2008 GAF Grand Muster Photos
« on: October 06, 2008, 10:48:35 am »
I'm going to start a thread with pictures of the Muster. I hope anyone else with good photos will share some of them here. I pretty much only got pictures on Friday.

Our Department Commander at the Ball Friday in his interpretation as a local Buffler hunter and scout, "Little Buckshot" Conrad Wentworth. "Scruffy Skippy" seated on right.



l. to r.
"Windy City Joe", "Curly LaGrande", "Cherry Lake Jake", "Cherry Lake Kate"



"Bow View Haymaker", "Shalako Al", "Major Matt Lewis" timing "Cherry Lake Kate", "Scooter" on the far right, and a gentleman I did not catch the name. Which I regret because he was great to shoot with and even politely laughed at my jokes.



"Dusty Tagalong" demonstrating how to tickle with a pitchfork.



Steffan and family also prepared and served lunch Saturday. Thanks, Dad, for the rabbit ears. :D



The Enlisted Men's Barracks where we all stayed. I have a lot of interior shots of the Barracks, but unfortunately there seem to be a lot of old men in their underwear standing about, so I will forgo printing them. Others I will have to do some doctoring because the light level was very low and they are very dark.



"Rattlesnake Jack" in action with his .577 Martini-Henry.



"Dusty Tagalong" and "Megan O'Ruckus". "Guns Garrett"'s campaign hat is seen behind his lovely bride's head. Wish I had checked the shot and shifted everyone.



The infamous bonus rifle target from the hill. Look for the faint red target at the base of the tree line above the left shoulder rank bar on "Curly"'s buckskin coat.

Looks like I have the honor to post the first photos of the new "Iron Trooper Medal" that the Brigade Champion earns. They are solid silver including the clasp. Rattlesnake Jack took home the 2008 medal.

Oh and while the troops were off on patrol, the cooks fed themselves and also park personal:



Excuse the plate, only us and the cheese steak knew. ;D

Didn't know about delivery service, so we made our own:

The white ribboned medal is a GAF 3rd Place finish in a Muster Event and the Red and White one is for an NCOWS Nationals placing I believe.

The NCOWS medal was chosen to replace another GAF medal won- I believe, awarded the second Muster. Those were the medals that were practically dinner plate size, if you remember. They just do not look right on a uniform, so as the Muster was conducted under NCOWS rules in the beginning it was an appropriate substitution.
