Wartrace Regulators March 6 2010 Match

59 shooters converged on Wartrace for a great day of shooting. The day started out in the 30's and sunny, but by the time the shooting started it was near 50 and mid 50's before we finished.
Through out the course of the day we rode out to the Line Shack with a purty gal, had a run in with a vaquero over King Fishers road, tried to board the Train after being falsely accused of horse stealing and found ourselves in the middle of the Sutton-Taylor Fued.

My Posse started out on the Train and that was appropriate since I started with a train wreck.
Next we moved to the Corral and tried our hand at the Texas Star with the rifle, alternating between the Star and a square plate. Anything left on the Star could be cleaned up with your Scattergun. Then we had 2 pistol dump targets.
Then we moved to the Fort and were accused of stealing horses for the second time today.

After taking a break for some grub we rode out to the Line Shack with a purty gal, only to be confronted by her irate, soon to be late, brother. We finished up our day at the Cemetery where we had to make a road over a ornery vaquero.

We'd like to thank our Pards who came over from East Tennessee and also several who came up from Alabama to help up clean up Wartrace.

As always Whiskey Hayes wrote some fast and fun stages with "No P Traps" but with ample opportunity to get over confident and to exceed your speed limit.

Papa Dave was on a roll and was our Top Gun for the day, followed by Buck Dodgers, Will Reilly, Whiskey Hayes and Scattergun Kid. These 5 will make up our Shootist Category at the April 3rd Match.

Congratulations also go out to Slim Jim Dandy, Hardluck Hudgens and Pond Creek Pete for shooting Clean Matches.

Papa Dave, who heads up our Wild Bunch Matches opened them up to Cowboy shooters as well this winter due to weather related limits on opportunities to shoot. After trying this for 2 months with no problems our Mid-Month Match will now be a combined Cowboy Action/ Wild Bunch Match.
This will give those who like Wild Bunch plenty of opportunities to shoot. Cowboy shooters will get to see what Wild Bunch is all about. For more info click on Wild Bunch .

We'd like to thank everyone who came to shoot with us and invite all to come to our Mid-Month Cowboy Action/ Wild Bunch Match on March 20.

We had several spectators that came out to watch and would like to remind everyone to invite your friends to come out and see what Cowboy Action Shooting is all about.

Grey Horse came by to see us, it was great to see him again. Hopefully in a couple of weeks they will be able to put his knee back in. Latigo Jim was back shooting with us, good to see his "Smiling" face again. Cash Jackson was also shooting and it's always a pleasure to see him. Please keep these folks and Hot Lead Dancin's wife in your prayers.

And last but certainly not least, a special thanks to Annie Marlin for taking care of registration and stats.

Until next time Keep Your Powder Dry.
