Birney's Divison School of Instruction in May

Birney's Division 2014 NCO/Officer School of Instruction
May 2-4, Perryopolis, PA

All members of Birney's Division are asked to attend, Company Commanders BRING YOUR TROOPS! This will be an opportunity for the entire Division to learn and practice together without the duties and time restraints at an event.

Birney's Division welcomes all units to participate in our Spring School of Instruction. This will be a weekend series of short classroom instructional sessions, coupled together with field drill experience. We know that many of you are experienced veterans with many years in the hobby and we hope that you will share than knowledge and experience with others. What we hope to accomplish is to allow as many recently promoted NCOs and officers the experience of conducting the maneuvers and practical tactics  we will use on the reenactment field.

Perryopolis is a facility located about 15 miles from Exit 75 (New Stanton) on the PA Turnpike. The training camp was designed and built by reenactors for reenactors with seven period heated buildings. This includes a two-story barracks that sleeps about 30. We will assign sleeping quarters on a first come first serve basis. There is an abundance of camping areas for others.

DIRECTIONS: Exit the PA Turnpike at New Stanton. Take I-70 West to the Rt. 515 Exit. Follow Rt. 515 to the 3rd light and make a left. Follow the signs to the CW camps in the back of the park. A light lunch will be available Saturday for a small fee.

Please send your Company information (including the number attending) to General Maffei at NO LATER THAN April 25, 2014.
