Fellow Roman Re-enactors:

I wanted to extend a personal invitation to all of you to attend Castra Romana-Atlanta, hosted by Legio XI Claudia Pia Fidelis, 14-17 June 2007 in Atlanta, GA.

This event is being held in conjunction with the US Army's 232nd Birthday celebration on Fort McPherson, GA. For more information on the event itself, I would refer you to the following websites:

While I know that many of you have a busy schedule (especially those of you who, like me, intend to be there for Roman Days with Matthew [Amt, Commander, Twentieth Legion/Maryland, US]), we believe that this event will offer a great opportunity to show the professionalism of the Roman army to the professionals of the US Army.

Friends and families are welcome, and the Army is sponsoring many, many activities for family members.

Please try to work us into your schedules, and help me pass this invitation along to other re-enactors who might also be interested.
