Nothing that I can say will describe today's match other then it was interestingly enjoyable, well, the weather, it was cold with that westerly wind that was ever so lazy, it didn't bother to go around you. Thankyou to those that braved the cold conditions to participate, the lunch served by Minnie Ha Ha was well worth staying for. The scores are right here : Match Final Main Match 06052016.pdf

It was said by many that today's events were challenging but at the same time very entertaining. The red bull was all bluff and certainly had control until Jack of Hearts put a stop to him with five well placed shots. Winners of the duel were Johnson and Mungo, well that's another story, I guess you needed to be there to witness the situation. Now the blue train.... well Mortimer and Mungo certainly made very fast work on it even though Johnson had it fully loaded. Maybe you should come along next Sunday 5th. July and check out the action.

June 7th. 2015.
A great day for shooting our numbers were down today due it being the long weekend and larger shoots being on at other venues. However I should have mentioned last month shooters are asked to keep in mind their bullet velocities due to the fact that several targets have been damaged by excess loads. Range approvals are for lead projectiles only with the long range targets speeds to no greater then 1400 feet per second. Cowboy Action targets lead projectiles only pistol speeds to 850 feet per second with lever action lead projectiles only speeds  to 1000 feet per second. Thankyou, in keeping to this will allow our targets to remain safe for a longer period.

Minnie Ha Ha surprised us today with a wonderful lunch with a difference....venison, vegetables and rice, thankyou Minnie Ha Ha.

"Ah,June Last Frontier style." was the comment from one of our visiting shooters today "Didn't know there was so much fun being had here, I should have been here sooner. Why didn't someone tell me how good this place was?" Well I guess its up to all of us to spread the word and to continually invite other shooters and likewise persons to visit and experience for themselves what most of us take for granted here at the Last Frontier. Very pleasant conditions with clear skies after a week with 61 mm of rain provided for an excellent day of Cowboy Action. A few stayed behind after lunch and played Cowboy Clays, congratulations One Armed Bill Wilson on your achievement in smokin' those clays. A reminder that yearly Memberships are now due with no increase in the renewal fee from that of previous years. For your Membership Renewal form Click on this pdf file.Renewal2009.pdf

Well the day spoke for itself..a perfect day with fair dinkcum Cowboy Action at its best. Several stages required the use of the bigger rifles if you remembered to bring them along, if not the smaller rifles saved the scenario. Stage One at the Fort proved to be a bit of a challenge with some shooting the hostages, opps... now that wasn't the way to go was it....Smile. Numbers were down today due to another shoot that was on this weekend ....well, so rumors have it. To find todays scores click on this pdf file.070609.pdf

First of all I would like to send a special thank you to all cowboys/cowgirls who took the time to visit me in the Noosa Hospital and to all that sent me their best wishes for a speedy recovery.
