Thanks All! ridjrunr thanks, I will have to get back with ya. Bison Horn I'm about 15min from Lampasas, sounds like the SWRR in Lampasass next Spring is on. So what is SWRR? / Is there a list of things out there I need to start working on? Cloths, Hat and so on? I have a canvas pole tent I used in Alaska, but no poles. Where do you get your supplies? and do most of you try and dress to the period? or is it Blue Jeans, shirt and hat? also, for Lampasas in the spring, I bet I could get quite a few Soldiers to jump on that one.

Well gentlemen, we have been given the OK to use the grounds the first weekend of December! All are invited. I am thinking that we keep it kinda informal but still pre-1840. If you know some folks that want to come and see what rendezvousing is about, invite them. I am going to invite the folks from our FCF ministry to come out too. We can have an archery shoot, black powder, hawk and knife. Or we can just sit around and relax before the Christmas season starts driving us all bonkers!

I will try to get some type of flyer together with directions and whatnot in the next few days.

Sound off it ya can make it...

Count me in possible +1. Might be a good road trip if that's the weekend before Christmas at Ft Parker. BH

I just looked it up, and it is the weekend before Ft Parker! I am hoping that I can make it out to Ft Parker for the weekend this year.

Yes, that is the weekend before Christmas at the Fort.

Count me in for sure Bull.  I will also bring a couple of potential new TMA members with me if that's OK.   ;)

If you need steel targets, archery 3-D targets, cook and bottle washer, or anything at all, my resources are at your disposal.

Heck yeah! Bring them on! I'm hoping my FCF brothers will want to join up as well.

I might just tap into those resources too! Thanks brother!

ok guys I have a question for you Tejas Brothers.

Its supposed to be REALLY cold this coming weekend...do we wanna postpone this little shindig for a week and see how the weather works out?

My weather app shows "Feel Like" lows in the single digits for Saturday evening. and highs in the 20's. Now I know you folks from way up North are probably accustomed to such temperatures, but I generally try and stay indoors.

But if you guys wanna do it, we can.
