Re: [WarOf1812] Battle of Georgian Bay 2004 - Cancelled
- Thank you David for a great run on the BGB. I have wonderful memories
of 2001 - wading through the mud on to Magazine Island; watching a
colleague do a belly flop into the water; me accidentally scooping up
half of Georgian Bay in my shako and putting on my head, much to the
amusement of the spectators.
The noise, the battles, the grand fun, the music, especially
Tanglefoot, the final battle and facing M. Matthews and his noble, but
doomed 21e Ligne Regt. Ah, you died well, Monsieur!
All in all, an excellent time. The organization was superb, and you
and your colleagues Dave should be congratulated on a wonderful
addition to the hobby. Let us hope that it will not completely die.
You did well, sir. Many thanks.
