I went out there a few years back.  The Cavalry School is no longer in session, but there is one somewhere in the US.  The old fort is getting torn down, but I don't know how much is gone.  The 2021 contest is in September 2021 and is usually worth watching.  I imagine it will be cancelled, but with the exception of the wagons, you don't have to get too close.

I'm on the USCA Board and "so far, so good."   ;)  We are just about packed and ready to head out on Friday.  As a member of management I get to "sweat" a bit for cause as we are usually the "worker bees" that make things happen. 

I'm also the co-director of the Major Howze Mobility Test.  In this event a team of not more than 8 riders must transit a course of 7-8 miles and then perform a saber charge against simulated enemy figures.  It is a remembrance of an event during the Punitive Expedition.  It is a timed event and the team must meet their time by plus or minus two minutes.  This is a challenge for the team leader.  It is quite a production and sometimes the cause of both humor and anxiety. 
 
If you want to learn more go to  https://uscavalryassociation.org/  and click on "Events."  Your support of the USCA is encouraged and membership information is under the "Join" link. 

It's a pretty good show and we've got social functions on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings.

We have some Federally imposed standards on "social gathering" indoors, but outdoors is pretty much open (no pun intended).

Sad Full Disclosure:  We are at the Fort by the sufferance of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the owners of the Fort.  The local administration has traditionally been VERY supportive of our event but are subject to the direction of the President in how they operate.  We can get "shut down" by a single phone call.  So far that has not happened.  Lord Willing, it won't.

If you're in the area come by and say "hello."  I'm the guy in the Navy uniform!!!  :)

Hi Quentin
I'll try to get out there, but I have conflicts.  I'll wear my Gray John Wayne Cavalry hat from the Trilogy if I go.

Hi Quentin
The plan is to pick up a guy I work with, head to Cattleman's for breakfast, and head to Fort Reno.  See you tomorrow.
