I want to attend, but will have to see how things shake out. In November I am scheduled to work days. So to attend the match, I will have to take 2 weeks vacation. The vacation isn't the issue, I have 300 hours available. Basically I have to get one of my counterparts to swap shifts for 2 weeks. so I can take the vacation.  My supervisor isn't the most responsive, I can apply for the vacation now, but it won't be until September or October until it is approved.

I have been planning to to attend since the last Grand Muster - and drive out so I could transport the necessary firearms (and do some essential sightseeing on the way).  Flying is too much hassle anymore, with or without firearms.

However, it looks like I'll FINALLY be retiring about 6 weeks later and need to keep what little leave time I have so I can sell it back.  But if that changes I'll let you know.

Howdy Pards,

We are putting together the match info and are thinking about having a side match using Cap & Ball Revolvers.  Would you like a 3 - Stage Side Match using the C&B where you load two pistols and cap the second one on the clock or include the C&B Class in the Long Range Pistol competition.  Your input is appreciated.

My capping sux and is very slow but It still sounds like fun.  Just not the capping on the clock part.  How about jsut starting with both loaded and cappede?  Could throw in a shot or two with a muzzle loading rifle with it.  Oh and how about a kife throw or jab.  And.............

Howdy Bow View,

Are you planning on coming?  We'd love to have you.

The side match is still up for suggestions.  We'll take yours under advisement.  Thanks.

From the Grand Army of the Frontier Muster Guide:

"GAF PISTOL GUIDELINES:"...
..."Cap-and-ball revolver shooters may use more than one pre-loaded but uncapped revolver or cylinder for reloads during the stage, but these revolvers or cylinders must be capped on the clock."

That is the rules for the Main Match, correct?  Can't we do what we want in a Side Match?

You could use that argument.

I don't have the final say. I'd address the question to the General and Col. Drydock.

Side matchs, other than the EEM, are at the match directors discretion.  And local conditions/regulations must always be accomdated where possible.

I just tought that if your doing a Cap-n-Ball only match, having two all ready to go wouuld expidite things a bit.  It would be better for any green solders unfaliliar with all the intricacies of the cap-n-ball revolver (me) if the loading, including the capping could be done before the pressure of the "clock" starts.

Capt. Mack:

Thank you for the nudge! 

My application has been filled out and I will endeavor to get it posted, with payment, tomorrow.

Right then, Lads!  If I can make it from Canada, then I hereby challenge all fellow GAF members to get there also!

(According to the Geobytes website, the "direct line" - i.e. "as the crow flies" - distance between Medicine Hat and Lockhart is 1549 miles!  I'll work on trying to find out highway miles ....)

Welllll........
I had figured that the football season would be over by then and that even though it's the opening weekend of deer season I would burn a bunch of comp hours and just go. Then after watching the season opener the other night the boys could be playing in in Memorial Stadium in November and I won't miss the chance to keep stats in the big stadium. I'm just going to have to see how the fall plays out.

Is there a maximum number of particitpants? I may have to be a last minuter  :-\

T-MINUS 63 DAYS UNTIL THE GRAND MUSTER

Hello to all from Texas Sarge:

Lets all try to use this top post for all Grand Muster information.

Rattlesnake Jack glad to hear from you and looking forward to seeing you in November.
Pitspitr we can have as many shooters as we want, and we want a lot!  We are trying to put together the numbers for the awards so I can have enough medals for all the winners, as well as trying to get the numbers for the meals.  Kitchen Kate is going to cook up a Texas Storm.  Don't forget meals start at breakfast on Nov the 12th thru lunch on Nov 14th, and I hear from
Kitchen Kate that on Saturday night for the Grand Ball meal there will be a smoked turkey meal with all the trimings.  After all it is November.

I have finished writing the main match stages and the round count is: Rifle-93+ Revolver-87+  the plus in the count is for the
mandatory knock downs, so bring some extra ammo for both weapons.
Capt Mack is just about finished with the EEM and Long Range so a round count will be coming soon for that as well.
Hope everyone will get there Applications in soon, it will be big help for puting together a great Grand Muster in Texas.
