Lobstercon2017! campground reservations have now been confirmed! We will be gathering at Thomas Point Beach & Campground on the weekend of July 7, 8 & 9 2017..........
New England’s premiere QRP gathering – a weekend of QRP camping, BBQ eating, operating, socializing, lobster eating, giant kite flying, prize winning, all round great QRP time. A $40.00 registration fee gets you wake-up coffee & donuts ( if you wake up early enough) and 2 GIANT meals on Saturday: a BBQ lunch and FRESH Maine lobster dinner. Lobstercon lobsters are so fresh they are guaranteed to pinch you before they go into the pot (but we keep the rubber bands on 'em for your safety & protection) Pictures of all the fun had by Lobsterconners at previous years events can be found at: www.newenglandqrp.org
Where: Thomas Point Beach & Campground, Brunswick Maine

Registration is $40 per person for all meals & activities on Saturday. Camping is additional and reservations should be made through Thomas Point Beach & Campground. Don't forget to tell the Thomas Point Beach people that you are with the crazy radio gang...Camping fees are $8 per person/night.
NOTE from Mike, the campground owner:
The camping cost is $8pp PER DAY plus 8% tax for July 7, 8, & 9
as usual Early birds are welcomed at the same rate! I have confirmed with Mike that campers can arrive on Monday and enjoy both the 4th of July and Lobstercon. I have reserved the group site for the entire week as many Lobsterconners come to the campground several days before the actual event. Thomas Point Beach & Campground is strategically in Midcoast Maine for easy day trips to MANY interesting destinations.
The Group site does not have electricity or hookups. We do run extension cords to the closest power pole. Campers requiring electricity will be charged $5 per night. Regular park camping fee camping fee of $25 per camping unit /family of 2 adults & 2 children
It would be best if most camping reservations were made on-line through the TPB
website. The camping request is in the camping section....OR you can call 1-207-725-6009
Advise each camper to include "With Lobstercon" in the Special Needs section
so the correct price will be charged to them.

(NOTE from Rex: if you plan on camping with the main QRP group in the group site, you already have a spot in the GROUP campsite when you register with me! The 'formal' reservation and payment to TPB&C can be made at any time before you come to Lobstercon *OR* if you want to reserve a campsite with other amenities. The campground doesn't open up until mid May so Mike might not be available to respond immediately to your reservation requests but reservations have been confirmed already. Please don't pester him with continuous emails/phone calls until later this spring. Check the TPB&C for the opening date. If you want a regular site close to the group site, send ME an email to let me know. I will be holding a couple of close sites 'in reserve' for just that purpose.)
