Excellent work Socal! I can guarentee you that these guys wwill be willing to work to help you. I have had different feedback from different people on them so far, and I am contacting the SAR chapter in Austin to ask for and offer help.

Let's make sure we speak to them in terms that we are offering to help spread their word also, and ask if we can help them in any way when we are doing our shoots.

Even if all a group is willing to do is dress up in costume and speak in 'Old English', that is great. Have them be in charge of the Rev War tables that Cannonman sent out. Let them give one of the Three Strikes Stories in costume.

The pictures Nickle had of the fellow in costume at his shoot look great. I know he wasn't a SAR member, but think about how much it helps to have a person there to help you set the mood of the shoot.
