Lobstercon2022! campground reservations have now been confirmed! We will be gathering at Thomas Point Beach & Campground on the weekend of July 8, 9 & 10 2022.
The 2022 event will be the 23th year that W1REX has hosted the QRP event at TPB&C! I have already reserved the group campsite for the 2022 event and set the dates so you have plenty of time to still plan your weekend getaway to Maine! I plan on coming up with a few special activities to make our awakening event from this pandemic very special and an event that you will not want to miss. If you have often thought about coming to Lobstercon but never got a round tuit, you have better make this one.
New England’s premiere QRP gathering, a weekend of QRP camping, BBQ eating, operating, socializing, lobster eating, prize winning, all round great QRP time. A $50.00 registration fee gets you wake-up coffee, juice, cereal, bagels and donuts ( if you wake up early enough) and 2 GIANT meals on Saturday: a BBQ lunch and FRESH Maine lobster dinner. Lobstercon lobsters are fresh out of the ocean for less than an hour before they go into the pot. YOU CAN TASTE THE DIFFERENCE! Pictures of all the fun had by Lobsterconners at previous years events can be found at http://www.newenglandqrp.org

Registration is $50 per person for all meals & activities on Saturday. Camping is additional and reservations should be made through Thomas Point Beach & Campground. You DO NOT need to register for camping until Lobstercon time next year unless you want to reserve a dedicated campsite with hookups ($35 per night). Do not forget to tell the Thomas Point Beach people that you are with the crazy radio gang. 2022 Camping fees are $10 per person/night in our group site.
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 is $32 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. 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.)
