Wartrace Regulators April 5 Cowboy Match

59 Cowgirls and Cowboys rolled into Wartrace to try to rid the area of all manor of rif raf. We started the day celebrating Vaquero Jake's 17th birthday, Perfecto Vaquera  and Shaddai Vaquero his proud parents even brought cake.

At Wartrace we like to recognize the club member who shoots the most "Clean" matches in a year. It was my privilege to present the 2013 Eagle Eye Award to Reno Mustang.

Papa Dave gave the Safety Meeting and Jagged Rock offered a prayer and led us in the pledge.

We had 4 posses and shot the Cantina, Jersey Lilly, Fort Sweeney, Jail and Cash Jackson Mine. As always Whiskey Hayes wrote some fun and fast stages. The top 2 shooters were under 95 seconds.

We had 2 first time shooters and I think by now they are hooked. Welcome Sunrise Carson and ToyBoy Bandito.

We also had pards come in from East Tennessee, West Tennessee, Alabama and Kentucky. The weather was a little cool but definitely not bad. Several of us started out a little fumbly, it took me 2 stages to get started.

Cumberland Drifter was the Top Gun of the day, followed by Buck Dodgers, Papa Dave, Will Reilly, Widdowmaker Hill, CW Knight, Shaddai Vaquero, Randy Saint Eagle, Dodge City Dixie and Tombstone John rounded out the Top 10.

Dodge City Dixie was the Ladies Top Gun, followed by Perfecto Vaquera, Garnet Gal, Alchemist Belle and Buxom Boo.

I have to brag a little on Birdshot Pete, while listed as a Buckaroo, he shot the match Outlaw and was the highest finishing Outlaw shooter.

As stated earlier we always like to recognize shooters who keep it all together and shoot "Clean" matches, Congratulations Branchwater Jack, Cumberland Drifter, Deadwood Miner, Dirtwood Dobber, Frank Buckshot, Hardluck Hudgens, Imis Twohofon, Papa Oso, Whiskey Benton and Will Reilly.

It's the time of year where many folks will be travelling to matches, this coming weekend Dodge City Dixie and Reno Mustang are headed to the Louisiana State Championship and with Slick McClade running it, it should be a great match. We may have other members headed that way also.

If you can travel somewhere and see how other clubs do things, it's usually a lot of fun.

The next match at Wartrace will be the April 19 Cowboy/ Wild Bunch Match, come join us if you can. For more info always check out our website.
