  1. We have our winners! The Magnificent Seven pondered long and hard on this (mostly long). But our Classic Cowboy/Cowgirl Shootists of the Year for 2019 are Stirrup Trouble and Mattie Mahala West. Congratulations to the winners and to those who were nominated. All of them are special, but these folks stood out for a number of reasons. Come celebrate with us at the Classic Cowboy dinner at Winter Range when we award them their buckles.
  2. I have had two more nominations for Classic Cowgirl Shootist of the Year: Lucinda Teacup from Texas and Pinky Jo from Oklahoma. Those who know them chime in.
  3. Thanks Grizzly. Brother King has moved on to other shooting sports, and those on the Magnificent Seven are not eligible. Our thought on the Magnificent Seven is that just being a part of that is recognition enough.
  4. That is true--you can only win once. We want to give others a chance to be recognized for their good representation of the Classic Cowboy/Cowgirl category. Sorry it took me awhile to get this answered.
  5. Happy to see so many enthusiastic nominations. I haven't had the pleasure of shooting with Stirrup Trouble but I have been beaten many times by You Bet. Both sound like strong candidates, and the nominations are still open. Would like to see some nominations for Classic Cowgirl as well. Thanks.

Come celebrate with us at the Classic Cowboy dinner at Winter Range when we award them their buckles. It is that time of year again when the Magnificent Seven solicit nominations for the classic Cowboy and Cowgirl Shootist of the Year. This award recognizes someone who shoots the Classic Cowboy/Cowgirl category and embodies the spirit of the SASS classic cowboy/cowgirl by being enthusiastic about the sport and the category, encouraging and helping others to explore this sport and this category, and just generally being a great person to be around and shoot with. We have had some great past winners of this award, and we look for nominations of folks who are just as worthy for this year. Our past winners were: 2010: T-Bone Dooley 2011: Lefty Henderson- Shotglass 2012: RJ Law-Bella Spencer 2013: Big 6 Henderson- Hot Tamale 2014: GW Ryder- Squawty Bawdy 2015: Doc Baker- Serenity 2016: Tonic Kid- Marie Laveau 2017: Chilipepper Kid-Black Hills Barb 2018: Major Art Tillery-Cayenne Kay We hope to have our selection done by Comin' At Cha and will make the award at Winter Range in February 2020. Looking forward to your nominations.
  7. I have at least one of everything and wear them all at one point or another. My favorite pair are step through shotgun chaps (I swear I shoot better in those) but they are a hassle to put on. Chinks are so easy to don, but they are really late in the cowboy era and don't meet authenticity standards when you are facing costume contest judges and going for the original Classic Cowboy look. Batwings are generally heavier and, being in Texas where it is pretty warm most of the year, don't get worn as much. If I was shooting in cooler country, it would be shotgun chaps and batwings for me.
  8. Great shooting T-Bone. Hard to keep up with someone like you. Continue to uphold the Classic Cowboy tradition. See you at Comin' At Cha.
  9. Congratulations to Plum Creek Shooting Society's very own Two Spurs!
  10. 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?

  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Best wishes for a successful surgery and a swift recovery, Want to see him out there shooting again soon.
  15. 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.
  16. Planning to get my application in the mail today. Great place to shoot and great people. Glad they are stepping up to help the TSRA political action committee, especially with the legislative session coming up.
