Having missed the bulk of last year's reenactment, I wasn't about to make the same mistake this year. Or was I? While I was in the perfect position for the show Saturday, there was no show. They were not set up for it this year, grass too high, danger of fire from blanks, no provisions for crowd control, etc. Sigh. I was so looking forward to photgraphing the tanks in action too.
On the next day, they did do a quick 5 minute tank run and fired a few blanks, but I was on the other side of the runway - having been told the day before that the demonstration was scrubbed for both days! So no shots of that either...
As this was a very popular event, I'm sure I was not the only one that was disappointed. Despite the lack of a reenactment, it was still a lot of fun to wander among the vehicles and weapons, and talk with the reenactors dressed in period uniforms. These are some of the shots showing what was there.
