Thank ye Dutch. The Crewe of the Archangel(and just to note, we are both Archangel and Colonial Seaport Foundation volunteers) worked really hard putting that entire scenario(Condemning a prize ship, War of Spanish Succession) together and it was awesome for folks to walk into the camp and just say "wow!" between the customs house, the warehouse, the captain's room at the Hyde complete with cabin plunder, the Hyde itself, we had cooks, blacksmith, sail makers, and all the weapons, including the new gun, Nameless, on her field carriage, with the master at arms and the master gunner, lace maker and apothecary and more ....well it was a very busy weekend, I am still recovering my voice, but to win the overall award from all one's peers was truly great.

Thanks everyone!

Best quote of the weekend came from a young boy, who, while at the warehouse, picks up a large bar of wax and shouts..."SOAP!" sniggering....

aye, the comments heard in my corner were grand! Jamestown staff would walk by and ask each other when they got the new building. Reenactors came in from the complete opposite end of the park because they were told they had to see what the "crazy #!$(@%$" down by the fort had done. Others would walk by and just stare then say " why did we even come, who brings an entire building to events".

It was great watching people gears turn as we explained how we had pulled off one aspect or another and figuring how they could add to their own presentations.

I was just looking through some photos on farcebook, very impressive and an award richly deserved.

(Mind you, I'm not surprised you beat the "Celticke" Braveheart group! What exactly were they meant to be? ;) )

the braveheart group were a celt group of some fasion at war with the romans across the way from them. they are normally a viking group but decided to switch out this year. the WW1 group are a ball. their neighbors are the doughnut dollies and often win the reenactors choice award.

Ah, talked to someone who was with the Appin group today, she said everyone was very impressed and folks are talking about how they can do something as impressive as the building! I think next year's MTA will be a must see!

The blue man/woman group were protraying Boudicea's(sp) Iceni celts. All I can remember of the Romans was the Espana bit... and their claim to have fought Boudicea. The celts were a young bunch of guys and one girl, who played the queen. They have a long way to go, but I hope they weren't discouraged and will try harder next time round.

Thank ye all for the congratulations, it was a lot of hard work, especially getting together all the cargo lists and the items that went with it, but as always the crewe worked hard and brought things to life. (and a special thanks to a certain Foxe) The customs house was an added bonus, and one of the dept. heads, a Chris Dailey, on the Jamestown/Yorktown staff came back on Sunday to say they were not only impressed that we brought something large that actually served a purpose, but he was thrilled to see a group that not only nailed the military aspect of things but also coverd the social, economic and technical side as well. Every 'station' was well maintained and everyone was engaging and covered their area. He said he had never seen that done at the event before and hopes we continue to grow. I must admit, I have heard the crewe refered to many a time as crazy, insane, completely nuts, so it was nice to hear that we were completely amazing and need to keep up the great work. My hat is off to every member of the crewe, they truly did an amazing job.

Aye there might even be a castle next year...We're tossing about the idea of doing a plague camp, with a big sign across the front of the camp that says "keep out" ;)

There is (or used to be) a group over here portraying Desert Storm era SAS. Their ethos was that if the public found them they had failed. :lol:

There was a vietnam recon group, made up of vietnam vets, they did the pass in review in camo, including their faces, they rather made the hair on the back of yer neck stand on end...wouldn't want to run into them alone and unarmed.

Someone promised pictures and I've seen only a handful. Who's to blame?
