Vol. XX, no. vii, July 2010


    Mea culpa, I've been seriously neglecting to follow through on this one!  Pastor Brian Tubbs has invited us to perform at Olney Baptist Church in Olney, MD, on Sunday August 8.  Still some tweaking of details to do, but basically we'd arrive around 9 AM and start talking to the Sunday School classes at 10.  The main service starts at 11 and will be based on Paul's "Armor of God" passage from Ephesians 6.  There may be payment!

    Please let me know right away if you are available for this!


    The Legion has an invitation to the Virginia Scottish Games, September 4-5 at Great Meadows, The Plains, Virginia.  We had a pretty good time at that event, last year.  This will probably take the place of the little "Fall Encampment" we used to do, but stay tuned for other possibilities.

    Alec Cunningham has information on a number of other Celtic/Scottish festivals, so contact him if you are up for any of these:

Williamsburg Highland Festival, October 2
Richmond Highland Games and Celtic Festival, October 23-24


    On Saturday September 11 the Legion will participate at Hartwood Days, a community fair hosted by the local Boy Scouts troop near Fredericksburg, VA.  There will be improvements to the site arrangement and facilities based on feedback from last year!  (We'll be more accessible to the crowd, there will be more toilets, etc.)   The event is free to the public from 9 AM to 5 PM, and more details can be found on the website:


Roman and Barbarian friends,
You are all cordially invited to our next event!
Roper Mountain
Leg VI Host
Saturday, September 11, 2010
Roper Mountain Science Center
402 Roper Mountain Road, Greenville, South Carolina 29615, 864-355-8900 for updates and info as it comes available!

Leg VI is proud to announce that we have been selected for a "2nd Saturday" Event at the Roper mountain Science Center in Greenville, SC!  The event will be a "mini-castra" with 800 to 1200 students and parents coming out to see the glory that was Rome.  All Roman Re-enactors are invited to attend.  We would like civilian, barbarian, and Gladiator impressions too, as we have space for the Arena, Camp display, Drill area, Artillery display, engineering display, SOTW, and some supporting events hosted by students and Roper Mountain staff.
This is a Max Effort event for Leg VI and Leg XI.
Tentative Schedule:  Arrive Friday afternoon for setup, event begins Saturday 10 am, concludes at 4 PM.  Teardown that night or Sunday morning.  Short, sweet, and to the point.  Saturday evening we will have a jollification somewhere!  Command Hotel TBA.
If you have a display to set up, let us know in advance so we can plan it into the event.
