11th Pa Reserves Pimpin' Hypin' Raisin' Maryland My Maryland, Sept 5-7 2012, Potomac Legion Adjunct
I done went and volunteered to run Company G, 11th Pa Reserves. "G" for gimp, "G" for Grumpy. Fitting, right?
So, if you'd like to attend the event, sign up for my company. We'll act stupid, burp, fart and make wise cracks, all the while trying hard not to ruin someone’s moment or movement. I promise not to have you stand at shoulder arms until your hand falls off, or line you up facing the sun. We're all adults so, I won't be telling you to drink water every 15 minutes. If you know someone new who'd like to try this campaigner thing out for the first time, I promise not to make him or her look like a fool, send them my way.
No, you don’t' have to cross the big scary mountains if you don't want to and you don't have to cross that big muddy river if you don't feel like it either and, I won't berate you for not coming East for events. But, having been part of the PL event communication for the 11th Reserves for a while and knowing Billy Birney the TV star is busting his hump to pull this thing off, added to the fact, the 11th Reserves (who we'll be portraying) will actually be doing a thing or two I've never seen done, this should be fun. Kids, historical record shows some civilian took a whole company to his house and made them pancakes for breakfast. So, here's how it goes if you'd like to register.
First, you go here and register:
For your unit group you put "Potomac Legion"
It's nice, they do paypal.
This tells Mr. Anders and his folks, you’re coming and falling in with the 11th Reserves.
Then you go here:
You can either do everything on line, and pay by paypal or print out a copy and do snail mail.
This part of registration is for two different things. First, for your rations. 2nd, so you can pick what company you want to be in. Pick "G."
All of the history of the 11th Reserves is there too.
Uniform standards are here.
As of now, we’re looking at 60 rounds, properly packed, historically speaking. To start with.
So, sign up, we'll try to do things right and have some fun while we're at it.
Oh, and, nobody will die.
