With perfect weather conditions today the roll call was very disappointing, however a very enjoyable day was had by all that attended. Following the true spirit of the game congratulations goes to Lakota for being our clean match shooter, sure those shotgun targets were a little troublesome at times with only one barrel, weren't they ? Mortimer Shot very well and was the overall match winner, congratulations Mortimer. Shotgun Billy proved to be very elusive. match finaltt Main Match 04072019.pdf

actionsheriff.jpg (98772 bytes)Well, we are back to having perfect weather conditions, warm and sunny days after the good rains of the later part of this past week, 52 mms in total. Once again the Last Frontier hosted a good roll up of eager Cowboy Action Shooters. I had spent quite a bit of time this week setting up for those wanting some serious practice before they set off to the upcoming Queensland State Titles. I trust that all those going to the Titles received benefit from today's scenarios thus making my time not being wasted. Here's how the day ended up : Main Match 04222018.pdf

Thankyou to Chuck Wagon for your advises. An excellent day was had by all. Mortimer managed to pull off second place with Pearl-Starr hot on his heels. Best wishes and straight shooting to those fortunate enough to be able to shoot at the Queensland State Titles next weekend at Mareeba in north Queensland.

Firstly to all shooters heading off to the State Titles, Shoot well and have a safe journey. Tell them the Sheriff sent you.
Pictured is Karate Kid in action. Our shoot was a little different this time with a new target called "The Chisholm Swinger" some were a little put off with its swinging action of 20 swings at 15 yards, however names like Karate Kid, Grizzly James, Old Dude, Taw Jackson, Flintstone, Bad Al Junior, Minnie Ha Ha to name a few, took it in their stride and done very well.
The day was cool with a freshening breeze blowing made for a good shoot. Congratulations must go to Grizzly James for being the overall winner. New junior shooter Mari Jane shot for the first time and I must say her skills were impressive. Scores today are right here : Match Final Main Match 04242016.pdf

Well, who said it doesn't get any better ? The rain was a blessing 173 mm in total and now the range has been transformed into a carpet of green as the new grass emerges. Today we had a day of great stages and they were fast and well designed to test out the true avid Cowboy Action Shooter. An excellent test for those going to the Easter Shoot at Dalby, by the way my wish to all of you that are going a safe trip and good shooting.

Not enjoying your shooting ? May I suggest that you give "The Last Frontier" a go for a change, you will actually find that the enjoyment will come back into your shooting life and will leave you wondering why you didn't try Cowboy Action before. Shooting this way is as close as you can get to the Wild West short of a time machine. Yes, today's match was exciting and challenging but not exhausting for anyone.

I have very little to report other then to say "you should have been here", the weather was spectacular as was the five action packed stages. I guess my favorite stage was "The Luck Shot Saloon" well that's where I forgot to load my pistols. Thankyou Swampfox. I would like to wish all those representing us at the State Titles next week the very best of luck, shoot straight and remember the Spirit of the Game.

Today was a day very similar to that of the same time last year (read below). I wish to sincerely thank all those persons for their cards, phone calls and get well wishes and to those that visited me in the Noosa Hospital during my long three weeks stay after major surgery due to adhesions growing from my previous operation last year. Those that shot the five action packed stages today, Congratulations on a mighty fine effort. Pat Garrett was won by Swampfox followed by Wild Bill Fisher. As its too early for me to put the guns on...but it won't be long, seeing your enjoyment gave me such a great feeling. Now I can tell you, hospital wasn't like that.
