Col. Pitsptr,  As I recall, I have as yet to miss a Grand Muster. As RCJ said, 2 in KS, 2 in IA and 2 in NE.  Anyone up for Staff Officer? Haven't done much revolver shooting except at Raton in June and durned little there. Mostly shot my 66 in 44-40 out to 600 yds. It even impressed brother Bob. But then, he didn't do too bad either once he got the hang of it.

How is the construction on the barracks coming?  Might have to bring a tent along as long as we don't have to reckon with any "critters". Too many run-ins with slithery and stinging things while living in Dimmit Cty.

Greetings to All

As you are aware, Texas Sarge has his hands full.

 There was a question about camping.  Period camping is encouraged and is close to the Barracks and restrooms with hot and cold running water.

In the event of bad weather or heavy snowfall we can move to the Pavilion, which has restrooms and a shower.

The stages will be challenging but will be more fun than watching a monkey eating ice.

Please direct questions to either Capt. Mac or myself (Scooter). Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Are there bed frames in the Barracks, or should we plan on bringing a cot?

Will the barracks be ready?  I was told they wouldn't be ready by the muster?

RCJ

You might to bring a cot as a backup.  The Barracks should be ready however a further inspection will be made this weekend at our monthly shoot.  I will report at that time. 

Maybe Capt Mac can post a picture of the Barracks.  Isn't it great when a plan comes together.

Your obedient sevant

T minus 45 Days!

I have received River City John's registration.

I'll snap some pics of the Barracks at our match next weekend and give y'all a progress report.

RCJ, would you please be in charge of prizes like last year?  You did a phenomenal job and we'd like you to continue.

I would be glad to help.


I'll print out a generic 'Thank You' for inclusion with each prize.
I figure the less you have to e-mail, or mail, back and forth the better for you. (Unless you want to forward the information to me as to donors and their prizes as you receive them.) As long as there is a master list being kept by someone on site as the early donations arrive, adding on those that people bring with them won't be that difficult. I'll print enough generic 'Thank You' notices to cover what I feel will be enough for the job, and bring 'em along. I will just provide a pre-stamped envelop and rely on each recipient to address their own.  We can update the list as the troops arrive.
And I'll act as the Awards Master, too, unless you have someone in your unit who wants the honor.

Sound like it will work?


By the way, do we have a round count yet? Or have I overlooked it?

RCJ


"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."


This answers my question, Texas Sarge, I reread the earlier posts.

 :'( :'( :'( Unless something unforseen happens between now and then, I'm not going to be able to make it. :'( :'( :'( :'( I wouldn't be able to leave here untill about midnight the night/morning befor the muster starts and would have to be home the morning after it gets over. I just can't function on one nights sleep in 4 days. Sometimes I wish I was a shark so I didn't need to sleep. :-\

   Pitspitr
   
   Sorry to hear you may have to decline your attendance to the 2010 Muster.  Rest assured you will be there in spirit.

   We have been working since last year's Muster and it appears everything is coming together.

   There will be something for everyone,  ie
          Period camping
          The Barracks

   In addition to camping and the Barracks, there will be vendors, artillery demonstration and/or training and delicous cuisine from our own Kitchen Kate. 

   Plans
for a military band (La Banda) are on hold because of increased Homeland Security patrols along the border.  Seriously, we have enjoyed working on this project and hope everyone enjoys themselves.

Unfortunately, won't be any period camping for me, if I can convince the wife to bring the baby camping at all, we only have access to some modern stuff....maybe after I get my uniforms squared away, then a tent will be in the plans.

Scooter,  Never mind the status report. Just found out the registration form didn't get sent.  Will have it in the mail this week. I hate it when both my wife and I forget to write notes to remind each other that we need to remind each other about something. This isn't supposed to happen until you get ..... aw crap, now I forgot what I was going to say.  At least I remember how to get to Lockhart, ie I-35 south to San Marcos, then TX 80 east to TX 142 then on to Lockhart. Sure glad I kept that Texas road map when we moved to MO.

Oh, no....that means my gray and white nylon tent will be lonely! But oh, well....with a 15 month old sleeping inside, they probably wouls make me set up somewhere on the back 40 anyway.....just so everyone else can sleep!
