To the moderator and all:
I have a suggested forum discussion that others might be interested in and it is a "Mechanics of Reenacting/Hosting any Event Authentically".
I'd be rich if I had a nickle if every time I heard someone ask "How do I get this certain permit for an event we're hosting?" or "How do we create flash charges and ground explosives for added realism?"... "How do we buy or we create period-correct trenches/cheveaux-des-frise/gabions/battle wreckage, etc. for added effect?"
Basically, a Mechanics of Event Site-Prep 101 course I feel would be helpful to anyone for common knowledge/expert advice by people that have hosted events before. Complete knowledge from A-Z could be shared to save fellow hobbyists time, money and frustration. (It might also keep someone from being unsafe out of lack-of-proper-knowledge.)
Subject to your questions and healthful debate...
