I can't seem to find how to contact BnK anymore - their website got massively spammed and I was wondering if there are any events planned for the 12th.
I've got my Guardia/Tiradores del Muerte and Remington mags - sans Remington -
and can put together a Filipino militia costume based on the pic in the Osprey book in a snap. I also have two Rayadillo type uniforms though not much equipment for everything - I just have one complete webbing set. We could play opforce if they're planning to be the good guys :-) You know, the token Guardia Civil force that's defending the polvorin or armory or something. If accuracy's not TOO high a priority I've got a pair of dummy Springfields here and some makeshift muskets.
Just let me know ASAP!

Blimey!! 2 dummy springfields! sounds like you have enough kit to fit out a squad, Tom. An old airgun is all that I can lay hands on at this time. I too failed to make contact via Email with BNK, but Perry was kind enough to post on a Pinoyhist thread his own email address =firstname.lastname@example.org. JoJo Dy has a tel no= 091781120806 & Selwyn's =39189259290 (both in Manila). I have been invited to attend the ceremony in Angeles city where Aguinaldo made the first proclamation. I shall be joining Danny Dizon, Robert Tantingeo & the others on the balcony on that day. I just wish I could be at two places at once! It is very important that I attend this gathering as I'm stuck with being unable to get hold of any music/songs suitable for the DVD project. Then there is the problem of making up a verse or 2 in English! I've had to 'fork-out' for my Arnis kit this week which has left me short for the rest of June. I'll try to phone Selwyn myself Tomorrow.
I bought the old dummy Springfields a couple of years ago - one of the bolts is broken (I think I still have the bolt though and it can probably be fixed in place or something) and it's better than nothing. Sadly we don't have the Remingtons or Mausers that they had at Fort MacArthur but we make do with what we got and gradually improve =)
Will be awaiting word! I've got a costume to finish for my girlfriend in Florida before Wednesday but I should be able to join up on the 12th if there's something planned.
