Title: 2006 Dates?
Post by: aworldnervelink on August 04, 2005, 09:55:29 am
Have the dates been determined for 2006, or is it still an open question? I heard rumors that the FSP had already rented the cabins at the front of the campground. I already have friends asking me about next year, so I was curious.

The 2006 Porc Fest team will determine the dates and locations.  I made reservations at Roger's for some dates that I think would be good, but neither those dates nor that location has been decided on for sure.  When it is, I'm sure an announcement will be made in short order.

Lol.  I doubt we'll move it to the fall (too many folks with kids and classes), but I can see a strong case for it.  Except for the part about freezing your ass off in your tent... ;)

Just wanted to let you all know that we're working on this, calling around to get a good handle on possible locations and dates.  I've gotten a number of emails from folks who want to volunteer, and with any luck, we'll be ready to start defining positions and tasks sometime next month.

For *this* fall, if people want to come up, there's the 3rd party National convention (which the LPNH will be holding their annual state convention at), this month:

10 third parties are expected to be in attendance at the event in Manchester. The Friday night Halloween party is at the NH institute of art... The conference itself runs from Oct 13-16, if anyone's interested!

Hey George!  The lady in charge is looking for suggestions.



 Hey all,

Alright, as the search continues for our specific location and dates, I'd like to get a sense of what attendees from this year really liked or missed having at the festival.  (I'll put in a request here that you not list things you hated--everything was someone's baby, and there's no need to jump on them.  I can make some assumptions based on omission, or, if you're really worked up about something, you can email me at porcfest@freestateproject.org and vent to your heart's content.) 

So what'd you like?  And what would you like to see?  I can't promise that every suggestion will be taken, but it's your party, so I'll aim to please.

Thanks.
Kate

As for what's going on on the underground, I wish you guys the best.  I do also wish, though, that you wouldn't seem to insist on being contrary just for the sake of it.  Alternative options are great, and anyone's free to do what they want.  My job is to make the FSP's official festival worth coming to, and I can't imagine that anyone already has reason to believe that it'll suck.  If you do, the helpful thing would be to tell me, and I've been pretty consistent about asking for input and suggestions.  Oddly, I haven't gotten many from that particular corner...  You can start anytime.  :P

Geez, what are you people, libertarians?  Lol.

It's really Merrimack, halfway between Manchester and Nashua. Only a handful of miles difference. Everything is easy to get to in NH.

Frankly, this seems like an act of aggression to me.  It's one thing to do things you know some members of the FSP leadership aren't going to like, or to choose not to participate in FSP events, or to refuse to vote for your FSP compatriots "on principle". It's another thing entirely to attempt to sabotage what is the biggest social and fundraising event of the FSP each year by holding a competing event at the most likely PorcFest location, at roughly the same time of year, and encouraging FSP members to attend.  That's why I asked on your wiki if there was any info I was missing. I sincerely hope I am misinterpreting this, Russell.   :(

Oops...Have had some planning re the Porc Fest's.  At least my opinion Freedom looses
because we splinter into little..."Hello...we know best groups."

Hello, for the record NH is my home regardless of what happens with the FSP, but also
know I'm in NH because of the light the FSP lit inside me, and for that I will always be
grateful.

And now to the Porc Fest next summer.  Thinking we should be fair and let the FSP folks
lay out there plan.  And on a personal level let my friend Kate lay out her plan before we
star throwing stones!

Crap.  That probably means I'm behind schedule.   :-\

I'm sorry--I'm doing my best to get our dates and location lined up asap; I visited a possible place just yesterday, and it takes some time to get information together.  Obviously, that's one of the costs of considering other campgrounds...  BUT, it won't be much longer, and I hope you'll bear with me.

Lloyd, I knew I was some strange a long time ago.  Before at least half of the Free State signatories were born.  And no, I don't plan to use ipecac, that qualifies as initiation of force and I don't do such things outside of my (sick) imagination.

Kristos, I've got to get out of Jersey.  The place ruins the mind even when the TV is turned off.

Whenever and wherever PorcFest 2006 happens, there _will_ be chili.  If somebody can provide me with a dead moose (or even just a leg quarter) between now and then, I'll be very grateful.  It's a meat I haven't cooked, but I'm not a hunter (yet) and nobody seems to be farming them as a food product.

Mostly just hanging out and shootin the breeze around the campfire. We are not setting up speakers or anything. Shorty Dawkins might be in attendance. :)
If the porcfest is held in a place where the gun nuts can't fire away .... then maybe they will be headed to Rogers with us.

Oh no ..... now am I violating ZAP or something? ;)
I am guessing that porcfest 2006 will be held somewhere other than Rogers and at a different time of year, but we don't know. I am giving people the opportunity to plan.
I am not stealing any of their speakers, nor am I purposely stealing their dates. If porcfest ends up in June at Rogers, then I will have just helped. If not, then I will be giving people options. :)

DaveM - I don't know it all or best. I do know when I will be partying at Rogers next summer. (June 19th-24th) Look forward to seeing you there.  :D

Lol.  Thanks, Ward, for reminding me to find my sense of humor.   ;D 

Lest anyone charge me with planning in secret, here's a little update: I am considering several campgrounds south of the notches, and have been in talks with one in particular regarding availability and pricing.  Unfortunately, as much of the state is a little soggy, they've experienced some flooding of late, and most of their staff has been either handling that or on a resultingly much-deserved vacation.  Thus, I've had to wait to get firm numbers, although I've been assured that I will get some by the middle of next week.  I am also making an effort to see one or two more campgrounds in person over the next 10 days or so. 

As I believe I've said before, I'd be thrilled to get suggestions for possible locations, although obviously the time for a decision is drawing quite near.  If anyone has a great possibility in mind--particularly if you are able to visit it and actually make a case to me (which would certainly help expedite the process)--jump on in.  Also, I did forget that someone had floated the idea of moving the festival to another season.  For this year, at least, not gonna happen.  Campground gods willing, I'd like to go back to late June to put us out of peak season.  Actually, Russell and Kat appear to be lobbying for my absolute first pick for dates, which is slightly ironic.

Torrential rain of rain just following a torrential rain of leaf-peepers is a fair excuse for a vacation.

1)We've been there two years, three counting 'Escape to New Hampshire'  Everything has worked fine.  We have the Rogers people well trained.
2)I understand that in the past, when they looked for another campground, they couldn't find one as big with a motel on sight.
3) No one has come up with a good reason to change.  Hell, no one has come up with any reason to change

Trust me, duly noted.  It's not my mission in life to move the festival; it's my mission in life to have it at the best location possible.  As for the decision-making, while it does come down to me, my major sounding board is Jean--who, if I recall correctly, was there for the entire week.  :P

Post by: jeanius on October 17, 2005, 10:48:21 am
Yes, I was there all week this year.  I had one munchkin with the flu which made me invisible most of the time and sleep deprived all of the time, but I was there all week.

Roger's is a nice location.  It's beautiful, big enough, has an enclosed speakers location and it does have a motel on site. 

We have an elderly class A motorhome and have stayed at many locations across the country.  Rogers is nice but not the best place ever.  I think a lot of the feelings about it are due to experiences we have all had there.  And I strongly suspect that those experiences will be replicated *wherever* we gather. Does anyone truly believe that Roger's is the gate for those memories?  For me, it was hands down the people and conversation.  I have never been more invigorated about achieving liberty and the Free State.

I personally think it would be fun to move the festival periodically.  No, not just move it for movings sake, but there are things to be gained by doing so.  The one location Kate has referred to is *very* nice, more than big enough, nice speaker facility, a couple of additonal rooms if we need them,  in a location with more resources surrounding, etc.  There wouldn't be any compromising on resources in our opinion.  But, it is also good to allow our visitors the option to experience different parts of the state and *also* to let different parts of the state to get to know us.  Even if we go with Roger's this year, it's getting small with respect to facilities and we will outgrow it, if we haven't already.

We all want PF to be a success.  Give Kate a chance to finish up the selection/decision process.  She is being very thoughtful and taking many things into consideration.

Excuse me...a little history lesson for you folks who want everything  yesterday, and think all you need
to do is want and somehow magically it happens? ???

The first Porc Fest...Not you Lloyd cause you were there, but the folks that seem to be doing the most
pissing and moaning...was not even thought of until like December, and the planning didn't start until
January...How do I know?  I was asked by VP Doug Hillman to make it happen! :P  It did happen! ;D

Last years event mostly played off what we did the year before...so that is cool...! :D

Not sure who the folks with the grouch in there pants who insisted we needed a new place? ???

Do believe we should give Kate the opportunity to see if we might have other options.

BTW hey Lloyd...know I share your thought on what the Porc Fest is all about! ;)

As I posted on the Underground forum...

I already had to submit my first two week choice for annual leave for 2006. I chose June 18 - July 1. After the first round of choices, there won't be any more open slots between June 1 and August 15, so this is the only summertime vacation I'll get.

We just looked at a nice used camper trailer; if the price and financing work out, we'll be spending a week in NH during that time. Whether it's the official Porcfest, or the Roger's Freester party, we'll be there! (Mary only gets 40 hours of vacation, but she can schedule her days off to allow 11 days in a row.) We'll need 2-1/2 days driving time on each end, so we're looking at 4-6 days in the Free State, soaking up all that Liberty!   ;D ;D ;D ;D

We will also be visiting other parts of the state, notably the Berlin area (handy from Roger's), and along the MA border between Rindge and Nashua; those are our two options for a transfer with my job. We'll also visit a friend's brother in Bath, and of course we have to make the trip up the Auto Road to see Mt. Washington (weather permitting).

Time permitting, I'd like to hop across the river to Norwich, VT, and possibly to Northfield (the new site of Norwich University). My fraternity (Theta Chi) was founded at Norwich, I'd like to visit the monument to the Old South Barracks. I'll miss our 150th anniversary celebration at Norwich U., but given my druthers, I'd ruther be at the Porc/Freedom fest(s).

Synchronize your watches... countdown commences... now!   ;D ;D ;D ;D

Lordy, I can't wait!

Addendum that I failed to include on the other forum: I'll be bringing plenty of guns and lots of ammo, to have a good variety for whatever classes we teach, or "just shootin" sessions.

Have the dates been determined for 2006, or is it still an open question? I heard rumors that the FSP had already rented the cabins at the front of the campground. I already have friends asking me about next year, so I was curious.

I sure hope it's there next year!

Okay, okay--I'm about to announce dates and location.  Just firming up the last details.  My sincerest apologies for the delay.

So, it's been almost two months... are the final details firmed yet?  I (like I would guess many others) am trying to firm up vacation plans and time off work, as well as making sure we have the money available to make the trip.  The sooner we know the date the easier it will be to make sure we can make it this year.  :)

EDIT:  Ah, I see.  The dates jumped to a different thread... for others who might be similarly confused, here's the link http://forum.freestateproject.org/index.php?topic=11134.0
