Hello Boys & Girls

What a great weekend to shoot a match. Five minutes of drizzle was the only drawback from an almost perfect weekend. I do hope everyone enjoyed themselves. Thanks to you, the Gunfight was totally worth all the hard work it took to have this event. You could not possibly have a more dedicated, harder working and fun loving group of cowpokes than the group that were here this weekend. All of you deserve a standing ovation.

Here are the results attached and please remember to visit us next year.

All my best:

Hello Everyone

This Sunday, April 1, 2018 the Cavalier Cowboys will be shooting their regular monthly match. Actually, not so regular because it is Easter. I do have enough confirmed attendance to still have a nice turnout. To all that can’t be with us have a happy Easter. I will miss a target for you in your absence. Gates open at 8:30, safety meeting at 9:45 and start shooting at 10:00. Stages are not attached because back by popular demand, this will be our on site design match where six lucky shooters will design a stage. The starting line for Sunday is “I Shot the Easter Bunny”

To all of my cowboy family
Have a great Easter Holiday

1st Sunday Match – February 4th, 2018

Sunday Matches Comments Off on 1st Sunday Match – February 4th, 2018

Cowboys & Cowgirls,

We have made the decision to cancel our 1st Sunday match for February 4th, 2018.

Although it has improved slightly from yesterday’s forecast, the current hourly weather forecast calls for rain and a “feels like” temperatures in the 30’s throughout our match time window. We can handle the rain and we can handle the cold but when you combine them and throw in a steady wind all day, it just isn’t fun weather too shoot in.

By the time I get to shoot again, I will need someone to mentor me 🙁

Stay warm and enjoy the football game on Sunday!!

1st Sunday Match – January 7th, 2018

Sunday Matches Comments Off on 1st Sunday Match – January 7th, 2018

Cowboys & Cowgirls,

Happy New Year to all our Cowboy Family and Friends!!!!

In terms of bad weather, my normal approach is to send out the match announcement on Monday saying that we are planning on having a match but will send out am update on Friday with the final call. I use this approach because the weather forecast 7 days out are very unreliable.

However, the current hourly weather forecast for Sunday calls for 18 degrees with a feels like of 13 degrees for our 10:00 am start time.

This forecast is so far below what I consider minimum acceptable shooting, that I am taking a different approach.

Assume that the Sunday, January 7th match is cancelled.

And if some weather miracle occurs between now and then, we will send out an update on Friday that the match is back on.

Let’s hope this isn’t the start of a bad trend for 2018 cowboy shooting……

Safe Travels,

Striker

Cavalier Cowboys Match Results 12/03/17

What a nice day for a cowboy shoot. A little cold at the start but it warmed up quickly. Thanks to everyone that helped  do the chores to make this match happen.You know who you are.We were fortunate to have with us today, three first time shooters. Welcome to the cowboy family, Dr. Tree, Fury Pete and Stumpy Gummer. You all did quite well for a first match. It was also nice to shoot with Big Iron Padnock again before he goes back to Texas. Unfortunately, we only had two clean shooters, and those two lucky gentlemen were Potter County Kid and Prairie City Slim. Our top overall shooter was Cody Maverick himself. We also had a chili cook-off and social afterword’s and the winner of the Cavalier Cowboys Chili Cook-off was none other than Mr. Stogie.

Pre-Match Announcement for our Sunday Dec. 3rd Match

Sunday Matches Comments Off on Pre-Match Announcement for our Sunday Dec. 3rd Match

Hi everyone!

I am happy to say that everyone is excited about our social. We have at least three cowboys cooking chili, and we will have cornbread and fixins, as well, maybe even some hot dogs for the chili dog lovers. We always have plenty of food,  so even if you aren’t able to bring something,  please join us. If you are looking for something to bring,  some people like crackers in their chili, or cheese and crackers are always good. Cookies or a little something sweet is usually a crowd pleaser.  The company is far more important than the food.  I am looking forward to seeing all of you!

Whiskey Mae


Cowboys & Cowgirls,

We will be sending out our standard match announcement and stages on Monday but wanted to get some info out to you ahead of that email.

As you know we always have a Cowboy Social after the match, where everyone brings their favorite snacks and drinks and we share these items and enjoy our cowboy family fellowship.

Well for this coming match on Dec 3rd., Whiskey Mae has issued a friendly challenge, as follows from her:

——–
“Howdy, and I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I am sure thankful for all my cowboy friends.

How do y’all feel about chili and fixins for our December cowboy social? I know Stogie will make some chili,  send I think there are some others that would bring theirs, too. I will bring some cornbread, onions,  shredded cheese and corn chips.  We could have a friendly cowboy chili cook off.

Thoughts?

Thanks all.
Whiskey Mae
whiskeymae1@gmail.com”
———-

So, are there any other cowboys willing to except this challenge?

If there are, please contact Whiskey Mae directly, her email is above and coordinate this competition.

We have electricity available on the range, so slow cookers are a option for your chili and we have the gas grill with a side burner as another.

And regardless of  if your entering the cook off or not, everyone is invited to help judge the winners.

So, bring along your favorite drink, favorite snacks, and join us after the match for our Cowboy Social.

Safe Travels,

Striker
