The ELBE RIVER EVENT is March 22nd and 23rd. That is less than two weeks away. I have registered the following pioniers; C. Adams, M. Dwyer, T. Knowles, R. Sawyer and J. Welch. YOU MUST BE IN CAMP NO LATER THAN 7:30am for MOURNING INSPECTION. Michael Ehrhart will be tempoarily promoted to Stabfeldwebel. He will be in command of the unit at this event. He will also be second in command to the German field commander. We will be having a GROUP MEETING SATURDAY evening instead of Suday morning this will give us more time to train on Sunday. We are looking at unit dues. It has been suggested that dues be $3.20 or $5.00. The main reason for this is to help with the mailing of newsletters. Anything else that needs to be discussed can be done at this time. I would suggest that you bring some water and a cooler for cold drinks. I have seen the property and it is very primative.
WE NEED TO HAVE OUR ACT TOGETHER FOR THE RIVER ELBE EVENT. If we have units of the N.M.H.A. attend and we have FARBS and are disorganized. Our reputation that we have worked hard for will be KAPUT. It also means no more larger scale events in the state of Florida. EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE HIGH AND TIGHT HAIRCUTS, NO FACIAL HAIR AND A SHARP MILITARY APPEARANCE.
Now on to the T-shirts. As I have informed everyone. The price will be between $8.50 and $9.00 per shirt. 2XL will cost a $1.50 more. I have the number that everyone would like. Now I need to get the money. I have money from Jay, Peter and myself. We are just waiting for the rest of you guys. If you would PLEASE send me the $9.00 per shirt. I will RETURN any funds left over. Don't forget to add $1.50 for 2XL shirts.
Hermal's (Dan) kubelwagon should be here within the month. It should have top priority for the unit. I feel real bad when we attend events and pioniers have to walk. I would like to welcome our newest member, Mike Raduano. He has been reenacting W.W.II for quite a while now with as SS unit. Our group is a little more local so he has made the switch.
I want to memtion that this is the first newsletter to be put up on the units' home page, thanks to Mike Dwyer. I hope everyone in the group gets a chance to see the home page. I guess now we may have to watch our p's and q's. With time I'm sure this will turn into a top notch page.
