Month: March 2020

2nd Wednesday — March 11th, 2020

Hello Everyone
What a lovely day to shoot a match. We had nine shooters enjoying the great weather but unfortunately we couldn’t muster up one clean shooter. I guess no one is used to shooting yet without shivering a little. A special shout out to Black Jack Bill who shot with us today and also a big thanks to Mrs. Dude who kept score.
Thanks Yawl for all the help:

Covid-19 and the Cavalier Cowboys

The next Cavalier Cowboys Match will be on Sunday, June 7th, 2020.  Details on how our matches will operator under Social Distancing Rules will be communicated by email in the very near future.

Hello Cowboys and Cowgirls
The Cavalier Rifle and Pistol Club board of directors has approved the reopening of group matches starting on Saturday May 23. We will have to abide by social distancing rules and no more than 10 on a posse. Wearing of face protection is recommended but not required except for officers, TO’s who will need to be closer than 6 feet. I know everyone will do their part to have a safe and healthy match. Looking forward to throwing some lead down range with you all again.

Today I received an email from the Cavalier Rifle and Pistol Club which reads;
In light of strong recommendations from the CDC and the President, the Cavalier Rifle and Pistol Club Board of Directors has voted to postpone all scheduled matches and meetings at Cavalier until further notice.  The Cavalier range remains open for individual members.
The Rivanna Shooting Club in Charlottesville has also enacted the same measures at their club. This means that the Cavalier Cowboys monthly and the Gunfight at the Double-C are a no go at this time. I will wait a month or so to see how we can reschedule for this year. If for some reason this doesn’t work out  then a  full refund or prepay for next years match will be done by your request. This is very disturbing news but also a no brainer because my friends health is far more important than a shooting match.
Your Friend and Pard
