Wartrace July '09 Mid-Month Match

29 Cowgirls and Cowboys came out to Wartrace for our mid-month match. We had the best weather I've seen for a match this year. I managed to make it through this one without a "p", but I came really close at the cemetery.

The scores just got online today and Will Reilly and Papa Dave were 1 and 2, no surprise, those two are always at or very near the top.

I shot on the posse with Clancy O Conall, he is really doing well shooting Gunfighter, 4th Overall.
I'm not sure if he is a Jedi Gunfighter or not but I'm sure he soon will be.

Whiskey all ready has the stages set for our next match Sat August 1 and I'm sure they will be fast and fun as always.

Scattergun Kid and Buck Dodgers have the scores posted. Scores

Come on out in August and shoot with us and don't forget the Tennessee State Championship at Memphis this year in September , the Alabama State Championship in October and the Tennessee Black Powder State Championship at Possum Trott in late October.

Cowboy Action Shooting Keeps You Young

Blue Boy's 90th Birthday

49 Cowboys and Cowgirls had the pleasure of helping Blue Boy celebrate his 90th birthday during our July 4th Match.
Buxom Boo, Cody Kid, Lady Banker and Fort Knox hosted a nice celebration during our lunch break.
Cody Kid told us Blue Boy SASS 46773 started Cowboy Action Shooting in 2002.
Buxom Boo presented Blue Boy with a certificate from SASS recognizing him as the oldest active SASS competitor.
Will Reilly presented a plaque for his achievement from The Wartrace Regulators.
Charlie Bowdre presented him with the flag that has been flown over the range at every match since he became a Wartrace Regulator.
Lady Banker gave him a birthday cake and she and Boo passed out cupcakes for us all to enjoy.

Blue Boy shoots at most of our monthly matches and The State Championship. He occasionally travels , with his son Imis Twohofon SASS 46646 to other matches.
Blue Boy shot clay target sports with The Nashville Gun Club for about 30 years before discovering Cowboy Action Shooting. He said CAS was much more fun, anyone who shoots CAS knows it's more fun than any other shooting sport.
Blue Boy's father gave him his first gun when he was 10, so he's been shooting for about 80 years and hopes to be shooting for many more.

Blue Boy is a Great person and an inspiration to us all and I hope we can all get together again and celebrate his 100th birthday at the range as well.
