Prattville Dragoons SCV Camp 1524 Fall Muster

On Saturday 15 October Camp 1524 held its 2nd Fall Muster in the open pastures of the Pearson estate in Autaugaville.  With the clear skies and breeze and the shade of the trees along the fenceline, it proved to be a very relaxing and fun event. Those who wanted to participate shot clay targets and everyone enjoyed a fabulous bar b que picnic dinner. Commander Waldo, Adjutant Sutherland, Comms Officer Larry Spears and Compatriots Bill Gill, Bill Branch, Harold Grooms, and Bill Myrick all tried their shooting skills shooting clays.  A little rust didn't deter all from enjoying the event and some targets were even hit on occasion.  Adjutant Sutherland claimed it was his first time shooting a  shotgun but after busting a number of clays, many were doubting his story.  Bill Branch brought some older and reproduction guns and shared them with those who desired to shoot them including a double barreled black powder gun. After shooting and BBQ, everyone relaxed and chatted and enjoyed some cold beverages before heading home to watch the college football games.  It was an enjoyable afternoon for all in attendance enjoying the comaraderie and food including smoked pork butt, potato salad, Quartermaster Myrick's world famous baked beans as well as home made desserts.  It was truly a wonderful way to spend a Southern Fall afternoon and we thank everyone for making the arrangements and coordinating the details and participating.
