2010 Western Gathering.

Post by Doc Mark » Fri Aug 06, 2010 10:12 am

Greetings, All,

Our 2010 Western Gathering will once again be held at Fort BuenaVentura, Utah, this year! It's a great place to hold our Gathering, with plenty of room for all, water, a lake, restrooms, a place to shoot, and a great-looking period Fort, for ambience!! The dates will be October 13-17. Please make your plans to be there, Friends, as we always have a great time at our Western Gathering!! This will be out FIFTH such event, and I simply cannot understand where the time has gone since our very first one, just a short while back!! I am hoping for yet another fine turn-out of our Western members, and invited guests, for this Gathering, as this is the one event that is specifically setup for our Western membership. Of course, our Eastern Brothers and Sisters are very welcome to join us, too! For those of you Patriot members who are planning to invite guests, please make sure that they understand that they must try their very best to comply with our ALRA guidelines for dress and deportment, as they are a direct reflection on our organization. We love to have our invited guests with us, and quite a few current ALRA members started out in just that manner. But, it is up to all of us to make sure that any and all guests do not show up in civilian clothes, or in clothes that are inappropriate to our chosen time period of 1750-1815. Thanks, very much, for all your help and efforts in this, Friends!! I look forward to seeing your smiling faces, once again, at our upcoming Western Gathering! If you can plan to do so, please come for the entire event, as we will be spreading out our seminars, shooting events, and other such things, over the entire period. Take care, and God Bless!

Every Good Wish,
Doc Mark Rutledge

Greetings, Friends,

Tomorrow, I'm off to the Western Gathering! I plan to arrive on Tuesday morning, around 10AM, after having spent the night with some friends up that way. For all those that are planning to be there this year, please have a safe trip to the Fort!! For those that have never had the chance to join us at one of our Western Gatherings, please put this event on your calendar for next year! IMHO, it's the absolute best ALRA event of it's type, in the history of the ALRA!! We have great shooting contests, outstanding and educational seminars, and lots of fun, frivolity, and friendship!! This event is for our Western members, but all ALRA Patriot members, and their families and invited guests, are welcome to join us!! I know it's a very long trip for many of you, as it is for me. But, I guarantee that you will have a fine time, and that your efforts will be more than worth it!! This is the best attended of any ALRA event that I've ever enjoyed, so come on down and join us at Fort BuenaVentura, Utah, next year!! See you at the Fort!! Take care, and God Bless!

Every Good Wish,
Doc Mark
