Cowboys & Cowgirls,

Please join the West Point Gun Club and the Mattaponi Sundowners this Sunday, October 16th, 2016, for our annual Breast Cancer Awareness and Fund Raiser Match, “Shoot for a Cure”.

The message below from Sassy Shooting Sours has the details about the Fund Raiser.

The match will start shooting at 12:30 on Sunday but we are asking that everyone please try and arrive no later than 11:30, that will give you time to get registered and look over the raffle items, silent auction items, items for sale, and all of the other activities associated with our “Shoot for a Cure” match.

The dress code for the day is “Standard Cowboy Dress” with “pink” being the color of the day.

The stages have been written by Sassy Shooting Sours and are attached in MS Word and PDF formats.


Hope to see you all on Sunday.

Safe Travels,

Howdy Cowboys and Cowgirls,

Well, October is here.  You know that means, Breast Cancer month!!

We will be holding our annual Breast Cancer match on Sunday, October 16, 2016.  Gates will open at 0930, safety meeting and announcements at 1200 and shooting starting at 1230.

We hope that you all can join us.  This is a very important cause; not only to me but to the people you have cancer and are relying on us to help through the Relay For Life campaign.  This campaign also helps with research to find better diagnostic tools and better treatment options.

I’m hoping to exceed our contributions from last year which were slightly over $3200.  I know this is a big challenge but it has been every year and the “cowboys” have always exceeded my wildest dreams with their generous donations and support.

I’m really hoping that you can attend the match but if something will be preventing you from attending and you would like to donate please send a check.  The check needs to be made out to: THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY and mail to Pat Graves 3030 King William Ave. West Point, VA. 23181.  Please also email me so I know to be on the lookout (  Please do not delay in this because I want to turn in the money at the match and not later.

We will have items for sale, silent auction and raffle.  All money collected from match fees, sales, auction and raffle will be donated to the Relay For Life team.  West Point Gun Club will not be retaining any money from this match.

Mark your calendar on Oct. 16 and make plans to join us. Please come out and help support this worthy cause.  Help us prevent and stop cancer before it touches another one of us.
