Hi folks. I haven't been on this website in awhile and I came back to see what I've missed. Apparently, it's a lot! I will be more diligent in checking back with my Filipino pals more often!
For those of you that don't know, I'm Anthony Ardisone. I've met a few of you at different reenactments. I'm with the 2nd Armored Division out here, but I've also been elected as the California Historical Group President, our parent organization. Trust me, it's not saying much. I ran unopposed... which must say something about the job!
Anyways, I am speaking off the cuff as I don't have details but if the PS gang would like to appear at the airshow and represent, and you haven't tried to make contact with the Airshow staffers, you are more than welcome to fall in with us. Our Public Relations guy and a liaison with the air museum are going to be checking the camp site to see where everything is going to be placed. This year, the C-17 Globemaster is supposed to be parked RIGHT IN FRONT OF US. And it will start up engines (we're concerned about engine wash in regards to our tents) from there, too. So, that will be looked. I also don't know how many vehicles we will have on display. CHG member attendance won't be as heavy as it was last year. We are also planning on skipping a battle because of the proximity of things and where the audience would be situated. While that might not be as interesting to the audience, it may allow us to have more room to set up camps.
I will have more details by the end of the weekend. If your guys want to come and set up a tent, drop me an e-mail at editor -at- associatedblast.com and let me know. If you guys just want to come in without a tent set-up, I welcome you to come and hang out with us... although I think your tent set-up is pretty impressive.
If not, I will see you folks at Fort Mac in July!!
