Looks like I'll be travelling to the DOM Muster with my usual 'batman', Roger ....

Colonel Pitspitr - I am even thinking of trying to convince him to try shooting, this time.  If I manage to do that, would there be any difficulty on a relatively late registration as a Muster participant?

By the way for those who don't want to camp .... but would also prefer not to be staying 20 or 30 miles away ..... I have reserved a room at the Comstock Premier Lodge, which appears to be only two miles or so (as the crow flies) from the Muster site!  (Mind you, I gather it may be five or six miles by road ....)  


Jerry admits that he forgets to mention this place because it was actually started as a private hunting lodge with very expensive membership.  However, it is now operated as a Bed & Breakfast, and looks pretty upscale!


Mind you, at $110/night it isn't cheap..... but if you have to pay at least $70 or $80 for a decent motel room anyway plus spend time and money driving 50 miles or so each day, I think it is worth it.

I understand it is a "per room" rate - i.e. same price regardless of how many people are sleeping in the room  (.... within reason, of course, and it only includes breakfast for two people, but additional breakfasts are $5.00 each.)  They even have a "Bunk Room" which has four single beds in it - also $110/night.  If four guys were willing to share that one (.... rather reminiscent of the barracks at previous National Musters?.....) the cost per night, with two additional breakfasts, would work out to only $30 per person .....

Thank you Grant for pointing this out.
This is a very nice place and as Grant pointed out it started life as an expensive private hunting club. (about $130,000 to $150,000/year membership) The last I knew they still have elk and buffalo hunts available, but aren't as expensive now.  In it's former life it hosted some rather big name celebrities such as the band Sawyer Brown.

I'm sure most of you have seen the "Quote of the day" thread in which I discuss attending my son's NG graduation in SC. Because of this trip, I'm going to have to cancel the informal Zoot Shooting match. Now to make certain I'm clear on this, I am NOT canceling the main match, I'm just canceling the ZOOT match on Sunday afternoon.

I know there are several of you that are planning on attending who haven't sent in registrations yet. Even if you have to wait to send the official  registration (waiting on a paycheck or whatever) Please let me know that you are indeed coming and what class you are planning on shooting. That way I can get the score cards and certificates printed. Thanks

Update:
Trenching for the waterline started yesterday, so while the shower may not be completely finished, we'll at minimum have a tank to cool off in and have running water at the camp sight.

I made the arraingements to purchase the lodge poles for my teepee. I'll have to smooth them up a little but shouldn't have any problem finishing that project before the muster.

For those of you who have attended the past 2 DoM Musters, you will be happy to know that I made access into another canyon so we'll have a new stage area. This one is a lot closer to the camp site than the canyon we've used the last 2 years. My plans are to eventually put some permanent props in this canyon, but they probably won't happen before next year.

Have we seen an exact round count yet if shooting a mil. spec rifle and revolver?

How about just the mil. spec rifle?

About how many for the Long Range side match?

John et. al.
I've asked Ned Niederlander to address this question, but I'm assuming the same as last year's for the main match and as you know it's a must hit match so the number of rounds is dependent on your skill, but we're suggesting you bring around 100 rounds rifle. I'm guessing about 10 for the long range. I haven't seen the targets or their scoring rings, but most targets the high scoring ring is 10 so 10X10 would be a 100 possible.

Dale will correct me if I'm incorrect.

Oh, and more is always better. ;D We can always find ways for you to burn powder if you don't want to bring leftovers home.  ::)

Gentlemen,
       As Pitsptr indicated, the targets are all must-hit, so it's impossible to give an exact round count.  I believe we shoot three stages in the main match, and there should be between twenty and thirty rifle targets per stage, plus six to ten pistol targets.  The Expansion Era stage should be about the same, so you can plan accordingly.  I always like to have at least fifty percent more rounds than targets, but I'm an ammunition hog.  As far as the long range matches (Main and Expansion Era), both will be ten shots for record with five sighting rounds allowed.  I believe Pitsptr is going to allow sighting in the night before as well. 
       As an aside, the exact number of targets per stage will depend some on the weather.  If it's 105 degrees, we'll use a few less targets as no air moves in the canyons.  (Ask Drydock!) If it's cooler, stages will be a little longer to get more shooting in.

Hope that helps!

Jacketed bullets are fine for the long range portion of the match.  (In fact, I would recommend them for the smaller calibers.)  Also, the long range match has been changed to 300 yards, if I'm not mistaken.

Having gotten another shooting event out of the way this past weekend, I now must turn my attention to preparations for this Muster.

Am I correct in my understanding that there will be no difference in the number of rounds to be fired in the main match stages by Riflemen with single shots as opposed to Marksmen with repeaters?

You are correct, sir.  The single shots just go a little slower, though not that much slower!

RJ in our expirience Riflemen are somewhat slower, though not significantly slower. Most don't wish to shoot less anyway.

Wow, it just occured to me that we have a pretty diverse geographic area represented by our registered attendees. Alberta Canada to Texas and Illinois to Arizona.

I heard from the General the other day and if he can finally shake the chronic bronchitis he's been fighting, he may attend as well.....Now if we could just get someone here from the west coast  ::)

We built eight more kneeling targets today, with more on the way.  Should be a target-rich environment!
