After months of planning, we’re excited to finally release details on our inaugural ITS Tactical Muster and skill-set development excursion.
The Muster integrates all the common skill-sets we advocate here on ITS into one long weekend packed full of instruction on Lock Picking, Knot Tying, Rappelling, Fire & Shelter Building, Camp Gadgets & Stoves, Medical (including TCCC principles), Navigation and Geocaching. All this while spending the evenings enjoying great camradarie and sleeping under the stars.
Bringing our community together, the Muster will be your chance to spend a few days with the crew from ITS Tactical, get hands-on and learn together. The Muster attendance will be limited to 50 people and available to our Life Members, Plank Owners and Crew Leaders only.
While the Muster won’t be a physically demanding event, you’ll be hiking and climbing so your level of fitness should allow for this. You’re going to get dirty, you’re going to be tired, but you’ll leave with more knowledge than you came with, great memories and friendships forged.
Inaugural ITS Tactical Muster
The Muster will be taking place from Thursday, October 25th to Sunday, October 28th. We’re requiring everyone to arrive no earlier than 3 p.m. on October 25th and leave no later than 7 p.m. that evening. For departure on Sunday, please plan on being at the Muster until 1 p.m. If you’ll be flying, please keep this in mind when booking flights.
Base Camp will be located near Weatherford, Texas, which is about an hour drive west from either the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport or Love Field Airport. The exact coordinates will be emailed to everyone attending closer to the Muster. Do yourself a favor too if you’re flying and NEVER fly Spirit Airlines. Trust us…
The majority of our activity will take place outdoors and we’ll have a pre-arranged area to set up tents. While a final gear list will be emailed out to those attending, a small tent, bivy or some kind of shelter is required. What you want to sleep in to stay out of the elements is up to you, but please limit it to a 2 person tent at the largest.
Quality meals are included in the registration price and you definitely won’t leave hungry! No box lunches here! You’ll also get an awesome T-Shirt and Morale Patch commemorating our first ever ITS Tactical Muster. While we’re planning on running a Muster each year, there will only ever be one first Muster!
There’s a ton more planned for you to take home, but you’ll just have to be there to find out what.

This should be called Inaugural ITS Tactical Muster.

It's on my calendar... which makes it "totally official." Not to mention I'm searching for flights as we speak... woo hoo!
Sounds awesome. I think I'll save some money up and go. Quick question, will there be trees near the bivouac site? I use a tarp and 550 cord for a shelter.
Damn! I only wish I could make it. A fan of the website for a while, but I do wish I could get there.
Adrian, I don't think you'll see the Gear List unless you're signed up. Patrick, It took me a while to come to terms with the $800 price tag, but at the same time they're providing a lot. I don't think ITS is going to pocket much on this one based on what they'll likely spend to make it legendary. Remember, there is only one "First Annual."
Couldn't agree more Leslie, it's funny you posted this comment today as I was already in the process of changing it! Hope to see you there!
I agree, you are getting a lot for your money. Unfortunately no matter how awesome the muster will be, I will still be poor. You guys have fun for me.
