LACONIA — The Lakes Region Tourism Association awarded the annual Tourism Award to the Winnipesaukee Playhouse at the association's annual meeting held October 2 at The NASWA Resort's Blue Bistro in Laconia.

The Annual Tourism Award was established to recognize an individual or business that has made a difference during the past year to bring visitors into the Lakes Region and Central New Hampshire. Examples include the enhancement of an event or attraction, development of an event or attraction, outstanding marketing/promotion of a related achievement that had an economic impact by bringing visitors to the area.

The Winnipesaukee Playhouse, established by Bryan and Johanna Halperin and Neil and Lesley Pankhurst, has contributed greatly to the performing arts culture of the Lakes Region since their opening in 2004. In addition to putting on year-round professional productions, the Playhouse also hosts community and children's theatre programs.

NH Youth Deer Hunt Set for October 26-27

CONCORD — New Hampshire's youth deer weekend, Saturday and Sunday, October 26-27, gives young people age 15 and younger the opportunity to go deer hunting with an adult mentor, without the pressure of competing with thousands of adult hunters.

Accompanying adults must be licensed hunters and are not allowed to carry a firearm.

Prospects for this year's youth season are good, according to Dan Bergeron, Deer Project Leader for the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. New Hampshire's deer population is healthy and will provide excellent opportunities. In 2012, young hunters took 388 deer during the youth weekend.

New Hampshire has offered a special youth deer hunt since 1999. Nonresident youth may participate in New Hampshire's youth deer weekend only if their state of residence allows New Hampshire youth to participate in its youth deer hunt.
