The CHG has changed its Bylaws governing Non-Members and the Reciprocal Agreements it has with other reenactment clubs. Effective January 1st, 2014, the CHG will no longer participate in any Reciprocity Agreements with other reenactment organizations, with exception to the West Coast Historical Group. Non-Members may still participate at CHG and WCHG events, but will be required to pay a Temporary Membership, currently set at $10. The Temporary Membership gives limited membership status for the event they are participating in, thus satisfying insurance requirements and adequately compensating the CHG's and WCHG's efforts for hosting events.
Please note that if you are a CHG Member not current on your dues, you will need to pay the Temporary Membership or the Regular Membership dues at the event. You MUST be a member in either status to attend one of our events. Best pay your dues in advance!
CHG Photography Policy:The taking of digital photographs and video is reserved for paid CHG Members. The amount and nature should be such that it does not distract from the overall period nature of the event.
The CHG does not allow members of the public to come to our private tactical battle events. The CHG does accommodate Veterans, and Film Students; but only after a formal request has been made in person to the board to the nature of their request. If you are interesting in seeing one of our events, your best option is to join one of our member units. But regardless of who comes to an event, they must be in period clothing of the era as well as a proper haircut for the event as well.
Minimum Age Policy for Tactical Training Events: The preferred age for a regular member is 18 years of age. A member less than 18 years of age may be admitted to an tactical battle event if either accompanied at reenactments by a parent or legal guardian or, if not so accompanied, if a waiver of liability (click the icon to the right) signed by such parent or guardian is submitted to the Membership Chairman prior to such re-enactment. In no situation, however, may anyone under the age of 15 be admitted to tactical event.
