- Dec 31, 2000So now in 2001 how old is the minimum age you would recruit a re
Recruiting some one does it *mean* they get to carry a musket in the
next re enactment that comes after they join? Learning the
proceedures is important.Will these new young recruits learn
the "ropes"then be given a musket after training.
I saw a few younger teens asking the IMUC unit questions about
recruitment at Fort Erie during the seige.
There does seem to be an interest perhaps it is transporation as well
as the expense that is holding some younger recruits back.
If the parent doesn't hold an interest in re enacting are they going
to let junior take the family car away for the weekend?
This is an expensive hobby however it is something that can be
enjoyed by a teen until later on in life and then by his family also.
I would much rather have my kid(who is too young right now)invest in
this hobby rather then other hobby's that don't carry on the interest
past early 20's and the money is then spent and the supplies sit idol.
Happy new year Tracy Forsyth
