News - List of Events for 2017

Below is a shortened list of known events for 2017. It includes ones we will be attending (All Up), some that are within a reasonable drive, and a few farther away. The full list of events for 1812 reenactments is extensive.

At our February 2017 annual general meeting, the membership will be deciding on which events we will designate as ‘All up’ and to which give our full support. An ‘All Up’ event is one for which members will make every effort to attend and support. These will be identified following our annual meeting. Other events will be added as/if they are discovered.

Attendance at any additional events by members can occur and must be approved by the regiment Commanding Officer and the regiment Administrator for insurance coverage purposes.
