It was a "Home Coming" for many of us, but for me especially; Westfield is where I first became involved with Reenacting! The Vignettes were Priceless! I believe everyone had amazing fun participating in them. I certainly had lots of fun watching them, and capturing them on film! It was such a relaxed environment for us to enjoy. I am looking forward to many more years of being back at Westfield!

Greetings and Salutations all or ya'll I had a great time,I really enjoyed doing our senario,it was good to hear alittle chuckle from our audiance as we could barley find some obscure little pennsylvanian town on our map, that no one had ever heard of called "GETTYSBURG"....On the military end I felt rusty and a bit sloppy but the men were up to their duty,and quietly pointed out my slip ups so's I could rectifie them(I thank them most humbly for that) My only down side was I may possibly have went a little over the top in my after hours impression of an inbibing trooper.Although when I did the tally I think maybe my somewhat run down condition may have caused what "WHO HIT JOHN" I did inbibe to hit me somewhat harder then normal.Anywayas I said I thought it was a great event and am frothin at the bit to get back in the fray Sgt Jno(mellonhead)McAnsh
I find myself thinking of our Return to Westfield almost daily! I really had missed that wonderful feeling of being there in Westfield! The slideshows are only about 30 seconds each, but I hope everyone gets a chance to enjoy them!
Was very good to see so many out to Westfield, indeed. Makes one nostalgic for a time when it was nothing to have 35 or 40 guys out on a regular basis.... oh well, we got quality now! A great time had by all.... and no John, your imbibing did not go unnoticed - we just thought it would spoil your fun to send you to bed earlier... I gather you paid for your fun the day after, eh? Miss you and can't wait to see you in my sights again!
