UPCOMING EVENTS

Meeting: April 24th, 7:00 p.m. at Ft Concho Living History Stables classroom. 

Tom Ashmore will give a presentation on Fredericksburg’s Fort Martin Scott.  Fort Martin Scott is the oldest frontier fort in Texas.  It has a rich history as the stepping off point for the Upper Immigrant Trail.  It was built by the German immigrants in the area and Comanche were often seen at the fort to trade.  Also, stand by for a surprise announcement during the presentation.

 

April 26th (Saturday):  Day visit to scout upper portions of the south half of the preserve mesa tops and GPS features that are found.  Update: facilities are available that weekend, but anyone who wishes to go on Fri, 25 and Sat 26 needs to contact Tom Ashmore.  You can also camp with trailer. 

May 3rd: Fort Chadbourne Living History event.  This year we will be doing the same activities at Ft Chadbourne as we did at Ft McKavett - Dig in the dirt, bow and arrow and spear/atlatle throwing for the kids.  We need volunteers to pull this off well.
