Pvt Isaac receives notable mention-I really am somebody, I really am! :D
Private, have you found the registration form yet?

Where are you posted these days? There is another Recruit out on the East coast that maybe looking for a ride.

Still in NE North Carolina-near where the Wright brothers first flew in 1903!

Col Pitspitr:

Are the 100 -300 yd targets made of iron and scored by a clang or are they paper targets?

I'm going to have to find a revolver suitable for the Muster too.

Respectfully,

Long range targets are AR 500 armor steel,  meant for full power/jacketed loads, and clang they do!  There are no ammunition limitations for the Long Range event.

And as a point of clarification; there are no ammunition limitations for the Precision Pistol either. The only limitations are on the main match targets.

Col. MG
There is a class for the rifle only if you wouldn't have an appropriate pistol; however, this would give you a nice excuse to buy another!  ;)

    A lotta people staying at hotels for this one it seems. Whats amatter with the campsite-is it DANGEROUS or something? Maybe some weird happenin's of sorts? :D



    Shouldn't be a problem for any Soldier or Seaman worth his salt. Especially the Soldier/Seamen! ;)

Chas Isaac,
This will be my first muster.  I'm staying in a hotel...only because my favorite wife, aka Miss Red, aka Mary, will be going with me.    She doesn't mind camping, but she insisted on indoor plumbing.

    I can understand that Troy. Lucky you, that she will even accompany you on such an excursion.



    My wife will camp with me sometimes, but there HAS to be a modern bath house and only if i get a site right next to it! ;)

Gen. Pitspter, with the banquet being held at Fort Hartsuff and many folks wanting time to take a tour, do you think the last stages and awards will run later on Sun. than past musters? Doesn't matter, just trying to schedule time off and give my CO(wife) an estimated ETA. Looking foward to another great event with some of the best people I've ever met. See Ya, Al.

Got me a Colt 1909. revolver for the expansion era match.

I will get a couple of chances to use my 1873 Carbine before the Muster.

Gentlemen,
Please forgive my tardy responses. Our daughter-in-law gave birth to our first grandson a week ago last Monday and he passed away the next morning. As you can imagine things have been kind of chaotic last week and I'm just starting to get things straightened back out.
Al,
It is possible that we might have to run later Sunday than usual. I really expect to be able to get 3 of the 4 main stages (as well as the Long Range and Precision Pistol) done Saturday and finish up the last stage by Noon Sunday.

The last couple of years we had the Saturday Banquet at 7:00 so I'm thinking that we can give ourselves an extra 1/2 hour of travel time and have the banquet at 7:30. This will still give us a couple of hours of daylight to tour the fort afterward. Now if we can finish up the stages early enough that we can get over there earlier and do the tour first, that's what we'll do. If it's looking like we can't start a 3rd stage and still get to the fort my 7:30 we'll save one of the main stages for the next morning and run it at the same time as the stage near Ft. Scotsman.  Even then we'll most likely finish up by noon Sunday.

Ah good news and maybe better news or bad news depending on how you look at it.
The good news is as things now stand I should be in the environs of Sargent on 23 Jun.
The mixed news is she who must be obeyed is not on board for dry camping so I will not be able to park on the farm.
We have a spot reserved in the Victoria Springs Recreation Area.
We hope an Old Army Nurse buddy of Anne's will join us there.  This will allow us to see her and provide some one for Anne to do womanly things with whilst I waste my time doing manly things.

I am getting stoked.  Need to spend more time on the range in preparation.
