Hello Boys & Girls
Sorry you had to work today or just decided to sleep in because it was a good day for a match. Weather today should pretty much mirror what we will experience this weekend at Gathering on the Mattaponi. We finally wound up with 9 shooters today and with stages like we had, it could of been 5 or 6 shooters. Actually, the twist in the stages made for a very fun afternoon. Sadly, we only had one clean shooter and that honor goes to VA. Rifleman the one and only. Thanks guys for all the help.
PS – Speaking of this weekends Gathering on the Mattaponi, you can just bring your registration to the Double-C match with you and save a stamp.
See all of you this weekend.

Time to dust off your Wednesday ammunition and shoot up some targets again. Winter is on the way out and Wednesday matches are on again. The Cavalier Cowboys  invites you to come on out this Wednesday, 3/13/19, and have some fun. Gates open at 10 am for set up and first shot down range at high noon. Speaking of high, the temps for Wednesday is around 54 with 4 mph winds. Not to bad, not to bad at all. Hope to see you then.

Hello fellow Cowboy shooters

Sorry for the late scores but I have been having problems with Google groups. Hopefully it is fixed. It basically stayed about 45 all day from beginning to end but with no breeze, it felt a lot warmer, especially next to the fire barrel. Never rained but a light damp mist keep us under the canopy’s high and dry. We had 9 shooters shoot todays match and 4 of them shot clean. Those shooters were One Eyed Jane, Ham O’Royd, Smackwater and myself Major BS. I really want to salute the work ethics everyone showed to make this match a success.
Just a reminder, the Gunfight at the Double-C is just a few weeks away so please get your registrations in. Forms at www.cavaliercowboys.org

Thanks Again:

Hello Everyone

This Sunday is our regular first Sunday of the month match and this is also Super Bowl Sunday. When you wake up Sunday morning don’t pace around all day waiting for the game to start. Don’t sit aimlessly for hours staring at the TV and listening to sports casters make guess after guess as to what will happen. Instead, come on out and have some fun with us at the range. Weather forecast has Sunday back up into the 50’s. Super Bowl kickoff is not until 6:30. We start at 10:00 and are finished by 2:00 and tear down done by 2:30. That still gives you 4 hours  until game time. With 4 hours I can still take a 2 hour nap before the game starts. Hope you can make it. Stages written by me in a new style and attached

Thanks:

Well, we have been bitten by the winter bug. With 8″+ of snow still on the ground and the roads to the club still quite icy, the match for tomorrow is a NO go.
There will not be another Wednesday match until March unless we have a freak warm weather event.
Thanks a Bunch

The Cavalier Cowboys will be having their second Wednesday match this Wednesday, Dec.12. This will be our last Wednesday match until the winter passes and will resume again in March.

Hope you can make it

Hello fellow Cowboys and Cowgirls

It was a little cold today but without the wind blowing it was comfortable with the help of a pair of long johns . With the crowd we had today I just can’t understand why we didn’t have a single clean shooter but o” well, stranger things have happened. I would like to congratulate Cody as our 1st place shooter, BS, me in second place and Ripsaw coming in third overall. I’d also would like to thank Ripsaw for bringing his neighbor Gary to watch his first match and he got to shoot a couple of stages to boot. Thanks Gary for helping out. The results from today are attached.

Thanks All: MBSW

Hello Fellow Cowboy Shooters

Well what can I say but what a great day for a Cowboy get together. First two stages were a little nippy but by stage three most were out of their coats for the rest of the day. Cavalier had the honor of having two first time at Cavalier shooters, Tinpan McGurk and Lawman Mays and we also had the honor of having Yakima Jim shoot his first time ever Cowboy match. Despite me being there, we hope to see all of you again. Remember you are always welcome into the Cowboy family and the friendship we all shared with each other at todays match. If I could remember the spectators name that watched and hooked all day I would like to thank him also. Now for the results. Weather was just right for a good bowl of Chili after the match and rubbing our noses in it was Mr. Stogie again repeating the coveted title as this years Chili Champion. Congrads Stogie. Where else can you go and come in first and second at one match. We did manage to have two clean shooters, that being Sassy and me. Thanks you everyone for your work effort and just being you.

Time again for the Cavalier Cowboys first Sunday of the month match and also our 2nd. annual Chili Cook-off on Nov. 4th. Gates open at 8:30, safety briefing at 9:45 and first shot down range at 10:00. Saturday night is the end of Daylight Savings Time so don’t forget to set your clocks back.

Looking forward to some award winning chili and to some award winning cowboy shooting fun. Stages are attached and were written by Mr. Smackwater.

 

Sorry for the mess up on drawings for stages 4,5 & 6. The pistols are 1 through 5, I didn’t notice the mistake until I opened the attachment .

Hello everyone

What a nice day to shoot. A little breeze would of helped but it was still quite nice. We still had a good turnout with many at the Eastern Divisional but 20 shooters managed to make it to the match. With the mostly non traditional stages some fool put together, we still managed to have 3 clean shooters, Cockroach, Smackwater and Major BS Walker. I do hope everyone had fun today. That is the real reason we put ourselves through all of this. Stages attached.

Thanks for all the help
