Infrastructure equipment

Here you will find information regarding some of the event supporting infrastructure like tents, heaters, generators etc. While most attendees probably do not need to know all of this stuff, we provide it as a resource to those attendees who are interested in purchasing their own period correct military tents or heaters. Any attendees who will be billeting in a heater equipped tent should make it a point to seek out the manual and any information on the heater in use so that they have an idea how the system works. Used correctly, heaters are a positively wonderful experience. Used incorrectly, they are at best annoying and at worst, deadly.
