2012 Plainsmen Encampment and Shoot in Eastern Kansas

Caleb Hobbs:

I'm moving your information to the top to make it easier for folks to respond to. Thanks for taking this on. I'll be in touch.

Original Post: I am looking at putting on a TAPS event. The first thing that has to be done is to set a date. The KVC is putting on the GAF grand muster the first week in Oct. so that is out. I am looking at either the wknd of Sept 22 or 29. The KVC will also sponsor the event so the event will have insurance. If you are at least 50% sure you will be able to make the event, let me know which of the two dates would be best for your schedule. This would be a Thur. eve to Sun. timeframe.

Forgive me, but what is TAPS?

What is KVC?

And what is GAF?
