Escape to New Hampshire!
« on: February 12, 2003, 01:33:22 pm »

The LPNH Welcome to the Granite State Committee is pleased to announce a summer "Escape to New Hampshire" getaway vacation to promote the Free State Project in NH. The event will be open to everyone. The common bond will be an interest in the FSP and an interest in learning more about the benefits and advantages of choosing NH as the free state.

To be held June 21-29, 2003 at Rogers Camping Resort and Motel in Lancaster, NH, the getaway has been designed to be a week of fun, relaxation, information sharing, and new friendships. The Welcome to the Granite State Committee is eager to show off our beautiful state to Free State Project members and just as eager to meet in-staters wishing to learn more about the FSP. We'll be featuring at least one guest speaker from the FSP Board of Directors and LPNH gubernatorial candidate John Babiarz, and are in the process of lining up additional speakers.

We invite freedom-loving people from all over the country to join us for nine days of summer fun and relaxation. Rogers Resort is the largest and best-equipped campground in New Hampshire. There's also a 52-room motel for those who prefer not to camp. Amenities abound at this delightful resort, including: heated swimming pools, hot tub, 400-foot water slide, miniature golf, tennis, shuffleboard, horseshoe pits, playgrounds, softball, volleyball, basketball, a giant game room, grocery store, coffee shop and laundromat.

The resort affords beautiful mountain views, including Mt Washington. Only a few miles away, Weeks State Park has a lookout tower offering 360-degree views of the spectacular White Mountain region. The charming town of Lancaster offers shops, restaurants, a weekend flea market, antique shops and a maple sugar museum. Guests arriving from the south will have the pleasure of driving through the beautiful Franconia Notch State Park and viewing our state symbol: The Old Man of the Mountain.

Theme parks within an hour's drive of Lancaster may appeal to those attending with children: Polar Caves, Storyland, Heritage USA, Santa's Village and Clark's Trading Post. For those who enjoy shopping, tax-free North Conway offers over 200 factory outlet stores and is about an hour's drive from Lancaster.

We'll be planning various events according to popular demand. Possibilities include an event at one of the gun or archery clubs in the area, guided hiking trips for all ability levels, a trip up the Mount Washington auto road, aerial sightseeing tours of the area, fishing, ATV rides, jet skiing, balloon rides, bonfires, fireworks, cocktail parties, a lobster bake and barbecues. Activities will also be available for those with children.

Don't miss out on this fun-filled event! Visit http://www.RogersCampground.com or call 603-788-4885 for reservations. Be sure to mention you are with the Free State Project group. We will be there to host the entire nine days, but come for as much time as you'd like. If you have any questions, please e-mail the Welcome to the Granite State Committee at fsp-nh@lpnh.org.

I forgot to mention - if and when you make your reservations, please let us know about it at fsp-nh@lpnh.org. We want to plan some BBQs and a Lobster/Clambake, and need to know approximately how many people we will be planning for.

Thanks!

  I actually don't believe in vacations, seem like a waste of time, but this is a great idea. Trying to get 23-29th off.

   Michelle, I was able to get it off and will be there. Why are there not more responses to this topic? This is a great opportunity for us to get together.

That is great news vermass!! We're keeping a list of people who will be attending. Please make sure to go over and sign in at http://www.lpnh.org/escape.htm  We're hoping to keep a fairly accurate count so we know how many to plan for (food and things like that - we plan to host at least two meals).

Anyone thought of seeing if we can get Gary Nolan to attend? I checked his site, and his schedule for then is not announced yet...

Pretty exciting!  Wish I could be there to meet the governor.  Looks as if I may be speaking to the Texas LP convention that weekend, but Elizabeth will be in NH.

  I will be having surgery the 18th of June and recovery time is 2 weeks. I had changed my vacation around so that I could go to the get-together on the 21st, three days post surgery. My Doctor says no way, too risky, I'll bust open. He doesn't want me working or working out or doing much of anything for 2 weeks! I need the surgery, so regreatfully I won't be able to attend.

Count me in!  Do look forward to meeting you folks, but life is a bit up side down for me right now,  hello real world!

Hope to be able to do the whole week, but not sure now if that will be possible.  

Would love to meet Elizabeth and Tim, but currently leaning to the Governor Benson end of things if I can't do it all.

Working on a plan, but you know how that is :-\.  Once the clouds clear should have a better idea, but count me in!

   I was thinking I might be able to make a day trip to the Escape! I should be OK to drive. I want to be there the 22nd to hear the speakers. What time are things set to start and where will they be held? Michelle, do you think this is feasable?

Hi Vermass,

I think a day trip is *very* feasible. How far is the drive for you to get to Lancaster? That drive through the mountains to Lancaster is absolutely gorgeous, so even if you could only make it for part of the day you will have a really enjoyable Sunday drive. I love that part of the state. Whenever I need to get away from it all, that is where I head.

 Hi Michelle and lib40, I go to the Whites at least once every two years, sometimes more than once a year. You do not have to tell me it's BEAUTIFUL. It's likley the most picture-perfect place in the lower 48 (IMO). It's about a 2 1/2 to 3 hour drive from the Springfield MA area where I live. If I can travel I will be there. Pain and swelling will be the deciding factors!
