Raid on the Sandy, Aug. 19-21, 2016
Tophat's Sutlery Proudly Presents
On Saturday, August 20th, the Sandy River Valley will be filled with the sounds of gun fire
as the armies of the Blue and Grey fight for control of the Sandy River & Rangeley Lakes Rail Road. Tophat's Sutlery, the SRRL RR, and Peter & Freya Hainley, in conjunction with "Phillips Old Home Days celebration," invite you to attend the
6th Annual Raid on the Sandy.
Skirmishes take place along side the tracks and from the train on each hourly run, and are choreographed by you, the reenactor.
The SR&RL RR have close to 100 acres to camp and fight on. Wood, restroom facilities, and water provided. Also, free dinner provided for authentically attired reenactors and railroad personnel on Saturday.
Sunday is open to popular request...morning skirmish, tactical, break camp early, your choice....
Rumor has it that there will be a ladies' tea and sewing circle taking place at Ambleside. Stay tuned for details!
This event is hosted by reenactors, for reenactors. Our goal is that all who attend have a really good time doing what we all love to do.
Registration is greatly appreciated and will help us plan for the meal, porta-johns, etc. All we need is an email (TophatsSutlery@aol.com) or phone call (207-639-2889 The Little White Church Antiques) or send a message on our "Raid on the Sandy" facebook page with your contact info and numbers in attendance.
SEE YOU ON THE SANDY!
Take Amble Street which turns into the Wesley Spear Road past the rail yard, all the way to the end, and you are in camp. If you need additional assistance you can find Tophat's at 83 Main Street, "The Little White Church Antiques." Looking forward to seeing you here!
