Company Introduction, Drill Practice, and Cookout

Wondering if Goode’s Company is a group that would suit you? On June 30th, 1:00 – 3:00pm, we will be having drill practice at Cowen Park in Seattle. This will include an introduction to the company for interested newcomers, and also some basic training in actions with the pike. Period clothing is not required for this event. At three o’clock or so, we will stow the pikes and repair to the Lieutenant’s house nearby for an afternoon cookout, libations, and socializing.

Anyone is welcome to drop by and see what we do. If you have questions, feel free to drop us a line using the contact form on our website or via our Facebook page.

Goode’s Company Returns to Armed Forces Day at JBLM

Goode’s Company Captures a German Machine Gun in 2010. It was malfunctioning, but we don’t tell that part over drinks.

On May 18th, Goode’s Company will join a number of other historical education and reenactment groups at the Armed Forces Day celebration at Joint Base Lewis-McChord. There, we expect to see old friends, do some training, bring members of the public into our ranks to learn pike actions, and generally look for mischief including the traditional “Grande Melee” wherein we take the field with Romans, Civil War reenactors, the Wermacht, and turn-of-the-last-century RoughRiders in an awesome and surreal cross-time mixup (in which we generally get wiped out pretty quickly by the guys with machine guns).

New Version of The Booke of Dryl Available

I have posted a new, revised version of the Shepshetshire Booke of Dryl in the Recommended Reading section. I’ve spent the last four or five days bringing it up to our current practices and adding some additional material where necessary. All Goode’s Company members should take a look at it and make sure they’re up to date.
