One idea floating around is more 'spotlight days' in different places.
So that one day might be 'Keene/Monadnock', another day
'Concord/StateHouse', 'Manchester','Nashua/Merrimack', 'Portsmouth',
etc. Focus on places people might move.
At that rate, we'd still want a week (to fit it all in), but much of
that time would be devoted to visiting different places, and locals
could devote/donate just one day to their locale event, visit other
places if they wished to be part of the fun, and still go home and not
have to camp out right away if they want to, work other days, etc.
A central location is important, and we hope to have something much
more southern. A crack team of location experts are working on it
> Leaving for the liberty dinner sucked big time both
Agreed. The NHLA dinner benefits from having the large number of
guests and that raises money and make a good event size, but it cuts
into PorcFest badly...
If it was within 10-15 minutes of PorcFest, that would work, but
otherwise, it's hours of travel time and kills the whole evening.
Even then, making it the last night of PorcFest is a mistake.
