2nd Notification of Club Early Entry PLEASE READ
« on: August 09, 2023, 08:35:08 PM »
Hello New England Amateur Radio Community!
We are just over two months from the next NEARFEST in Deerfield. As we have gone through the summer, I have been receiving applications from some clubs, some are still outstanding. This is reminder applications are going to be due September 9th, this will give me enough time to get the new passes out to the clubs. Your old club passes are no longer valid. If you are a ?permanent? club, I will send you your new passes. However, I still would like your application to update my records, especially your address and contact information, so I know where to send the passes. Many clubs change officers etc. as years go by.  As a reminder to all the clubs in the early entry program you are required to still purchase your inside parking tickets as well as admission. (Lifetime pass individuals are exempt from this requirement)  The only other thing we ask is that one volunteer from your club be available during the weekend, to assist with the running of NEARFEST. This can be fulfilled in several ways throughout the weekend (IE ticket sales, running of forums, one club takes care of the PA system etc.) or we ask for one volunteer from each club to stay after 2pm on Saturday to help with the clean-up. We also ask that you police your site for trash on Saturday. And please make sure your members who are camping have a camping pass. With more volunteers on hand the easier it is. Mr. Mike and the NEARFEST staff have worked extremely hard to develop a good working relationship with the fairgrounds. Your assistance in leaving it better than how we found it goes a long way into keeping that relationship going forward!  This club pass only gets two vehicles in from your club at 8:00 AM to claim your area. If you are not a:? permanent? club and I do not have an application on file you will not be allowed in at 8:00 am. Those with yearly passes will be valid for this upcoming fest in October plus the 2024 season. If you know of other clubs that would like to participate, we are more than happy to accommodate! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me by email or call/ text 401-473-7784. The list below is of clubs that are all set. If you don?t see your club?s name, please contact me ASAP. If I need your contact info for the permanent clubs, please get a hold of me. I have attached the forms once again for those who still need them.
73 and see you at the fester!
