Sunday Mattaponi Sundowners

Cowboy Action Comments Off on Sunday Mattaponi Sundowners

Howdy All Cowboys and Cowgirls,

Ready to finally shoot a match with the Mattaponi Sundowners?  We sure hope so.  Attached are the stages for Sunday. Gates will open at 1000, safety meeting at 1200 and shooting starts at 1230.  I just checked with Nick’s, we will be able to go eat after the match. They are reserving the back room for us. Wearing a mask into the restaurant is required under Stage II of reopening. It can be removed to eat, kind of hard to eat without doing that. Hey, I didn’t say it first, your Governor did.

I didn’t want to provide water at the match as we usually do because of cross contamination but I don’t see a way around this with the temperatures in the 90’s. If you aren’t comfortable with this please bring your own water or sports drink in your own cooler.

We will try to practice social distancing. Please be mindful that you may be comfortable getting closer than 6’ but the person around you may not be, so please keep this in mind.  We strongly suggest that you wear a mask but this isn’t required.  We will set up a way for you to safely use and touch the handles (etc) the portapotty. With the Phase II in place we will not be limited to a group of 10, so we should be able to handle our normal posse` numbers.

We are looking forward to seeing our friends and Cowboy family again. We sure have missed y’all. See ya Sunday. Don’t forget this Sunday is Father’s Day, also.

Sassy and Potter

Smoke On The Mattaponi

Cowboy Action Comments Off on Smoke On The Mattaponi
Cowboys and Cowgirls,
 
Well, the time has come for a decision.  The uncertainty of the Covid19 has made me decide to cancel the Smoke On The Mattaponi match.  Many factors have made this decision for me: businesses closed, unemployment up, the “Stay at Home” policy making soliciting sponsorship difficult, making plans for the luncheon, will the place where we get the awards from be open soon enough to accommodate our needs plus what phase of Virginia reopening will we be in at the time of the match. For all of these reasons it have made this event difficult to call but we do know it would not get the consideration that it deserves if we have to do everything last minute.
 
It has been suggested that I postpone and reschedule, but with other clubs in the same situation trying to reschedule and other clubs planning their two day matches, it’s just not going to work out.  I even tried to call SASS but they were closed, so I had to send an email.  
 
For those who have already registered we will be contacting you to see if you want your checks back or for us to shred them.  
 
I will be submitting the application for next years Virginia State Black Powder Shootout to SASS soon.  
 
Hope next year we will not be in this situation and not only can we enjoy shooting the Smoke match but also all of the matches we have been missing with all of our friends (Cowboy family) in good health.
 
Stay safe and we hope to be seeing y’all soon.

Cowboy Matches

Cowboy Action Comments Off on Cowboy Matches
Howdy All Cowboys and Cowgirls,
 
We are sorry to announce that the scheduled Cowboy matches for May 17 and 23 are cancelled in accordance with the “Stay at Home” policy for the state.
We are not sure what will happen at this point to the “Smoke On the Mattaponi”. We understand that May 8th has a possibility of opening of some Non Essential businesses but as it stands now the “Stay at Home” policy will remain until June 10. Let’s keep our fingers and toes crossed that this holds out and doesn’t get extended.
Once a decision has been made, closer to the date of the match, we will notify everyone.
By the time we get to shoot again, we all may need mentors. Did you hear that our Governor said we can do “drive up gun purchases” ?
Y’all stay safe and hope to see you soon.

Howdy All,

 

It was a bit cool today and stayed that way.  Well, Frontier Mick was still walking when I last saw; no broken knee caps or lynching.  It was a good match even though I only shot ½ of it.

 

Congrats to Cody Maverick as Overall Match winner.  Congrats to Beartooth, Marshall P. C. Wabash, One Eyed Jane and Prairie City Slim for shooting CAD.

 

I was good seeing everyone. Remember the Gathering deadline for applications is Feb. 28, so get your applications in.  See y’all next Sunday at Cavalier.

Howdy All Cowboys and Cowgirls,

Well, NOT a drop of rain during the match, in fact we had sunshine almost the entire match.  What a January day!!

Congrats to Cody Maverick as Overall Match Winner.  Congrats to Flatboat Bob, Cody Maverick and Mack Moshannon for shooting CAD.

We enjoyed having Mack Moshannon (another Pennsylvanian) and Tom Mix with us today.  Today was Tom Mix’s first match. We had another “new” shooter today, Doc Pill Filler.  It was good to see him.  Y’all will owe me because I’m about to pay Cody to make sure I never see stage 3’s rifle sequence again!!!  I was also the only P.

Don’t forget to get your application for “The Gathering On The Mattaponi”.  You can go to www.westpointgunclub.com and get the application.

We want to continue to wish Remo Williams and Major B. S. Walker a speedy recovery.
