A nice cool day for yet another great Cowboy Action Shoot and yes the Mifflin Kid left his holster rig at home yet again, the neighbor said that his mules and buckboard was a leavin with out him so he was in a gosh darn hurry. Some how the Mifflin Kid managed to shoot a clean match even with using the stage props for holsters, wow and congratulations Kid. Lead Slinger Leroy took the over all win with Dodge Bill running him down for second place. Just a reminder that there is only one shoot left at North Mountain on 10/23/2016 and one left at Mainville (weather pending) on 11/13/2016.
The Wild Bunch Match that dodge bill was putting together has been cancelled for the month of October.
It was another great day for our monthly buffalo shoot. Our turnout today was a little light due to a plate match being held at another club. Next month will be our last match for the year and at the end of the match we will be presenting the yearly Buffalo Rifle Trophy to the lucky winner. It was great to see Shawn at the match today as well as Dusty Ed son Eddie Jr. let's try and make our last match a great one with a good turn out. We would like to thank everyone for taking the time out and making this as always a great day at the range. Until next month be safe and God Bless.
We had two clean match shooters, congratulations goes out to Rushtown Kid and Mifflin Kid for shooting a clean match. Some say they were making plans with the score keeper for a free dinner at Bonanza Steak House. Beaver Run Kid took the over all win with Quick whit Bigguns (his youngen) coming in second just a few seconds short of whoopen his butt. Then 3rd thru 7th was also a very close for those cowboys to rustle it out.
SPECIAL NOTE ; Dodge bill is putting together a Wild Bunch shoot for on a Saturday. The only difference with the shooten irons from standard Cowboy Action is that you replace both six shooters with a 40 or 45 cal. simi auto. Please contact Dodge Bill at 570-690-3932 or firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions or if you will attend.
Help is needed in the kitchen on Saturday August 27th and Sunday August 28th. Please call Denny at 570-951-7105.
Buffalo Scores are now posted for August once again would like to Thank everyone for coming out on this nice warn day. We had some nice scores today with Dusty Ed shooting a high of 38 on the Buffalo. We also had two shoot off's on the Pistol and Lever action rifles with Dale winning the pistol and Gene the lever action nice shooting everyone. Please remember our September shoot will be one week later the correct date is posted on the web. Looking forward to seeing everyone next month. We only have two shoots left for this year. So let's try and make both of them to be a great turnout. The yearly scores are pretty close for the Buffalo Rifle Trophy. Again Thanks for making this a fun shoot
It was a very humid day for the shoot and Beaver Run Kid took the over all win. No clean match shooters this time all though The Mifflin Kid only had one miss and some stated that it was because he shoot thru the target hanger hole with out hitting any metal. If you ask him he will swear that is what he was aiming for, yeah okay. Dodge Bill set up a simple yet complicated stage where all the shooters except for three got procedures just because of a double tap on one target. See ya all next month.

Again Dodge Bill wrote up some really fun stages reversing the shooten irons and that messed up some of the best of um. There had to be at least 20 procedures due to shooting the stage out of order, wow to many names to make mention and I am sure it was all the shooten irons fault ! Congratulations to Sidewinder Seth for winning in his class and I bet ya can't guess how many shooters was in his class !
