I'm posting this message in as many places as I can because it would appear that word isn't getting out very well. I'm still seeing on Facebook and other groups that rumours are flying, so I would like to clear the record.
Most infantry and artillery reenacting groups in Canada have insurance through the National Firearms Association. What scares people is that on their website, there is a note that that there is a non-application of the policy for horse related activities. Many people have taken this to mean that any reenactment event that has horses present voids our insurance. This is absolutely NOT true. The Crown Forces Staff have been in contact with the NFA and their representatives, and have clarified the position through lawyers. As long as the event we are at (Fort Erie for example) has their own insurance for the event (they do) and the cavalry units have their own insurance (they do), our insurance is not affected.
Please spread this message as widely as you can in an effort to stop this rumour. Also, if you have any questions about this, please feel free to contact me and I will do my best. I worry a little bit that if people keep asking the NFA about this, they will start to think maybe they shouldn't be covering us...:)
