Hello, fellow fans, and welcome to Shore Leave 41.5: The Virtual Experience!

While we all wish we could be back at the Hunt Valley Inn this weekend and enjoy each other's company, we need to do the responsible thing and stay home.

But that does not mean we can't have some fun anyway. This weekend we have planned a selection of the kind of activities we would normally have at a Shore Leave convention: author panels, science presentations, fan panels, and the masquerade. You can join these virtually via Zoom. Please check our website for the schedule and the instructions on how to join. It's free!

As our authors, scientists, fans, vendors, and staff are eager to showcase all that Shore Leave has to offer, we are extending our activities into this fall and next spring. Keep checking our website for bi-weekend Shore Leave virtual activities. Our Baltimore-area sister conventions Farpoint and Balticon will join us for some of these as well.

Until it is safe to see each other in person, stay healthy, stay safe, stay home, and wear your masks.

And check with our vendors for fannish pandemic gear.
