  1. Had a Horse, his name was Nutmeg. Hence "Nutmeg Ryder" Miss that old stubborn Appaloosa, best horse ever, until my old Quarter Horse reset the bar.
  2. There is a concern if your loading and unloading tables are also in the berm and the muzzles are pointed directly at the concrete. If there is an accidental discharge there is a chance of ricochet and or concrete bits coming back at the people at the table. If the loading and unloading tables are directly facing the concrete you have to put some sort of wood with a gap between it and the concrete to capture the bullet and shrapnel. That and IF your perhaps a little hung over, those shotgun rounds are mighty loud first thing in the morning.
  3. Time to tune up the camper and take a vacation. Hope to make it, and just enjoy the shoot! I got room for one more hearty New Englander to ride shotgun!
  4. There is no Great Nor' Easter this year, either as a Regional nor an annual. there are several reason, one being financial, as mentioned earlier there are the advertising, fees to SASS, the cost per shooter to the club, and the number of free shoots. Last year the shoot ran a deficit of $1000.00 With no bankroll, to cover that, we were in a pickle. There was some no, yes, no from SASS just after last years match as to if the Regional were to be hosted by NEWS. In the end it was a no. Which was of some mutual agreement. After hearing no the group decided to not host a shoot, then were asked to do so, but the die had been cast. There was discussion of doing an annual, the club where the event is held would not lower the cost per shooter even with using less bays, less days etc so again, cost made this option a no go. Also mentioned above is the number of hours it takes to put on a large match is daunting, the primary work crew last year for the GNE consisted of 8 or 9 cowboys. That's a lot of steel, props to collect, get into working order, set up, and tear down and return. I hope there is a club in the North East Region who can take on this endeavor and I will be there too help!
  5. We try and work a little bit of old with the new. Good sized targets, at reasonably close range, throw in one longer distance rifle target, loaded from your body, main match rifle or a single shot, shooters choice. Then a stage where you have to carry Pauley the Parrot to each table. A Stand and Deliver. Etc. Nothing left to horribly much to chance, and if there is a sand bag toss at the carnival stage, it's off the clock, the hole is big, the bag is small, and it's a bonus for nearly everyone, and a good laugh for those who miss. Mix it up a little, keep it fun. Do the whacky off the clock stuff, take a breath, grip em, rip and see how it goes.
  6. Fairly decent with them all, which is faster depends an the sweep and target placement. I can however have either a great or horrific run with any of them at any time, even halfway thru a string.
  7. Nutmeg Ryder 74966 Rhode Island Lincoln County Lawmen, or wherever there's a shoot Been having this fun for about 11 years now.
