New England Amateur Radio Festival
October 13 & 14, 2017
Deerfield, New Hampshire
In recognition and in celebration of Canada’s 150 anniversary of Confederation we would like to invite all radio amateurs who are Canadian citizens to attend NEAR-Fest XXII this coming October 13th and 14th 2017 at Deerfield NH as our special guests.
If you wish to attend all you need to do is present your valid Canadian passport or other proof of Canadian citizenship to the folks at the gate. We also ask that you display a red maple leaf Canadian flag on your vehicle or at your table should you wish to set up in the flea market.
This invitation is for free admission to the grounds. It does not include parking inside the Fairgrounds (ample free parking just outside the gates) nor does it provide for overnight camping or a chance to win a door or grand prize. Inside parking is available for $10 which includes a flea market selling space. Regular admission tickets are also available at the gate for $10 which include chances to win one of our spectacular door and grand prizes. Camping spaces are $30 a night or $15 for tent sites for $15. Both include electrical hookups.
Hope to see you there with your red maple leaf flags……
Happy 150th, Canada!
