You can always direct them to sending e-mail to swapmeet at vcfed.org to
answer questions.

Those coming to the swap meet will not be required to pay for entry to the
museums. However those paying to the museums can go to the swap meet too.
I can't control those going to the swap meet from going to the museums too.
Obviously they should pay, but I will be paying InfoAge a minimum fee as
well as a percentage of profits for renting out the rooms on the campus.
The museums open at 12PM, but most people still think the museum hours are
1PM since they only changed a few weeks ago.
The swap meet starts at 8AM and will be mostly over by the time the museums
The Sea Cadets will be helping me with controlling the gate, parking lot,
inside the campus and helping people to find out where they are going and
direct them to the correct spot.
They will be stationed around campus helping me.
Once the main (small) parking lot fills, then they will be directed to park
at the large parking lot across from Broodale.
I've been organizing the logistics behind the scenes for the last few
months and finalizing details soon.
Right now the plan is that those who pre-register will be put in 9032-A
first (big open room where we used to have our repair workshops).
9032-A will be the VCF main desk for taking payments from vendors, helping
those organizing and selling VCF swag.
When 9032-A fills up, they will be put into the dining room up the ramp in
If that fills up, then they will be put into the women's bunk room in
If that fills up, then we will allow people to park on the grass near
9032-A and other areas if necessary.
We will also be selling hamburgers, hotdogs, cheese pizza, drinks such as
coffee, soda, water, hot chocolate. The Sea Cadets have volunteers to help
me with this. This will be sold in 9010-C which is the cafeteria.

 Please let me know if you have any more questions.
