WPGC – Cowboy Match & Stages – Saturday July 30th, 2016

Cowboy Action Comments Off on WPGC – Cowboy Match & Stages – Saturday July 30th, 2016

Cowboys & Cowgirls,

We are holding a 5th Saturday cowboy match, this Saturday, July 30th, at the West Point Gun Club.

Since the weather forecast for Saturday looks to be very similar to this past Saturday, we are going to use the same strategy…
– Setup/Shoot in only one bay, shoot 3 stages then reset targets and shoot 3 more stages
– Have tents over the firing line, posse areas, loading/unloading tables
– Have fans setup throughout the shooting area
– Provide plenty of ice cold water
– Dress code, “Cowboy Casual”

I will send out the final match update on Friday morning with the GO, NO GO decision.

The stages have been written by myself and are attached in MS Word and PDF formats. We were going to have the debut match authoring of one Cody Maverick but his match is better suited for two bays so we will use it a little later in the year when the weather is cooler.

Cowboy Action Comments Off on WPGC – Cowboy Scores – Saturday July 23rd, 2016

Cowboys & Cowgirls,

If we could just figure out a way to tear down a match under the shade of tents with the fans running, then we would have this heat thing completely figured out.

Because today when you were under the tents with all of the fans running, it was very comfortable but when you stepped out in the sun, you felt like a rotisserie chicken being slow roasted.

The Mattaponi Sundowners held their monthly 4th Saturday match today at the West Point Gun Club.

Congratulations to Cody Maverick as the Top Overall Shooter. Congratulations to Frontier Mick, Major BS Walker, Smackwater and Will Sonnet as our Clean All Day Shooters.

The scores from ACES are attached in PDF format.
