members who wish to march with the 2nd Corps. Color Guard must
be dressed in a WBTS Confederate Uniform and must inform Color Sgt. Joe Wright at least 48 hours in advance of their desire to participate
in an event in order to ensure that the proper equipment and
number of flags are provided. (Check the camp events page for
upcoming events). Since most organizations need to know months
in advance whether we have enough members to commit to an event,
we ask that you let us know as soon as you are relatively sure
that you can attend so we can determine if we have at least 5 members
to march in a parade or 3 who will be able to attend all other non-parade events. If we find that we will have enough participation, we will be able to commit to the event.
