Weekend information:

The Second Convention will be held in tandem with the Connecticut Colony Military Association's 8th Annual "School of the Soldier & Distaff Training Days".  This will afford medical convention participants with an even broader range of interpretive, social and situational training exercises.

Saturday the medical convention participants will spend most of the day in Hartford at the Menzcer Museum.  Saturday evening dinner is on your own.  Many local restaurants are closeby for those wishing to go off-grounds.  We hope that many participants will go out together as a group to provide for even more networking and lively discussion.

Sunday will find the convention participants having plenty of time for peer resource sharing, demonstrations and practice demonstrations on various period medical treatments, surgery techniques, special effects to enhance your presentations, etc.

All medical participants are encouraged to dress in period attire at all times, bring whatever medical "kits" they use in living history portrayals and any lists of resource, reference materials they would like to share with others interested in the field of 18th c. medicinal arts.
