Spring Nationals 2018


There is a name among skirmishers for the weather at Fort Shenandoah, in Winchester Virginia.  "Shenandoah Sunshine."  Spring nationals this year was greeted by shenandoah sunshine in buckets... which is another way to say that it rained most of the time.  Fortunately, while there was some flooding in some of the camp areas due to standing water, Back Creek did not overflow it's banks during the skirmish days, and all events were fired as scheduled.

Many thanks must go out to both the host teams and to the property manager, Tim Scanlan, for their tireless efforts to keep the fort functioning during the inclement weather.  Thanks also to the hearty skirmishers who toughed it out to participate in the shoot.  Despite the weather, fun and cameraderie was had by all.
