I'm in the process of purchasing my first flintlock rifle and she is gorgeous. I was wondering if there were any reenactment groups in the Rochester area and if not who'd be interested in starting one up?

You could try 'Little Beards Club', based in York. I don't know who you contact for information.

Is your flintlock time period appropriate?

why don't you contact the folks over at Fort Ticonderoga? they could probably put you on the right track. they host F&I and RevWar re-enactments and know all the players

True never thought of that but that fort is a haul for me and was wondering if there was anyone in this area that did it to get something going at Genesee country museum or something

There used to be a listing of clubs in New York that were affiliated with New York Muzzleloader Rifle Association, and I believe the National Muzzleloader rifle Association also listed clubs. Maybe you are better at searching this thing than I am, cause I cannot find the sites that list the clubs. There was one, I think in Williamsville, another called land of the Senecas If I remember right I think it was near Seneca lake, and the one I already mentioned, the Little Beards Club, they have a camp site on the Genessee River.Those are the closest ones to the Rochester area that I know of. The Museum does have re-enactors from time to time, but they are not formally connected to the museum, though they may be able to help you with a phone number or two.
