NCRA Colonial Encampment:

Our annual Colonial Encampment will be held July 25th through the 29th, 2018 at our usual location on the Black River, 11405 Gate Rd SW, Olympia Washington.

While this is a closed event for reenactors dressed in period accurate attire and lodging in period camps we also welcome those interested in visiting for a few hours to see if reenacting might be good fit for them.

If you are a reenactor don’t miss this, our signature event.  We will be enjoying multiple presentations and classes, canoe treks, bowls, teas, games, marching drills, shooting contests, evening campfire conversations, raffle prizes, colonial dancing,  and a fabulous potluck dinner that has to be tasted to be believed!

As always, we will especially enjoy the endearing atmosphere of family fun, fellowship and camaraderie that has become the norm for this event each year.

If you are interested in participating in Revolutionary War reenacting in the future and you would like to meet all our wonderful people and discover what the Northwest Colonial Reenactors Association is all about then this is also the event for you!  We would be pleased to welcome you as our guests as you visit us for a few hours at a time and on a day of our encampment that works for you.  Please feel free to contact us for directions to our event.

We also normally put up little signs along the local roads to show you where to turn.

If you look directly down below the “11405 Gate Rd SW” red marker on the google map you will notice a sharp peninsular bend of the Black River.  That is where our encampment will be established.  A dirt road, not shown on the map, extends southward to our camp area.  Just follow the signs set up along the dirt road.

 

Spring Event!  Colonial Day at Port Gamble

This event is being set up by the Northwest Colonial Festival and they graciously invited us to join them.  So, this will be our Spring Event for the year.  It is just the kind of public outreach and recruitment camping event we’ve all been waiting for, so please try to come and camp if you are able to.  🙂

The Main event date is April 28, 2018 – 8AM to 5PM but you Can camp from  Friday April 27th through Sunday April 29th.  It will be at Port Gamble in a nice park like setting.

NO fees for participants.  We can set up camp on Friday and break camp on Sunday.  Or, for those not able to camp, you can just drive to the event on Saturday.

There are great restrooms and water near the camp and it has a nice view overlooking the town.  There are nice trails right near camp.  Look up a google map of Historic Port Gamble.  The camp location is currently just below the middle of Pacific Avenue

Here is a link to a map of the area showing the campsite:

Posted by It's 1775 Again on Saturday, February 24, 2018

 

We can bring our muskets and we might even blank fire them to demonstrate for the Boy Scouts who will be camping nearby and visiting our camp.  (We will need to avoid making excessive noise between the hours of 1PM and 4PM on Saturday, however, due to a wedding happening in the vicinity.)

The Columbia Fife & Drum Corps is even going to be there!  WooHoo!!

No open pit fires but we can use our braziers.

No pets due to local regulations etc.

Dan Wilbanks invites us to join the NCF in this endeavor and it is shaping up to look like a fantastic event for us and for the new people who would like to come and meet us and see if they would like to become reenactors with our group.

Again, there is no cost to you or to us.  All we need you to do right away is click on the Event Facebook Page below and write a post about how many of your family are coming and on what days you will be there (yes, you need to do more than just hit the “Coming” button.)  Oh. and be sure to mark it on your calendar as well 😉

The weekend of Oct. 22nd & 23rd is the NCRA Fall Event to be held at Trish and Steve’s “Walnut Farm House”.  Trish will have natural walnut and indigo dyes ready for you to try.  I’ve also heard she may show some wine making.  This is a skills weekend and you are encouraged to bring any colonial item or skill you would like to share.  Also if you have an excess of harvest please bring it too.

David Rieve is planning on bringing his cider press.  He says to bring your apples, pears, Grapes and clean bottles.  He is also bringing Cochineal for dying reds.

There will be a “Cast Iron Chef Potluck” for Saturday night.  Bring your cast iron cook ware, your charcoal and your ingredients for your potluck dish.  Bring some extra spices, herbs and whatever you think you might need because there will be a secret ingredient that you will have to cook or incorporate into your dish!  You won’t want to miss the talk on cast iron seasoning, cleaning and cooking.

Trish is asking everyone to contact her by email or phone to let her know if you are coming.  She may need to get a porta-potty on site.  So please RSVP!  And check with her if you need a place to stay overnight.  Modern camping onsite is okay.

The Cascade Mountain Men’s 2016 Muzzleloading Arms & Pioneer Craft Show  March 12th & 13th, 2016 at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe, Washington

Here are some details about the gun show that I sent to our NCRA Board:

Hi all, Wylin here,

Just thought I would bring to your attention that they will be having the gun show in different buildings on the Evergreen State Fairgrounds this year.  It will be in the “400” and “500” buildings this year.  They also will not be having any inside vendor parking and the fairground will be charging $5 for parking.  The Quilters Anonymous show will be occurring the same time as the gun show so that will draw more people to the gun show as well.

The date of the show is March 12th and 13th, 2016

We will all need to be dressed in pre -1840 clothing.

We must check in before moving anything into our space.  Check in will be in the in the main (#500) building (main entrance, north side) Where we will pick up our trader passes.   Additional trader passes available for $15 for both days.

Our table space is # DC-24

Set up for the show will begin at 12 Noon to 9 PM on Friday and from 7 to 9 AM on Saturday

The show will be open from 9 to 5 on Saturday (with no one allowed in the building after 6 PM) and from 9 to 3 PM on Sunday

Tear down begins at 3 PM hopefully ending at 8 PM on Sunday

Looking forward to seeing you all at the show,

Wylin

 

Edward & Stephanie’s 12th Night Event!  🙂

Here is the latest update about the fabulous event that Edward and Stephanie are hosting at their home:

Greetings everyone!

As previously mentioned we are hosting a colonial style 12th Night event at our home in Lacey. We will be hosting the get together on January 2, 2016 starting at 6:30 p.m.

Everyone come in period clothes and bring your favorite period desert. We’ll have period drinks available as well for the evening but please feel free to bring one of your own favorites as well.

There will be card tables set up for period games and I’m looking for an easy colonial style craft to do with the kids.

We will have some crash space available for after the event. Please let me know if you plan to stay overnight. We can always set up a few tents in the back yard if we need to.

We hope many of you will be able to join us. Happy Christmas to you all!!!

Stephanie and Edward

 

Past Events:

 

Hey Everyone, I just wanted to let you all know about a fun, and somewhat colonial era, event happening at my Dance Club on November the 20th.  Since we all had so much fun at our last Colonial encampment with that very French Contredance, “Rabeet! Rabeet!” I thought you might like to do that again in an even bigger way.  So you are all invited!  😉

Below are the current details about the event:

Jane Austen Ladies

We will, as usual, be pulling out all the stops for this event.  Many participants will be coming in Regency Era costume but anything 1740’s to 1820’s will fit in just fine as well.  Never fear however if you are not able to attain a costume in time for you can also come dressed current formal.

We will be enjoying contra dancing (including the “La Boone Amite’” – a 17th century French contredance.)  We will also try our hand at English and Scottish country dancing.  These are very easy dances to learn quickly and we will also have callers to guide us through them.  We are actively searching for a live orchestra to perform for us.

We will also be indulging in our usual homemade cake and Edaleen Dairy ice cream.  Event participants have graciously offered to bring 17th and 18th century treats so we look forward to indulging in those as well.

This Jane Austen Ball is looking like it will be our signature event for our dance club’s first year.  It’s an event you won’t want to miss.  :)

Hey Everyone!  Edward & Stephanie are planing a fantastic event at their place!  More details about it will be posted on this page in the future, but here is a copy of their announcement on Facebook:

Greetings everyone!

I had mentioned at CE that we were contemplating hosting a colonial style 12th Night event at our home in Lacey. We don’t have all the details worked out yet, but we would like to host it on January 2 starting at about 6:30 p.m.

The idea is everyone come in period clothes and bring your favorite period desert. We’ll have period drinks available as well for the evening.

I’m going to do a little research about the celebrations that our colonial forefathers would have done and have some of that set up for the evening.

We will have some crash space available for after the event. We hope many of you will be able to join us.

Stephanie and Edward

 

A Weekend to Dye For!

P1200042

Patricia & Steve Barton announce a Skills Weekend at their place on the first weekend of October, the 3rd. & 4th. They will be showing different walnut dying techniques and will be making walnut ink at the walnut Farmhouse. They will also have the indigo pot brewing for dying. After seeing the CE seminar put on by Jane. Trish gathered up her nettles and they are now soaking to break down like flax.

This is a “working” weekend for all of us to get hands-on experience and you will be able to dye up those bright-whites into natural colonial colors. You will need “modern” working clothes as you will be splashing around in the dye. Trish will supply food grade vinyl disposable gloves but you may want to bring the longer kitchen gloves. Bring large glass jars for taking home some of the dyes and ink. Bring some cloth or colonial clothes to put in the walnut and indigo vats. The indigo vat is only about three gallons so the amount of yardage it can handle will be limited. It is a very interesting chemical process. Also think about bringing wool, linen or cotton yarn for dying. If anyone has large dying pots please bring them. Bring a bag to gather up walnut husks in, for making your own dye at home.

Trish will have her two tents set up for overnighters and there is room to bring your own and maybe a sit-a-pon. She will have snacks for Saturday afternoon and you can bring a dish for the potluck dinner. The bonfire pit will be lit for gathering around in the evening. A continental breakfast will be put out for Sunday morning. Paper plates and utensils will be supplied. You can bring your own snacks and beverages of choice for both days if you want. Dogs are okay but the yards are not fenced so you will need a leash or ropes for them.

This will be an event that is not to be missed!

Trish would like a RSVP if you are coming so she can plan for the size of the group.

Please text or call her at; (360) 929-9530

RSVP’s can also be done by e-mail lunchlady98252@yahoo.com

The Event location is; 3766 South Camano Dr., Camano Island, 98282

    Dear Webmaster Sir,
    I would like to bring to your attention the ending date for the Colonial Encampment 2015 is listed as ending the 23rd. of August. Although I wouldn’t complain at all if this were truly a month long event, I thought I may be of service to you by pointing this small detail out to you.

      Thanks Kim! CE is great but an entire month might indeed be too much of a good thing 🙂 (I’m still trying to figure out how I made that typo, Ha Ha) 😉
