The event will be held on the weekend of July 13, 14,
2002 with the camps open to receive participa nts on
Fri., July 12.

Canada Vilalge). All participants in period dress will
also received free admission to Upper Canada Village
for the weekend (starting on the 12th as soon as you
have registered) and there will be a bounty for all
men at arms (this includes musicians, colour-bearers,

There will be period and modern camping areas and all
You can register on-line at our Web site,
www.cryslersfarm.com, which also contains detailed
driving instructions to the site. It is located just
off Exit 758 from the 401, which means it is 758
kilometres east of Windsor.
If your unit has colours, please bring them. Both
armies will have corps of drums and early indications
are that each will have a cavalry arm. As well (and in
typical 1812 re-enacting fashion) we'll have artillery
up the wazoo.
As was the case last year, there will be three
tacticials - on Saturday afternoon and evening and
earlier on Sunday afternoon to let you get on the road
earlier. We will be repeating the memorial service at
the peak of the memorial mound on Sunday morning and
will do the "parade of the soldier" prior to the start
of two of the tacticals.
The event is being run by veteran re-enactors who have
traipsed all over the globe to sleep in the rain, eat
cold food and pee in their hats.
If your unit hs a web page that we have not included
in our links section, please let us know and we will
rectify the omission immediately.
