Re: Raymond 2012
Those are more good memories that you are conjuring up there. I remember that first Raymond (maybe "97) was really hot (not as bad as Manassas this year, but hot) but had a great time!
I have been rubbing my forehead about the Raymond event (and others) as we have a glut of good events that are hitting right in that same timeframe. In late 2012, within a month or so of one another, we have: 1) Perryville, 2) Westville, GA. 3) Unison, Va and 4) Raymond. It seems like it is feast or famine.
I realize that some are closer to certain events than others, but it always is a dilemma as to how we can execute one of the basic tenants of cavalry warfare and "bring the most to bear at the same place and time" and not divide our forces. I suppose that it is good to have representation of the authentic side of the mounted impression at a lot of places, but we are so few in number (relative to other branches) and it would be so good for us to do some of these adjuncts and EFUBU events en masse. Oh well.................guess I can dream.
We will see.
