Rich Mountain Vendors

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Comrades:

We are pleased to announce that four of the top vendors in the authentic hobby have committed to Rich Mountain. They are CJ Daley, Jersey Skillet Licker, LD Haning, and Richmond Depot.
The vendors will be open for business at event registration on Friday, July 14th from approximately noon until 11:00 PM or so.
We will be announcing "Bully Buys" for the event in coming weeks. Keep an eye on this folder and the Sutler page of the web site for more details:

Which leads me to a simple question, were bugle call tapes and CDs available in 1861? :D

People who live in grass houses shouldn't stow thrones.

RJ,

I have never met you at an event [deletion] Don't you have anything positive to say about anyone but the guys that you bugle for?

RJ,

Dan Keyser

but sometimes he's pretty entertaining.

And occassionally he'll start a really good debate.

What more could we ask for?

What's wrong with having vendors set up in the parking lot before an event?
After all I'm sure all will be arriving via modern transportation, even wearing modern clothing for the drive( oh the horror). So what's the big deal?
Just looking for something to cry about?

Now if they could just get get a funnel cake vendor to commit to attending on Friday only...

Wow! Seems to me that this is a pretty big nod to authenticity. Authentic venders are invited to sell their wares, but not during the actual event. If this sort of thing were to occur at mainstream events, most reenactors probably wouldn't know how to spend all the spare time between the three battles and a ball.

Its just old RJ the pot stirer and bugler extraordinaire. Just a friendly poke. I'm sure knowing him no serious offense intended, if he did intend an offense we would know it.

Congratulations to RJ for contributing the most offbeat and creative objection prior to the event! In your honor, we have created an award in your name:

This award will henceforth be awarded to the individual who is able to raise similarly offbeat and creative objections prior to a future event.

Congratulations! (No offense taken. Just having some fun) ;)

Eric, do you mean RJ blows a little bugle or has a little bugle?

Too funny Eric...ain't this hobby great? This is why at my old age I just can't give it up yet. As far as riding or walking to an event, I'd ride my Harley if I could(better gas milage). I do think the public and the State Police would have something to say to me with a musket riding side saddle...lol.

Regarding bugler extroadinaire R.J. Samp : any one with that much wind must expel it somewhere and a bugle can only take so much. R.J. is a walking encyclopedia and his heart is in the right place . The guy can saddle and ride a horse , travel anywhere , knows battalion and probably brigade drill and knows military history and customs dating back to the Assyrians . He should be an army commander not a bugler . We should value our own and not eat them alive .

I can't tell if that's better addressed to RJ, or about RJ. :D
