Pony Express,  Wouold love to be there but I had to beg off of the Kansas State Shoot that same weekend due to gas line problems at the house we are restoring. Would rather miss a shoot than watch fire shoot out of the ground as it winds its way towards a high-dollar investment. Still planning to be at Branson next week. Hope it is warm as I kinda miss those 90s in October
in South Texas. Not about to miss Muster 2010.

I totally understand! Flames and smoke from black powder is a good thing, but fire shooting out of the ground in the back yard.......not so good.

It looks like most of the folks at the GAF shoot had some form of Greatcoat to wear in the cold weather. Hopefully we want need something like that next year here in Texas.

13, October 1876 (+133)

To: General U. S. Scout
Headquarters Grand Army of the Frontier
Near Washington City

Copies to: (Bvt.) Col. Major Matt Lewis Chief of Staff,
        (Bvt.) Col. Captain Barrett acting Chief of Staff,
        (Bvt.) Col. Drydock Chief of Ordnance,  
         (Bvt. ) Col. Bull Schmidt Adjutant ,
and The ladies and gentlemen of the GAF at large

Sir:

I have the honor to submit my report following the 2009 Grand Muster of the Grand Army of the Frontier.

I moved into my temporary quarters at Fort Hartsuff Thursday 8 October afternoon only to have my presence required at near Willow Springs on Thursday evening. I returned to Fort Hartsuff Thursday evening at approximately 21:30. The Texas contingent had arrived Wednesday evening. The most of rest of the men arrived late Thursday afternoon and evening.

Friday morning the men breakfasted on a hearty breakfast of biscuits and gravy that Delmonico had prepared. The men departed for the scout by buggy, buckboard or whatever other means available. Upon arrival at the sight of the anticipated action, operations commenced with the long range rifle and long range pistol matches which ran concurrently. The match was found to be quite challenging as the top shooter only managed 11 hits out of 15 shots. The men fared better on the long range pistol course and the top place had to be decided in a sudden death tie breaker as Col. Diamond and Lt. Col. Cherry Lake Jake each cleaned the match. In the end Lt. Col. Cherry Lake Jake took top honors. At noon Captain Delmonico brought a hearty meal of stew to the Army’s field headquarters. Following the mid-day break the men found themselves occupied with the Wild Bunch side match. After setting targets the command returned to the barracks. After restoring ourselves with an outstanding evening meal we busied ourselves with preparations for the coming day’s action and renewing old acquaintances.

During the night one of the Texicans gleefully reported that during a trip to the latrine he had discovered that it was snowing… heavily! After comments questioning the Texas contingent’s intelligence and or sanity the men returned to sleep to rest for what promised to be a strenuous and cold two days. We awoke the next morning to nearly 6” of snow.

I had deemed it necessary to divide the command into three nearly equal columns in the hopes that we might engage the hostiles in a pincers movement. This proved impractical as the resultant columns were below full strength. I therefore divided the third column between the first two and we pitched in. At noon we retired to the barracks to warm ourselves with a cup of hot coffee and a fine meal by Delmonico and his assistant Rick. Following the meal we returned to the field and the men performed admirably. At the end of the day we placed the next day’s targets and returned to the post to prepare for photos and the banquet. Following a grand meal the bounteous door prizes were awarded. Each of the participants received at least 2 door prizes. I should here express my gratitude to the members of the door prize committee consisting of Major River City John, Lt. Col. Capt. Larry Little, Major Bow View Haymaker, Lt. Col. Mustang Gregg. Their tireless effort resulted in an almost unbelievable number of prizes. Following the distribution of the door prizes a few speeches were made including one by my Sgt. Major, Texas Sarge explaining the benefits of the site of the upcoming 2010 Grand Muster in Lockhart Texas.

Sunday morning we once again launched into action in spite of temperatures that were once again in the low 20’s. The snow greatly impeded our progress and we were not able to complete all 10 planned stages. We returned to Fort Hartsuff and dined together again one last time. While the men policed up the barracks and surrounding area Lt. Col. Tagalon and I totaled the scores, which are as follow:

Brigade Champion:
(Bvt.) Col. Drydock (1st place Mil-Spec. repeater, 1st place dress Uniform)
I would like to also congratulate here, Cherry Lake Kate from the Division of Minnesota. While her uniform was superb and her shooting was outstanding (she had 4 clean stages) she was unable to dislodge Col. Drydock from his place atop the Brigade Champion standings due to, at least in part, the fact that her 2 wins were uncontestedand therefore earned only 8 points instead of the full 10. Some time back some concern was raised that a woman would not ever be able to win an Iron Trooper. I believe Kate’s accomplishments should have dispelled that myth.

The Division of Missouri won the Division Plate race. Col. Dydock lead the way for the Division by winning both the Mil-Spec. repeater and dress uniform contests.

   Ladies Lever Action:
      Cherry Lake Kate
The Battle Rifle Classes continue to grow and gain in popularity. It was very gratifying to see the strides made by the men and women of the Grand Army of the Frontier in terms of equipping themselves with Battle Rifles and historically accurate uniforms. Of the nearly 30 participants, only about 20 percent participated in the scout classes. Just four short years  ago everyone except Col. Robson completed the course of fire with Lever guns. Now battle rifles out number the standard cowboy guns by nearly 5 to one.
I personally enjoy unique matches, ones that allow participants to do or see something that they won’t get to experience anywhere else. This year’s match allowed that if for no other reason than the opportunity to shoot in greatcoats and fur caps.
It has been my honor and privilege to serve the Grand Army of the Frontier as the Grand Muster director the last two years, but I look forward to next year’s match at Lockhart Texas.

Great time, great stages, great food great prizes, great people.  Battle rifles everywhere.  Uniforms!  An 1891 Argentinian army uniform to go with an M1891 Argentinian Mauser! Rolling blocks, Krags, Trapdoors, an MLE and a Martini Henri from our Canadian contignent.  Colt New Army and Navys.  The General put in an appearance.  Charles Isaac from the Department of the Atlantic showed up and put on a Clinic with his Krag.  Rattlesnake Jacks legs made another appearance. Montgomery Little got his name in the rules with a 211 yard pistol shot.

 Wait'll ya'll see the pictures!

 Lots of stuff to hand out.  Staying in an 1870s barracks was a treat, perhaps the only time I'll ever get to do that.  Y'all missed something special

I was on an inspector tour of the Arizona Territory immediately after the Grand Muster so had to wait until today to read the results.  I fully concur with Lt Col Drydock's assessment.  The number of uniforms and military issue longarms was simply amazing and without any doubt indicates the GAF is here to stay.  I'm already planning for next year's Grand Muster - and will probably drive just so I can take a sufficient number of firearms (flying is such a royal pain now).

Sir:

I have the honor to submit my report following the 2009 Grand Muster of the Grand Army of the Frontier.

......

(Bvt.) Col. Jerry M. Davenport

Col Davenport,

An excellent report on the 2009 Grand Muster.  It'll serve you well when you come up for promotion in a few years.

I can only add that I had an excellent time myself, though I had to leave before the Grand Muster was completed, and I also look forward to the next Grand Muster in Texas.  Based on discussions heard both at the Grand Muster and in the Barracks, I fully expect to see even more battle rifles and uniforms in evidence. 

Being able to use an original Army barracks for the Muster was a real priviledge and one that I expect we'll not be able to do again for some time to come.

As always, Delmonico's meals were a real treat and he and his assistant (whose name I can't remember and must apologize for) did excellent service.

With so many excellent uniforms in appearance, we seriously need to begin considering awarding 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for both the field and dress uniform competitions at future Grand Musters, as well as establishing a more formal grading system so that everyone knows what is expected.  Col Rattlesnake Jack, Lt Col Drydock, and yourself have all set the standard that needs to be achieved to become a  Brigade Champion.

Well done for putting on an outstanding Grand Muster.

...I know the National Muster goes to Texas next year, but we're going to do something here, too.  Planning is already in progress!


Ned,

We have always encouraged each Department to hold a Department Muster.  This would allow those who can't travel to a Grand Muster to still be able to shoot a GAF style match. 

Eventually, what I'd like to do is get every Department to hold its own Muster, with one of them being designated as the Grand Muster so that the Grand Muster is held periodically in each Department.

Returning to the "Muster photos" aspect of this thread, here are a number of images from the Sunday shooting -

Although the thermometer purported to tell us that it was actually warmer than the previous day, lack of sunshine and the fairly strong wind made the conditions much less enjoyable -





















The following two shots happen to capture the First, Second and Third Place winners in the "Milspec Single Shot, Black Powder" battle rifle category ....

As Tony the Tiger would say, The GAF National Muster was GRRRRRRRRREAT! Grin Grin Grin Grin

A great big WELL DONE to Col. Pitsptr.

Great camaraderie.
Great food, Del you outdid yourself as usual.
GREAT SHOOTING, some very interesting stages. Well done to all the stage writers.
Great prizes. The next prize committee are going to have their hands full topping this years committee. I'm sure the Texans will rise to the task.

I had a GREAT time and learned a lot, as I have only been shooting this type of shooting for a couple of years. to my brother Capt. Little, Col. Diamond, Sgt. Drydock and any others  for all their tips and encouragement. A GREAT BIG THANKS.   

I would like to congratulate all the award winners.

Sgt. Drydock on his Brigade Champion Award, well deserved.

I think we need an award for best looking legs, my, my what a sight Rattlesnake Jack. Grin Grin Grin Grin

THANKS TO ALL

May you all ride a good horse.

I enjoyed seeing the pictures of the 09 Muster, it was almost as go as being there. I missed not getting to sleep in the Barracks this year. I'm glad the weather didn't dampen the spirits of the participants this year.

Col. Robson
I'm sure glad you got a photo of "Water Carrier Ravine". I'm kind of proud of that stage. It's one you won't see every day in the CAS world.

For those who weren't here, all of the stages were based on MoH or Victoria Cross engagements. This particular stage was written in memory of Blacksmith Henry Mechlin's MoH action at Water Carrier Ravine on the Little Bighorn. The 10 "shoot" targets were to be engaged nearest to furthest and then back to the nearest with care taken to not hit the 2 water carriers (the 2 blue targets)

Col Pitspitr:

Actually, all the Sunday shooting photos were taken by Roger ......  Unfortunately, he (or his camera) did not perform well in cold and/or low-light conditions.  The shooting images I posted were about all I could salvage from the total number of photos he has given me  - almost all of which were very dark, or blurred ... or both.  (Apparently, there were many others that were totally hopeless, which he didn't even bother to copy to the disc he gave me.)  As it was, I had to work quite extensively with the ones I posted to brighten and/or sharpen them up.  

(I think the problem is Roger and not his camera, frankly - even when he uses my camera the shot is usually messed up ....   Undecided )

In that vein, below is the only image he got of me on Saturday evening.   That is the best I can make it look .....  Did anyone get a good full-length shot of me in my re-vamped Highland dress uniform, by any chance?  (As I mentioned in earlier postings, it has been changed to the 5th Royal Scots of Canada, from the British Black Watch regiment of the same era, with different patterns of sporran, stockings, gold lace, etc. .... and by extensive re-badging  ......

FWIW, I'm also attaching a rather poor shot (cropped from a much larger picture) of my new Pattern 1881 helmet plate, configured for the 5th Royal Scots of Canada -

Here are some photos from the Saturday banquet.  (For some reason, today I can't get a post to load here with links to photos in my PhotoBucket account, so I am reverting to the option of uploading them here, though the size-limit per message will undoubtedly require several postings

The only other photo of Roger's which turned out is attached to this message, followed by others I got -

Every time I try and post a pic from the event the forum tells me the attachment is too large.

Photobucket sized to 640X480 works the best, they have to be under 100k to attach.  If you E-mail them I'd be glad to use my photobucket account and post them for you.

Actually, for attaching photos directly to a message here, the limits are:

- maximum size of 150 KB per image

- maximum of four images per message

- total of all attachments cannot exceed 350 KB per message

You need to determine the file size of the images you are trying to attach. If you are trying to use them as they came off the camera, they are undoubtedly much too large.  In fact, high-resolution digital photos can be several megabytes in size - i.e. potentially hundreds of times too large for posting on this forum.  However, you can save smaller versions  - for example, mine on this thread are a maximum of 750 pixels wide - at much lower resolution (no more than 150 or so is necessary for computer display) and attach those to your messages.

(You don't necessarily want to erase your original high-resolution image files, however - if you want to make prints .... especially of a detail cropped from the full-size image ..... you need all the original data for best quality.)

Any recommendations for a photo resizer(preferably a free one) for my vista laptop? I use the powertoys one on my desk top pc, but it's running XP. I tried to use the "powertoys image resizer clone for vista" but for some reason my computer can't open the install file.

For me, it's better to have the smaller thumbnail size pics, than post the full size ones. I can't vew most of them if there's lots of big pics. Living in the country has lots of advantages, but super slow dial up isn't one of them!

You can resize by making a copy, opening it in paint go to "image" then attributes and set it to a smaller size.
