Various shots of the brave few who came, camped, ate, shot and reveled.

We shot right across the stream, using crossbows, longbows, muskets and a wheelock pistol. Steve Moffat put up his metal shield as a target and it actually stopped a 57 cal. ball! I put up my second-best felt hat....which didn't do so well, but will be much cooler to wear. Everyone survived my cooking, which was largely chunks o'meat and bread. Hungry soldiers toasted gobbets of beef on broken epee blades while we waited for dinner to cook over the fire.

Period camp was right by the stream
