Absolutely True. March 21 and 22 (You needn't go both days if you want)
at Jamestown Settlement in Jamestown, Virginia (This is NOT the National
Park on the actual Jamestown site. It's next door--the place with the
Units are lined up in chronological order from Romans and Celts through
Vikings and Normans and all the way up to the modern Virginia National
Guard. There are usually three or four merchants on site selling items
of interest to re-enactors.
This is a competition for the units in overall camp accuracy, costume,
cooking, tactical manoevers, judges' choice and People's choice. This
competition is why some of us hand-sew each seam. The judges look for
stuff like that.
Cost to get in is the same as any other visit to Jamestown. I think
it's $8 - $10.
It's TONS of fun, both for re-enactor and visitor.
Unfortunately, it's also on top of Prince Michael and Princess Seanid's
coronation. So the SCA re-enactors at MTA will be missng that. But the
rest of you can come on Sunday!
