Cowboy Action

Saturday match

Howdy All,

Well some cowboys had more sense than others, the ones that stayed home. Good thing is, we all shot CAD.

I apologize to those that came especially when an hour or more was spent driving. We made the best decision we could based on what the dumb weather people said. They don’t know _ _ _ _!! Remember the Shoot For A Cure match last year? Well, this wasn’t far from it. We got soaked trying to put up last minute tents but it didn’t let up. Thank you all for the great help with taking everything down. I’m sorry we couldn’t have made a better decision about having the match but we did the best we could. By the time I got the guns in the house and then the rest of the match stuff from the truck and to the house I was wondering if we did the right thing because the rain stopped then I went to put the truck away, it started pouring again. Yep, we did right!

We will see this match again, we will be shooting it in place of Shoot For A Cure’s match in October

Thank you for all of the help with set up, tear down and the effect of coming today. Hope the W Va State is having better luck.

Howdy All,

Well, we managed to miss the rain that fell from the sky but sure got the humidity.  We had good stages, good friends and a good time; can’t beat that.

Congrats to Major B. S. Walker as Overall match winner. Congrats to Flatboat Bob, Potter County Kid, Major B. S. Walker and Bingo Montana for shooting CAD.  It sure was good to have Cotton Connie back with us today. Congrats to Dough Boy for getting his first “popper”.

There are no matches next weekend as far as I know being the 5th weekend of the month. Oh, boy! Honey Do lists.

Hope to see y’all in 2 weeks at Pungo and Cavalier.

Howdy All,

Well, the weatherman lied again! It did rain some but with the tents no one got wet while shooting. Great match Cody and great planning Potter. We got to debut a new target. It wasn’t one of my best stages but I had fun, better had for as long as I’ve wanted this target.

Congratulations to Cody Maverick as Overall match winner. Congrats to Flatboat Bob, Sassy and Dough Boy for shooting CAD. Can you believe Dough Boy hasn’t shot 10 matches yet and has his first CAD already.

We hope all of you had a good time. Thanks you for all of the hard work setting up and tearing down. We look forward to seeing y’all next Saturday at West Point.

Remember to keep Missouri Marshal in your prayers.

Sunday match at Mattaponi Sundowners

Howdy All Cowboys and Cowgirls,

This Sunday we will be holding a match at Mattaponi. We will be trying out a new target and are looking forward to it.  Gates will open at 1000, safety meeting at 1200 and shooting starts at 1230.

The weather isn’t looking too bad. We will have tents and fans as needed. We still will be trying to practice social distancing and wearing a mask is suggested but optional. Please do not arrive at the last minute as it makes getting posse assignments difficult.

We have an update on Missouri Marshal. He says that he is slowly improving and now able to walk around in the house without assistance of a walker. He is to see the doctor this week with hopes of getting the staples and drains removed. Please keep him and Trina in your prayers.

Looking for to seeing you Sunday.

Shoot For A Cure

Howdy Cowboys and Cowgirls,

With much thought, soul searching and knowledge; I regret having to do this but Shoot For A Cure 2020 is CANCELLED.  You all know me well enough to know that I try to be a good cowgirl but I also try to be a good nurse and the nurse and cowgirl in me tell me it’s my job to try to keep everyone I love safe.

There has been too many people this year affected by illness, loss of job or reduced hours plus the worry of the risk of illness. It is hard to practice social distancing in a match so filled with love and support. We also can’t get the shirts to sell which is a big money maker, we won’t be having an Expo at Green Top which is another big money maker and I just can’t ask for donations from someone that may be experiencing any hardships due to Covid19.

I just hope that everyone can understand that I love all of y’all too much to put anyone at risk of possible serious illness. I will do all that I can to make 2021 Shoot For A Cure a great match. I appreciate all of the hard work that goes into this match from everyone especially all that Inita Shoot and Wistful McClintock do for it but we will just have to wait another year.

Stay safe. The Mattaponi Sundowners will be shooting a match on the day that we would have had the Shoot For A Cure. We will do all that we can to make this a fun match.  I know there might be a few people that would still like to make a donation to the American Cancer Society, we will be glad to accept this and get to the proper people for you. Just make your check out to: American Cancer Society and mail to Pat Graves 3030 King William Ave. West Point, VA 23181.

With much love,

Sassy Shooting Sours

Howdy All Cowboys and Cowgirls,

It got rather warm, all right HOT, today but thanks to tents and fans it was doable. Thanks to Frontier Mick for fun stages. I thought it was a good match. We hope that y’all had fun.

Congrats to Cody Maverick as Overall Match winner. There were NO CAD shooters today.  Thanks to everyone for coming and joining us. Thanks to those that helped with set up and take down. We can’t do it without you.

The prayer list grows: please keep Missouri Marshall and Tricky Trina in your prayers especially for a speedy recovery for Marshal. Ripsaw for A Fib. He is back home after a trip to the hospital. Let’s hope that heart beats in a normal rhythm and not one of it’s own. Flatboat Bob for blood pressure issues.

Hope to see y’all soon. Stay safe and Covid19 free, keep cool and keep hydrated.

Next weekend we have matches at Pungo on Saturday and Cavalier on Sunday. Let’s support as much as we can.

Sassy and Potter
