Boers, Boxers, Moros, and Zulu's

I will be hosting the 2019 Grand Muster, June 28, 29 & 30 at my farm.  

This Muster will be open to anyone in the GAF. If not currently a member I can help you register. (Membership in the GAF is free and easy) By using Google Earth and going to  4140'16.24"N Latitude and  9919'42.54"W Longitude you can see the Grand Muster site. Registration forms are available below and on the dispatches page of the Grand Army's Web site. Participation will be limited to 45 shooters. Registration is $85 Extra banquet meals are $17.50 (for non-shooting wives, girlfriends, and children, ect.). Meals will be available on site from Delmonico. Those wishing to attend but not compete may do so without registration fee, but be sure to pay the meal fee if you plan to eat with us.

The planned activities include: a 3 stage GAF steel target main match, a Long Range Rifle match, a Precision Pistol match and a GAF Expansion Era Match. While 3 stages for the main match doesn't sound like much, these three stages will be of the skirmish format and will feature about 20 knock down targets per stage. Stage design will recount scenes from the struggle to retain empires around the world between 1874 and 1899. Round counts will be dependent on the number of times the shooter needs to shoot at each target to get it to fall. 100 rounds at least would be a good plan. This is a match that participants say truly needs to be experienced to be fully appreciated and another described as "The finest Victorian military firearms shooting match in the world."

Shooters will be able to sight in their rifles on Thursday and Friday afternoon and evening. Sighting in your rifles for the distances used is STRONGLY encouraged.

Long Range Rifle will be 100-300yds. on armor so full power jacketed bullets are fine for it.

This muster will be a primitive camping event. We will have a tent city and I have tentage for about 10 individuals if you don't have your own contact me, I can help. We should have plenty of time to sit around the campfire and visit.

The average high temperature in this area on June 30th is around 87 degrees

I've attached a FAQ sheet and a suggested equipment list.

We expect to run 3 or 4 Squads shooting concurrently. Each squad will cycle through each of the 3 main match stages, the long range match and the sidearm match on Saturday. The Long Range Match and the Precision Pistol Match will each be treated as a stage. We will run ahead of schedule if possible. We should be finished shooting the match by Saturday evening with awards presentation Saturday evening at the banquet if possible; however, if we run behind we will finish up Sunday morning. That also leaves Sunday available for happy fire and use of the Howitzer and Gattling if it returns.

If you have a UTV/ATV that you would like to bring, you are welcome use it between stages.

The banquet will return to the Comstock Premier Lodge ( http://www.comstocklodge.com/ ) for 2019 and the price of the banquet is included in your registration. If you are bringing a spouse or child who isn't a registered shooter the cost of an extra ticket for them is $17.50 Lodging is available at the lodge as well. If you are considering staying at the Comstock Lodge, don't wait too long to make reservations. I know at least one room was booked Saturday night for next year's muster. I've also reserved a block of rooms at the Wildlife Inn at nearby Taylor as well (308-942-6234) early registration is also suggested. We bought out both facilities in full in 2018.

The Grand Muster falls on the same weekend as the local city fair and the High School Alumni reunions so all area motels WILL sell out. If planning to stay in a motel MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS EARLY!

With just under 9 months until the 2019 Grand Muster we are already 29% full. Don't wait until the last minute to make your reservations!

Looks like my idea to go with portraying a member of the 20th Kansas Volunteers will fit right into 2019's theme.  They were among the first units to come into combat with the Filipino insurgents immediately after the Span-Am War.
