            We would be looking for just a day living history camp. We’re thinking the


            hours for the event will be open to the public from like 11 – 5, though that’s


            not set in stone yet. But it would be the same if we had to go with the rain


            date on  the next day (the Sunday). We’re still waiting to hear back from


            some of the other groups, but the are still our first choice, depending on the


            majority of  availability. I will let you know as soon as possible.
