Bill and all,
Jeff has verbalized what I was thinking. To help people make a vacation of the two events, we need a list of fun places to visit - places geeks like us would find interesting - to fill the intervening week. The first thing I found is the Marshall Steam Museum (10 minutes from Kennett Square). Altoona and Gallitzin may be too far.

Making lemonade out of lemons... wouldn't it be an incentive for those
regular visitors who travel long ways to to attend VCF East to also hang
around the area for less than an additional week to attend Kennett Classic?
Especially those who would would be flying in and might justify staying a
few extra days to do so. Why pay for two sets of round trip flights if they
wanted to go to Kennett Classic, too?

Not trying to incite violence here. It's just a thought.
