GO: The Yankee Pole Cat Insulator Club will be sponsoring a Fall 2020 Swap on Saturday October 24. The swap is being held at the Manchester (CT) Land Conservation Trust Bush Hill Farm property.

If you are planning on attending, please do not arrive before 8. This is strictly a "bring your own everything" event. Due to the current situation with COVID, the club will not be providing anything in the way of food or drink. There will be no club provided coffee, donuts, lunch, cold drinks. You are welcome to bring whatever for your own personal consumption. We ask that you DO NOT bring anything to share. There is a port-o-potty available up at the front barn. If you are planning on coming, I STRONGLY ask you to adhere to the current State of Connecticut rules for gatherings. Maintain a 6 foot distance even with this being an outside event. If you need to be closer, wear a mask. Bring your hand sanitizer and/or wipes. We all know we pick up and look at the insulators and put them back down - this can spread germs. So use your sanitizer/wipes after visiting a table where you "browse". In the unlikely event of bad weather, the rain date is the next day - Sunday October 25. If there is any doubt, please check you email or the Yankee Pole Cat Facebook page. Or you can call me. If you need more information, please contact JOHN RAJPOLT (203) 261-1190. E-Mail:
