> What is the reason for the shift from Autumn to Spring? And so close to Dayton?
Several reasons. Summer is Jersey short tourist season, which creates
a nightmare for hotel costs, traffic, etc. September is frequently
problematic because of Labor Day, everyone's kids going back to school,
9/11 anniversary, and the Jewish high holidays. October doesn't work
for us because our museum always has a month-long Halloween event.
Winter is generally risky because of weather concerns, nor did we want
to overlap with future VCF West editions. That leaves the springtime.
April here in NJ is all about the Trenton show. So, it's basically May
or nothing for us.
The Dayton hamfest is far away and only affects a few people
overlap-wise who'd have to choose.
