NH and Northern New England
« on: March 31, 2004, 05:35:16 pm »

Hi folks,

I've been put in charge of the local group for the upper half of New England. The mailing list for it is NE-FSP@yahoogroups.com, please join in if you like. I will try to check this forum weekly.

Now that the weather is warming up, we can start planning some social events and outreach.

There are a few confirmed events, including the Porcupine Fest in June in Lancaster, NH. If you missed the Escape last year, you'll probably want to go to the Fest. If you did go to Escape, come up again and relive the good times! Tim Condon is organizing the Fest, so contact him for details.

Jason Sorens will be speaking at the NHLA Liberty Dinner on June 25. Detail at http://www.nhliberty.org

Amanda Phillips will be speaking at the VT LP convention on April 17. Porcupine Hardy Macia is running for governor. I'm sure he would appreciate your support. :)

We have the Porcupine Lunch Club at Milly's Tavern in Manchester every Saturday at Noon. The Porcupine Dinner Club at Martha's Exchange in Nashua, Saturdays at 6:30pm.

If anyone in ME or VT is working on something, please let me know.

There are some even "more local" groups, at least in NH. Justin Somma is organizing the Monadnock Porcupines (southeast NH). We almost have a Seacost group as well.

Ideally, I'd like to have a "coordinator" for each of the 3 states and regional/county organizers below them. If anyone is interested in these positions, please contact me.

Thanks,
Rich Tomasso

Porcupine Picnic on June 19
« Reply #1 on: May 24, 2004, 07:47:13 pm »

Porcupine Picnic

Come one, come all! Mark your calendar for June 19th and join the Seacoast Porcupines group for a lunchtime picnic at the ocean. The event will be held at Odiorne Point State Park in Rye, NH at 12 noon.

We will be having our regular monthly meeting there while watching the big ships coming in and out of Portsmouth Harbor. Bring a picnic lunch, come meet your Seacoast porcupine neighbors, and find out what this active group is planning next!

Odiorne Point State Park http://www.nhstateparks.org/ParksPages/Odiorne/Odiorne.html is one of New Hampshire's gems. Odiorne Point offers beautiful views of the ocean and beaches; the Isles of Shoals can be seen far out in the Atlantic. An extensive network of trails leads through the woods to the rocky and sandy beaches along the ocean and the harbor. The Seacoast Science Center, which is located in the park, has exhibits relating to the natural and human history of Odiorne and the Seacoast area. For those brave enough to take a swim after the meeting, Wallis Sands State Beach is only 1 mile south on Route 1A.

Directions:
Take Interstate 95, US Route 4, or the Spaudling Turnpike to the Portsmouth traffic circle. From there, drive 2 miles south on US Route 1 to Elwyn Road on the left. Just before Elwyn road, a sign will say "To Beaches". An Exxon station is on the corner. Take a left onto Elwyn road and proceed 1.4 miles to Foyes corner and the stop sign. After stopping, go straight through, crossing Sagamore Road, onto Pioneer Road (Route 1A). Proceed 1.8 miles on Pioneer Road (which becomes Ocean Road) to the Odiorne State Park main entrance on the left.
There is a $3 per-visitor fee; children under 12 are free. Ask the person at the gate for the "Free State Project" group and they will direct you to our picnic area. We hope to see you all there!

There is a moving and housing topic on the forum, plus the movingtonh yahoogroup. Those would be my guess as the top two places to get in touch with people looking for help.

185 Main St.

As downtown as it gets -- in Nashua.  
I seem to remember that the Boston Area Linux Users meet there too....

I cannot speak to whether the meetings are still going on.

To the best of my knowledge, those meeting don't happen anymore, however the Merrimack Porcupines meet the 4th Saturday of every month in Manchester......and well also know you are always welcome at the Seacoast Porcupine meeting 3rd Saturday of each month! :)

Vermont Citizens for Property Rights meeting
« Reply #7 on: March 07, 2005, 02:51:24 pm »

I'll be speaking at the Vermont Citizens for Property Rights meeting at Charlmont Restaurant just north of Morrisville, VT on Saturday March 19 at 1 PM. I also spoke to CPR in 2003, when Vermont was still under consideration, and talked about some of the things Free Staters would do for property rights in Vermont if the state were chosen. This time I'll be telling them why they need to get out of VT and move to NH. :)

Yes, the Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee Local Group, which I used to lead, is now run by Jeremy Robert Furbish. The groups email list is dartmouth-porcs@yahoogroups.com. There are about 25-30 porcupines in that area.

Hello, my name is Stone Scogin.

I was wondering if anyone knows of any cheap housing in New Hampshire that will be available next summer.

I'm going to be attending school at Marlboro College in Vermont as a freshmen next year, and figured it'd be cheaper staying in New Hampshire for the summer than going back to New York, and I'll be moving to New Hampshire after I complete my degree at Marlboro (or possibly sooner if I can find a cheap way to get back and forth). 

So if anyone has any information regarding good places to live on the Western part of New Hampshire that would be fantastic.

Thanks,
Stone
