This is accomplished by teaching through "Living History". Each Trooper will learn about the time period and the 1st United States Cavalry (Rough Riders). They will in turn teach the general public by example in acts and speech to convey the sense of seeing live historical events (no matter how small). There are no "characters" that a Trooper will become. They will be generic in that they could fit into that time period without taking on a persona.
Dues to become a member of K Troop are $10.00 per year. This is used for the expenses from mailing a newsletter on a monthly basis to the membership.
A member must only attend one (1) function per year. A member must have a presentable uniform that closely reproduces the Rough Rider Uniform. New members will be given time (6 months) to put together a uniform.
When firearms are used, all directions will be followed and safety will come first. All firearms, blanks and dummies will be inspected by staff before use.
K Troop not only represents themselves as Rough Riders, but the Texas
State Railroad State Historical Park as well. The Troopers will
act accordingly at all times. By signing and dating this form, the
undersigned accepts these conditions.
