Wartrace Regulators Cowboy/Wild Bunch Match 5/15/10

28 Cowboys and Cowgirls decided not to join the FWSA ( Fair Weather Shooters Association) and came to Wartrace instead of believing the weather forecasters. They made the right choice, although it was overcast and humid there was no rain. Due to the construction in the "Old Town", the entire match was shot on the "Hill".

I had to work and got to the range just as the mostly Cowboy Posse was finishing up. The mostly Wild Bunch Posse was just preparing to shoot their last stage, the Outlaw Cabin. I was able to take some pictures, however that is not the best stage to take pictures in. I suggested to Gringo Gordo that he might want to shoot this stage right handed since I had a better angle for right handed shooters. He wasn't very receptive of the idea.

We had 12 Cowboy shooters and 18 Wild Bunch shooters slinging lead down range. When it was over all the Outlaws had been run out of Wartrace one more time. Thanks to Papa Dave Wild Bunch is growing at Wartrace.

After the last shot was fired Hot Lead Dancin' told me he had a Clean Match, Feisty Mama disagreed. Hot Lead said it was clean in his mind anyway, that might be the easiest way for me to shoot a clean match as well.

The Top Cowboys were, Two Clicks, Latigo Jim, Sheriff Frank Canton, Johnny Bodock and Dobber.

Top Wild Bunch were Emmett Moon, Marshall Red Stockburn, Duck River, Frank Buckshot, and Deadwood Miner.

Congratulations also to our Clean Shooters; Wild Bunch, Emmett Moon and Deadwood Miner.
Cowboy and Cowgirl; Doc Holly Mae and Evil Butch.

Don't forget we are hosting the 2010 Tennessee State Championship Oct. 7-9 for more info go to the State Match Link on our website.

We will need to have several work days in preparation for this, I'll send out e-mails as the dates become available.

Our next Cowboy match will be June 5th, it will be great fun and I hear we'll be having several guests from the north, east, south and west. I think many are planning to shoot with us on Saturday and North Alabama Regulators on Sunday.

Hope to see you in June.
