    Default WWII Reenactment this weekend - Stow MA

    Saw this being advertised tonight. Never heard of this before, but it looks like a pretty cool event. It's at someplace called the Collins Foundation in Stow. According to the advertisement there will be WWII aircraft, artillery, tanks, troops, etc participating in a reenactment of Allied forces trying to take a German controlled airfield.

    Here's the web site.

    http://www.collingsfoundation.org/cf_battle2010.htm

    The Collings Foundation Hosts:
    Battle for the Airfield
    WWII Reenactment and WWII Living History Weekend
    October 9th and 10th

    Picture this:
    Allied Forces knew the exact coordinates of the German encampment. The night before an elite German force over took a small grass airstrip just a few hundred feet away. The Allied Forces had to gain control of this airfield so they could fly in much-needed supplies. - It was going to be a tough fight.

    How will the battle end? Will the Allied troops be able to gain control of the airfield and further their advancement? You will have to be here to find out. The Collings Foundation will host a Living History event you will never forget. You will be able to see original equipment from WWII in action. Everything from the cooking utensils to M1 rifles is original. Hear incredible stories directly from WWII Veterans during the Veteran's Roundtable discussion.
    The only event of this type - in the world. Ė Donít miss it!

    Stow, not Stowe RR1. The folks that founded Stowe, VT were actually from Stow, MA. They added the "e" to keep things different.

    fack, I just lost a long post on this- just go- you'll like it. Pay attention to when they are about to light off the 88mm.

    A gun is like a parachute - If you need one and do not have one you probably will not need one again

    This event is happening October 12-13. 2013.
    Is is well worth attending. If you have an interest in WWII Weapons, or history this event is well done. Aircraft, tanks, the battle reenactment. Really cool.
