Rimfire Steel Comments Off on WPGC Rimfire Steel Match Reminder for WED, 02 AUG

Hello Shooters!

This is a reminder of our match on Wednesday, 02 AUG.  I sent an announcement out last week to inaugurate the Google Group Email platform for the Rimfire Steel Match.

We will continue to post all notices and scores on our web page so if you are not in the Google Group mail you can still get that information.  If you did not receive this email and would like to be added to the group, email me with your request.

Refer to http://www.westpointgunclub.com/shooting-programs/rimfire-steel/ for a description of these matches and equipment requirements. In addition, the Open class will be available. In addition to that, the Cowboy Class will allow two Single-Action revolvers to be fired “gunfighter style” (one in each hand).

Gates open at 8:30 a.m.; match starts at 10.

WPGC Rimfire Steel: WPGC Rimfire Steel Match Announcement for WED, 02 AUG

Rimfire Steel Comments Off on WPGC Rimfire Steel: WPGC Rimfire Steel Match Announcement for WED, 02 AUG

Hello Shooters!

Ok, first things first.  I want to thank Slim for covering my last two matches.  Our next match is on WED, 02 AUG.  Weather Bug says it’s going to be in the 80s with humidity at less than 60%.  So, it should be a good day for shooting.

Now for some housekeeping.  The WPGC has recently established a Google Group for our communications platform.  So, the Rimfire Steel Match emails will be coming from that group.  On 13 JUL, I sent out invitations to join the group; not everyone on my email list responded.  For that reason, I am sending our two notices; one from the “old” group and the other through the Google Group.  If you only received the email from the “old” group, please let me know so I can ensure you are added to the Google Group.  Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this transition.

Ok, here is the rest of the normal information:

Mattaponi Sundowners: IMPORTANT- SASS Scoring

Cowboy Action Comments Off on Mattaponi Sundowners: IMPORTANT- SASS Scoring

Cowboys & Cowgirls,

You may have just seen a similar message from the Cavalier Cowboys.

SASS has just announced that effective immediately all SASS Sanctioned Cowboy Action Shooting matches are to be scored using Total Time.

You can read the announcement below from SASS.

A “sanctioned” match is when there is a contract between SASS and the match organizers that defines how the match will be conducted. This includes state matches, state blackpowder matches, regional matches, divisional matches and etc..

Previously SASS directed that regional and above matches use Rank Points for scoring and matches at the state level and below could use either Rank Points or Total Time for scoring.

The Mattaponi Sundowners have always used Rank Points (with the exception of the Smoke match), specifically because that was the scoring system used at the major SASS matches. 

Therefore, we will continue with our practice of using the scoring system used by SASS at it’s major matches and we will switch to Total Time scoring, effective immediately for all our matches.

FYI, the Smoke on the Mattaponi match has been and will be scored by Total Time.

Safe Travels,

Striker

Dear SASS Match Directors, Event Organizers, RO Committee, and Affiliated Club Contacts:
 
After careful consideration and evaluation of the countless requests and movements regarding scoring methods for Cowboy Action Shooting™, the SASS Board of Directors do hereby decree that effective immediately, all SASS Sanctioned Cowboy Action Shooting™ matches are to be scored using Total Time.Please consider this your notice to that effect and make immediate changes to your match planning to accommodate the change.
 
SASS Sanctioned Cowboy Action Shooting™ matches will no longer be allowed to use any scoring method other than Total Time. Updated contracts will be issued in the coming weeks to reflect the change.

We will send out an match update on Friday with the final call but it is looking like a hot weather match. The stages have been designed so that we can place the big tents over the firing line and to minimize the amount of setup and tear down.

A note on our mailing list, in the very near future we will be converting our mailing list over to a Google Group, as we have done with the Double Action Matches. All of the communications for this match will be sent with our current email list but the communications for the 4th Saturday match will be with the new Google Group. So, please be on the lookout for the invite to that group in the next couple of days. 

Safe Travels,
