Sir:

I have the honor to submit my report following the 2013 Department of the Missouri Headquarters Muster of the Grand Army of the Frontier

My preparations continued Wednesday, July 10 when the Commissary Department Chief Delmonico arrived. Several unexpected problems extended the time needed to complete preparations for the muster; however the preparations were completed by the time the muster was scheduled to begin.

Friday morning operations commenced with the Expansion Era Match side match.

Following lunch the group commenced the long range rifle match. The 300 yard long range rifle match was found to be quite challenging. This long range match was a paper match. The participants were allowed the afternoon to sight in their rifles.  After the weather cooled a bit the command shot the match.

The Main match used the same skirmish format as the Expansion Era Match did. One of the highlights of the Main match was a new permanent target called “the Moro.” For a look at the the Moro see the 2013 Department of Missouri Muster Photo & Video Thread  in the barracks. The men mostly completed the match by Saturday evening, but a few needed Sunday morning to complete the main match last stage and the sharpshooters match.

I totaled the scores early Sunday morning and the certificates were awarded to the men. At this point we broke camp and the men returned to their home quarters

Our mess consisted of 10 shooting participants excluding camp followers. This number was off several from last year due to work and personal conflicts.

Here I should thank a number of people: The Broken Bow Lions Club for sponsoring the insurance; Lt. Col. Dusty Tagalon for printing the winners certificates; Lt. Col. Ned Neiderlander, for building the traveling trophies and his efforts building camp equipage, the targets and props and finally Capt. Delmonico. For those of you who missed this match, the food alone was reason enough to come to this Muster. It is simply amazing what Delmonico can make in dutch ovens. Thanks Glen!
