Sir ! 

I am honored to be entrusted with such a responsability.  I shall endeavor to live up to the trust you have placed in me.  Back in November I was inducted into the 5th Cavalry as  company sergeant, Company A at Ft. McDowell, Arizona Territory, now I find myself breveted Colonel.  I look forward to the challenge.

Alternatively, this is what I get for volunteering...

We'll try to get some things going here in the department of the Platte.  I am located in Craig, Colorado, in the NW corner of the state and it seems that the troops of the Department are spread far and wide.  The first order of business, as I see it, will be to establish better communications within the Department.  As we find out who and where we are, we will develop some activities within the Department.  Troops of the Department please contact me - through this board, via pm, or e-mail:  akbullen2001@yahoo.com.

Perhaps as a beginning of activities we can do a side match or two at some of our local clubs shooting matches.  My club is the Northwest Colorado Rangers in Craig.  We are a SASS afiliated club and we shoot on the 4th Saturday, April through September.  We usually have about 20 to 30 shooters at our monthly matches.  Over Memorial Day week-end we host our annual "Where the Old West Stayed Young" match with about 100 participants.  I would like to take this opportunity to invite any member of the Department of the Platte (or any other department) to join the rangers at one of our matches.  I am thinking that at the August or September match we should be able to at least put on a GAF side match following the guidelines our commander has promulgated on these pages.  The NW Colo Rangers have a web page at:

           www.nwcorangers.com

and I would invite all GAF members to check us out.

One of the marks of a good leader is willingness to listen to the troops.  Let me know what you think.  What do we need to do to get our troops more actively involved in  the activities of the Department of The Platte.

I remain your humble servant,
Sagebrush Burns #341
