  1. Most everything at the Ben Avery is downsized or cancelled.
  2. Pard, the answer is in the flow chart. Were all targets hit with the proper ammunition? Yes. Asses no misses. Were all the targets hit in the proper order? No. Asses a Procedural. See you next weekend.
  3. Right down the road, towards Wickenburg, is the Granite Mountain Hotshots Memorial. Great name for a club.
  4. Seconding the great match. TTB and JM rock. Enjoyed all 12 stages. Posse 6 Rocks. Thanks Echo Meadows for being PL. Let's do it again sometime, soon. Staying at the Livery was great. Lovely weather, and the sunsets were great.
  5. No on the first. The reason is not just for calling hits/misses, it's so the quantity of shots can be ascertained, and for the timer to pick up those shots. Question 2, the plate racks are 90 degrees to each other, which make them 45+- degrees from the shooter. There would be no problem. Some folk are thinking 90 degrees, each way, from the shooter, which is 180 degrees, and is not allowed. I have shot at ranges with the two plate rack scenario at 90degrees from each other. Gunfighters love it.
  6. It's the National Championships. It shoots all three days. 800+ shooters. 36 Posses. You shoot 4 stages each day. You rotate starting times, i.e. if you shoot at 0800 on Wednesday, you shoot 1500 Thursday, and 1100 Friday. So yes, you have to shoot all three days.
  7. SASS Conventions are the Pistols are returned to leather Unless Otherwise Directed. 1: Stage Descriptions allowed staging of pistols on window sill 2. Stage Descriptions said nothing about restaging of pistols on sill SASS Covenants take over at this point requiring pistols to be holstered at the end of the shooting string. To avoid this issue, write, what you intend, into the stage descriptions, or discuss it during the posse leader walk.
  8. No SDQ. Once the barrel has come apart from the action, it is two separate pieces of steel. The call is CU, Change Underware. And replace the wedge
  9. Look at the Clothing/Leather/Gun rules for both B Western and Classic Cowboy. You'll find this will NOT work in BW, but might, depending on accessories and caliber, for CC.
  10. We've told spectators that, "only registered shooters may wear guns". Works well and doesn't get the spectator upset.
  11. One of the Major problems in our game is loss of hearing. Whether through age, ear plugs or whatever. Compound that with having to speak through a muffle, and whether you think it or not, a mask is a muffle for us harder hearing folk. In my mind, if you're that concerned, don't go to the shoot. If you're that sick, don't go to the shoot.
  12. If the shooter is wearing a mask, there is no reason for the TO to be wearing one. If the shooter is not wearing a mask, the question is moot.
  13. Be seeing you in a few months. Putting the rancho on sale soon and are actively looking in your neck of the woods. See you at WR
  14. Work on my android phone, dell desktop and laptop computer, nook reader, asus tablet. Could be operator error.
  15. Or, you could ask the Marine at the gate. Not the "rent a gate keeper" but a real, US Military representative. The SP's might let you lock it up in their shop. Again, don't ask the civilian at the gate, ask someone in uniform.
  16. Had a 650 Bonneville back in the '70s. Sold it when I went in the navy. Sure wish I still had it. Enjoy pard.
  17. Was in Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England last September and October. Drove from Dublin to Galway with site trips to Newgrange, and Tullamore. Toured the Tullamore DEW distillery and stayed in a B&B there. Next day on to Galway and a B&B there with a couple of side trips to see castles. Tour train through Galway and some shopping. Drove to the little town of Cong, just north of Galway. It's where they filmed the Quiet Man with John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara. Lovely place. Had a dinner at Dunguaire Castle just south of Galway. Great time that. Then drove to Waterford on the southeast coast. Toured the Waterford Crystal place, stayed at a B&B. Drove back to Dublin and hit the Guiness Brewery and the Jameson Distillery. All the time we were stopping at pubs for Irish Music Sessions and local flavor. Great time. Note - Nobody serves breakfast. No restaurants open before noonish. We're country people and get up early to see the sights, no food until lunch. Bring your own or you'll be hangry. Folks eat at home or, if your a tourist, at the B&B. Flew to Wales and stayed at a B&B in Cardiff for two nights. Drove to LLantrasant to see where the Black Army was founded in the 1600's. This is where the English(welsh) Long Bowman came from. The ones that won at Agincourt and Cercey. Then via train to Glasgow, rent a car and drove to Stirling and the Wallace Monument (yes, I climbed all the stairs). Drove to Inverness to see the Queen of Blings peoples castle in Cawdor. Then back down the north side of Loch Ness to see my peoples ruins (we backed the wrong king). Back to Glasgow then train back to Cardiff and the same B&B then drove to Windsor via Stonehenge. A day trip to London (too crowded for this old boy) and then home. In all 28 days. We'll do it again but stay in Ireland for more music and fun. We did our own planning, reservations, flights, cars, B&B's etc. Enjoyed the heck out of it.
