A little history ...
The collection bearing the Reich banns has a long tradition. Originally called "Whitsun meeting" by the Company of Saynt Goerge founded, it now takes place in the 2-year rhythm of the approved place, a youth campsite near the small village Hinterweidenthal, near Pirmasens, instead. Hundreds of performers of the time window late 15tes century from all over Europe meet here, in order to shape one of the few truly internal events of the Living Historys to practice military drill time to fencing to act, exchange news, celebrations ... in short: Fun have to.
The assembly camp
The background of the event is the presentation of a - hypothetical collection bearing the imperial contingent troops of the German Empire site, just before the march to Neuss to relieve the Bold, Duke of Burgundy, in 1474 this of the siege by Karl ( more here for historical background ). For this purpose, a military camp in the build-up of course is based on contemporary sources of the given options-built in the frame, including storage fixture, gate, guards tent arrangement, kitchens, etc. The event will focus on the military part, which does not mean, however, that not even can-because participating performer with purely civilian focus in mind as a large stock always also attracted a lot of people with who were trying to make money, and was supported by many professional groups, such as blacksmiths, carpenters, cooks, counselors ...

Part of the daily program is first of all the military drill. To this end, all men are assigned to the respective military units with the appropriate equipment, and patterned. The exercises are carried out under the guidance of experienced performers on the basis of the contemporary source location, both technically (historical fencing techniques), as well as operationally, if reconstructed
Also part of the "program" are very attenuated "Game deposits", in which a certain scene is recreated, for example, a Greichtsverhandlung. This is also done based on the known source location, but of course with a dose of tongue in cheek
Already long tradition has the "ceiling market," no longer needed on the performer, or sell surplus items to other or replace-able. Typically, this is very good, especially in the beginning of his career performers to increase their own equipment.
Part of a military camp is of course the security service, which is distributed to all groups, and is performed throughout
Soldiers also have never been averse to the conversation, so it is-depending on availability of musicians and opportunity-like and the evening dance and music (and Würfelspiell, but that no one notices only by the officers ...)
We are always looking for musicians who have appropriate equipment to contribute to the event!
Planned for this year is a lottery according to the historical model.
Wherever band together soldiers, at any point automatically creates a place where alcoholic beverages are consumed easily. A serving of (gekühltem!) beer and other beverages is therefore essential.
Rumored to zwilichtiges rabble hanging around in the area, and the enemy followed the movements of the kingdom banns with Argus eyes. It is on the representation of a military camp, so always eyes!
