Editor's note: In an effort to keep our readership informed about the new products available to muzzleloading enthusiasts, as well as newsworthy events within the muzzleloading and reenactment communities, Muzzle Blasts Online will regularly publish press-release information from manufacturers, foundations, and other sources.

Muzzle Blasts Gains Honorable Mention
Award Association Trends, the national weekly newspaper for association executives and suppliers, has awarded Muzzle Blasts magazine (our paper parent) and the NMLRA an honorable mention in its Annual Competition for Excellence in Association Publications. Readers may remember that the Longhunter Journal, published by the NMLRA's hunting subsidiary, won the hobby publication category in 1994. We are very honored to be recognized two years in a row, and we hope to make it three.

NMLRA Eastern Primitive Rendezvous Video
Rendezvous Video The 1995 National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association's Eastern Primitive Rendezvous video is now available from Aurora Video Productions. This video features scenes of the Wyoming, New York, event last fall, and is filmed as if through the eyes of someone new to buckskinning. Running approximately 83 minutes, this tape gives an overview of the camp, interviews some of the artisans, and depicts life at that particular NMLRA rendezvous. (Of course, the camera caught many of those who attended the event enjoying themselves as only rendezvousers can.) Contact Aurora Video Productions at 2124 Center Street, East Aurora, NY 14052-9750; (716) 652-0136. Let them know you read about it in Muzzle Blasts.

National Historical Actors Directory
Craig Wilson, an historical actor who performs as ``Twas the Night Before Christmas'' poet Clement Moore, is compiling a national historical actors directory. Currently Mr. Wilson has the names of about 400 performers, and he would like to add more. To be listed with his directory, send a fact sheet about yourself and your character to Craig Wilson, 791 N. Azalea Blvd., Barberton, OH 44203.

Uncle Mike's New Equipment Bag
New Equipment Bag Michaels of Oregon has introduced a tough, easy-to-carry Sportsmen's Equipment Bag that's big enough for muzzleloading enthusiasts. The main compartment measures 26"x14"x10" and is closed by an industrial-grade nylon zipper with a reinforced snap-down storm flap. Three external pockets, nylon web wraparound handles, and an adjustable padded shoulder strap round out the bag's offerings. For a catalog, send $2 to Michaels of Oregon, P.O. Box 13010, Portland, OR 97213.

Reenactors Wanted for French Lick Celebration

In October 1996, the society wishes to fill Nashville's Riverfront Park with period-costumed people to celebrate the French Colonial history of the greater Mississippi Valley. For details about this exciting event, contact Mr. DeMunbrun at 3004 Beals Branch Drive, Louisville, KY 40206.
