Mattaponi Sundowners: Sunday Match Results


It would have been a bit cool for our Saturday hours, but the weather was real nice for our Sunday schedule.  With plenty of sun, we didn’t even turn on the space heaters.
Welcome back to Buzzard Bayne, Matchstick Mitchell, and Mac Moshannon. Haven’t seen them for a while.  We also welcomed a new shooter – Major Gunz.  He’s new with our crowd but he has shot a couple of matches with our friends at Black Creek.
Congratulations to our two clean shooters: Mac Moshannon and … wait for it … Dakota Rambler.  Dakota was the match winner with no penalties and a bonus for hitting the flyer (a clay bird with turkey feathers).
Don’t forget: we shoot on the 9th and 17th in December and close the year with dinner and a gift exchange at Nick’s.
Scores attached.

We had a small posse at today’s match, which went quick and smooth with everybody pitching in where needed to help with the chores.
Congratulations to Ripsaw for the win, and to our three clean shooters: Ripsaw, Major B.S. Walker, and Lefty Spurmaker.
We shoot again next Sunday, Nov 19, but not on the 4th Saturday.  In December, we shoot on the 2nd Saturday Dec 9th and 3rd Sunday Dec 17 (followed by Christmas gift exchange at Nick’s).  Our normal schedule resumes in January.

Mattaponi Sundowners: Match Results Part 2

Howdy Again,

Addendum to Part 1: detailed scores are attached for those who like that format.  Also, I forgot to mention how much I appreciate having your registrations in advance.  ALL shooters were pre-registered this year !
Part 2: Through your generosity, we raised $17,029 for the American Cancer Society !  
That number is expected to grow before it becomes final.  We beat last year ($13,586) by more than $1.  Heart-felt thanks to all who made it happen.

Mattaponi Sundowners: Match Results Part 1


From my perspective, the Pat Graves Memorial Shoot For a Cure of 2023 was a complete success!  We had partly sunny weather with no rain, decent October temperatures, six fun-filled stages, and three possees of friends (some new and some for many years) who enjoy the sport of Cowboy Action shooting.
Congratulations to Cody Maverick, who was the match winner and Top Cowboy, and to J. C. Phoenix, who was Top Cowgirl.  Congratulations also to the 17 (that’s right – 17) shooters who shot “clean” although some would call it “No Misses, No P’s” that could be seen through the smoke.
The attachments list the clean shooters and scores by time and by category.
The subject line above is “Part 1”, which is what I will call the shooting part of the match and the scores.
Tomorrow, I’ll let you know about the all-important “Part 2”, which is the fund-raising part of this match.  A first-cut total was $12,500 before the match even started.  I’ll add additional raffle income, the WPGC contribution, and the auction proceeds tomorrow and send another email.  Thanks to all for your overwhelming generosity.

Mattaponi Sundowners: Shoot for a Cure update


Two updates for the Pat Graves Memorial Shoot For a Cure match:
1) Gates will be open around 9:30.  We will “Posse Up” at 12:00 for preliminaries.  Come early to socialize and buy lots of raffle tickets.  Shooting starts at 12:30.
2) All activity normally held downrange will be held in our “Storage Building” just in case it decides to start raining.  This includes check-in for the match and also includes the “store” with all of the numerous items donated for auction, raffle, or for sale.

p.s. The “Storage Building” is the white garage-size building East of the porta-potties.
