  1. ONE MORE MONTH!! Only 35 more day till the black powder championship double header of the year! At the end of 2019 will you be able to say you were there? All of the loading and unloading table covers have officially been completed! Now we’ll have you covered in the sun or rain. By next year we might have fan under the loading table covers to help you beat the heat. Registration continues to be hot and heavy. We have less then 25 spots left for Darkness Falls and have almost reached 100 shooters for A Dark Day. I wouldn’t wait too much longer to get your apps in if you plan on coming. You can see who has already signed up here http://fwcc.net/black-powder-championships/. Breaking new from the Action Shooting Network! During A Day Day, they are going to draw a name from the shooters who are at the match and reimburse them their entry fee. That’s right one lucky shooter will get to shoot A Dark Day On The Santa Fe for free! Don’t forget if you plan on dry camping on the range please send an email to Yadkin Hawks at rfmelt@comcast.net to make your reservation. Please support the vendors that support us!

Also Bullets by Chance will give one dollar off every box and all preorders if 5 or more boxes it will two dollars off! Last year we had about 65 in attendance at the Thursday night dinner at Longhorns in Lake City. If you plan on attending this year please let me know so I can give the restaurant an accurate headcount so they can be prepared for a group of hungry cowboys and girls. Don’t shoot black powder? Still want to shoot Darkness Falls and Dark Day? We’ve got you covered. We are offering a Smokeless and Senior Smokeless categories.

  2. 20 States and Counting!! I wouldn’t normally send out an update again so quick but a lot has happened over the past week. We now officially have 20 different states represented, shattering our previous record of 16. We’ve had two workdays on the range last week and one happening now as I type this. Be the end of the day we will have extended the wall between bay 1 and 2 by 8ft to give more berm depth and closer locate the unloading table to the stage. All of our previous loading and unloading tables that were not undercover will all have framed out roofs just needing to have to tin put on. By the end of next week they will be completed! Registration continues to be hot and heavy. We have just 30 spots left for Darkness Falls and have almost reached 100 shooters for A Dark Day. I wouldn’t wait too much longer to get your apps in if you plan on coming. An updated shooters list has been posted this morning http://fwcc.net/black-powder-championships/ For those who have not heard we had changed the on range camping area to be on the shotgun range, which means we have plenty of dry camping on the range compared to what we have had in the past. If you would like to dry camp at the range, please send an email to Yadkin Hawks at rfmelt@comcast.net to make your reservation. Don’t forget about our great vendor that are going to be on hand with us. Outlaw Bullets, Bullets by Chance, Klassic Laser Works, Red River Bullets and Bullet by Scarlett.

We had a ton of fun at the dinner at Longhorns in Lake City last year. If you plan on attending this year please let me know so I can give the restaurant an accurate headcount so they can be prepared for a group of hungry cowboys and girls. Don’t forget that you can still shoot Darkness Falls and Dark Day even if you’re too scared to come to the Dark Side. We are offering a Smokeless and Senior Smokeless categories. Darkness Falls and A Dark Day On The Santa Fe makes for one heck of warm up for the Ides of March down in Eustis the following week.

  5. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all of us at A Dark Day On The Santa Fe The month of December has been very good to us, we’ve received a bunch of applications already this month and we still have 12 more days to go. I wouldn’t wait too much longer to get your applications in for Darkness Falls and A Dark Day. Historically we see record numbers of applications arrive in January. We will be placing the orders for Dark Day buckles and Darkness Falls statues the early part of January, you’re not going to want to miss out on the awards this year, so make sur to get your applications early so we don’t miss your category. The awards take six weeks to order. Don’t forget to let me know if you plan to attend the dinner a Longhorn in Lake City on Thursday night. Scarlett Darlin’ told me to tell you all that she has a special Christmas gift for all her favorite Cowboys and Cowgirls. She has a special running on American Pioneer Powder from now till A Dark Day. See the vendor section of either the Darkness Falls or Dark Day web page for more information http://fwcc.net/black-powder-championships/ Wishing you and yours a happy holiday season, see you in March.
  6. Thanksgiving is a time to look back and reflect on all that you have been blessed with over the past year. So us here at A Dark Day On The Santa Fe took the time to reflect back and see what we are thankful for this year……. We are thankful for all the match workers who volunteer so much of their time to help prep and set up. We are thankful for all the vendors and sponsors who have supported us over the years and continue to faithfully do so. And most of all we are thankful for you our shooters. Without you there would be no Dark Day On the Santa Fe. From all of us at A Dark Day On The Santa Fe, we wish you and yours a happy and safe Thanksgiving.
  7. I personally haven't heard anything about any of them. They all have a four star rating. River Run is closest to the range. We do have a shooter that come down from New Hampshire four month at the beginning of the year and he stays at the one in High Springs.
