2022 GAF Grand Muster
« on: October 06, 2021, 08:52:48 AM »
I will be hosting the 2022 Grand Muster, June 24, 25 & 26 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  41°40'16.24"N Latitude and  99°19'42.54"W Longitude you can see the Grand Muster site. Registration forms are available below Participation will be limited to 50 shooters. Registration is $75 before May 15; $80 after May 15. Extra banquet meals are $17.50 (for non-shooting wives, girlfriends, and children, ect.).

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. 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.

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.

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

The banquet will be at the Oscar's Palladium in Sargent and catered by Comstock Premier Lodge ( http://www.comstocklodge.com/ ) 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 this year during the Muster 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!

General:

I imagine it is a "cut and paste" error, but I see the text of the first line of your initial post reads:
"I will be hosting the 2021 Grand Muster, June 24, 25 & 26 at my farm."

I gather, however, that the specified days are correct?

Well worth the entry fee to have watched you run up and down those arroyos in the high heat wearing a wool capote, Troy!  ;) :D

Yeah...the main reason I didn't buy it was I couldn't figure when I'd be able to wear it.  My only thought was to the banquet, but I'm sure it would come off soon. ;D

.....yeah, hard to wear pretty much anything wool between May to October anymore. Since it seems to stay 85°± and 100% humidity during that time.
