Statehouse Activism

Do you want to hold signs for liberty candidates?
Do you want to put out flyers for liberty candidates?
Do you want to vote for marijuana the year decrim finally passes?
Do you want to fill a seat that would otherwise be occupied by an anti-liberty rep?
Do you want to limit government’s influence in your life with the simple push of a button?
Do you want to be a wrench in the works?

If left unfettered, government will always expand, consuming your liberties bit by bit. Are you ready to play a part? …Are you ready to TAKE ACTION?

This is where the revolution begins.

There’s a free lunch, too!

Fall

It’s always beautiful in the lakes region but fall is rather colorful. It seems like you can get a calendar shot from anywhere you go in the area these days. These pictures are from Wolfeboro on October 26 shot with a simple ‘point and shoot’ camera.

Our November meeting will be on the 21st.

We will be assisting Shire Sharing to deliver Thanksgiving meals on Sunday the 22nd. Send them a donation if you can or join us to help with deliveries.

Lastly, a note for those who want to stay in touch without Facebooking, we have a group on Yahoo for e-mail communications: LakesRegionPorcupines@yahoogroups.com.

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!

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!

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.
