Smoke On The Mattaponi

Cowboy Action Comments Off on Smoke On The Mattaponi

Howdy All Cowboys and Cowgirls,

Well, it’s that time again to not blow smoke but to shoot some smoke.  “Smoke On The Mattaponi”, the Virginia State Black Powder match will be held on June 22, 2019.  We plan a fun filled day of shooting a little black powder, sitting around the chuck wagon eating some good vittles and swapping stories. Prairie City Slim will be writing the stages for the match so we know that they will be challenging but fun.

Plans are to set up the range for the match the day before the match.  Gates will open at 0800, mandatory safety meeting at 0930 and shooting starts at 1000.  We will shoot 6 fun filled stages without a break then have lunch. As soon as the match is over we plan a hardy lunch that is included in your match fee and then range take down.  Once the range take down is finished we will have the awards ceremony.

All established categories are recognized but you must register for the match and your category before the registration deadline of June 7,2019.  You can still attend and shoot the match after that date but you will have to shoot in an established category in order to be eligible for an award.  Attached is an application for the “Smoke On The Mattaponi” match.  Please complete and return to Whiskey Mae as soon as possible.  We need everyone’s help in completing this and returning it as soon as possible so we can get an accurate head count for the lunch.  We want enough food but of course we don’t want to come up short or have a lot of left overs.

SASS requires that all shooters for this match must be a current SASS member in good standing.  Please make sure that your SASS alias is spelled correctly including that your SASS badge number is correct.  All shooters names must be submitted to SASS for approval prior to the match.

We are also accepting sponsorships for this match.  If you are interested in sponsoring a stage or any part of this match it will greatly appreciated.  We will be working hard for great sponsorship again this year.

We hope to see y’all at the match.
