Muster ’17 will execute on Saturday, May 20, 2017 at Sherwood Forest (Location will be reserved for arrivals on Friday and departures on Sunday).
1000hrs Muster Brief conducted at The Keep (castle)
Directly following the brief, we will group attendees into teams and conduct a orienteering course on the Sherwood Forest grounds. This course will include round-robin stations, at which classes on field craft will be conducted. Field craft includes subjects such as basic first aid, map reading and the like.
After the training, we will team up and have a water gun battle on the Sherwood Forest grounds. That means bring your best gun and prepare to get a little payback on the brigade staff and command! There will be a 'license fee' for each water gun (NO Water baloons!) for $5 each - funds going back to 3BDE to pay fro this and future events.
1900hrs Field Mess cartered at The Keep
The mess will be a Combat/Field mess and the uniform will be the Class-C uniform (BDU or flight suit). Our meal will be catered and consist of ‘field chow’ and includes a return of the Grog!
The purpose of the 3rd Brigade Combat Dining-In is to bring together members of the Dogs of War in an atmosphere of camaraderie, good fellowship, and social rapport. It serves to enhance the esprit de corps, lightens the load of demanding day-to-day work, gives the commander an opportunity to meet socially with their subordinates and enables military members of all ranks to create bonds of friendship and better working relations through an atmosphere of good fellowship.
Due to the nature of the Field Mess Class-C uniform is encouraged heartily.
This event is currently under review to qualify for the SFMC Widlerness Challenge!
