Sunday, Mattaponi Sundowners match

Uncategorized Comments Off on Sunday, Mattaponi Sundowners match

Howdy All Cowboys and Cowgirls,

This is one of those weird months; Pungo Posse` will be shooting this coming Saturday and West Point will be shooting on Sunday.

Sunday’s match will be a Josey Wales match therefore those that want to shoot this will be required to shoot the Duelist or Gunfighter category and instead of the rifle you will be shooting 4 pistols and a shotgun.  However, if you would like to shoot 4 pistols instead of the rifle but shoot 2 handed you may do so but you will be scored in the usual manner.  We will also have the normal categories for those that just want to shoot the 2 pistols, rifle and shotgun.

Attached are the stages written Prairie City Slim.  It will be a fun day.  It may be a little warm but we will be using tents and fans as needed.  We will also have plenty of water but you may want your favorite sports drink.

The gates will open at 1030, safety meeting at 1200 and shooting starts at 1230.  We hope to see you there.

Just a thought to keep in mind; the “Shoot For A Cure” match will be October 20.  More news on this match will be coming next week.  To those that are going to the NY State match,; have fun, shoot well and be safe.

Sassy and Potter

Howdy All,

Well, what a wonderful day for shooting.  Can’t blame a dang think on the weather not sure the same can be said for the match writer. She got bit by the “match writers curse”. Worse part is, that’s the one stage I was looking forward to shooting but that dang “P” put a stop to that.

Congrats to Major B. S. Walker as the Overall match winner.  Congrats to our only 2 CAD shooters, Flatboat Bob and Red Cavanaugh.  I surely do hope that you all had fun.

Please keep the following Cowboys and Cowgirls in your thoughts and prayers; Goosefoot, Remo Williams, Clementine, Robert Greywolf and Kid at Heart.  I hear that Goosefoot is hanging in there but painfully and hopes to have rehab soon, Remo is doing hemodialysis 3 days per week, Clementine has a cyst in her bladder with plans to have it out at some time, Greywolf is in rehab and progressing and Kid at Heart may have to have part of his operative eye sewn closed to promote healing.  This update is as I understand it so I hope that I have it all right.

Tomorrow the Pepper Mill gang will be shooting with the first shot at 1000.  Next Sunday Cavalier will be shooting with details to come out later. Don’t forget to your applications in for Range Wars coming up in October.  Many of us will be shooting the Virginia State Championship.  Make sure you pack all that you need and then double check everything to make sure you have guns, ammo and leather.  Travel safely.  Hope to see y’all there.

Have a GREAT week and see ya next weekend.

Sassy and Potter

Howdy all Cowboys and Cowgirls,

The Mattaponi Sundowners will be shooting this Saturday.  Gates will open at 0800, safety meeting at 0930 and shooting starts at 1000.

Attached are the stages.

It’s supposed to be a little cooler, we sure hope so, but tents, fans and water will be available and used as needed.  At this point in time, I do not see a need to shoot other than regular cowboy dress.

We hope that you can make it.  Don’t forget the Star City Shootout match and get your applications in.

Howdy All Cowboys and Cowgirls,

Well, this one is in the books.  It sure was hot today, thank God for fans, tents and cold water.  Thank you all that were there for set up and helped with take down.  Before we get too far, just wanted to let everyone know that One Eyed Rooster is ok, just got over heated but ok now.

Congrats to Major B. S. Walker as Overall match winner.  Congrats to Major B. S. Walker, Flatboat Bob, Beartooth, One Eyed Jane and Will Sonnet for shooting CAD. CAD shows One Eyed Rooster but it was the way I put in the scores and he didn’t complete the match, therefore not listed as CAD.

We were glad to welcome X Mark and Saucy Susie who joined us from Colorado.  Good luck on the birth of that first grandchild.  We do hope that you can join us again.

We will be having a match on Saturday, starting at 1000.  It is supposed to be cooler.  More details will be coming.  Hope you can join us.

Howdy All,

Well today surprised us by getting so hot so quick.  We apologize for not being prepared and having fans out, we will try to do better next month.  Frontier Mick provided an interesting and fun match but I think he might have learned about movement stages in hot weather. Thanks Mick!  First one of many down.

Congrats to Major B S Walker for being appointment “Regulator”.  It was good seeing Ripsaw.  Thanks for nominating B. S. for Regulator.  It was really nice to have Flatboat Bob and Missouri Marshal there for the presentation since they are the only 2 Regulators from our area.  We are a little thin in that area.

We also have 2 observers there today that are interested in getting started in Cowboy Action. We hope to see them back soon.  Don’t know if y’all noticed a couple that came late and only stayed for a couple of stages.  We might be seeing them back next month.  They are our new friends from PA that have moved into the area.  We met them at the PA State Championship.

Congrats to Cody Maverick as Overall match winner.  Congrats to the husband and wife duo for shooting CAD, One Eyed Jane and Prairie City Slim.  We also send them Congrats and well wishes for celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary last week.

Pepper Mill Gang will be shooting tomorrow.

Take care, stay out of the heat and be safe.

Sassy and Potter

Mattaponi Sundowners match for Sunday

Uncategorized Comments Off on Mattaponi Sundowners match for Sunday

Howdy All,

We hate to do this but it looks like it’s going to be too dang hot to shoot Sunday. 

I don’t think it would be safe gun handling or safe for any of us with 99 degrees and humid.  We don’t have enough fans to fight that.

We hope to see y’all next Saturday.

Don’t forget to start getting your applications in for Virginia State Championship.  The application can be found on StarCityShootout.com.

Stay cool and hydrated.

Sassy and Potter

 


Howdy All Cowboys and Cowgirls,

Attached are the stages for Sunday, July 21.  Gates will open at 1030, safety meeting at 1200 and shooting starts at 1230.  Come out and welcome Frontier Mick as a new stage writer, this is his first match.

We know that the weather isn’t looking great but with heat at near 99 and humidity, we will have tents and fans to help us through this heat.  We will have a relaxed dress code but no open toe shoes or ball caps though.

If our plans for the match change we will send out an announcement as soon as possible, so keep an eye out for an email from us as early as Friday and as late as Saturday afternoon.

Hope to see y’all there.
