6/18/11 Wartrace Cowboy/Wild Bunch Match

35 Cowboys and Cowgirls came to Wartrace to help us defend our town. We shot at the Line Shack, Cemetery, Livery Stable, K O Corral and Fort Sweeney. As is our normal we shot the same stages as we did the first of the month with a few changes for the Wild Bunch Shooters.

We had 3 Cowboys and new Wartrace Regulators shooting their first match. It's great when new members shoot their first match.

It was a warm day, but a breeze and clouds kept it nice most of the day. It got pretty hot on a couple of stages and the Cowboy Posse got rained on at the last stage.

The Wild Bunch shooters shooting those new-fangled auto-loading pistols topped the Cowboy shooters today, but I think they are just a passing fad. I don't think that auto ever take the place of Sam Colt's Single Action Army revolver.

Papa Dave (on one foot) was the Top Gun of the Wild Bunch and the Overall Top Shooter. In the Wild Bunch Match Papa was followed by Sunflower Kid, Slim Jim Dandy, Cherohala Chase and Branchwater Jack rounded out the top 5 Wild Bunch. 7 of the overall top 10 were shooting Wild Bunch, The Cowboys want another rematch.

C W Knight was the Top Gun in the Cowboy Match, followed by Randy Saint Eagle, Sheriff Frank Canton, Latigo Jim and Dusty Wilcox rounded out the top 5 Cowboys.

Wartrace Regulators June Cowboy Match

Well it seemed more like late July or early August instead of early June but 39 Cowboys and Cowgirls braved the heat and came out to help Butch and Sundance get away from the Pinkertons at the Line Shack; Frank James fight off another Pinkerton at the Cemetery; Matt Dillon fight off drunk cowboys at the Livery; Jessee James fight off the Pinkertons at the Corral; and Major Crompton's recruits fight the Indians at the Fort.

Due to the excessive heat Whiskey Hayes rewrote the stages at the last minute to cut down on the time and movement required. Two were "Stand and Deliver" and three had some movement, none had more than 4 shotgun KD'S. It was a good fast match for a hot day. We also opted to have 3 small posses to make things move a little quicker. Everyone pitched in and helped with posse duties and we had a great match.

We had the pleasure of having the Rider Gang, Shotgun Rider, Lady Rider, Sunset Rider and Pony Rider, from East Tennessee join us for the first time. This is a really neat family and I hope they had a good time and will join us again. Also from East TN. Iron Maiden and Boondock Saint came to visit us again. Campo Kid and Lauren, his sister, came down from Kentucky to whoop up on the the Tennessee Cowboys and he did a good job of it. Campo is one GREAT Kid and comes from a Great family. I really enjoy watching him shoot. If you haven't seen him shoot, check out Campo Kid on You Tube.

Campo Kid was the Top Gun of the day with a 5 stage time of 88.19 (I told you he was impressive), followed by Buck Dodgers, Papa Dave, Latigo Jim (it was good to have Latigo back shooting with us) and Whiskey Hayes rounded out the top 5. Great shooting guys!

Congratulations also to Ben Uriah, Buck Dodgers, Cash Jackson and Dobber for shooting "Clean Matches".

I hope everyone had as much fun as I did and hope to see you for our next match, June 18th for the Cowboy/Wild Bunch Match, for more info check out our Website.
