    Sadly, Type3Toys will have to cancel MM This Year.

    As many of you know, I contacted covid 19 and was extremely sick. Today, 30 days later I am feeling better. But due to the NJ shut down, being out of work from mid March till June at the earliest, I will be unavailable to attend megomeet this year. After discussing this at length with my wife, between fear of being reinfected and not being able to afford the trip, I will need to be here working if at all possible. I have not received a stimulus check nor am I eligible for unemployment at this time. I'm sorry.

    That is completely understandable. I'm just happy you pulled through the infection. I've already had some coworkers who had the virus, sink right back into it again by not resting for long enough. This is no joke. I truly want to go to the megomeet and I live in Columbus but I'm thinking of staying home myself.

    Keeping yourself safe is the MOST important thing John. We've talked about it Also having Covid 19 myself...even if it was postponed I probably would not attend because there is no guarantee that I can't get this again. It really is the worst 4+ weeks of your life. I can second what John has gone through.

    Not to sound like an idiot, but is it possible to postpone megomeet until later in the year like around the fall (October)? maybe by that time things will be back to normal.

    Totally understood. As someone with family members with a compromised immune system, even if the Meet goes on as planned, I don't know if I will personally feel comfortable taking the risk of getting in a large gathering of people, and potentially bringing the virus home. Other's mileage may vary, but as much as I love the camaraderie, and the toys, it's honestly not worth the risk, to me.

    Dude! You've got to take care of you and yours. No apology is ever necessary for that. Here's to hoping you get some much needed money coming in soon.
