45 cowboys and cowgirls rolled into Wartrace for our June Cowboy Match. I had to work and got there after shooting had started so didn't get to see everyone before the match. Some I didn't know were there until I saw the score sheet.
Lone Wolf Swain was there selling bullets. It was good to see Marshall Red Stockburn again, unfortunately he was selling off his stuff. We had shooters come in from Kentucky, Alabama and East Tennessee to join us for some fun.
Whiskey had some fun and fast stages and if I'm not mistaken they were 5 of last years State Match stages. I started the day with 4 misses on the first stage and did't get much better as the day progressed. We had sunshine, cloud cover, about 10 minutes of rain, but we were lucky and had a good day.
Ben T Iron was having a great day until his rifle broke on the last stage, but he was lucky it didn't happen last weekend at the Ohio State Match. Most shooters were apparently struggling some as only 3 shooters had "Clean Matches". Congratulations to Captain Grouch, Cumberland Drifter and Fort Knox.
Cumberland Drifter was the Top Gun of the day, followed by Vaquero Jake, Duck River, Shaddai Vaquero, Papa Dave, Captain Grouch, Ocoee Red, Lead Bone, Ben T Iron and Whiskey Hayes rounded out the Top 10.
Perfecto Vaquera was the Ladies Top Gun, followed by Dodge City Dixie, Alchemist Belle, Dirty Nerdy, Shez A Pistol and Russian Annie.

Scores when available
The next match at Wartrace will be the June 15 Cowboy/ Wild Bunch Match.
Wes Outlaw and his crew are making good progress on the new stages so hopefully we'll be able to shoot them a few times before the State Match.
The applications are available for the Tennessee State Match, we've filled up the last few years and had to start a waiting list so get your application in early.
Regulators Reckoning, The Tennessee State Championship.
