Points to Ponder

Homebrewed beverages sometimes have a kick you’re not used to….please don’t drink and drive, we want you back next time. Please be a responsible participant for your neighbors with excess noise, etc. Anyone not acting in a responsible manner will be escorted to the gate and asked to leave with no refund.

Keep your door prize tickets handy, they are good for prizes throughout the day.

Food will be available Friday night all day Saturday and Sunday breakfast.

On behalf of the NEHJ Committee we want to say a hearty “thank you” to everybody involved in the success of the Jamboree. All proceeds above costs are donated to the Make a Wish Foundation of New Hampshire.
