2005 Siege of Fort Erie Unit Registration and Event Info.
- Hello Folks
For unit commanders or group leaders we have posted our registration
form and event information at www.oldforterie.com under On-Line Siege
At the end of the form is the participant guidelines, the letter of
invitation and the field safety rules. Everyone is welcome to have a
look at all the information but we require only one registration per
There are a couple of changes for this year:
1. The British Regulars are moving their camp to the west side of
2. All participants in period kit are being provided free admission
to the Niagara Symphony concert that will be starting in the fort
around 7pm on Friday the 5th of August (bring a chair.
The site is also playing host to the annual Jacobite 1745 Event on
May 21 & 22. We are having an American 1814 Garrison on July 2 & 3
as our contribution to the Friendship Festival. Some Brit/Can/Native
units have indicated an interest in having a garrison/drill weekend
for their individual unit or group; this is first come first serve.
In 2006, we will be commemorating the 140th of the Fenian Raid.
In the coming weeks, there will be a standard mail out to units that
have particpated in the past two years. The information is the same
and we hope on-line registration continues to be popular. Again only
one version of registration per unit/group is necessary and on-line
updates, as numbers change, are welcome.
If anyone has questions or requires a paper mail out, let me know.
See you this summer!
