The National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association in Friendship,

the muzzle loading sports and our Early American heritage, Sept. 12-20.

from learning how to shoot muzzle loading firearms under the tutelage
of trained instructors, to exciting hands-on craft activities
designed especially for them! The event grounds are located in southeastern
Indiana about 40 miles from Cincinnati. Public attendance is welcome
Gate hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is charged for visitors 16
