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.

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.
Video covers all six stages, time stamped index of stages and shooters are listed in the description section of the video.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
