Got the two shadowboxes back from the Framer and was very pleased. Added two snapshots of them to the post in here where I told about them.

(Again, forgive the reflection of myself and the equipment, in real life they are very nice looking. :-[)

I reckon Bow View and I have the logistics of transporting the prize firearms to Ft Hartsuff figured out now.  I'm just waiting for the FFL there to contact me. 
Alas, Calamity JoAnne and I cannot attend this year due to my military committments.  But the prize guns WILL be there.

Received a LARGE box of goodies from Oklahoma Leather/Don Hume products from THE TRUCK today and was highly impressed. Waiting for another shipment of bullets to arrive.

Still think it would be great if all coming would bring something of personal value to add to the pot. This would not only enlarge things but make the banquet much more meaningful.

God Bless, shoot safe and see Y'all at Hartsuff in beauteefull Nebrasky in Autumn.

Capt. Little .....

In addition to the items I mentioned in an earlier private message, I have acquired another which I think would be a desirable acquisition for most Muster attendees - "U.S. Army - A Complete History", published by The Army Historical Foundation.  Just bought it this past weekend to go through for myself and then donate to the prize table.

Quite a tome, I must say - 744 pages and seems to weigh about ten pounds or so!  Chock full of excellent illustrations, it starts off in 1775 (of course) and runs through to 31 December 2004 .......

Well Dang, People!
It sounds like we're going to need half a day just for giving out the awards! ;) ;D ;D
