Soooo . . .
how many targets? More than 50?

You all shoot much better than I, so now I'm anxious whether I'll be able to carry enough ammunition. Will there be a pack mule available for use?

Pitspitr Sir,
I am going to try to make it out for a day at least, and do some photo shootin. Which day would be the better day to catch good action, including the artillery?

I'm assuming about thirty to forty total (rifle and pistol) targets per stage.  I realized a while ago that a lot of the ammunition carrying systems from our era only allowed for fifty rounds on your body.  I think we'll have a system for ammunition resupply during a stage, with probably a small time penalty if you need to use it.  We've been putting a lot of thought into this, but the skirmish format is still an evolving concept.

I'm not really sure, Dm, but last year most of the photo's seem to be from Friday and Saturday. Friday being the side matches.

I seem to remember some discusion last year about an alternative to must hit targets, with something like if it was engaged and didn't go down after like the 4th or 5th shot then the shooter could bayonet a representative of said enemy before being overrun and continue on to the next target so as to not use up an excess amount of ammo.

It just so happens I'm in the process of making bayonet dummies right now!  I believe what we came up with is three hits and it's dead.  That shouldn't be much of a problem if we set the targets correctly.  They're built to be adjustable as to how much force it takes to knock them down.

Gentlemen, could someone give an update on road and water conditions for those of us travelling from the east? I've been monitoring conditions on this end but reports seem to stop at the river. Will be haeding out on Thur. the 28th just not sure which route would be best. I've crossed the " wide missouri" at Blair the last two years, but  not sure I can get there from here this year. Any updates would be apprieciated. Look forward to seeing everyone at Camp Pitspitr and Fort Scotsman. Al

Glad to hear you're coming, Al!  I'll check with some friends of mine in Omaha when we're closer to the Muster and let you know.  It should be a lot of fun again!

Al You're at Tama, right? I know it sounds crazy to go so far south, but it'd be quicker to take I-80 west to Grand Island then take Highway 2 to Ansley then 183 north. I wouldn't have believed it myself until I had to go that way. If I-80 gets closed the nation is in serious hurt.

Looks like a good place to me.

In fact if anyone has ANYTHING they are looking to sell or trade bring it along you might find a buyer. I'm planning on bringing a couple of Krag bayonets.

Also if anybody just has "show and tell" items bring them. They'll be good campfire story fodder. (You might want to leave the ducks at home though. ;)  ;D )

Shall I wear my nightcap too? I usually reserve both for cold weather.

Yep, wear it.

Only if someone else cleans it! I don't like duck well enough to pick the darned things  :P Sauerkraut is best with dumplings!!!

I'll pick the ducks and wouldn't make the pork or the duck with out the tater dumplings.  Here's a 20" oven full of them and pork:

I still haven't sent it my registration yet, but planning to....Just trying to get all the logistics thought out. Wife might consider camping, but not if it's TOO hot(baby more used to A/C). Are there perhaps any creeks or other places to cool off? If the camping isn't happening, what about the nearby motels? I see online one in Taylor, but no website, and the hunting lodge, which is out of my price range.

Also, Thanks Pitspitr for the Appleseed brochure you included with the registration form. I never would have guessed they would have shoots within 30 minutes of me! I took over the baby for a day, and took my wife to learn, was her first experience with shooting. Unfortunately, I didn't have a suitable rifle, and while the loaner they had did have an adjustable stock, she told me after that she was having a lot of problems "finding" the view in the scope. I'll have to work on a .22 that fits her for next time. Who knows, maybe next It will be a cowboy or even military rifle!

I'm going to add this to this thread, 

As an added thought, if someone or a couple of you have any of those drinking water jugs and have room toss them in.  I'll have mine, and will keep it full of iced tea like last year, if we had an extra one we could put ice and water in it and put it down at the fort and it could be hauled along when you go down to the EE match.  A second extra one could be kept in camp with just water and ice.

Also if anyone has a real large extra ice chest they could bring along I could get and we could keep more ice around when I run into town for an ice run.  I have a couple extra, but I tend to not have room for extra stuff and mine are not real big.
