An effort by a northern New England amateur to revive a Deerfield tradition has apparently succeeded. Mike Crestohl, W1RC announced yesterday on an amfone.net discussion list that a flea market–to be known as NEARFest–is a “go” for May 4-5, 2007 at the Deerfield, NH Fair Grounds. Joseph DeMaso, K1RQG and others ran the HossTraders flea market at that location for many years, before switching it to Rochester, NH and later, Hopkinton, NH.
“It’s official,” writes W1RC. “The grand tradition will continue! … But we’ve got to behave ourselves if we want to continue hosting the Near-Fest there. The Web site will be up within a day or two and will be the only official source of information about the ‘Fest.”
