Slim, I wish you could have been up there with us. It was a long drive for me. I thought about not going because of the pain in my shoulder from the shingles. Then I thought I might not get another chance to go. Now that I'm an Ol' retired Cop, my schedule is pretty flexible now. I just backed my ears and went for it. I was goin' to spend the night in Kansas and then drive in the second day. I could not lock the bed cover on my truck so I just kept drivin. I got out to the turnoff about 0300. I slept in the truck till 0500. I went back to Ord and went through the drive through at Micky Dee's. I got a big Coffee and a sausage bisquit. I went back out to the Fort and unloaded the truck. Texas Sarge and Scooter(the other two Texans) were the only ones in the Barracks. Del got there Thurday afternoon. Everyone got there Thrusday night and Friday morning. Stayin' in the Barracks was a Blast. I didn't suffer any withdrawl from lack of Laptop or TV. We could use a good Shower area out there.

AND A GREAT TIME WAS HAD BY ALL!!!

Weather was wonderful, fellow shooters were polite, helpful and down-right fine Ladies and Gentleman. It has been quite a few years since I have seen such enjoyable fotos, food and fellowship (not to mention Stephan's home-built WW I  courrier's motor
cycle).  Steelhorse,  start planning right now for next year as I am sure we can get you from western IL. on to Nebrasky.

The greatest surprise was gas in KC at $2.84(only saw this at one station) and $3.05 in Grand Island and then to get home to $2.76 in Carthage. 

Just one word to the wise for all you future Muster shooters: After shooting a longrange match, be sure to reset you sights before going on the a regular stage. It helps on the hit/miss ratio (or should that be miss/hit ratio?). Anyways, check your equipment before an engagement.

Will also ask Bro Bob to post pics from his camera to this site.  DID YOU SEE THAT BOB?

Greetings All:

I have just reached home, having traveled via Cheyenne, Wyoming and Butte, Montana (over-nighting in both of those locations).

I am too beat at the moment to post any pictures, but certainly wish to add my sincere congratulations and heartfelt thanks to Col. Pitspitr for a very well-run and exceptionally enjoyable Muster!

I am honoured and humbled to have been awarded the Iron Trooper award, and am also particularly pleased that my performance managed to secure the Divisional trophy for the Division of Canada, Department of the International ....

Pictures to be posted on the morrow, hopefully!

Jack, I enjoyed meeting you at the Muster. I like the Black Watch trousers. I have been told that members of my Clan, Clan Robertson were well represented in the Black Watch.  My Congrats. on winning the Iron Trooper Award. I was the one that asked about a Police Glengary.  I'm glad you made it back to Alberta safe and sound. I come to Calgary to the Rodeo every so often.

Yours Truly, during the shoot and after being presented with the Iron Trooper award .... the way my tunic and trouser legs are blowing may give you some idea of how windy it became by mid-afternoon on Sunday -

Wow - what awesome pics from an outstanding shoot!!!

I love the barracks pic too - that and the pics of the food and nightime lighting just adds that extra piece to this shoot that others do not have.

Who goes to these from the east coast?

Anyone from the NorVA/MD crowd who might like to plan a road trip next year?
