  1. Don J: After many long hours (read that as 'years') of "discussion," the Milan Rifle Club board agreed to the installation of security cameras. The main dissenting point was that it would make the members feel as if "big brother" was watching them, and would drive them away from rejoining. After a couple of reported incidents of dangerous behavior, and some obvious damage to facilities, the board finally had had enough, and overruled the few remaining objectors. Since the installation, no unexplained/unresolved incidents have been reported and shortly after the installation, club memb
  2. Maddog - did your Pinto also have the just-a-bit-too-short auto-trans cooler lines that were designed to rest the inside of a 90 degree bend right against the point of a trans-pan bolt head so they would wear through at the most inopportune time? Sandy's Pinto wagon did, left her stranded just off John Deere road with a sick kid and no phone. If the lines had been one inch longer, it never would have happened...the Ford bean counters won that one for sure, probably saved 1 cent per car. Fortunately, we made it - without incident - all the way back to Rock Island with it chained up behind t
  3. My son, Colonel Kit Coyote...anyone remember the source of the alias?
  4. Finally! The photo really I wanted to include back in Post #5 - found the thumb drive lurking in the bottom of my travel bag! Also, adding a photo of Bookworm Sandy, who passed away a few years ago.

  6. My diploma reads "Bachelor of Science in Education in Geography." That meant that I would spend the first eight years of my career teaching only literature, grammar, spelling, and anything else that was covered by my minor in English. The rules were such that both the major and minor fields were covered by the "in Education" part. Of course, I taught a number of other subjects, but had to have more than 1/2 my class load in the major/minor fields. CS
  7. Creeker: This past September, the theme for our annual, Fall Round-Up, was "New School vs. Old School." Half the stages incorporated some things we don't usually do much any more. According to the surveys I received, the "Old School" stages were well received. One example: a full sized cutout of "Little Johnny," the brat who tormented you all through grade school. Shooter started standing in school house doorway with an old fashioned felt chalkboard eraser in one hand, ready for revenge. Starting line..."Hey, Johnny!" At the beep, toss the eraser at Little Johnny, step forward and retrieve
  8. Will be done as soon as we get everything taken care of. I really appreciate the site, but it seems to me I have had to make too many submissions in the last couple of years. CS
  9. I have seen them successfully used with APP. Nothing there to keep the fouling soft with Holy Black, so not a good idea, IMHO. CS
  10. We have just learned that the Illowa Irregulars' former TG Trader Dave passed away this morning after a long illness. Dave was my mentor when I first came into Cowboy Action. He took me under his wing, introduced me to "the power of the darkside," and eventually passed the TG baton to me. Although he hasn't been able to shoot in a while, his presence has been felt at every match, as he was the driving force behind the construction of Camden Mills, our cowboy town. Arrangements are pending. I will post them as they become available. *********************************************************
  11. The Illowa Irregulars have coffee, donuts, and occasionally breakfast pizza available during sign-up. During and after the match brats and hamburgers are grilled on-site, and chips/drinks are also available. These services are provided by the ladies of Epsilon Sigma Alpha, international collegiate and service sorority. ESA's primary philanthropic efforts are directed to St. Jude Children's Hospital, and all proceeds from our food sales go directly to St. Jude. Since our "cook shack" is centrally located on the cowboy range, some of our shooters choose to "eat on the run" during the match,
