Best of the Rest

Postby craig1459 » Fri Jan 27, 2006 11:08 pm

Now I'm in two societies I have a fairly busy calendar for the coming summer covering primarily the classic WOTR/medieval events.

I'm also interested in expanding my horizons and going to see other eras in action. What are the big gigs for other periods?

There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

Don't forget the Lanark Medieval Festival - multi group event overseen by Tournee : Aug 19-20.

Unlike Bannockburn they've enforced a strict no tartan etc ban and with good safety policy thanks to Paul Murphy.

Check out www.lanarkmedievalfestival.co.uk

There were 105 registered re-enactors last year and those taking part have all re-registered plus new ones. 10k+ MOPS last year.

Very impressed with the authenticity/kit guidelines, as well as the safety/combat parameters

Fingers crossed it all goes according to plan

Gentlemen,

Drop it please - you may not agree with him (and neither do I) or like him, but it does none of us any favours to keep on about it until the site is threatened with legal action and shut down.

Paul.

Does she need to? Surely your majestic presence does that for you?

like he's ever needed encouragement.

but to get back to the point - you have to do hastings.
