Important NEAR-Fest IV NEWS!!!
« on: September 03, 2008, 08:40:32 AM »
I have good news and it's official.  We will be able to continue to camp out Friday night inside the Fairgrounds.  In addition we are still able to use gas grills and barbeques for outdoor cooking as well. 

However there will be some new fire safety policies instituted which will be strictly enforced as part of my promise to the Fair Association Board of Directors for allowing us to continue these activities.  It was made clear that these privileges could be withdrawn at any time if we fail to meet the standards set by the Deerfield Fair Association regarding fire safety.

The NEAR-Fest Sergeant-at-Arms, Paul DePetrillo, W1PRA will be responsible for enforcing the new Fire Safety policies.  Two former Concord NH Firerighters will join his staff as Fire Wardens.  All attendees are strongly advised to read the announcement regarding the new policies to ensure they understand them.  Everyone entering the grounds with a vehicle will be given a printed copy of these and so ignorance will be no excuse.  In fact, there will be ZERO TOLERANCE when it comes to violating the new fire safety policies.  Offenders will be told to leave the grounds immediately without warning.

Thank you all for your cooperation.
