      Hello All,
      Here I am again thanking Dave Brunelle for organizing an Educational event
      this time at the 'Old Stone House' in the Soo.
      Eight hundred teenaged students came through braving the 160mm of rain
      Thursday and Friday and I got to shout at all of them! I'm still hoarse. We
      assisted in the Ghost walk on Ft St John Island Friday evening then three of
      us went to Ft Mackinac Saturday (while interpretation continued at the
      Museum)and did a bit of 1812 presentation and musket firing with permission
      of the Fort Staff. It was apparently the first time since 1815 that anyone
      wearing the uniform of the Royal Newfoundland Regt or the King's Regt
      paraded and fired on the square in the fort. Oddly no objections were aired
      when we raised the Union Jack, just that we weren't using our hammer stalls
      between firings. So being being the professionals we are and gluttons for
      punishment we raced back to dinner and another Ghost walk.Sunday was
      beautiful laid back and easy paced.
      All in all a good educational event.
      Cheers,
      Len
