Schedule of Events

FRIDAY – May 13th, Early arrivals and Camp(s) set-up, personnel on site to direct camp setup and parking. Anytime after 1200 in the afternoon until evening. Both the Allied and British commanders will be on site by noon Friday to help with any organization or questions. As the participating units are fluctuating, those coming need to bring a tally of number of people and tents and equipment (ie guns, etc) as well as a copy of their unit proof of insurance. All members will sign in to the event log book so we have an accurate tally of folks participating. Individuals interested in participating will be assessed on a case by case basis and if kit/training/etc. is acceptable, will be temporarily assigned to a registered regiment for the weekend.

General Greene has ordered a Joint (British and Allies) Council of War for all unit commanders Saturday morning at 8:30AM to lay out the final scenario and plan of the day.

Docents and Ladies of the House will report to Dave Procaccini in the caretakers cottage upon arrival for assignment.
