Raffle fowler

I now have in my possession, our custom made English fowler made by Ken Netting for this year's Raffle. It is another beautiful firearm. I will post photos in another post but here are the specifics:

Hand made 50" .62 caliber round tapered barrel made by Mr. Netting! His barrels shoot fantastic!
Stocked in cherry with engraved brass furniture.
Jim Chambers firelock, engraved by Ken.
Stock has relief carving at tang with wrist inlay for your initials!

Tickets are being printed now, only 1000 will be sold. Priced at $5 per ticket or 3 for $10! I should have them by next week. I will post information on Frontier Folk for ticket sales and Mike Pullins, Ohio Valley p
Peddler, will also be selling them for us.



With the weather turning warmer, Schoenbrunn is preparing for another season of living history. Their first event will be the spring Lantern Tour on Saturday, May 19th. The tour begins at 7 pm till 10 pm. This is always a great time with the flowers in bloom and the cabins open for the first time since last years Trade Fair! I will be holding the first meeting of the year with the Village Staff prior to the Lantern Tour starting. We will be discussing everything from problems last year and ways to fix them to firewood supply, outside the Village vendors, schedules for the weekend, etc. If you are in the area, stop by and enjoy a nice evening at the Village.
