History[ edit ] Formation and the early years[ edit ] The club was formed on 5 March as Gloucester,  but the first recorded match came during —84 when a scratch team representing Cheltenham played a match against the new Gloucester side. During this era the club was noted as 'The Gloucestrians' and 'The Citizens' in local media. By they had assumed the name of Gloucester City once more and had become founder members of the Gloucestershire Northern Senior League.
Some things bother me more than others, and though I am far from perfect myself and indeed have been guilty of some of my own complaints in the pastI feel that the hobby as a whole would be greatly improved with a few changes. These are non-period-specific, and some apply more in some eras than others.
Washing your clothes so damn much! Letting your clothes show wear. If you must wash your reenacting clothes, wash them by hand in a sink or bathtub and hang dry them.
I have a confession to make: Most reenactors get the same wear out of their clothing in three years that their real life counterpart would have gotten in two weeks. As a result, many reenactors are far cleaner than they should be.
Your clothing should have an appropriate amount of wear, be that what it will, and should be correctly washed when you do so. Let them hang from a tree branch for a week, drag them around on the sidewalk a bit, etc. Using historical misogyny as an excuse for modern day misogyny.
There are plenty of ways to stay in period-appropriate gender roles without being an asshole.
Mindlessly following the instructions of those around you. Thinking of history solely as a series of wars and conflicts. Thinking about how to bring reenacting into the civilian realm.
If historians relied solely on reenactors to paint a portrait of history, future scholars would assume that history was just one big battle after another. I wish that more reenacting groups would think a bit more about how to recreate more than just military life.
Groups can do period dinners, picnics, dances, parties, even treks and hunting or camping trips. Adding in these kinds of activities not only makes the hobby more inclusive, but it also allows reenactors to gain a more nuanced understanding of the lives they portray.
Being so judgmental and fond of pointing fingers. Trying to educate and help out. It smacks of middle school elitism. Only doing impressions that are group oriented or that you know people already do.
If you think an impression is cool, then do it. Want to portray a Depression-era Okie refugee?
Want to portray 13th century Russians? Turning after hours at every event into a historical frat party. Having more period after hours activities.At the risk of sounding bitchy or starting a flame war, I have a few gripes with the reenacting hobby that I feel need airing.
I absolutely love reenacting, and after sixteen years in the hobby I’m not going to be leaving it any time soon, but as with everything, I feel that there’s always room for improvement.
