      Dear Re-enactors and Participants,

      On behalf of the Town of Wasaga Beach, Nancy Island Historic Site, Ontario
      Parks and the Historic Military Establishment of Upper Canada, I would like
      to thank all the re-enactors and participants who attended Wasaga under
      Siege this past weekend. The event was a great success with just over 400
      re-enactors participating. Big thanks go out to everyone who helped make
      this event successful by participating in the battles, parades, pillaging,
      raiding parties and animation within the grand encampment at Nancy Island.
      Everyone's patience getting on and off the island and using the shuttle
      service getting back and forth from Blueberry Plains parking area was
      greatly appreciated. The great music and entertainment provided by Hardtack
      and Harmony, Gopher Baroque, Backroads, Caber Toss, Dr. Quimby and the Corp
      of Drums 1812 added much value to the event. E.L.M catering provided great
      food and the Community Emergency Response Team providing 24hr first aid
      on-site service did an excellent job. The biggest thank you goes out to the
      crew and the staff at Nancy Island who worked extremely hard setting up,
      driving the golf cars, registration, admissions, snack bar, shuttle service
      and various other duties too numerous to mention and of
      course clean-up and take down. I would personally like to thank the
      following people for their extra effort in making this event happen:


      Mark Shoreman - Superintendent - Wasaga Beach Provincial Park

      morning and the concealment of alcohol and containers. Your donations of
