Hi Pete

As an ex-re-enactor I just wanted to say thank you for your efforts over the years in putting together some cracking events. Arguably the best UK private event, always striving for that elusive authenticity. People who 'do' are always in short supply. And you were one of the best 'doers'.

Thanks for the memories.


Nick

Must echo Bauers comments, thanks Pete for your hard work organising Pip'. Always enjoyed myself, can't believe that lack of interest has killed off this great event, Thanks again.

Dave, I never did that one but would love to have a crack about sorting another? Pip Park has been a great venue and hats off to Pete for putting the effort in over the years to make it a reality for everyone who attended. I for one will miss it and I only went 3 times.

You know what they say - you don't miss what you've got 'til it's gone. Indeed, many thanks to Pete for his hard work over the years in organising what was always a great event. Hopefully a break may regenerate interest and enthusiasm to bring this back again some time in the future? Here's hoping.

Thanks Pete for all the work you put in to this every year that it's been on. Will truly miss this one,
Is there anywhere that can match this event with the area we had and for the cost of it ! "don't think so"
Cheers Pete

I think this year was just clashing with other events.

Next year.... if we have guns we can try again?
