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!

I may be a litlle dense but what do I need to bring for the expansion era match? I figured I would need a SAA and a trapdoor for the main match.

I have loads of different rifles to choose from but not a lot of different uniforms. Can someone give me the gist of the expansion era match?

The EEM is the GAF's version of the wild bunch match. Think GAF In the Wild Bunch, 1900-1916. 1903's 1911's

And remember, it's a side match. You don't have to do it if you choose not to.

For any 03 to be used it must have barrel mounted sights.  The WW2 reciever sights place it out of period.  The 1917 is considered an adaptation of the British P14 of 1914, and is thus allowed.  The 1917 is considered an acceptable subsititution for the EEM sidematch.

What kind of pressure will you have at the top? I would think it would take quite a pump to lift much water to the top of that hill. Maybe just use an irrigation pump. ::)
The water line is complete and pressure has been measured at over 20 pounds. Hopefully the shower will be complete by the end of the week.

I'm trying to figure out my travel plans right now. it is about 12 hours of driving. I figured I would drive most of the 12 in a single day and then find a hotel to sleep. What time do things get started? Should I plan on arriving Thursday to help with setup or Friday for the actual muster?

In addition to my previous question about when I should arrive I need to add an additional question. I have a very flexible shedule. As long as the whole trip does not take more than a week I can do some sightseeing. Is there anything I should not miss in the region? Is Fork Kearney work seeing?

I sure hope to have everything setup by Wednesday evening, but Im sure that folks (Myself included) might appreciat an extra hand putting up tents and Rain Flys on Thursday. That probably won't be an all day job though. Delmonico usually cooks an evening meal on Thursday evening, but that's up to him.
