The gallery is now fixed.
Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving and wish everyone a merry Christmas.
During the meeting yesterday it was decided to spend a day at Camp Wisdom for our winter activity. This will be on 12/28 from around 9am till 9pm. Plans are to work on the shop and get ready for the new year.
We need to continue to recruit new members for potential growth and look to do activities with other crews.
If anyone has any news, event write ups they would like to post here please send them to the crew list or me directly and we will get them posted. If someone would like to help edit the website please speak up and we will get you access.
Next spring I have requests right now for 2 metal working merit badges which dates will be worked out not long after the new year, trying to put them on meeting weekends.
As for officers for next year right now we have.
President: Clair or Jaylee
Would like to see a name next to all of these positions, in January we will cast votes where needed and have discussions regarding this.
If you are interested in a position please contact Reggie or email the yahoo group list.
Hope to see everyone for the winter activity and if you do not make it have a happy new years.
Aug. 11 – there will be a crew meeting at the shop, at the last meeting we talked about possibly cooking and blacksmithing that day, but its up to yall to decide whether we should cook again. If you want to do that, please email and let me know and also tell me what food/supplies you’re willing to bring with you, if any. Lesley and I thought maybe we could do blacksmithing at 10am that day and have the meeting at 11ish and eat after that.
Sept. 8 – there will be a pool party/meeting at Lesley’s house from 11am-1:30ish. If everyone could bring something with them that would be great, the meat will already be supplied though. We will need people to bring:
Please put your name next to what you’re bringing and email the group back.
That’s all for now- I will keep y’all posted. Thanks!

Ervin & Gail hit the road around 4:00 Friday morning so we could miss the Ft Worth traffic, and pulled into Graham around 8:30. Found a good spot & started setting up. Joseph & Sara got there around 12:00. We all ate a good meal at the dinner across the street & went back to finished setting up wagon in the rain, Lynn Jackson came in around 3:00. It cleared up a little for the wagon inspection at 4:30pm. They started bringing food shortly after the meeting of all the wagons there was six this year & some pretty tough competitors were there. We all went to the Montana Restaurant and ate a good meal, and also planned out game strategy for Saturday before retiring. It came a flood Friday night. After breakfast Saturday morning we started getting ready for the big day. Jimmie Hollandsworth came in around 12:00 just ta visit & see about maybe getting a cook-off setup for Celina. He ended up staying and helping us cook & serve. He fit right in with our crew & wagon. We started serving at 6:00 right after turning in our judge’s samples. We were one of the first ta sell out. We really got a lot of good comments on our food and wagon & even booked a job for next September on a dude ranch in Graham more details on this later.
The judging was tough & there was quite a few this this year but 1298 is getting better this year we did 3rd in Beans, 3rdin Potatoes, 3rd in Most Congenial wagon, 4th in Desert.
Lynn Did a great job on his Biscuits & all agreed that his was the best, but the judges like sour dough. His gravy was great but they don’t judge gravy (OH we had people from other wagons come for gravy, biscuits & cobbler). What do the Judges know? We had a ball after the results with lots of singing & dancing. Once this was over we loaded up & came home Saturday night.
The weather held after the skies cleared Saturday morning, & we all had a great time.
A very special to Jimmy & Lynn for their help I hope we’ll be seeing more of them.
This was Sat Sept 18 Downtown Garland.
We (Ervin & Gail) showed up Friday around 1:00 found our place & started setting up the wagon, the weather was pretty warm until about three clock & a little cold front blew in. Reggie got there a little later & helped us finish up the camp. we stayed at a nearby hotel and got a good early start sat morning about 5:00. Derrick Parks from Crew 1818 & Reggie got there around 7:00 and we started preparing beef stew for a pretty good crowd. Randy May, his crew & wagon rolled in and began set up. There were a total of 4 wagons. We ran slap dab outa stew & cobbler. Had a lot fun met some good people & all got a new Cowboy hat as prize. We also got show up money didn’t win any categories, but all our food was gone & they kept coming back for more. We will probably do this one again next year.
