    2017 Spring Nationials
    The Engineers mounted good smoothbore and carbine teams. The carbine team had  help from our campsite neighbors, the Delaware Blues. The musket team was a bit short, we only had 6 shooters. Pick ups were few and far between. But the weather was great. Sunday, the Engineers shot in the second phase. It has been a long time since we did that and everyone was generally pleased with the result of being off line about 2:30 pm.  Special thanks to our guest, David Chinn, who provided us with some great

    Gunshow Notes
    The team was represented at the Salem Virginia Gun Show Dec 17 and 18. We had a number of people who showed interest and we handed out a lot of cards and literature. Some lessons learned are to get a higher banner, do better at getting names to contact later, and have a better AV than a laptop or at least better sound. Thanks to Bert, Tony, and Dave to manning the table.

    Winter Quarters
    The Regiment has gone to Winter Quarters. Time to reload and fix gear for the 2017 Season which will start in March 2017. It is also a time to recruit new troops. The goal is to put a second company on line by the late part of the season. Even if it is a short company of 5 versus a normal company of 8, we will have achieved a great advance for our unit. We will be back at the Salem Gun Show in Deceber with our first effort for the season to achieve that goal.

    April 1 Match or "....Wait, What?......Snow!"
    OK, Saturday April 2 in Winchester looked nice, clear blue skies.... but the wind. Not breeze, wind. Flat out push your muzzle around wind. But in spite of the wind which made things a little chilly, we had a good time and Dave had a chance to put his new rifle and uniform to the test. He did great and is a welcome addition to the regiment. During the carbine match they announced due to the impending cold, Sunday was Uniforms optional. What they did not tell us about was the impending
