Fall Muster Update

Dear Friends, Compatriots, and Reenactors,
Can you believe it?  We are only nine days out from the big party in the President's yard.  I don't know about y'all but I'm ready.

As we have mentioned several times, the addition of Varina's Garden has caused us to adapt and overcome.  We previously intended to set up sutler's row between the house and the garden.  In the meantime we have learned that there are numerous utility lines in that area.  So we cannot risk a tent spike hitting something that it does not need to be hit.

With that explanation here is what I hope is the final arrangement:  Modern vendors will be near the house.  Period sutlers will be in the reenacting area.  Our SCV food vendors will be on the north side of the garden near the entrance to the reenacting area.

We also have some great news about Saturday night.  Through the generosity of Andi Ostalet we will have an evening meal for the reenactors.  We certainly appreciate this contribution to Fall Muster.

Best regards,

Terry W. "Beetle" Bailey
