed that Bill Mensch,
Michael Tomczyk, Bil Herd and David Murray have all confirmed their
availability as of today. We will update the website, class schedules, etc.
over the coming week to reflect the changes in date as well as filling in
who can and cannot attend based on the new days of the event.
While prep for VCF East has continued in earnest over the past few weeks, a
potential change of dates has always been on the list of items to deal
with. It is unfortunate that the event needed to be rescheduled, but with
the cooperation of our members, keynote speakers, exhibitors and attendees,
along with the great coordination we've had with Infoage, we are confident
we can help keep people safe and healthy and have a fantastic event, just a
few months later than originally anticipated.
Please stay tuned for more updates as the days and weeks go by, and please,
stay safe and healthy!
