I hope all of you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. It is the official start of summer and the kickoff to the next 8 very busy weeks for me. Just to bring everyone up to date, the event at Alamance Battleground was nice, if not well attended. A lot of our guys dropped out at the last minute for various reasons and we ended up with three guys there. Saturday night thunderstorms flooded us out of our tents, but otherwise we had a pretty good time. Hopefully we'll get more guys to go out next year.
The next few months will be extremely busy with lots of programs, including two cannon shoots at Fort Macon (the first of those being tomorrow). Throw in a five day vacation to Pennsylvania, a big War of 1812 living history, a big Civil War living history, and a smaller Civil War living history and you have the makings of some very busy times for me. Luckily, some of these events are one day affairs, making them a bit less time consuming, but there's still a lot on the plate. I'll explain in more detail as these things occur. But for now, it's off in the morning to shoot the cannon for the first batch of summer tourists, then we'll see what the rest of the holiday weekend holds. Stay safe everybody!
