LibertySpot 2015

You know there is liberty to be found here.
You know there is liberty to be found here.

Have you ever thought about what it’d be like to invite the entire NH liberty movement to Funspot – the largest arcade in the world – and play video games, indoor mini golf, bowl, darts, pool, bingo, drink, eat and have fun for hours? Let’s do this!

Mark your calendar April 18, 2015! We’ll start with our regular Lakes Region Porcupines meeting at the New Hong Kong Buffet at noon and then move on to Funspot from 2:00 until 11:45!

It turns out, the founder/owner of Funspot, 84-year old Bob Lawton, is a big fan of liberty and his favorite book is Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged! When Funspot turned on their new digital sign in the 1980’s, the first message Bob put on it was “Who is John Galt?” Did you know Bob was the State Rep who sponsored the bill to put “Live Free or Die” on our license plates?

To make this day even more epic, everybody’s encouraged to wear their favorite liberty gear! Wear an FSP tshirt, an NHLA polo, a Mises bracelet, a Ron Paul hat, a gun rights tshirt, whatever you want! You’ll be surrounded by fans of liberty!

Plus, we’ll have a special table with some coupons:

$20 for 125 arcade tokens
$10 large cheese pizza
$11 large pepperoni pizza
$2.50/game on the new indoor mini golf course
$4/game of bowling

Bingo starts at 6:45pm in the building next door to Funspot. The D.A. Long Tavern, the bar inside Funspot, opens at 1pm on Saturday (only ages 21 and up can enter the Tavern and drinks must stay in the Tavern).

Come out and have fun with other NH liberty activists! Join and share our event! See ya there!

Thank you Vince Perfetto (101 Reasons Film) for creating a great day of fun!

On The Agenda

Our monthly meeting is coming up Saturday March 21. We’ll have a few thing to discuss over lunch;

  • Planning for our Beach Day this summer.
  • We’ll soon be ready for our spring cleaning on our adopted highway.
  • There is another plan for a big day at Funspot.
  • Welcome home plan for Firecracker Joe.

Our meetings are rather informal gatherings which run for an hour or two. We’re looking forward to seeing you.

Save the Date

Mark you calendar, July 25, 2015, the Lakes Region Porcupines will be hosting a beach party at Weirs Beach in Laconia, NH.

We're having a party!
We’re having a party!

A festival/celebration for liberty activists in New Hampshire. Activities include sunbathing, swimming, hiking, and a cook-out hosted by the Lakes Region Porcupines!

We are looking for anyone who wants to volunteer for a variety of tasks both before and during the event. We are keeping the event local to Weirs Beach, but any and all activities that anyone would like to host are more than welcome. Soon, we will release a map of the area for you to share all over social media.

Come see the beauty of the lakes region, enjoy a day at the beach, and explore the area. You’ll find that the natives are very friendly and liberty minded.

If you’re coming for the weekend, you can catch the fireworks show on Friday night at the Weirs. We’ll have info coming soon on places to stay, including rustic camping for those on a really tight budget.

Stay tuned for updates and additions to the activities offered!

Liberty Forum Tour

It’s coming! Liberty Forum will be here soon, March 5-8, 2015. Liberty Forum is one of two annual events hosted by the Free State Project, the second is PorcFest held in June.

Tour the Lakes Region

This year Liberty Forum moves to Manchester from its previous venue in Nashua, the event has outgrown the Crowne Plaza. The convention draws people from around the country, and beyond, to get a taste of the spirit of liberty that is sparked by the Free State Project.

As Liberty Forum has expanded and people take advantage of the opportunity to visit New Hampshire organizers have incorporated a tour to various areas of the ‘Live Free or Die’ state.  The Lakes Region Porcupines will host our leg of the tour on Monday, March 2, 1:00, at a most unique and interesting venue, Funspot!

You don’t need a ticket to Liberty Forum to take part in the tour stops. Join us to see how liberty is growing in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire.

Winter in the Lakes Region

Some think winter is for hibernating but if you feel the need to shake off the cabin fever, a hike up Mt. Major in Alton will provide you with an awesome view of Lake Winnipesaukee.

While it is not handicap accessible, Mt Major is a fairly easy hike for a person in reasonable condition. It is a very popular hike and can be crowded on weekends and holidays. I prefer a mid-week hike to avoid the crowd.

For those coming to New Hampshire for Liberty Forum, you won’t need much equipment to hike Mt. Major. Hiking always requires proper judgement and preparation. If conditions are reasonable minimal equipment will get you to the top. The trails are well worn and snow is packed down by the stream of hikers.
