What a weekend!! Congratulates to Beartooth and Potter County Kid for all they have done to deserve the Regulator Status. I’m proud to be prejudice, since I’m married to one of them. Wear your badges with pride and never forget the reasons you were selected, keep being you!

Howdy All,

Attached are the results from today. It was a nice day for shooting and glad to have Lillypad join us.

Congrats to Major B. S. Walker as Overall match winner. Congrats to Ripsaw as the only clean shooter.

I’m sorry I missed today but I’m more than a little sore. I’m happy to say I now have a pink foot and pulse in my foot again. I want to thank each of you for the prayers, emails and ice cream sent my way.  I won’t be able to shoot for a couple of weeks but looking forward to at least being with y’all soon. Love you all.

Mattaponi Sundowners: gathering match results

Howdy All,

Well, we managed to finally have a match at WPGC. It sure was nice to see everyone again.  We sincerely hope that everyone had a good time.  We apologize for the things we have had to leave out but that’s what happens when you are waiting on the Governor to make decisions.

Congrats to Gun-Em-Down and Quilla Star as the top cowboy and cowgirl for the match.  Congrats to Cody Maverick, Flatboat Bob, Longhorn Louie, Major B. S. Walker, Prairie City Slim, and Quilla Star for shooting match.

Thanks to Prairie City Slim for the great match, to the set up crew and the tear down crew.  We can’t do this alone.

Mattaponi Sundowners will be having a match next Saturday. More match details will be coming on Tuesday.

Sassy would like to thank everyone for the well wishes and prayers.

Gathering on the Mattaponi and prayer request

Howdy All,

The important stuff first; if you haven’t registered for the “Gathering on The Mattaponi” but plan on shooting please send us an email telling us your name and what category you will be shooting in.  You can wait to pay on Saturday, first day of the match. It is very important that we get this information prior to the match as I need to get the computers set up as much as possible before Saturday.

On to the next part. I will not be shooting the match but will be coming as I feel I can.  My back went out a couple of weeks ago and it’s slow to come back. In the time that this was starting I noticed some changes in my right foot that was alarming.  Being hardheaded I did finally go to the doctor. What is going on with the right foot has been very painful at the same time as the back, it’s improving, some.  The doctor was alarmed when he couldn’t find a pulse in my right foot.  I was sent for some testing of the artery and they found a severe abnormally in the right leg. I was then sent to a vascular surgeon.  It seems that I have an arterial blockage in my right leg. I’m scheduled for OR (operating room) testing to find the exact place of the blockage and with big hopes this will only need angioplasty and stenting to open up the artery.  Anyway, that’s the plan and it’s scheduled for this to be done March 26. The reason I’m not shooting as I can’t risk any injury to my leg or foot as with severe lack of blood flow healing would be impaired.  All prayers will be greatly appreciated. Love you all. Sassy
