----------------------- Hello friends!
We are confirmed for our 1899-1902 era Philippine War living history event at Angel Island State Historic Park, on Saturday and Sunday, October 23-24.
Here is the information you need to participate:
Transportation: Angel Island now has licensed boat operators, and if they are on duty, we can take the state park boat. For those going over Friday, the boat leaves the Tiburon dock at 5:30 pm. Saturday it leaves at 8:30 am for the island, and the last return to Tiburon on Sunday is at 5 pm.
I will check just prior to the event, and if the state park boat is not available, then we will take the Tiburon-Angel Island ferry. The ferry leaves for the island on Saturday at 10 am.
Once we land at the island, we will have a large van and a flatbed truck to transport us and our gear to Camp Reynolds (West Garrison).
Accomodations: We have both the officers' quarters (Q10) and the brick quartermaster building for our use. As in the past, Dori and I will stay at the officers' quarters. Most of us are "veterans" of these events, and so have worked out a more or less standard routine. However, if you have requests for something different than what you've done in the past, accomodations-wise, let me know.
If you stay in the quartermaster building, sleeping pads and "bunks" are provided, but you will have to bring your own blanket or sleeping bag.
Weapons: Correct, historic weapons for this era are welcome, and include: U.S. M1898 Krag-Jorgensen rifles and carbines; M1888 or equivalent U.S. Springfield "Trapdoor" rifles and carbines; M1893 Spanish Mauser rifles; Spanish Remington Rolling Block rifles; and bayonets.
Absolutely no live rounds or blanks of any kind! Inert, "dummy" demonstration rounds are okay, if they have been inspected for safety.
Uniforms/Clothing: Correct U.S. Army uniforms and equipment for the 1899-1902 era are welcome. Any Filipino impressions can portray "native" forces fighting for either side. For civilians, clothing of the same era is appropriate. For ladies working in the kitchen, 19th century clothing of a more broadly defined timeframe is more than welcome.
Meals: Our plans are to provide meals once again, and once again I'm asking for $10/person to cover costs. This time, you don't have to send me the money in advance, you can give it to me (cash or check) at the event. However, you must RSVP to attend the event.
RSVP Required: In order to plan food, etc., I must have your RSVP by reply email no later than Friday night, October 15 if you are going to attend. This event is by invitation only, and the RSVP is mandatory! If your name is not on the participant list, you will not be able to participate.
If you have anyone you would like to invite to this event, check with me first.
Parking: As we have done in the past, you can park in the Chase bank lot, with the entrance driveway just before you get to the bank as you come in from Highway 101. Please do not go into the bank and bother their staff with questions about parking.
I'll have final details on the state park boat and other matters before the event. In the meantime, mark your calendars, and let me know if you can make it as soon as you know.
Not sure yet if we will participate, but we will follow it up.
If we go, most likely it will be me, frank, and a couple of cousins from San Francisco, plus maybe Art Garcia's brigade. Our arsenal has two mausers, two rolling blocks, one ilocano tabak and one tagalog gulok against the massive firepower of yanqui krags and trapdoor springfields that await us at Angel Island.
Let's think it over and sing a song for now.....please leave a nice youtube comment if you can.

VeeVee this was held last June on the "New York street" set of CBS studios. It looked something like "Little Italy" from the Godfather movie. he, he, he...strange place to hold a Philippine independence day street party, let alone to see some katipuneros.
