GAF Muster 2006
« on: November 01, 2005, 12:28:56 PM »
OK,

All you folks who had a great time this past weekend, or wanted to partake in the fun but could not for what ever reason, the 2006 Muster will be held on the 5th weekend of September in Ackley, Iowa. 

The theme will be the Civil Ware and the match name is "Rebellion."  I have ordered a Spencer to be staged.  I wanted one anyway, and this is just an excuse to buy one.  I am also working on getting an 1861 Springfield with a bayonet for a staged rifle.  There is also a side match that I have mentally worked out called "The Spirit of the Bayonet." 

US Scout and I were also talking through one big bull dog of a side match called Fredricksburg.  Think clearing a town....Also, the night fire seemed to be a big hit.  I would like to do that again.  Accept I will have a medal for that one next year.

I would also like to do a Plainsman match next year instead of a Wild Bunch Match next year on Side Match Day...

Major Matt is already thinking and planning for next year. :D
Just goes to prove that an event like this isn't done in a week ..
and the long hard work and effort is more than apparent when you have attended a GAF Muster.

 I have never had such a good time at a shoot yet, as I have at this one.
 I can't wait until next year.

I posted over on the NCOWS... but I will say it again here....~~
Thank you Matt...You out did yourself !
 Thank you Del and Gopher Grease..and thanks to the shooters and  all the wonderful people who helped make this what it was.
What an awesome, easy going, friendly group of people. Just like being with family.

Wow.. it was just the best!

Looks like Del & Matt will be joining us again with their Dutch Oven Magic next year.

I've already committed - that Maj Matt can be one smooth talker!

I like the idea of holding the Muster at a new location.  It may provide some incentive to some to attend by placing it closer to them, and hopefully will drag along those who have already a Muster. 

I'd love to see the entire GAF attend!

Lars,

It may be a long drive for you, but I'll probably still have to fly in, and that makes it a full day adventure for me.  Getting to KC was pretty easy, but looking at outgoing flights from here, it looks like it'll be at least one connecting flight for me - which I hate to do while carrying firearms.

Lets not forget about Rattlesnake Jack from Medicine Hat, Alberta or Hardtack Henry from Great Falls, Montana.  Those are the two long riders.

Well, after leaving Brighton, just north of Denver, at 7:30 a.m. yesterday (where we had spent the night as the guests of Hardtack's very gracious Aunt and Uncle), I departed from Hardtack's place about 8:00 p.m. last night and finally made it home about 11:30 - no delay at all at the border, thankfully!  Managed to get to bed by about 2:00 a.m. this morning and am now sitting here, still somewhat bleary-eyed, trying to catch up on the news ...

Had a grand time at Muster, renewing the acquaintance of friends met last year and also meeting new friends!   

The biggest "downside" to the whole affair was waking at about dawn on Monday morning to the sound of rain spattering down on the tent canvas, followed by two delightful hours of striking camp and packing up the vehicle in a steady downpour!   :-[  >:(  :P

I was sitting in the airport at KC watching it pour down and hoping that you boys had managed to load up before it hit. 

Having set up and struck camp in heavy rains on many occasions (and sometimes when it was pitch dark besides), I can both appreciate and sympathize with your plight - on the other hand, I can grin because I didn't have to do it myself this trip!

That said, I'm glad to hear you fellars made it home in one piece and without any problems.

Speaking of problems, when we landed (at home) the pilot requested I come forward to the cockpit.  His manifest said that I was carrying (concealed) and he was concerned because I had not declared myself to the crew.  Seems the ticketing agent made a note next to my name that I was carrying firearms instead of transporting firearms.

Happy now!  ;D :D ;)

The reviews are in.  The event was a success.  Now I am in the process of wrapping up, getting thank you letters to Sponsors and then having Lone Gunman update the website.....And then start building the match for next year with an all new round of solicitation requests for sponsors.  Fun Fun Fun.


Not to mention back in the gym and on the diet.  Dude, I packed on some lard....

Delmonico,

Would the proper verb to go with "lard" be "transferred"?

LOL!

Scout, one of few pieces of sound advice that my mother ever gave me was that pictures don't lie.  Now, I was pleased to get on the scale today and get a good honest survey of the damage.  It's not too bad.  Correctable by Mid-December, I am thinking.

Now that the lard has been "transfered,"  I will actively work at "discharging" it ;)

Will the 2006 also be a two gun shoot?
