New venue for 2017!

Witherspoon Distillery expanded recently and has a large, beautiful venue - and they're hosting us for Muster this year!  Cash bar starts at 5:30, dinner around 6:00, and ceremony starts around 7:00.  Cartwright's Ranch House will be our caterer again this year, which is a GOOD thing!  Menu choices are grilled chicken, chicken fried steak, or steak - with wonderful sides and the same great family service as last year.  Please visit our Online Store (details on right side of this page) to make your menu selection.

*** Witherspoon's parking lot may fill up, so please check the parking map before heading to Old Town Lewisville.  Follow the link at the top right of this page, underneath the address for Witherspoon. ***

We hope you can join us at this fun new venue in Old Town Lewisville!


Please note - if you are immediate family of a fallen Ag and are joining us for dinner, you do not need to pay for your dinner.  Please call or email Elliott Beard to ensure he has your dinner(s) covered.

We'll have our largest silent auction in YEARS to help raise money for local scholarships.  Bring your checkbook and be ready to bid on a custom framed Ben Knox print, a $500 Lucchese gift certificate, an authentic Witherspoon whiskey barrel (Barrel #12!), multiple gift baskets, and other great items!

Muster volunteers needed!  Our goal is to have a flawless, dignified Muster as we celebrate that intangible spirit that makes Texas A&M so unique. We could use help with many different things, so please let us know if you're willing to help!  Some duties include:
  • Assisting with the final reservation headcount & communicating with staff so that we have the right amount of food.
  • Coordinating the room set-up.
  • Pick up the printed Muster programs and distributing them at each place setting.
  • Help with registration prior to the ceremony
  • Ensure that a complete list of Aggies who have passed during the year is available so that their names can be included in Roll Call if someone wishes to have the name called. (We'll work in advance to get this done.)
  • Set up the audio/visual for use before and during the ceremony.
  • Be a point of contact for our speakers.
  • If you are willing to volunteer, please contact Muster Chair Elliott Beard '05 or President Dale Gibson '83 (see Officers page)
