      Sounds like a good event to celebrate the founding of New Sweden, however for me, April 14th is the date for Ken Tanner's spring flea market and i need to try to make some money.

      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.

      Dear Bruce,

      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 we 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.

      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?
