Androscoggin ARC logoCory Golob, KU1U, writes in the AARC-W1NPP list:

After tallying the votes, the Androscoggin Amateur Radio Club will activate Range Pond State Park (K-2405) on Saturday August 5, 2023 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. The park opens at 9:00 AM which will give us an hour to set up. This will give us enough time to advertise the POTA event and post it on the Scheduler. We will be using W1NPP for the POTA Callsign.

Park fees are as follows:
Adult Maine Resident: $6.00
Adult Non-Resident: $8.00
Maine Senior Citizen: FREE (Must show proof of age at the gate)
Senior Non-Resident: $2.00
Children Ages 5-11: $1.00
Children under 5: FREE

We will do a simple cookout. Bring the whole family and friends for a fun day at the beach.
