Bitcoin Magazine's Take On Liberty Forum

I browsed the Internet and filed away stories of nanobreweries and porcupine quill crowns, and stumbled into a Facebook group dedicated to the Liberty Forum. The most noticeable pattern in the Facebook posts was the amount of people driving in from out of town. Several conference attendees were driving in from South Carolina, Michigan and other locations outside of New Hampshire. Others were members of the press, with requests being posted for Ben Swann’s journalists who would need a ride from Logan Airport.

February 2014 Board Meeting Minutes

FSP Board Meeting
Sunday, February 23, 2014
Crowne Plaza Hotel, after Liberty Forum

Meeting called to order 9:13am
Attending: Carla, Varrin, Aaron (left at 10am), Seamas, Jody, Sharon, Rich (on skype)

Agenda:
1. Liberty Forum
2. 501c3
3. Budget

Liberty Forum. Record ticket sales. VIP tickets work well; expenses matched revenues; Discovery Channel, New Yorker, and other media channels were here. We also had favorable local press. We invited speakers outside the traditional liberty circles, reaching into other demographics, and it was very well received. A tweet-up started the conference, and people were tweeting throughout the Forum. The conference organization team was great. People liked the magazine-style program. There were a lot of first time people attending. Attendees will be asked for feedback via an online survey. We don’t have final numbers for attendance yet, but one good indication was that the parking lot was sometimes full. In order to grow the conference, we’re exploring alternatives for next year.

A New Hampshire Hidden Gem

The Crystal Quail

In the dark months of winter, when the moon casts its light on canescent mounds of snow, the latter become fields of icy, glowing gems, riches to behold for the eyes of the careful observer. The angle must be just so to reap the rewards of this natural sacrament. This heightens the transcendence of the moment – the moment we realize that treasures surround us.

One must be observant to glimpse the majesty of nature. So too, the intrepid searcher of hidden restaurant treasures must be equally observant to find the amazing gastronomical gems that can be found in surprising places in New Hampshire. The Crystal Quail is one such gem.

Mover Numbers Assigned

The moment you've been waiting for is here! Our mover update project is complete and mover numbers have been assigned.

If you completed the mover number survey, you should have received an email with your mover number and your "in NH" number. Didn't get it? Check your spam account.

What is the difference between my mover number and my “in NH” number? The “in NH” number reflects your mover number plus the 273 people in New Hampshire that signed the Statement of Intent before New Hampshire was chosen. They can not be counted as movers, but are participants of the Free State Project. You may also note that the “Participants in NH” counter on our website reflects the number of both movers and those who signed our Statement of Intent before New Hampshire was chosen.

If you ordered a signer certificate, you will be happy to know your order will be shipped soon. Or, you can order your certificate now. They are also available in the 13in13 store, with all profits going to the Free State Project.
