    PvtMana, Janos, & Blackwatch put together a list of upcoming reenacting events. I have tried to get more info from the actual coordinators, but have failed. So I post them here FYI before any more events have come and gone.

    Mayhaps they will continue to keep us all aware of other events the world over. I'm certainly interested in anything that will be happening near me.

    APRIL 30 - MAY 1, 2, 2004 - St. Louis, Missouri - Price's Raid continues at this outstanding site (First Federal Fort West of the Mississippi River). All branches welcome. Huge fields for artillery, beautiful trails and roads along the Mississippi River beneath the bluff. Infantry will fight through the trails and woods, slightly rolling and exceptional. Major cavalry battles as well, Battle of Westport and the Battle of Big Blue, Saturday and Sunday battles, spectator battle is Sunday only, somewhat scripted. Each commander will determine movements. Best camp sites for any style, campaign or civilian, whatever you wish, and separate out of sight from each other. Almost rain proof. All standard amenities, hay, water, straw. In cooperation with St. Louis County Parks, The Trans-Mississippi Brigade and sponsored by the Division Cavalry Brigade. Contact: Col. Terry Crowder, (314) 388-0588, email [email protected].

    French and Indian War
    We will be reenacting George Washington's first victory on May 28th at Jumonville Glen. These were the shots that were fired in the backwoods that set the world aflame according to Horace Walpole.

    Society for Creative Anchronism (SCA)
    This is a medieval-theme event in York, UK.
    In this event, the next viceroy and vicereine will be chosen to administer the Crown's lands of Insula Draconis (UK and Ireland). There will be armored combat and a lot of fun.

    Ever wanted to hit someone with a sword? How about learning archery or learning how to fence? Medieval dance? Storytelling? Heraldry? Cookery? Medicine? Tactics? Literature? The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) does all of these and far, far more for the entire expanse of history from the beginning through 1601.

    Virtually everywhere there is internet, there is SCA. Our events are where we have the real fun -- at these there are no observers -- everyone has to make an attempt at pre-17th century attire (loaner gear is available).

    Here are the websites to see what is doing on in your neck of the woods (it won't kill you to visit the website -- come on!):

    - The Kingdom of Lochac (Australia and New Zealand)
    - The West Kingdom (Northern California and Nevada, Alaska, Japan, Korea and Pacific Rim)
    - The Kingdom of Caid (Southern California, Greater Las Vegas Area, and Hawaii)
    - The Kingdom of An Tir (US: Oregon, Washington, the northern tip of Idaho; Canada: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, the Yukon, and the Northwest Territories)
    - The Kingdom of Atenveldt (Arizona)
    - The Kingdom of Artemisia (Montana, southern Idaho, most of Utah, and western Colorado and Wyoming)
    - The Kingdom of the Outlands (New Mexico, most of Colorado, parts of Wyoming and Nebraska, and El Paso and Hudspeth counties of Texas)
    - The Kingdom of Ansteorra (Oklahoma, most of Texas)
    - The Kingdom of Calontir (Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, Northern Arkansas)
    - The Middle Kingdom (US: Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, a nip of Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North and South Dakota; Canada: Manitoba, and a bit of Ontario)
    - The Kingdom of Ealdormere (Canada: Ontario) http://www/
    - The Kingdom of Meridies (Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, most of Arkansas, Tennessee, almost all of Georgia, a bit of the panhandle of Florida, and small portions of both Kentucky and Virginia)
    - The Kingdom of Ćthelmearc (western Pennsylvania, western New York, and West Virginia)
    - The Kingdom of Trimaris (Majority of Florida, Panama, and Antarctica)
    - The Kingdom of Atlantia (Maryland, most of Virginia, North and South Carolina, a bit of Georgia)
    - The Kingdom of the East (US: eastern Pennsylvania, eastern New York, Delaware, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine; Canada: Quebec, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland)
    - The Kingdom of Drachenwald (Europe, Africa, Middle East)

    Apologies to those of you in South America. We'll get to you later .

        Calontir is a great Kingdom...I used to live there (Barony of Three Rivers and Shire of Wyvern Cliffe). If you're interested, try to get to Lilies -- it's one of the foremost events in the whole SCA -- you'll need to contact someone for clothing, etc ([email protected]) -- tell them the Drachenwald Chatelain, Janos, sent you -- contact them early, since prep will take a while and they're busy. Lilies website is at I fought it a few Lilies Wars and always had a great time!

        That looks good, too. They need more stuff, but that will come with time.
