Since this is the beginning of a new season of this little hobby I want to throw out this question to everyone. What changes would you like to see within your area to make the hobby better this year? (Please don't respond with rude or hateful comments and I ask that if you do have constructive criticism be respcetful. As my momma always said if you can't be nice don't say anything at all. Mods: if you feel this thread may get out of hand please lock it and let me know)
Here locally I would like to see more infantry show up at events. It seems as though lately everyone has either "jined the cavalry" or belongs to artillery. I am no university educated history scholar but didn't the infantries of both armies make up the greater number of men?I know that the cavalry and artillery both make for an exciting show but are we really be true to history?
Speaking of history,I know I am not anywhere near the caliber of living historian as many belonging to this forum are but I have lately been setting small goals to improve my portrayal each time I step onto the field. When I first started I was the epuipment junkie. There was always some little trinket that I saw and just had to have but once I got it it would just sit in a box somewhere taking up space and adding extra weight. I have started to scale down what I bring each time I go to an event and understand where I was going wrong before. I would like to thank the fine folks on this forum for helping me just by having the many discussions on here for people like me to follow.
