Firstly a special thankyou must go to Sundance Kid for his sincere efforts last Sunday with him helping Minnie Ha Ha and myself rebuild the Shady Ladies Facade that was damaged by the cyclone. No shoot was held that day due to flooding in certain areas.
Congratulations goes to Chisholm, First place in Pistol Metallic Silhouette with Stoney Bill coming in at second place. Silhouettes are positioned out to 200 metres. Today's Cowboy Action shoot was a good one as they all are here at the Last Frontier, it is a shame that so many failed once again to show up considering the efforts that are exerted before every shoot to make sure that everyone has the best day of shooting possible. A very important note to remember here is that " You cannot hug a memory. " You will find the scores right here : Match Final Main Match 03012015.pdf


Sunday 23rd.March,2014. Firstly thankyou to those that attended the working bee yesterday, the frame is now up and awaiting the next stage of its development. The shoot today was impressive with Mungo taking out first place hotly contested by Sundance Kid and Mortimer. A great fun day with plenty of laughs and mighty fine shooting was the order of the day, weather was good but we are now in serious drought conditions with water diminishing fast and the feeding of stock becoming a very costly exercise for all involved, some members have already started putting down the weaker animals. "This is no easy task no matter how tough you are" one said to me today. You will find the scores right here : Match Final 03232014.pdf

My favorite stage today was "The Train".... I guess that will teach me not to forget to shoot my rifle...
See you next shoot 5th.April, I know you could do with some practice for the Dalby Easter shoot.

26th March,2006."Saving Jacks Ass" another fantastic5 stages produced and presented by our new shooter Jack the Blade Slade. And what a finale for Jack's month of scenarios plus the weather was a cool 28 degrees and the skies were blue as can be and not a cloud to be seen. 
The Story : Jack Slade was hanged by vigilantes in Virginia City, Montana, on March 10,1864.Stage 4 required some deadly accurate rifle shooting to save Jacks Ass. "....you raced from the Jail House door to where your rifle was staged in front of the gallows, picked it up and immediately took out the five targets before placing a deadly accurate shot to cut the rope above the noose to set Jack free.10 seconds bonus was awarded if you cut the rope.  
After lunch twelve shooters tried out the new simulated game clay target range as cowboy clays. Greg Manning with his side by side short barrel coach gun won the match.

5th March,2006. Jack the Blade Slade day was another top shoot. A special thanks to Jack for his mighty fine efforts instage.jpg (123873 bytes) producing five fabulous stages. Pictured is Stage 3 as seen by the shooter once he was seated on the Mortuary Wagon. The stage was called "On the Wagon" and to start the timer the shooter had to yell "The Stage Coach is running late". The story for the scenario went like this : "By 1859 Jack Slade had become a stage driver & was a superintendent of the central overland stage line through some of the most lawless and dangerous stretches of the route in Nebraska,Colorado and Wyoming.In 1860 Slade supervised the construction of almost 200 relay stations for the Pony Express."
