Seeing how my transfer from the Fleet Marine Force to the Grand Army of the Frontier is now official, I will have to make it to the fall campaign out in Tejas next year!

Is It firm on Lockhart for next year's Muster? I was under the impression that next year would be the Dallas area.  Lockhart ain't that close to Dallas. It's closer to Austin or San Antonio. Lockhart does have purty good BBQ.

TEXAS ....... All Right  ;D ;D
I'm interested in where and when this will occur so I can get it on my calendar.  I sure hope it's not on a date in October that I always have an annual Boy Scout function.  I really want to attend a Grand Muster.  Once the particulars are known I'll start working on some folks to attend.  

The Boy Scout Venture Crew 1872 that I work with does the US 4th cavalry dismounted and has a battery of 4 Mountain Howitzers, maybe we could work in some artillery.

Yeeeeeee Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw !!!!!!!

Oh, I forgot they have recently added a gatling gun but it is still being worked on and I have not seen it in person yet.

November would be GREAT!!  Make sure it's not the first weekend in November because that will be the date of the SASS Southwest Regional at the Bar-3 in English Texas.  We certainly don't want to conflict with that.

Let's see if I can figure out how to post some photos.  If this works these are 3 photos from our artillery salute on Memorial Day.  We only used 3 of the howitzers, I'm commanding the battery.  ;D

Ok it did not work the first time, let's see if I need to post each photo seperate.

The first photo was preparing to fire.  This photo is firing from left to right one piece at a time in sequence.

Well, it looks like we got plenty of fire support for the main assault portion.

I think there's already going to be a cannon (bronze Napoleon?) there.

To all in the GAF,

The 2010 Grand Muster will be held November 12, 13, & 14, 2010 at the Plum Creek Carriage and Shooting Society range located

in Lockhart, Texas which is East of Austin.  Capt. Delta Raider and his lovely Wife Kitchen Kate who are the owners of the range

are planning for the Grand Muster, and some of the best meals around.

So come and join them, and all the others to help make it the best Grand Muster of all.

You'll have to excuse my ignorance of Texas geography. I was under the impression that it was south of Dallas.(Which it is, but considerably farther south than I thought)

Pitspitr,

Lockhart is about 3 1/2 hrs South of Dallas, thats just down the road around here.  About 15 1/2 hours from your house.

GREAT that makes it the weekend after the Southwest Regional !!!!!  It will go on my calendar and I will start spreading the news.  I had the pleasure of shooting at Plum Creek last year when they hosted our Texas State Rifle Association Cowboy Action State Shoot.  It's a Great facility.  Everyone should enjoy it.

Yep everthing is BIG in TEXAS. and as you can see in the post from Texas Sarge we tend to talk of travel in driving time instead of miles. ;D

Yep we do too but I was thinking more like 1 1/2 hours instead of 3 1/2 hours  :-[

Anyway I got out the old google map when I got home from as soon as I got home from the muster and am planning now.

Anybody from Kansas wanna car pool?

Yep, used to drive a couple of hours to shop in San Antonio or 45 min. to McDonalds in Eagle Pass. Welcome to Carrizo Springs, TX, the home of the worst, John King Fisher and the best, Ranger Capt. Allee. The only place in US where you can shoot gators in the mesquite and prickly pear and catch the ugliest gar in existance....Dimmit County and the Nueces  River. Now, that calls for a REAL......YEEEEHHAAAWWW! Remember, it may be hot, but it's a DRY heat.

I'm marking my calendar now.  Ain't no way I'm missin next year!  I got a hankerin' to do somethin "different".  Those of you that seen old posts may have an idee...

Col. Pitspiter, Sir, You're welcome for an overnight stay, though we are a mite far from I-35.  I will probably head out of here that Thurs night or Friday morning.  With coordination, maybe rendezvous and caravan from OKC.

WCJ,
Well, it'll be almost a "straight shot" for you - well you can stay on I-35 all the way to Austin, anyway.  I have to take 75 to Tulsa, then I44 to OKC, then south on 35.

Went to Ft. Hood from OKC once - seemed like it took forever.
