Kansas Cavalry


The Kansas Calvary Chapter has been in existence for approximately ten years. The Chapter was formed when an organizational meeting was held at Fort Riley. When it was founded there were eight rigs. A number of the charter members belonged to other chapters and joined to help get the chapter started.

The logo for the charter is a replica of "Old Bill" and is taken from a statue located on the Parade ground at Fort Riley. At one time in its history, Fort Riley was the Calvary post for the U.S. Army. The new Chapter received permission from officials at Fort Riley to use “Old Bill” for our Chapter logo.

The Chapter is an active group. With the exception of January and February, we try to meet once a month. During the non-camping months, we have meetings at a favorite restaurant for lunch. When warmer weather arrives, we have a monthly muster. There are numerous campgrounds in Kansas, so there is never a problem finding a place to go. With the amount of history that has taken place in Kansas, there are always places to go and see. Local restaurants are usually found and everyone is well fed.

Our invitation to all SMART members and anyone who might be interested in SMART is always open, if you are traveling through and the opportunity arises, stop and join us and see what Kansas has to offer.
