Many of us in the Department are in Winter Quarters, but this will be ending in the not too distant future. With the spring thaw will come the need for the Department to be ready for action. Among other things it is my intention to get both the GAF and this Department more exposure at as many SASS/NCOWS?GAF matches as possible. As a starting point I need to know how many of my officers are active and available.

Well, I'm not an officer.  In fact I don't have any rank or position at this point.

I can shoot a cannon, just ask Scout  ;D :o :o ;D

Maybe we can do something at the New England Regional?

Lou Graham has the right idea. Exposure at the New England Regional is an example of exactly what I want us the work towards. Other possible ideas to consider:

1) GAF posses at ANY match

2) Posting the colors at a match or other public event.

3) Hosting GAF recruiting office at a match.

4) Speaking/demonstrating at schools, historical societies, youth groups, etc.

Bvt Col Bull Schmidt-

You and the members of your Department have got the right idea and I fully encourage execution of all and similar ideas. 

I don't expect that this be done at every CAS match, local historical site, or reenactment, but there is much the GAF can do to introduce us to fellow enthusiasts. 

Even if you can't field a full posse at a match, you might be able to get all GAF members together on a single posse periodically, with all showing up in uniform (authentic or Hollywood). 

You could also host a GAF social at a Regional.  Perhaps you could give out an award (like the medals we award at the Musters) to the top shooter in uniform, or the best uniform, even if that person is a non-GAF member.  Do it at the awards cememony on behalf of the GAF.  This would probably attract new members, and give incentive to current members to wear their uniforms while shooting.

Keep up the good work.
