Ft. McCord Militia (Pennsylvania)
Located in St. Thomas, PA, the Ft. McCord Militia has a very active schedule with meat shoots, a two-day rendezvous including a woodswalk, and a chicken shoot. Well worth the drive!
The general membership of Marriottsville Muzzle Loaders routinely meets immediately following the monthly shoot, which is normally about 1:00 p.m. in the Barnes Range House. These meetings are to conduct club business, raise and address issues and topics of interest to the membership, and to induct, train, and educate new club members.
