2013 Department of Missouri Muster
« on: September 14, 2012, 10:57:24 AM »
Hopefully this is early enough that everybody can put in for time off now and get it.

I will be hosting the 2013 Department of Missouri Muster July 12, 13th & 14th, in my pasture. This will be open to anyone in the GAF. If not currently a member I can help you register. (Membership in the GAF is free and easy) You need not be headquartered in the Department of the Missouri. By using Google Earth and going to  41°40'16.24"N Latitude and  99°19'42.54"W Longitude you can see the Dept. Muster site. Registration forms are available on the dispatches page of the Grand Army's Web site. Particpation will be limited to 35 shooters. Everybody wishing to take part in a door prize drawing  should bring something for the pot and we will run the door prize drawing sort of like an old fashioned blanket shoot. Those wishing to attend but not compete may do so without registration fee, but be sure to pay the meal fee.

This muster will be a primative camping event. The planned activities include: a 3 stage GAF steel target main match, a 300 yd paper target long range match and a GAF Expansion Era Match. While 3 stages for the main match doesn't sound like much these two stages will be of the skirmish format and will feature about 20 knock down targets per stage. Round counts will be dependent on the number of times the shooter needs to shoot at each target to get it to fall. 100 rounds at least would be a good plan. This is a match that, as one participant said, truly needs to be experienced to be fully appreciated.


I will have a tent city and have tentage for about 10 individuals if you don't have your own. We should be easily able to get photos without anything modern in them. We should have plenty of time to sit around the campfire and visit.

The muster itself will be low budget. The meals will be cooked by Delmonico and participants will pay him not me. I don't intend to issue medals to the winners, but entry fees will only be around $35.

Shooters will be able to sight in their rifles on Friday evening using a bench. When the actual long range match is held on Saturday it will be shot from the shooters choice of positions from the ground. The idea behind this is that it will be more of a real world type of match.

And from the feedback I've gotten, beef and noodles will be on the menu Friday or Saturday at noon, plus of the weather coperates on my end, the red flannel hash will be on the menu for breakfast one of those days.  Any other ideas from anyone, I'm always open to feedback, although sales at the store and season always is taken into account. ;)

I thought of that one already, it's been a while.  Have to call it tamater steak, the term Swiss was invented in the 1930's, but it's always a good one.

Sonds good to me-maybe I'm a legionare origionally from Switzerland.

Or could be from Germany, except, in spite of my ancestory on my mom's side, I never developed a liking for saurkraut!

Maybe from the German speaking section of Switzerland???

Darn! If I bring the Lebel, it might be lonely, since while I was snoozing, an 1892 French Ordanance Revolver sold on GB for only 167$!!!! I even had it on my watch list, but neglected to check it.......

All Lutefisk has to be eaten down along the canal, I never understood why they soaked perfectly good fish in lye.

Now there is a reason for that, it makes the Niacin (Vitaman B3) in the corn usable by humans, hence preventing Pellagra a disease that was common in years past in the southern United States.  It causes the 4 D's, diarrhea, dermatitis, dementia and death.  Hominy, grits and masa foods such as corn tortillas prevent this terrible disease.  This was discovered by the natives of the Americas long before the white man came here. ;)  Besides, I like hominey, grits and corn tortillas, I don't like lukefisk. :P
