These classes are getting a little 18th century so here is a little on the Society for Creative Anachronisms (SCA.org) covering up to 1600 AD.

1600-1800 / Re: Ft Defiance (western NC) Lenoir's Rangers

COVID costs Fort Defiance almost all of their volunteers but the new Director found something very interesting; in 1776 Captain William Lenoir was tasked with creating a patriot ranger unit so Lenoir's Rangers are looking for members.

Please congratulate Ft Defiance's new Site Director, Jonathan Baird!

Try to stop by and visit or even volunteer as they ramp up activities.

After yet a 2nd annual SteamPunk Cruise being cancelled we are making plans for the 2022 cruise.

There have been several cruises proposed but the front runner is a repositioning cruise aboard the Radiance of the Seas through the Panama Canal in April 2022.  This is a 13 night cruise departing Miami and ending in Los Angeles. 

For more information please see https://www.facebook.com/groups/189772278077087 or PM me.

France started the canal in 1881 and Teddy Roosevelt finished it in 1904 so there will be a little history in addition to some other interesting ports. 



It looks like this cruise won the polling since folks have started making reservations.  After two cancellations we are jonesing for a long cruise and are a little worried that these will be sold out early.
