We have been invited to attend and put on a display at the military fair at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Musaeum in Hamilton on Sept. 24th.

This would be an one day event, indoors and we would setup table displays like we do at the Airsoft convention. Rob, you could bring the jeep if you wanted to. This would be for both Allied and Axis units.

I need to know if we have any interest in doing this event... I only ask because we also have the Long Branch event just a week later on Oct. 1st.

Let me know if there is any interst and I will say yes to us going to this event. Otherwise we will look at attending next year. He puts on this event twice a year... May and Sept. If you would like a sneak preview you can go to his website and learn more.

Is realsteel acceptable? Airports and Aerodromes have a lot of regs regarding firearms. We may have to specifically obtain permission.

I happen to know one of the administrative chaps there. I have already talked to him regarding a Photo shoot with the 1CanPara members and the Lancaster. I think it would be really good if we could get all the regularily attending members of the 1CanPara out in kit and pose for a photo by the plane they would have dropped out of. Even if this event doesn't work for us; it is still something I would like to arrange.

And without the goat crap on your chin! If you show me a picture of a US ABN Trooper with one then you can keep it. Otherwise, it comes off for History events or you have to opt out, because with it on, you are not even close to 95%.

Okay guys, seeing that is an indoor display I need to know what everyone is planning to bring.

We will have three 10 or 12 foot tables. We can also display stuff on the floor as well. If we think that we may need more room I can ask.

I will also update with more details later tonight.
