33936Fanshawe thank you
- Oct 1, 2007Thank you everyone for your kind words and attendance to Fanshawe
1812. A lot of work but well worth it. There were a lot of
individuals behind the scenes who put this one together. Forgive me
if I miss anyone but I want to ensure that a few notables get due
From the 1st (Royal Scots) Grenadiers; Glyn Parsons, Linda Parsons,
Kevin Garrett, Ron Zboril, my wife Karen, and of course Hal who has
continuously talked this event up.
From the village; Sheila, Lana, Eleanor, Nelson, Robert, Jeremy and
Jeff for allowing us to take over their village and play. We are
invited back again next year.
Speaking of next year, the event is once again the weekend before
the Canadian Thanksgiving as it was this year but will fall in
October as it usually does. The date had previously been posted on
the events list under 2008 event planner
October 4th and 5th, 2008.
No firm decision has been made on another ed day but feedback has
been very positive.
Thanks for all the wonderfully positive comments we all received
this weekend. Feel free to send comments about the weekend to me to
pass on to the other organizers to make it even better.
More pictures of the event are available on the Royal Scots album
Thank you again and we will see there next year.
