HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Ripsaw which was our Overall Match Winner today. Congrats to Ripsaw, Major B. S. Walker, Tesla Range and Sassy for shooting CAD.

Mattaponi Sundowners Results

Howdy All,

Well the first 3 stages were ok but boy it sure got cold on the last 3 stages. At least that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. It was nice to have the 2 Major’s and Flatboat back with us today. We heard that the fire dept was at Quilla’s house this morning and we hope that all is well and a false alarm.

Congrats to Dakota Rambler as the Overall Match winner. Congrats To Flatboat Bob, Major B. S. Walker, One Eyed Jane, Poney Racer, Potter County Kid, Ripsaw and Tom Mix for shooting CAD.

Next Saturday the Mattaponi Sundowners will be having a match. We hope that you can join us. Details will come out later in the week.

The match will be Saturday and Sunday, March 19 and 20. It will feature 12 stages with 6 stages on each of the days. Now all we need is, YOU!
