    I am starting to believe I need to move. I had to go back quite a ways in time to get any entries for the Southwest; then the only one from Arizona was Zonie (who I have talked to on another forum). I am new to muzzle loading and looking for some input on reenacting in this area. Maybe it is too hot here!

    If you can't find anyone out in the desert to play with I guess we could let you come and burn some powder here in the lone star. :thumbsup:

    Hope you are enjoying the cooler weather up there. We are in the furnace in The Valley.

    All things being relative it feels warm here also.
    I built my own home out of a product called rastra
    the walls are r50 I dont even have a swamp cooler
    so far It's 20 degrees cooler inside than out.
    however I like working in the shop with doors open
    so I have a portable swamp aimed at me

    I have noticed a lot of AZ members, so I signed up for the premium membership, thinking there might be a little local discussion. Guess not.

    Sadly, I dont see much collaboration among us Arizonan's. We talk on here a lot but outside of two I have never had any opportunity to get together off the forum, and I only actually was able to do that with one.

    I am down in the Tucson area and I would like to report that there are TWO muzzle loader clubs in this area. Old Pueblo and Montezuma Muzzleloaders. Both are charter clubs of the NMLRA and contact information can be found in the "Muzzle Blasts" magazine. There are a total of nine ML clubs listed as charter clubs in AZ. Send me a PM if you need more information.

    I do my own thing. I bought a used wall tent, boy Scouts. Was told I can't use it, so I hold my own fevendevous in the white mountains. I set up my tent and have a blast.

    Dean,
    I just found this forum. I've been here quite a while, and never seen it.
    Anyway, I'm living in Payson now, just moved up from the valley.
    There are two clubs that I belong to, both in the valley.
    But, we have our summer shoots near Mormon Lake, second Saturday of the month.
    There is also a great rendezvous in August near Blue Ridge, called El Verano. Great shoot, great people.
    Our club has one near Rye in November.
    Please p.m. Me if you'd like to know more.

    I'm down here in Yuma and there isn't much going on around here except in the winter months when there are some snowbirds hanging around. I mostly have to shoot by myself all year. There is a club here but it is loosely run and not really interested in new people in my experience.

    Thought this forum was under used so i started a thread here also. Our region is famous for independent loners doing their own thing their way! Might explain lack of posts.
    One thing i know for sure, cowboys never rode off into the sunset, blindly walking out of town at dusk is stupid!
    Maybe we can generate some interest here.

    Down here in the Havasu area. Not many powder shooters here local. Planning on heading down to Yuma to check out the Rendezvous Jan 2020. Also there is a Bouse Hills Muzzleloaders event (just north of Quartzite) Feb 13-16 2020 as well.
