Dash, Whilst your idea might work at a small event, I don't think it will ever spread across mass societies like ECWS and the SK. The Beer and bash mentality is deeply entrenched in both societies for historical reasons: As we both know the attempt to impose point only fighting within ECWS had a nea...

Different events!

The one on 29th-30th May is a multi-period event in which I am not involved.

The event on the 8th-9th July is a World War One event being organised by the 1914-21 Society and GWS.

We would welcome WW1 re-enactors to the latter event: If any would like to come they can contact me.
