Wartrace Regulators Cowboy/Wild Bunch June 16 Match

31 Cowboys, Cowgirls and Wild Bunch shooters rode into Wartrace to brave the heat and try their luck on the same stages we shot at the June 2 match. As usual they were Whiskey Hayes typical good stages and they were modified by Papa Dave for the Wild Bunch shooters.

I don't know if it was just my shirt but I had 50 or more sweat bees on me at any given time. I sure am glad they don't generally sting.

Papa Dave and Buck Dodgers battled it out all day and in the end  Buck Dodgers was the Top Gun of the day, followed by Papa Dave, Scattergun Kid, Sheriff Frank Canton and Randy Saint Eagle rounded out the Top 5 for the Cowboy shooters.

Sunflower Kid was the Top Gun for the Wild Bunch shooters, followed by C W Knight, Slim Jim Dandy, Branchwater Jack and Emmett Moon rounded out the Wild Bunch Top 5.

Congratulations to CW Knight, Sheriff Frank Canton and Sunflower Kid for shooting "Clean Matches".

It was good to see Hennessey here shooting his first cowboy match in 9 years, welcome back.

I'd like to wish Charlie Bowdre, Papa Dave and Scattergun Kid good luck as they shoot End Of Trail, the SASS World Championship, next week.

The next match at Wartrace will be the Long Range Match, June 23, followed by the Main July Cowboy Match July 7. For more info always check out our Website.

If you're looking for a good match to travel to check out the Black Gold Shootout, you know Copperhead Joe and that gang know how to have fun.

Blackwater and his band Milkbone will be there playing some great Southern Rock, don't miss it.

Happy Trails until we meet again, shoot straight and keep your powder dry.

Wartrace Regulators June 2nd Cowboy Match

44 Cowboys and Cowgirls rolled into Wartrace today to live out some Cowboy fantasies and have a little  fun. Whiskey Hayes set up a good match, even at Wells Fargo Bank where some weren't fond of the pistol knock down target. The KD was close and went down easy if you hit it (which I didn't).

At the Gallows you had to shoot your way out of a hanging. At the Line Shack you were a Texas Ranger trying to arrest Juan Cortina. In Grafton's you were Blue Duck in a gunfight with Gus. At Grafton's you had split pistols and split shotgun so you covered a lot of ground in one room.  At the Cemetery you were Marshall Thomas trying to arrest Bill Doolin. Last at Wells Fargo you were Butch Cassidy robbing the bank.

Wells Fargo also had split shotgun and there were no "Stand and Deliver" stages. The weather was fantastic and the scenarios were fun.

Buck Dodgers was the Top Gun of the day followed by S A Pondwater, Tabasco Jot, Ben T. Iron and C W Knight rounded out the Top 5.

We also had 9 "Clean" shooters, congratulations to Ben T. Iron, Brush Creek, Cash Jackson, Jagged Rock, Link Jones, Papa Oso, Sunflower Kid, Tennessee Nud and Willy McCoy.

Last month we presented the Eagle Eye Award,  recognizing the Wartrace Regulator with the most "Clean" matches in 2011, to Papa Oso. I included his picture in the slide show but I don't think it got noticed. Since I had to work today before the match and wasn't able to take any pictures I thought I'd post that one again.

Congratulations Papa Oso.
