If Beaufort follows the same pattern as in the past, it will fall on the same weekend as Pike. I checked the website and it has not been updated yet.

OK so I need aheads up as to who is going and what we want to do for skits and presentations.

We could do a simple servant auction

Weapons and sword demos

How about a "FAKE" pirate trial.... as we all know pirates use to conduct fake trials for fun...with false witnesses and charges and all that guff...this could be a fun alternative??? Perhaps at the end, the REAL militia arrives and arrests everyone???

Simple easy cheesy???

Anyway, Kathy is looking for numbers and an idea as to what we have planned....

Yep, just got the word... It's actually Aug 6th, 7th and 8th this year!!

As per our usual plan, the Great Lakes River Pirates will be in full force along the beach at the Pike River Rendezvous this August. Our respectable businesses, J. Henderson Artifacts, Long Hunter Leather & the C. Black Coffeehouse will also be there for everyone's enjoyment.

The coffeehouse will be celebrating the inaugural First Person Interpretation Day on Saturday, August 7th.

All interaction within the coffeehouse will take place in character during the year 1813. All eras and personas are welcome to attend & encouraged to participate. Games, newspapers, music & refreshments will be provided for your enjoyment.

This is a unique opportunity for everyone interested in living history to experience first person interpretation with the support of like minded reenactors.

I know that this is a new experience for most of us. Hopefully, we will each be able to support each other in this first person experience and the interactions will become natural over the course of the day. Everyone will have varying degrees of comfort with first person so don't feel that you are alone if it takes you a while to get comfortable. The important thing to remember is not to ruin those around you and to have FUN!

I look forward to seeing many of you there!
