ANNOUNCEMENTS: Reverend Brian Dobby has agreed to serve as Chaplain for the Freens o Reid Harlaw. We are very pleased to have his support and guidance. Also, a replica of the battlefield has been put on display, though it is still partially under construction, as the final figurines of over 750 battlefield participants are intricately painted. See more on this story under the "Information" tab. In the future, we hope to have photographs to post of the model under the "Members" tab.
