2016 Schedule of Events

Every year there are events I plan to go to, but "Life is what happens when you're making other plans" so there may be additions or deletions to my current schedule.

May 7-8 
Fort at Number 4 - Outlanders and Highlanders - 1745

A core group of the 27th Inniskilling attended this event. The weather was cool, but the battle Saturday was very fun. The tourists got up close and personal visits with the Jacobites and the Government troops alike.  Fort #4 opened with this weekend.

June 4-5
Fort at Number 4 - Charlestown, NH
27th Inniskilling - French and Indian War

We had a large showing of Inniskilling and enjoyable weather this weekend. Sutlers to check out, the Fort to review, and reconnecting with friends not seen over the winter. A fine Chicken Fricassee was had Saturday night along with a lot of mingling between the troops.

June 18-19
Event at Fort McClary, Kittery Maine
Attending with Speakman's Rangers.

A small beautiful site with the British holding the Fort and the French camped down below. It was the first time here and we had cool ocean breezes with plenty of sunshine. Friday night we went out to sample the local cuisine. Saturday was filled with visitors and and an exciting traveling battle.  Brother Harold led a fine Sunday service for us to enjoy this weekend as well.

July 16 - 17
Fort de la Presentation, Ogdensburg, NY.
27th Inniskilling, Crew of the Dark and Stormy - French and Indian War

Although storms threatened us at first, the weekend turned into a delightful time. Friday included our annual visit to the Freight House to sampling a local pub. A good time in the navy battle followed by a very busy land battle on Saturday. The evening ended with a late-night trip aboard the Dark and Stormy up river for a few hours. Altogether a good weekend.

The Dark and Stormy became a major player during the battle  against landing troops this weekend, with Devin actually being "shot to death" and falling outside the boat mid-battle on Sunday.  Many laughs were had at this small annual event over the weekend.
