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.

Sassy and Potter

Father’s Day Mattaponi Sundowners

Uncategorized Comments Off on Father’s Day Mattaponi Sundowners

Howdy All,

There were some interesting stages but fun to shoot.  It was warm today and you have never known it but we had trouble keeping the tents grounded from the wind. There was no need for fans, Mother Nature took care of that and I for one was very glad she did.  Thanks to One Eyed Jane, who helped us all out by having us start with stages 3-6.

Congrats to Cody Maverick as Overall Match winner and to Kuba Kid as the ONLY CAD.

We missed many of our regular shooters but we hope that you all were out making some nice memories with your Dad’s or with your kids, if you’re really lucky you got to do both.

Smoke on The Mattaponi will be next Saturday.  It’s not too late to sign up, just has to be in an established category.  Go to the website of westpointgunclub.com for the application.  Hope to see y’all next Saturday.

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!!
