Smoke On The Mattaponi

Cowboy Action Comments Off on Smoke On The Mattaponi

Well, it’s that time again to not blow smoke but to shoot some smoke.  “Smoke On The Mattaponi”, the Virginia State Black Powder match will be held on June 23, 2018.  We plan a fun filled day of shooting a little black powder, sitting around the chuck wagon eating some good vittles and swapping stories. Prairie City Slim will be writing the stages for the match so we know that they will be challenging but fun.

 

Plans are to set up the range for the match the day before the match.  Gates will open at 0800, mandatory safety meeting at 0930 and shooting starts at 1000.  We will shoot 6 fun filled stages without a break then have lunch. As soon as the match is over we plan a hardy lunch that is included in your match fee and then range take down.  Once the range take down is finished we will have the awards ceremony.

 

All established categories are recognized but you must register for the match and your category before the registration deadline of June 8, 2018.  You can still attend and shoot the match after that date but you will have to shoot in an established category in order to be eligible for an award.  Attached is an application for the “Smoke On The Mattaponi” match.  Please complete and return to Whiskey Mae as soon as possible.  We need everyone’s help in completing this and returning it as soon as possible so we can get an accurate head count for the lunch.  We want enough food but of course we don’t want to come up short or have a lot of left overs.

 

SASS requires that all shooters for this match must be a current SASS member in good standing.  Please make sure that your SASS alias is spelled correctly including that your SASS badge number is correct.  All shooters names must be submitted to SASS for approval prior to the match.

We are also accepting sponsorships for this match.

 

If you are interested in sponsoring a stage or any part of this match it will greatly appreciated.  We will be working hard for great sponsorship again this year.

 

We hope to see y’all at the match.

Gathering On The Mattaponi

Cowboy Action Comments Off on Gathering On The Mattaponi

Howdy

Just a few more days until the “Gathering On The Mattaponi”. There are still openings for any last minute shooters.  It is too late to get a badge and you will have to register in the “Cowboy” category, but you can still enjoy 12 stages of shooting and hang out with your cowboy and cowgirl friends. 

The round count for the match is: 120 rifle, 120 pistol, and 41 shotgun.  Of course you may want a few more than that for the occasional jacked out rifle round or the missed shotgun target.  The round count for the “Wildbunch” match is: 8 rifle, 49 pistol and 10 shotgun.

One Eyed Rooster will be there on Saturday with 38, 357, 45LC and 45 ACP brass for sale.  He will also have some bags of 7 ½ and 8 shot for sale at $30 per bag.  This is new shot NOT reclaimed.  Regret Scovefield has a couple of boxes of .358 105 grain TCFP coated bullets for sale. Bullets will be sold as first come first get.

We will begin set up Friday at 1000 so the gates will be open at that time for campers to come in and get set up.  On Saturday morning the gates will open at 0730, safety meeting at 0930 and start shooting at 1000.  Please arrive early enough to get your equipment unpacked and check in for registration.

Attached is the schedule for the weekend.  The weather for the weekend is looking really good at this time.  We are keeping our fingers crossed that it holds out for the match.  We will adjust for the weather as needed.

Please travel safely!!  Looking forward to seeing you all.

Hello Shooters!!

Our next Rimfire Steel Match is scheduled for this WED, 07 MAR.  I’m watching the weather.  Right now Weather Bug says it will be low 40s, windy, and possible showers.  So we will hold the match unless the weather changes dramatically.  Dress warmly and bring rain gear  (that way it won’t rain!).

Refer to http://www.westpointgunclub.com/shooting-programs/rimfire-steel/ for a description of these matches and equipment requirements. In addition, the Open class will be available. In addition to that, the Cowboy Class will allow two Single-Action revolvers to be fired “gunfighter style” (one in each hand).
