31 Cowboys and Cowgirls braved the 100+ degree heat to roll into Wartrace and have some Cowboy Action fun. Whiskey Hayes and Papa Dave for the first time I can remember, decided due to the extreme heat to have a relaxed cowboy dress code. The only requirement was a cowboy hat, I think it was welcomed by everyone.
Whiskey had his usual great stages with a good amount of movement on all but the Corral. But we had two clay tossers and clay birds to shoot, all we were missing was the Texas Star [or better yet 2 stars].
We shot all our stages in town, besides the Corral we shot the Train, Depot, Livery and Jail. There was plenty of ice water on the range to keep folks hydrated.
We had two shooters shooting their first Cowboy Match, Miss Scarlett and Joe Smith (a Buckaroo). I hope they enjoyed it and come back again.
Buck Dodgers was the Top Gun of the day, followed by Duck River, Barkeep, Randy Saint Eagle and Papa Dave rounded out the Top 5.
We had 2 Clean shooters, Cheyenne Thornton and Deadwood Miner, congratulations guys.
We had 7 Alabama shooters come up and join us, hope you pards can make it back often. I'd like to say a special thanks to Lickskillet Charlie for delivering my bullets.
I had to work in the morning and didn't get to the range until Posse 1 was almost finished with their 2nd stage, so I wasn't able to take any pictures. I have to thank both posses for letting me cut in and jump back and forth to catch up.
Scores When Available
A few of us are heading north next week to shoot in Copperhead Joe's Black Gold Shoot-Out
if you have some time and are looking for a really fun shoot call Joe and come on they'll make room for you.
The next match at Wartrace will be the July 14 Cowboy/Wild Bunch.
Until we meet again, Happy Trails and may all your shots ring steel.
