Mattaponi Sundowners: Saturday Scores


Turned out to be a pleasant day, especially for January.  Twelve shooters took advantage of it and enjoyed today’s match.  Three shot it clean: Tesla Ranger, Shinbone, and Cotton Connie.  You might recognize Shinbone by the name Leo or Jackass Flats.  He took a new cowboy name to go with his new SASS number.
Congratulations to Dakota Rambler for the win and the “almost clean except for that … diamond”..
We hope that Prairie City Slim recovers fully from his recent surgery and that Cody Maverick’s back ailment will improve soon and stop ailing him.
Eleven Gathering Applications have arrived.  Send yours soon or give it to Gary next Saturday at Pungo or Sunday at Cavalier’s.
Scores attached.

Mattaponi Sundowners: Saturday Match

Howdy all,

The Mattaponi Sundowners will be hosting our 4th Saturday match this coming Saturday January 28, 2023. The stages have been written by Major BS Walker and are sure to be fun and challenging. The gates will open at 8:00, safety meeting at 9:30, and first round downrange at 10:00. The weather is looking pretty good for February. A little cool in the morning, but warming up nicely to the mid fiftys and mostly sunny.

Hope to see you all join us.

Now on to some important news. Prairie City Slim is going to be undergoing hernia repair surgery on Thursday January 26. Please keep Prairie City Slim and One Eyed Jane in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you,

Potter County Kid

Mattaponi Sundowners: Side Match Details


The attachment provides details for the Side Matches planned for Gathering on the Mattaponi XVI.
There are some side matches that we will not be able to provide due to scheduling constraints and limitations of our range facilities.  We will not have any “rifle caliber” categories and we will not have Pocket Pistol or Derringer.
We will have people setting up targets and props for the main match before the Long Range match and they will have to clear the range before it starts.  There will be a hard limit on the end of that event because they have to set up Bay 2 for Saturday while we use Bay 3 for the Speed event.  There will also be a hard limit on the end of that because some re-arrangement of targets and props might be required.
With that in mind, shooters may be limited in the number of attempts allowed.

WPGC, Double Action Match

I hope everyone got plenty of ammo and a new shootin’ iron for Christmas. Now is the time to come out and shoot the DA match this Thursday, January 12, 2023. Gates will open at 08:30 and the format will be the same: 6 stages of main frame revolver, one of which will include a J-frame at the end. One J-frame only stage and one 1911 stage. I would appreciate it if you could let me know if you plan to attend. If we manage to have six or more, I can make the stages a bit more involved. If we have 4 or five we can have a steel challenge or a minimal match with fewer targets.

Please respond to me at:
