    Cool Camp Geiger : Lehigh Valley Civil War Days - 2013

    Fellow Living Historians / Reenactors

    I'm hear to give you all a heads up about next year's Camp Geiger. It's being held the weekend of May 17th through 19th. It will consist of trench war fare, tacticals, public battles and more. It's a great event for Mainstream, Progressive and Campaigner. And for years all who have come always work wonderfully together and always leave happy after having a great time!

    If you register now before February 28th 2013, the registration is 10 dollars.

    for more info please visit:

    www.campgeiger.org.

    I promise you will NOT be disappointed!

    Folks, this is a great smaller event which does a fantastic job incorporating Streamers(like me)/Progressives and beyond. We always have a blast!

    Are the forces fairly even at this event or are you in need if one more than the other?

    It varies from year to year...but never is one side overly out numbered.

    Walk through of Camp Geiger completed this past Saturday.

    In addition to the Yearly Trench fighting, two special scenarios have been picked for the weekend. One is a public battle depicting Barlow's Knoll.

    The local regiment from that area fought and got destroyed on Barlow's knoll so we want to recreate that one battle down to the civilians interaction with the troops, the second scenario is a special one and will remain a secret until it arrives, put it this way YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS CAMP GEIGER!!

    Bring a TON of rounds, this is going to be a VERY aggressive weekend.

    Please PRE REGISTER ASAP! Let us not forget that smaller events RELY on Pre-Registrations, without them they have a hard time putting them on, if at ALL!

    Due to low registrations, the Saturday Night Meal has been cancelled. In order to put the event on the Organizers have had to cut some stuff off of the event. PLEASE continue to register for this event. Smaller Events Rely on PRE REGISTRATIONS to survive and be able to put events on like this.. PUSH YOUR PEOPLE to get registered.

    For you Campaigner types, Camp Geiger is the perfect opportunity to live in the dirt for two days in period trenches. Just to make your experience perfect, we'll do our best to supply rain, for at least one night!
