WPGC Double Action Match

WPGC is planning on holding the DA match on Thursday, April, 11, 2024. Again, the forecast is iffy, but it looks like rain will begin around 13:30. If that holds we will go ahead with the match. Please let me know if you plan to attend. I will send a notification between 17:00 and 19:00 on Wednesday, April 10. Please respond to:
 
 
Thanks, Leo

WPGC Rimfire Steel Match

I would like to wish everyone a Happy Easter Weekend.
 
WPGC will be holding our monthly Rimfire Challenge match on Wednesday, April 3, 2024. Slim will be recuperating from chemo over the next few months and feels like it is a bit much for him at the moment. I spoke with his wife, Phy yesterday and she says he is doing pretty well.
 
I will send out another reminder next week in the usual time slot and announce the schedule. The forecast for next Wednesday is, of course, rain, all day. I will wait until the day gets closer before making a decision on the match. 
 
Please forward your blessings and prayers to Slim and Phy for his speedy recovery.

WPGC Double Action: Tomorrow’s Match is Cancelled

Unfortunately, we don’t have enough for a match tomorrow. We only have 3 participants and I would have made four. We will try again next month. For me, I will continue with reloading and gun cleaning. Thanks to everyone who responded.

Mattaponi Sundowners: Saturday Match Results

Howdy Cowboys & Cowgirls,

 
We had great weather today at the range, a little cool but sunny.  Inita Shoot (Mrs Wistful) joined us for the first time in several years and Walker Colt made the trip with Arizona Anzie to shoot with us.
 
Congratulations to Walker Colt for the win and the clean match.  Others shooting clean were: Ripsaw, Potter County Kid, Swifty McDraw, and Kidd At Heart.  If we had a dagnabbit award, it would go to Dakota Rambler, closely followed by Inita Shoot who only missed 2 all day.
 
Scores attached.
 
Don’t forget that next Sunday is our Christmas match followed by a gift exchange at Nicks.

Mattaponi Sundowners: Sunday Match Results

Howdy,

 
It would have been a bit cool for our Saturday hours, but the weather was real nice for our Sunday schedule.  With plenty of sun, we didn’t even turn on the space heaters.
 
Welcome back to Buzzard Bayne, Matchstick Mitchell, and Mac Moshannon. Haven’t seen them for a while.  We also welcomed a new shooter – Major Gunz.  He’s new with our crowd but he has shot a couple of matches with our friends at Black Creek.
 
Congratulations to our two clean shooters: Mac Moshannon and … wait for it … Dakota Rambler.  Dakota was the match winner with no penalties and a bonus for hitting the flyer (a clay bird with turkey feathers).
 
Don’t forget: we shoot on the 9th and 17th in December and close the year with dinner and a gift exchange at Nick’s.
 
Scores attached.
