BOUNCE YOUR VOICE OFF THE MOON
Saturday and Sunday from 1PM to 5PM at the Diana site 2 tenths of a mile walk down the road from the InfoAge main building. ISEC has many exhibits to see and learn about:
We are *not* doing a swap meet at our event. There just aren’t enough volunteers and the show would be spread out too much. We are however doing consignment for anyone wishing to buy or sell items.
I’ve had some people who were having trouble finding the information about consignment on the website. So I added links to the website, but for convenience here is the main website for VCF East consignment. It’s helpful for us if everyone to filled out the Consignment Sale Sheet before they arrive.
Here are the instructions for filling it out. Here is an example sheet to understand how to fill it out.

We’ve been asked about the Covid-19 protocols at VCF East 2021. Please forgive the delay. We waited to see how things would be as we got closer to the show. We have decided that the following policies and protocols will be followed:
InfoAge policy is that vaccinated people are not required to wear a mask, but unvaccinated people *must* wear a mask while indoors and maintain social distancing outdoors.
However as per CDC guidelines we strongly recommend that everyone wear a mask indoors and socially distance outdoors.
New Jersey does not have a requirement for proof of vaccination for indoor events.
We expect to keep open where practical every available door and window to provide increased ventilation in indoor spaces.
The State of New Jersey does not have occupancy limitations at this time.
For those that don’t feel comfortable coming in person, we are working on a streaming option as well as Discord channels for those wanting to participate from a distance. Please check on our virtual show page (https://vcfed.org/vcf-east-virtual-show/) for updates as they are created.
