Frank Hamer and I plan to attend both matches.  G Moll has to work.  One of these days I'll get around to mailing out the registration form.  Still working on the GAF uniforms and loads but we're planning on being there.

BR, if you've got cowboy guns, then you've got all you need for the GAF match. There is no uniform requirement.  No shotgun is used in either match.  Camping on the range.

No shotgun is used in either match.
Meaning the Main Match or the Expansion Era match of the GAF shoot. We will be using shotguns for the AZSA portion of the match if you choose. I usually just shoot the rifle pistol class but all AZSA classes will be available.

Registration is $75. That gets you into both matches, but it isn't any less if you only shoot one of the matches. It's 2 for the price of 1 but isn't half price. The point of doing this is to promote both disciplines and encourage people to try the other one that they've never tried before.

Yes there is camping on site and we even have a shower  ;D

I'm attaching a pdf with FAQ's and suggested equipment for the GAF portion of the match to this post.

As a note, do bring a mess kit, disposable ones are OK, but it increases the trash that has to be removed by a large facto.  We have facilities to wash these although you will have to do your own, we really don't have a Russian maid. ;)

Just a quick note about costumes for the Zoot match.  In an attempt to keep it from becoming a military reenactment sport (not that I think that’s bad) Hustler prohibited all military uniforms.  I convinced him to revise that to allow military uniforms if they had a relationship to the prohibition era.  Some examples would be Coast Guard, RCMP or Mexican Federalies.  If you want to wear a 20s or 30s uniform please be creative with your back story. 

On the other hand AZSA costumes are really easy.  Just about any Good Will store (you may have to hit more than one) will provide most everything you need.  A bit oversized suit (single or double breasted, with or without a vest, the wider the lapels the better) will be great.  If you’re going to wear a tie with that suit remember to tie it short so it ends at about mid stomach.
 
How about knickers, very popular in the 20’s and not just for golf but that’s a great AZSA costume as well.  If you can’t find knickers any loose fitting pants bloused just below the knee with a big rubber band will give you the look.  Hang them from a pair of suspenders (even I can sew buttons on a pair of pants) and you’re good to go. 

Button up shirts and sweaters were popular but t shirts weren’t.  As a matter of fact what the kids today call a “wife beater” was the t shirt style of choice in that time but noone would wear just a t shirt out of the house. 
 
Everyone wore a hat and the first thing everyone thinks about is the fedora, but remember, the snap brim (driver style) hats were almost as popular.  In the west the cowboy hat never gave way to the fedora.  How about a straw boater or skimmer, this was the summer time hat of choice for many a man in the 20s and 30s.

Hope that helps.
Happy Trails
