Brian Wilson writes:
I am sorry that this is a little late for announcing, but another work day is required at Koh-koh-mah for this next Saturday. Weed eating is the main need. We are still hauling and splitting wood. Bring your saws and weed eaters. We will also be moving the flag poles again. Bob says that he will help with his tractor and auger. We need to work on the road leading in from the front to the battlefield. We are also working in the pines along the old fence row getting this in shape. The road leading down into the village will also need some major attention.

She was a good friend to many and a talented reenactor, and will be missed by all.

Brian writes:

We are going to need one more work day. This weekend at 9 am for those that can make it. We got a little bit behind due to tractor getting stuck.
The new bridge is done. We need to fill in some holes and soft spots. We need mostly some weed eating done, some in the battle field, but mostly the milice camp. Also, some work in the voyageur and Indian camps.
I was also wondering if those that were working on the cabin rafters, if they were coming back?

Just let me or Bob know if you can help.

I have a wedge tent for sale. It is the convertible one in Jas Townsend Catalog. If interested, I have pictures I can email you. I have used it 4 nights at the Sadie's Soap site at the Koh-Koh-Mah event. Being new to re- enacting I bought the wrong tent for what I wanted. The tent is in excellent condition. It includes the poles and stakes. With shipping and everything, I spent close to $400.00 for the tent. I want $250.00 plus shipping unless you live within 50 miles I will deliver it. After you see the picture or you have me at Bob you will know what great shape the tent is in. Thanks.

Haynes Apperson Parade posted 07/03/02 01:20 pm by matt
Brian wrote in to say that on July 7th, there will be a Parade in Kokomo, called the "Haynes-Apperson Parade". It usually takes places around 1:00-2:00 PM on Sunday afternoon. We won first place in this parade last year. Those that marched in the Western days parade at Russiaville have kept this record intact, they took first place. If possible, Brian will be shooting the cannons, maybe at Bob Auth's following the parade for those that are interesed. Please plan on it if you can. This helps promote Hazen's company as well as the "Koh-koh-mah and Foster" event.
