Picture 019.jpg (89923 bytes)Looking for your input : I thought maybe whilst this hot weather is around maybe we should start shooting at 8 am instead of 9 am. Please email me with your thoughts at sheriff@lastfrontier.com.au  
Adios, Sheriff of Tinstone.


Weather conditions today was in reverse to that of the extreme temperatures that we endured the previous shoot. Intermittent showers were also part of the theme. Once again there were stories to tell after it was all over....some just shook there heads in disbelief and said with a smile, "Well there is always next time". FrontierExpress2010.jpg (104931 bytes)I guess the highlight of the day was getting the gold off the Frontier Express freight train.... We play again on the 5th.February,2012, off course bang on 9am. For those requiring paperwork on to be done on shoot days please be here at no later then 8am otherwise it cannot be done until after lunch. You may check the scores here 22012012.pdf

A special thanks to the helpers and donators, Lakota fastest Indian with a brush, Al Swearegen and M.J.for their kind contributions, Lester Moore and Minnie Ha Ha and Timothy in the restoration work.

25th January,2009.
Today was quite a warm but very fine day. The shoot went without a hitch a few went home scratching there heads at where a couple of their shots went. But they know they missed the mark but WHY  ????. SMILE.... Even Alabama Slama's 45.70 works again now that one of shooters found the cause of why it was jamming on the first round... the problem was soon fixed once the jammed round was freed...Ugly Al had his fair share of problems until Gringo wised him up...Thankyou Gringo.
Due to technical problems I only have the top nine place getters for today. Winner of the Pat Garrett was Bad Al Zima. Runner up was Alabama Slama.
Over all winner of the five stages was Bad Al Zima followed by Ugly Al, Larramie Lloyd, No Pony, Johnson, Alabama Slama, Gringo, Lester Moore, and One Armed Bill Wilson who went home sick.Get Well soon Bill.
See you all next month on the 1st February,2009.

What an excellent day for our first shoot in 2009. The weather was cool and it only reached 28 degrees, the cloud was plentiful and the breezes were just what was needed to make for a wonderful day of Cowboy Action Shooting.
To all of you that attended congratulations and thankyou for your support from both Minnie Ha Ha and myself the Sheriff of Tinstone. Five stages were shot including three stages of Pat Garrett. The winners of the Pat Garrett were : Cpt J C Jackson and Bad Al Zima in second place.

The Last Frontier was provided with a day of excellent warm weather. A great bunch of cowboys and cowgirls turned up to test themselves against the challenging scenarios, and at the end of the day everyone was a winner and went home in high spirits ready to do it all again next weekend. A special thanks to Little Joe and Cpt.J.C.Jackson for manually configuring the days scores for until we get a new scoring computer thats the way it will be. R.I.P. old computer. Next Shoot February 3rd.

Sunday 6th January,2008.
Another very happy and fun day at The Last Frontier, the weather was a touch on the warm side but the five stages set up by Minnie Ha Ha were all over by noon. Great shoot Minnie Ha Ha. A couple of the well known shooters had their share of the jitters but good sportsmanship was a



Sunday January 28th 2007.
It was great to see another good attendance, the weather was warm but that's what we can expect for a mid summer shoot, however, that always present Last Frontier cooling breeze eased the situation some what. My Father once told me " Son remember whatever you do. Do it your best". Some people think I am disciplined, it is not discipline - it is devotion. There is a great difference and I guess that is why we have such an excellent shooting venue called "The Last Frontier." Today's shoot was an example of how great the stages will be at next weeks "Cowgirl 07". It will be fantastic to see more devoted shooters take part.
3rd February:
Saturday morning Long Range Rifle and Cowboy/Cowgirl Silhouette, Cowboy/Cowgirl Clays and Australia' s first Frontier Swap Meet. 
Saturday afternoon stages 1 to 5 of the main match. 
Saturday Night Talent Quest. 
4th February: Sunday morning stages 6 to 10.Click on the link to nominate. "The Cowgirl 07" Its not too late to Nominate.
 Lets get rid of the stupid rumor that's getting spread.
"The Cowgirl 07" is not a dress up as a Cowgirl Shoot. Get together with the Real Cowboys/Cowgirls and come and have a great weekend of Cowboy Action at The Last Frontier.

January 2006.New Years day was a terrific day to start the year with 5 challenging stages of Cowboy Action at The Last Frontier. A very warm welcome to visitors Alan and Russell from Toogum and Gympie and Sam from Nebraska U.S.A. 
Stage# 1 "Life Sure Can Be Cruel" It all started when one evening when you were only 12 years old, you and your folks had just sat down to supper when it all happened. The dog started to bark, that familiar warning, trouble was comin'. Your father opened the door to see a band of yahoo's lookin to do no good. As he closed the door a shot rang out and he fell to the floor. He yells "Get the guns", so your mother grabs all the guns and ammo in the house.......and the rest is history.
Well all I can say is to those that didn't turn up to The Last Frontier, you missed another great day of Cowboy Action. The weather was very kind, slightly overcast and much cooler then the previous days.

4.Nebraska Dude
5.Minnie Ha Ha
