The Cavalier Cowboys are a Cowboy Action Shooting Club based near Montpelier, Virginia. We are associated with the Cavalier Rifle & Pistol Club which is where we hold our matches. We shoot on the 1st Sunday and 2nd Wednesday of every month, with some exceptions. The Cavalier Cowboys are a SASS (Single Action Shooting Society) Affiliated Club, we are governed by and operate our matches under all SASS Rules.

You DO NOT have to be a member of either Cavalier Rifle & Pistol Club nor SASS to shoot with us, everyone is welcome to join us as our guests.

NEW Shooters are Welcome and Encouraged!!  If you have ever wondered how much fun it is too dress up like a cowboy and shoot 1800 era pistols, rifles and shotguns at steel targets then COME ON OUT and find out!! New Shooters need to have observed a full match (at Cavalier or elsewhere) before shooting their first match.

Thanks, Striker

Sunday Matches Comments Off on ???? 1st Sunday Match for September ????

Cowboys & Cowgirls,

For the month of September, our 1st Sunday match is the same weekend as the Virginia State Championship Match and a good many of our regular shooters will be going to the State match.

The Virginia State Match is a great match and we encourage everyone who can go to shoot and support that match!!!!

But, if you can not go to the State match….

The question I have is, are there enough cowboy shooters not going to the State match who would like to shoot on Sunday, September 3rd at Cavalier?

Please let us know asap, if you would like to shoot at Cavalier on Sunday September 3rd.

Cavalier Cowboys: IMPORTANT- SASS Scoring

Featured Posts Comments Off on Cavalier Cowboys: IMPORTANT- SASS Scoring

SASS has just announced that effective immediately all SASS Sanctioned Cowboy Action Shooting matches are to be scored using Total Time.

You can read the announcement below from SASS.

A “sanctioned” match is when there is a contract between SASS and the match organizers that defines how the match will be conducted. This includes state matches, state blackpowder matches, regional matches, divisional matches and etc..

Previously SASS directed that regional and above matches use Rank Points for scoring and matches at the state level and below could use either Rank Points or Total Time for scoring.

The Cavalier Cowboys have always used Rank Points, specifically because that was the scoring system used at the major SASS matches.

Therefore, we will continue with our practice of using the scoring system used by SASS at it’s major matches and we will switch to Total Time scoring, effective immediately.

Safe Travels,

Striker

———- Forwarded message ———-

Dear SASS Match Directors, Event Organizers, RO Committee, and Affiliated Club Contacts:
 
After careful consideration and evaluation of the countless requests and movements regarding scoring methods for Cowboy Action Shooting™, the SASS Board of Directors do hereby decree that effective immediately, all SASS Sanctioned Cowboy Action Shooting™ matches are to be scored using Total Time.Please consider this your notice to that effect and make immediate changes to your match planning to accommodate the change.
 
SASS Sanctioned Cowboy Action Shooting™ matches will no longer be allowed to use any scoring method other than Total Time. Updated contracts will be issued in the coming weeks to reflect the change.
 
We feel strongly that this monumental change will garner great support and appreciation from our valued members.
 
Respectfully,
Misty

As usual, we will be holding our Cowboy Social after the match and everyone is invited to stay and enjoy some cowboy fellowship. Since it is the 4th of July weekend, the Cavalier Cowboys will be cooking up some hot dogs along with all of the fixings as part of our Cowboy Social. Everyone is invited to bring along your favorite beverages and snacks.

Most of you have seen this already on the Mattaponi Sundowners email but wanted to address it here again:

In regards to the “Cool Rags” aka “Cooling Towels”, the absorbent rags/towels that you wet with water / ice and place on your head / neck to help keep cool in hot weather.
Everyone is welcome to use these type of items at our matches but….
Please DO NOT dunk the towels into the ice water, Please DO NOT wring the towels out into the ice water, etc. etc..
It is very unsanitary and a health issue to do so because people are drinking from water bottles that are in the ice water.
