Thank you for the prompt response. We very much appreciated your
participation at our 17th century event at the Colonial Penna.
Plantation and would like to return the favor. I am CC'ing this
response to a number of individuals and a 17th century blog so that
your message will get out to more reenactors. I will fill out the
registration form and send it to you. Please do let us know how things
develop. I am sure that we can come up with a very fine salute if the
City of Wilmington approves.

I assume you are one of the re-enactors Janet Anderson, our NSC
president, Ruth Runkle, our NSC educator and I met recently at the
Colonial Plantation. Perhaps you are one who did the battle reenacting
which was quite impressive. We definitely are delighted that you will
be participating in Colonists' Day, as a colonial farmer. I think it
would be fine for you to bring a musket. In fact, if there are
enough folks with muskets,we could arrange a musket salute or
demonstration as part of the days activities. I will need to make
sure if we need a permit. We are still in the planning stage, so any
suggestions you may wish to make would be greatly appreciated.
Please fill in the application I sent you and return it to us.
Include that you will participating as a colonial farmer with a
musket. If you would be willing to demonstrate loading and firing, or
willing to participate in
a gun salute, mention this. If you know of others that would be
interested in participating feel free to forward the information I sent
you or send me their name and e-mail and I'll send them the
information. This event
provides a good opportunity for those who enjoy reenacting to
participate in a new venue. This event will help prepare us for 2013,
when we will be celebrating the 375th anniversary of the founding of
New Sweden Colony in 1638.
As the flyer mentions, we have a crew that will be doing a sail by in
the "Little Key" on the Christina River,
They will be giving a gun salute with a swivel gun mounted on the front
of the boat. Check our web site
http://www.colonialnewsweden.org/re-enactors10.php%c2%a0we would welcome you
as one of our
regular re-enactors. There is a link on this page to an application if
you would be interested in
becoming a regular member of our New Sweden Centre reenacting group.
I would appreciate it if you would give me a call at 856-678-5511 so
we can discuss this further. If you prefer,send me your phone number
and I will call you.

In a message dated 2/15/2012 8:27:50 A.M. Eastern Standard Time,
I am a volunteer at the Colonial Penna. Plantation in Ridley Creek
State Park. I will dress as a 17th century farmer. Do you want me to
bring a musket or just come in period dress to mingle with the crowd,
or whatever? What time would you want us to be on site to participate?
