About three weeks ago, I threw a tantrum about being let down on you all helping with the work on Camp Siman. It seems I must have hit a note, in the past three weeks with those of you who have responded we have done more work on the main camp area than in the past six months. Up till now, I have been on my own, yes I have a dream, a quest to create a re-enactor paradise at Camp Siman, a dream which I intend to fulfill. Since we have lost Doolittle and Stars & Stripes, Camp Siman is all I have left. I will not place names here, you know who you are and THANK YOU!
Last weekend we had a fun time with the Hike, a low turnout, but a good time. I really wish that those of you who have not been to Camp Siman YET would make the effort to come out and just see the place. I do understand that this is not a priority in your life and I do understand that the hard work may not be your cup of tee and I do not expect you to devote time away from work, school and family just to help full fill my dream. but I do want you to understand that my dream includes you, my friends.
Some of you I have not heard from in almost a year, some of you have not renewed your HRS Membership for 2016. Please talk to me, I need to know what your intentions are. For those of you who have not attended the March Tactical in 2015, the two Open houses in 2015, the training day in 2015 and the January hike this year, what is wrong, were are you. Talk to me.
Mike and Mary Siman have given our group an opportunity of a life time, one which most re-enacting groups would give up there Charters for, 157 acres of land to do as we please, to keep all revenue from the gate for our own use and to take our hobby to new levels in Missouri. With each passing weekend of work on this land, we gain and the Siman's gain it is a win win for all of us.
I am on site most Saturday and Sunday days when there are no other events to keep me busy. For our membership I invite you to join me in supporting this opportunity to advance our hobby and to keep WW II Re-enactig in Missouri.
One of the things that I want to ask of my friends, why are you not supporting me, 6th Corps and the Force in this outstanding opportunity. We have another tactical on 20 February and the next one is 13 May, please support our sponsored events. As a group, we are only as good as our whole.
As to our members who have had employment issues, live at great distances or our members in Canada and England please take this for what it is a group e-mail to our members.
