WPGC – Cowboy Match Reminder – Saturday June 25th, 2016

Cowboy Action Comments Off on WPGC – Cowboy Match Reminder – Saturday June 25th, 2016

Cowboys & Cowgirls,

The Mattaponi Sundowners will be hosting the Virginia State Black Powder Shootout, Smoke on the Mattaponi IX, on Saturday, June 25th, at the West Point Gun Club.

This match will be in place of our regular 4th Saturday match.

A separate email will be coming out later today to the registered shooters for the Smoke on the Mattaponi with all of the details on the match.

If you want to shoot in the Smoke on the Mattaponi match and have not registered, there is still time to do so. You will have to shoot in an established category, use “black powder” ammunition, be a current SASS member, etc., if interested please contact us as soon as possible and we will work out the details.

On the email I sent out with the scores from our 3rd Sunday match, I forgot to mention that we had the honor of welcoming a new shooter to our Cowboy Family. The cowboy was Frontier Mick, who has been observing several matches over the last couple of months and got to shoot his very first cowboy match with us on Sunday. So please join me in welcoming Frontier Mick to the fold and we are looking forward to shooting with him for many more matches to come.

Safe Travels,

Striker

Cowboys & Cowgirls,

The Smoke on the Mattaponi IX match is now a part of history, a very special thanks to our sponsors, shooters, and everyone that helped make this match a huge success!!!!

As part of our contract with SASS, we can not award or recognize the overall top shooters, only category winners. However, I have attached the score results from ACES that lists all shooters sorted by overall finish. Remember that our Smoke Match is scored by Total Time, not rank point like we usually use. I have also attached the scores sorted by category and the list of Clean All Day shooters.

Please congratulate all of our Category Winners!!!! and our Clean All Day Shooters!!!!!!!

I have a lot of photographs from the match and will be getting those up on our web site over the next several days, www.westpointgunclub.com.

We were blessed with not one but two Frontier Cartridge Buckarettes, Cardinal Wind and Mocking Jay, Mocking Jay was shooting her first ever cowboy match today. These young ladies can show all you wimps who are afraid to shoot black powder, just how it is done.

Next year will be the 10th anniversary of our all black powder match, we are going to be working hard over the next year to make sure the 10th anniversary is one to remember. Write it down on your calendars, Saturday, June 24th, 2017, Smoke on the Mattaponi X, you won’t want to miss it.

Now it is time to layout on the couch and rest my feet.

Double Action Comments Off on West Point Double Action Scores June 9 2016

Ten folks came out on a day when the weather was absolutely beautiful to shoot the West Point Double Action match.
It was good to see Dallas back shooting. Also enjoyed Goosefoot’s humor even though he didn’t shoot today.

There were no clean shooters today. Flatboat won the main match, Red won the J Frame stage and Beartooth won the 1911 stage. Congrats to all of our winners.
