The never ending quest for experiences to enhance or add to your repertoire of reenacting keeps individuals and unit commanders continually busy. For years I have tried to work on such things for my own unit, The Massachusetts Provincial Battalion. In the fall each year we host an event at our fort, Ft. Bagley, in the middle of the lower peninsula of Michigan. (In 2013 our event is September 14-15.) We call the event our Challenge Weekend.

Another fun filled weekend at Colonial Kensington has come and gone. We were blessed with fantastic weather for working and soldiering in wool uniforms. It was cool and rainy on Saturday and Sunny on Sunday so all were able to pack up dry canvas. (Yea dry canvas!).
This weekend is the final public event for the Battalion this year. It runs all day on Saturday August 11th and 12th. Here is a nice write up of the event from the Observer and Eccentric.
Hope to see you all there.
