My fellow reenactors,
 
I hope that you're planning on joining us at Tom's Farms on October 11-12. The event should be even better this year.
 
This event was held for the first time last year and was a great success. The spectator crowds were huge. (Free admission has a quality/appeal that is hard to deny.) Take a look at this video of the event: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RuWj4wvblfs
 
This year, Tom's Farms has gained access to the church property to the south of our encampment and battlefield last year. This large tract of land will increase enormously the amount of parking space for the public and reenactors. Very importantly, we will have additional "elbow room" to spread out our bivouac area.
 
While everyone was well-pleased with the event last year, the one complaint I did hear about was the dust. If only one thing could be improved, many said, it was reducing the dust. If the rains don't come this year, I am happy to report that I have been told that the encampment area will be watered heavily in order to urge the growth of greenery for our event.
 
Sutlers, confirm your intention to attend, and provide me with the footprint of your tent, not including ropes.
