First Wartrace Regulators Cowboy Match Of The Year

20 Cowgirls and Cowboys ignored the 100% chance of rain in the forecast and came to Wartrace for the first Cowboy  Match of the year. Papa Dave started with a brief Safety Meeting and Jagged Rock offered a prayer and led us in the Pledge. We were trying to get as early a start as possible to try to beat some of the rain, it didn't work.

Stage 1 was the Livery Stable and before we finished it the rain was coming down. Whiskey Hayes made a good decision due to the rain and we shot all 5 stages under the cover of the Livery Stable. We shot 5 different scenarios on the same targets. It's amazing how many different ways you can shoot 2 pistol, 2 rifle and 4 shotgun targets.

First we alternated double taps; shot 4-1-1-4; alternated single taps; shot 1st pistol 2-3 on rifle targets from near the left barrel, moved to the center window for 2-3 on the pistol targets, back to the left barrel for 2-3 twice with the rifle, then across the stage to the right barrel for the 4 shotgun kd's, last we started at the right barrel with the shotgun, moved to the left barrel and shot the rifle 3-4-3, then shot the pistols 3-4-3 on the rifle targets.

By shooting all 5 stages at the Livery we stayed mostly dry and had a great day. I think everyone was glad they came out to shoot. We were glad to welcome Sgt. Jasper back, he was shooting at Wartrace when I started in 2005 but stopped soon after. Now after a few years in the Air Force he is back with us. He had rifle problems and left after the 2nd stage, hopefully he'll have it straightened out by the mid-month match.

Randy Saint Eagle was the  Top Gun of the day (I like to write that once in a while), followed by Papa Dave, Frank Buckshot, Grey Horse, Reno Mustang, Gunbutcher, Sunflower Kid, Sheriff Frank Canton, Deadwood Miner and Jagged Rock rounded out the Top 10.

Doc Kay B May was the Ladies Top Gun followed by TN. Missy.

Fort Knox and Doc Kay B May shot the only "Clean" Matches.
