Howdy All,

It was a bit cool but even I didn’t need a coat until the last 2 stages and not a drop of rain.

Congrats to Cody Maverick as Overall match winner. Congrats to Cody Maverick, Flatboat Bob and Sassy for shooting CAD.  It was a great and fun match with a little thinking required (ain’t just saying cuz Potter wrote it). It was great!

We at Mattaponi Sundowners wish all of you a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!  Remember our service men and women that can’t be home with this holiday and say a little pray for them.  If you are traveling please drive safe.

Sassy and Potter

Howdy All Cowboys and Cowgirls,

Well another one is in the books.  It was a rather cold today especially with the wind, for most of us that is, I admit I was chicken and stayed in the truck all day. We didn’t have many today but the ones we had were brave and tough.

Congrats to Cody Maverick as Overall match winner. Congrats to Flatboat Bob, Beartooth, Kuba Kid and One Eyed Jane for shooting CAD. 

This is a unusual month and we will be having a 4th Saturday match before Thanksgiving. More information will be coming later in the week. 

Hope to see you next Saturday at West Point and Sunday there will be a match at Pepper Mill Creek.

Shoot For A Cure

Uncategorized Comments Off on Shoot For A Cure

Howdy All,

Well, this day is over and Shoot For A Cure 2019 is history.  Well it was one for the books; had plenty of cowboys and cowgirls show up to shoot and some willing to shoot in spite of the rain, no match shot and money raised.  What a weird day!!  I’m sorry for the rain and no match but I can’t control the weather.  I don’t mind shooting from cows or horses but we would have needed ducks today.  I knew we were in trouble of having the match when I looked behind and saw a river flowing from bay 2 into bay 1.

It was so good to see Cotton Connie today.  Please continue to keep her close at heart and in prayers.  Oh, Kuba, what can I say?  I was beautiful and thank you so very much for 2 such fitting songs. Flatboat, thank you for the pray, it was wonderful.  Beyond this I’m not naming more names because I will leave someone very important out.  All of you that have worked so hard to make this a success from buying and donating the items, selling items to everything in between; I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

This match, as I’ve said, isn’t about me but about the people and the cause.  It’s a cause that has touched all of us in one way or another.  We must continue the fight to helps those that need it, to find the advancements and a cure.  Y’ALL ARE AMAZING!!!!  YOU TRULY ARE A FAMILY even had little squabbles like kids but we do love one another.

It’s so weird to have a match but not be announcing scores or clean shooters but I will announce that as of this moment we raised $13,000+.  We have a little more money to come.  When I have the official total I will send it out. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!  I LOVE EACH OF YOU!!

Time for a hot bath and a little TV then bed, may skip TV and just go to bed.

Thank you to those that stayed and helped with the tear down.

Sassy

Shoot For A Cure

Uncategorized Comments Off on Shoot For A Cure

Howdy All Cowboys and Cowgirls,

Well that time of year so almost here, 27 days away.  That’s right, the annual “Shoot For A Cure” match is just around the corner.  We have lofty goals for this year.  One of our Cowboys has put us to the challenge of not only exceeding our goals of $1 more but has challenged us to make it to $10,000.

Y’all do so much to make this match a success I hate to ask for more but I’m not above it either.  I’m begging that we all do a little more.  This match isn’t to shine a spotlight on me but I would like to shine it on the survivors that we celebrate with and for those that we shed tears over loosing. They are the real stars.  BUT it is also about raising money for those that will need help with the cost of treatment, need help with daily living during treatment and research to stop this dreaded disease.  We think that we don’t want our money to go to research, in many cases I’m right there with you, but research has made cancer more survivable in many ways; such as breast cancer, colon cancer and prostate cancer just to name a few and others cancers also have better ways for early detection thanks to this research.

This year, as in years past, the WPGC has graciously said they will again support our endeavor with a $5 donation for each shooter that will do early registration, show up and shoot the match.  Early registration also helps me greatly be able to focus on other important aspects of this match.  Green Top Sporting Goods has generously donated another shotgun or value of the shotgun in the form of a gift certificate for us to raffle.  They have also given us space at their “Expo” the first weekend of October.  Please come out and support them as they have supported “Shoot For A Cure”, also drop by our tent there and say Hello. 

At the match, we will have many items for sale, raffle, and silent auction; one of which will be a pistol. Of course, we will have others outside of Cowboy Action Shooting that will be able to purchase tickets for the Green Top gift card but the pistol will only be open to those that are Cowboy shooters and present at the match.  Wistful and Inita Shoot have been busy already with T shirt and sweat shirt sales which will also be available at the match.  If you would like to order a sweat shirt, zipped or pull over hoody, please contact them.

There are many of you Cowboys and Cowgirls we haven’t seen in awhile and we miss you.  Please get off the couch or whatever you have been doing and please come out and join us on October 20 to “Shoot For A Cure”.  To pre-register for the match please email Inita Shoot at gambler.kb@gmail.com. Please include this information: name, alias, category, email address and phone number. DO NOT send money.  All money will be collected at the match.  As in each year past, ALL money collected will be donated to the “Turtles”, our area Relay For Life team.

I hope that we can make the goal of $10,000 but more importantly I hope to see everyone of you that mean so much to me at the match.

Inita Shoot’s correct email is: gambler.kb@gmail.com

Also, if you would like to donate but you know that you can’t make it to the match, please make checks to:

American Cancer Society

 Send to:
Pat Graves
3030 King William Ave.
West Point, VA 23181

Thanks, sorry for the mistake and forgotten material

Howdy All Cowboys and Cowgirls,

Well, we missed quite a few of y’all today and you were missed.  It was a good day for shooting, didn’t get hot until the 5th stage but the tents and fans helped.

Congrats to Cody Maverick as Overall match winner.  Congrats to Cody, Potter County Kid, Swifty McDraw and Sassy for shooting CAD.  It was a good match.

We got to welcome 2 new shooters with us today. Telsa Ranger just moved from PA to VA and Flatboat’s grandson, Tec’s Terror who shot his first SASS match ever.  He didn’t do bad.  We also want to wish Telsa’s wife well in her knee surgery on Monday.  We hope that she is shooting with us soon.

Don’t forget to get your apps in for Range Wars, the deadline is close.  Don’t forget to register for “Shoot For A Cure” so we can get extra money from WPGC.  For each shooter that will pre-register and shoot the match we will get $5.  Send your name, alias, category, email and phone # to gambler.kb@gmail.com.  If anyone would like to donate and can’t make the match sent your donation to Sassy Shooting Sours 3030 King William Ave.  West Point, VA. 23181.  We hope to see many of you at the match.

Don’t forget Pungo is not shooting next Saturday but Cavalier is shooting on Sunday.  Potter, I and others will be spending the weekend at the Green Top Expo selling tickets for “Shoot For A Cure” for the gift card donated by Green  Top.

Sassy and Potter
