      Fort George -

      If the Grand tactical was not opposite this event, Ft George would be my next choice for FERRET. Indeed, if I had heard of it sooner there is a strong chance I'd be there instead.

      This was the site of the first re-enactment that we ever attended (thanks to Peter R - or "curse you Peter R" depending on the event) and decided to form the group a short while later.

      Fort George has been very good to us through the years and we are always happy to support them when we can.

        Ft. George was set 2 years ago and the Sack. Harb. event (for the past 7 years) has beenthe first Weekend of every August(whether it be anentire of half weekend). This now known I must withdraw, and apologize for my previous comments (ie "asinine and discourteous")because of my sincere high regards for both sites, staffs and for those who put in great effort to help plan these events year in and year out for the enjoyment of the rest of us.

          It would of been a great opportunity for our 1st Bn 23rd RWF to do two events back east had one or the other been on ajoining weekends, As our parent unit is the RWFA or Rev-War we are attending Fort George, would of be nice to catch Sackets Harbor the weekend before or after.

I am not sure which schedule was set first but I hope those who are pulled in both directions will consider the importance of the Sackets Harbor event in the light of the recent budgetary issues that threaten that place.
