  1. We had a number of great nominations of some truly fabulous Classic Cowboys and Cowgirls. The Magnificent Seven reviewed all of them and determined that Asa Smith is our 2020 Classic Cowboy Shootist of the Year and Boss Shamrock is our 2020 Classic Cowgirl Shootist of the Year. We will recognize them both with buckles at the Classic Cowboy/Cowgirl Dinner at Winter Range in February 2021. Please congratulate them both for what they do for the Classic category. Hope to see you at the dinner at Winter Range. Dhd

  3. Our Classic Cowboy/Cowgirl Shootist of the Year nominations are still open, but the window is closing at the end of August. Here are the nominees we have so far. Classic Cowboy: Classic Cowgirl: Dantakerous Caney Creek Annie Morgan Daniles Pit Mule Asa Smith High Plains Hud Pony Soldier Boothill Bandit As you can see, while I am sure Caney Creek Annie is a great nominee for the Classic Cowgirl award, we could use a few more nominations in that category to consider. Give it some thought and put out some more names or second or third the ones you would like to see get the award.
  4. Lots of great thoughts for Classic Cowboys, but we need to hear about the Classic Cowgirls out there too. Help us identify and recognize those ladies who are shooting with the big guns and hammered shotguns and dressing in style.
  5. Nominations are now open. 2020 has been anything but normal, and this has thrown off a lot of things, including the nomination process for the Classic Cowboy/Cowgirl Shootist of the Year. But we are back on track now. Perhaps some of you saw the article in the recent Cowboy Chronicle concerning this award, which goes to someone who not only shoots Classic Cowboy/ Classic Cowgirl but promotes the category and exemplifies spirit and enthusiasm for Cowboy Action Shooting. We may not all be the fastest, but we look good, we shoot the big bullets, we rock the hammered shotgun, and we have a blast. As our most recent recipient noted about our category: "Even gunfighters need heroes." The Magnificent Seven select one man and one lady who are recognized and admired by their peers for the way they exemplify the Classic Cowboy category. They don't have to be the fastest; instead we are looking for those folks who inspire others to think about shooting the Classic category or at least to recognize what a cool category it is to shoot. There are plenty of Classic Cowboys and Cowgirls out there (but we want to see more); we are looking for the ones that stand out to you. So post your nominations for the Classic Cowboy or Classic Cowgirl that you think deserves being recognized as the Classic Cowboy/Cowgirl Shootist of the Year for 2020 and explain why so the Magnificent Seven will have enough information to make a judgment in case we aren't familiar with the shooter. Nominations will remain open until the end of August, but don't wait.
  6. In Central Texas we have been lucky to have county judges who are willing to consider the facts and grfant us approval to shoot provided that we follow some safety measures. Caldwell County allowed the Plum Creek Shooting Society and Blanco County just approved the Tejas Caballeros shoot.
  7. Artie: Glad to hear a full account as I was on the other end of the range and getting 3d and 4th hand reports. So glad you were just bruised. I thought we were going to have to call you "Four Toes." So happy to hear that now it is just Leadfoot Artie. It will be great to see you at Plum Creek on the 4th!
  8. Major Art:


    Cayenne Kay is not going to be able to attend but her husband Sixgun Seamus sent me some photos and a writeup about her. Since I plan to post that at the Buffa;lo Chip, I was thinking that maybe I should have something from you as well. Here is what Seamus sent me:


    Maybe you could give me something similar or maybe have a friend do it?

    Is there plans for a Classic Cowboy dinner during winter range?

    I am coming to WR for the first time this year, hoping to get together for dinner with the other CC's!


  10. Oops! I didn't get the memo. We are starting an hour later. So here is the correct start time: 8:30 ~ Range Opens 9:00 - 9:30 ~ Registration, Free Coffee, Juice, Pastries , Breakfast Tacos 9:45 ~ Safety Meeting (Mandatory) 10:00 ~ Hammers Down, (Inaugural Shoot Begins) I hope that you can make it.
  11. Actually, The range opens around 7:30 am. There will be free coffee, juice, breakfast tacos, etc. Safety meeting will be at 8:45 with hammers down at 9 am. Should be some good fun. The Mine Cart is back, the Saloon is back, and we have added the Jail for those reprobates that need it (Listening No Horse?). We also have the Outlaw Cabin, a first for Central Texas shooting, where we get to Go Downrange in shooting. Ought to be a hoot. Come on out this Saturday January 21 and help us christen this new venue.
  12. Hey Larson. I asked for Senior Classic Cowboy. If enough of us ask for that, will that be a recognized category? Ghost and I are long in the tooth, and I suspect we can scare up 4 or 10 others.
  13. Best wishes for a successful surgery and a swift recovery, Want to see him out there shooting again soon.
  14. I think it is a good idea for every annual to give the shooter something to remember the shoot by. But I wouldn't call it a "participation award " as that has some bad overtones in today's world. At Plum Creek we reserve the buckles or trophies for those who place in the top 5 or top 3 depending on the category and number of folks in the category. What we give away to all shooters I would not call it an award--we include them in the shooter's packet when they check in. We always provide the shooter with an identification pin with their name on it and the name and date of the shoot. We also have given out a coffee mug, a pen, a bag for empties with the name of the shoot on it, and other similar items with the view that someone who pays a fee to attend an annual should have something tangible to remember the shoot by even if they don't place high enough to win a buckle. I have a whole collection of the shooter identification pins from annuals that I keep around, and I use the bags and coffee cups and pens I have gotten from other shoots regularly. Every time I pick one up it recalls to me that fun I had there. Such gifts provide a longer term value in addition to the memories.
