      Well Mike, as you know, Guilford Courthouse is the closest reenactment to me
      for the whole year, so I'll be there next year. We had great weather and I
      thought great battles. And man, can those horses close the distance fast
      when they are running at you! Guilford in 2006 was the first reenactment I
      participated in once I moved to Virginia (had done reenactments in and
      around Vermont before) and I always look forward to it. In my opinion the
      battles this last weekend were the best so far. I really would like to stop
      the bikers for the couple of hours needed, but let's not throw out the baby
      with the bathwater. Guilford CH is a must for me.

      YMHS,
