Finally got some "real" snow

It snowed pretty good here for the past couple of days. Last night I went out to do my chores and found the snow on the trail to the chicken hutch and goat pen to be just above my knees.

I gotta admit, it is pretty funny watching the ducks wallowing around in the trail they are trying to blaze to their food trough.

Everyone else in the country has been getting big snow, and we finally got our turn!

More details on April musket shoot

We had a little meeting at the Diner over in Springfield VT today. Bob, Charlie N, Wendy, Caleigh and myself. We talked over various ideas about the spring shoot, and decided to have camping available to whoever wants to stay the weekend, but to hold the actual event on Saturday, April 24th, 2010.

We also talked over some ideas to make it fun and educational for everyone.

Stay tuned for more info!

Musket shoot scheduled

OK folks, mark your calendars!

Our next event that we will be hosting here will be a circa 1775 musket shoot. It will be on the weekend of April 24th and 25th on our property here in Charlestown, NH.

Now that we have picked a date, we will get to work ironing out the details.

At the very least, we will have tomahawk throwing and smoothbore musket shooting. Shooting will be using military-style paper cartridges and loading will be from the cartridge box. We may also have a buck-n-ball shoot and some other games as we think them up.

Watch here for updates! Official event information will also be posted at
