Yes, though Olafson is considering building a straw shelter.

I discussed it with Duuring yesterday evening and I have enough stuff to help out Duuring and equip you, riddlez. Includes greatcoat aswell and blankets. Just need to get a new pair of shoes (Which is no problem), because I do not want to see anyone running around with these fucked up shoes I usually lend out. Not during the winter. 

If you want I can even issue you the Pokalem instead of the bonnet that we usually wear. Reason for that is that its nice snugly and warm, because it basically is a modern winter cap.

Anyway, I asked the organisation if we can sleep inside and they said that there is place left. However it seems to be in semi-modern basement with heating and insulation. So not sure if we really want that.
I have 2 tents, so that's more than enough for us, although I was planning to sleep without one. It simply is a lot warmer right next to the fire than it is inside a tent (and for most situations, but for garrison duty, more accurate). If possible I was also planning on just building a nice make up shelter.

The orga is providing straw for sleeping on and extra much straw for isolating your tent... Which we could use to just sleep on, because its fucking awesome to sleep in a pile of straw. They also provide firewood.

Here is a tip, always show up to reenactments on saturdays, because sundays a lot of people leave early.

Right. That's quite awesome. Would indeed also be interesting tp put a face behind the profile pic. =D
Sounds interesting as a whole.
Probably one of the very few old-timers here who hasn't been a regimental leader.

Haven't seen you lot in action yet :P Which is so weird, considering I am on many Dutch events.

I think so, Fabian just kinda appears and then disappears for a while when it comes to our events. That said, I wonder what side we'll be on during Loevestein. I think it might be French.

Maybe we will be in the same line then. What drill book do you guys follow? French or Dutch?

Wait, so is it for certain that you will be there? Can you add me in steam, if that is the case?

Also, here is the drill:
