The Party is over!
Lobstercon2018!took place the weekend of July 13 2018 and a great time was had by all. Attendance was a little low this year with about people showing up to enjoy the weekend or day. We had another perfect weekend and ate under the stars instead of a giant blue tarp........
This was the 19th annual gathering of QRPers and their familys hosted at Thomas Point Beach & Campground! The BIG 20th party has already been scheduled with the campground and a page set up for joining in the festivities. (See the Lobstercon2019! page.)
New Englands 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 them for your safety & protection) Pictures of all the fun had by Lobsterconners at previous years events can be found at: http://www.newenglandqrp.org

Registration is $40 per person for all meals & activities on Saturday. Camping is additional and reservations should be made through Thomas Point Beach & Campground. Dont forget to tell the Thomas Point Beach people that you are with the crazy radio gang...Camping fees are $8 or $10(??) per person/night.
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
As far as I know, TPB&C wont take any reservations until they open again next MAY so dont expect any action from their site or phone...
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.
Thomas Point Beach & Campground
(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 doesnt 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 dont 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.)
