I regret to report that I will not  be abloe to make the journey from the Dept. of the Platte, Southern division, to the Grand Muster.  The horses are still tired form the trip in July and so is the driver.  I hopoe to get at least one other person from this Department interested in going to the grand Muster with me next year.  Will be thinking of you all.  Give 'em Heck for Bow View!

I regret to advise that it now turns out I am also unable to attend ....   :(

My two year old grandson was taken from Medicine Hat to the Children's Hospital in Calgary yesterday, and last evening was diagnosed with leukemia.  They will be starting him on chemotherapy on Monday.  My wife and I are in Calgary now and for the next several days at least.  Needless to say, I will have other priorities for the foreseeable future.

Please help with your prayers and good wishes.

Grant,  So very sorry to hear of this situation with your GRANDson.  I shall also be praying for him. My God is still in the healing business today even as He was back during Bible times and has not stop being since. I shall issue an alert to the GAF constituency to be in prayer for all of the family.

Grant,
As has been said I am very sorry to hear this. Your family has been in my prayers since I saw your message earlier and will continue to be until I hear of his healling.

Also as has been said the muster won't be the same without you and we'll miss you. Jacob found another piece of your .303 brass yesterday. I guess I'll just have to wait a while longer to return it.

Thanks to all for your prayers and encouragement!

Ebin had a "central line" surgically implanted below his collarbone yesterday, from which all blood samples can be taken and through which medications can be administered.  Apparently it will remain in place for as long as 2 1/2 years, throughout his treatment regimen.  Hopefully he can now get over his fear of nurses .... until now whenever one showed up it was most likely to stick a needle into him for one reason or another!

They are starting his first round of chemotherapy today .... The first of four 37-day treatment blocks.  We have been told that an improvement could be apparent as early as the end of this first block, although they would continue with the whole series in any event.  I understand that the recovery rate with the particular type he has is 85-90%.

Don't know how I managed the honor, but I seem to be Ebin's favorite grandparent - no matter who he may be with, when I show up, he has to come to "Papa"  .......   Kinda chokes me up, y,know .....

Hope our prayers increase his odds for a full & speedy recovery.  I'm sure having his Papa nearby helps at least as much as anything those mean old nurses have to offer.

I'm sorrry to here you will not be attending the Grand Muster, but I am most sorry to here of your young grandson's illness.  My thoughts are with him and his family.

Trap
Can you please provide us some idea of times for side match events on Friday and main match events on Saturday and Sunday?  Just want to make sure I know when I have to get there for which event.  Also, last year yall posted a map to the event location.  Can you do that again this year?

Also, is the Infantry Class the only class that shoots rifle only and the Staff Officer class shoots pistol only?
All others shoot rifle and a pistol, including Militia?
