It was a nice turn out and a great day weather wise for the Cowboy shoot. There was one shooter that went home with another clean match and congratulation to Bull Bigguns for a clean match. Again the Beaver Run Kid took the over all win with the Keller Hollow Kid coming in second, great shooten Kid, both of you. Lead Slinger Leroy finished third with all top three winning in their class and great over all final time to end the day.

A rifle was found at the club. If you believe you are the owner, please contact Denny with a good description and he will see that it is returned.
It was another fine day for the May Buffalo shoot with the weather holding out until the match was over we had some really great scores today, Rod Bardo shot an 8 out of ten on the Pistol caliber Rifle and a Perfect 10 on the lever action rifle. Nice shooting Rod on to the Buffalo rifle had nice scores on the first time using five bullets per stage and on the money shoot. We had Dusty Ed coming in first with a second place and three tied for third. All the scores are listed on the monthly score sheet.
The committee would like to thank everyone that made it out to this month and welcome our two new shooters Marty Leiby and John Nevel . Looking forward to our June shoot if you know anyone that would like to come out bring than on out for a great time at the range. Hope everyone has a safe and Happy Memorial Day and would to Thanks all our Veterans for their Service to Our Country and God Bless America and Travel Safe.
The Handgun Program scheduled for June has filled up quickly. Another class has been scheduled for July 16th.
A Handgun Usage, Safety and General Knowledge Program has been scheduled for June 11th. This year the class has been condensed into a single day format.
There is a correction on the April 2016 Buffalo Shoot. The winner for the Big Bore is John Seniw, I gave the high score to Joe Catone where it should have been John S. Sorry Joe maybe it’s a sign that you will win one of the matches in the near future. The points all correct just assign the Winning score to the wrong line on the score sheet.
We would like to thank everyone for coming out today for our first buffalo shoot for the year 2016. We could not have asked for a better day for the weather with the sun and no wind it made it a perfect day for our first shoot. Just as a reminder starting next month we will be now shooting five rounds per target. The money shoot will stay the same 1 fouling shot with five shots to follow. . Hope everyone enjoyed the new targets that Ed made over the winter. I think it gave everyone more of a challenge expectedly the one at 300 yards. We had two of our shooters hit it Dusty Ed and Rod so better luck next month maybe we can paint it black to see if we can have more hits. Looking forward to seeing everyone next month including some new shooters that could not make it this month but will be out in May to join in the fun and camaraderie
A Steel shoot has been scheduled for Saturday April 16th at 4:00PM. This is an effort to make up for the cancelled shoot earlier in the month as well as to try something a little different.
Due to poor weather the April 10th Cowboy Action Shoot has been cancelled.
The Steel shoot tomorrow has been cancelled due to wind and temperatures.
Just a reminder that Saturday April 2nd is the annual dues paying and work day at the club. Things kick off at 9AM. All ranges will be closed for the entire day.
We would like to welcome everyone to our first Buffalo Match on the 16th of April, 2016. We have a few changes this year. First the polls for the running buffalo were redesign by Dusty Ed over the winter this will make set-up and break down allot easier and faster.
Second you will see new small plates with an additional plate at 300 yards while still using Mr. Pig it will remain one point while the new small target will be two points same as the others so now a perfect score will be 40 instead of 36. Again I would like to Thank Mr. Ed for taking the time to work on this project over the winter months.
In short looking forward to a great year and seeing everyone on the 16th of April 2016. If you can try and spread the word around to help grow our monthly shoots that would be great .I know we have one or two new shooters for the year again let's try and get it up to 20 plus per month
To all our shooters have a Safe and Happy Easter
Jimmy D., Joey C. and Dusty Ed.
The April Practical Handgun match will be a revolver/pocket pistol friendly match. Magazines will be limited to 6 rounds per mag on all stages with up to 2 mag changes (18 rounds) possible per stage. Bring speed loaders or extra mags as needed. Provisions will be made for 5 shot firearms if needed.
Foul weather keep some of the Cowboys hiding back at their ranch but we had a good match any way. Mifflin Kid was doing fantastic until the last stage. Then with his Irons slingen lead didn't hit the right targets for some reason. Guess Dodge Bill changed up the scenario a little to much but not enough to stop Lead Slinger Leroy with a over all win. You would never guess it but Rushtown Kid Got a new Buck Board, Mules and cleaned the winters rust of his irons and finished with yet another clean match. Rumor has it that he gave his old mule "Nelly" to the score keeper. Congratulations Rushtown Kid for another clean match.
The 2016 schedule has been filled out for our Steel shoot with the first shoot taking place on April 3rd! We have elected to discontinue to shotgun and carbine classes this season, which effectively makes it a pistol only event. We will continue scoring Open, Limited and Limited 8 separately.
Please be advised there is no Steel shoot this month contrary to what you may have read in the newspaper. We are sorry for any confusion on the matter. Right now we are looking to run the first shoot in April. Once everything is set in stone the schedule will be posted.
