  2. Y'all did your usual great job. We already booked our hotel for next April. Thanks for all the hard work, dedication and thoughtfulness.
  3. I understand a number of clubs are considering shifting dates for their events to avoid conflicts and to take advantage of the change. Some may be unable due to competing events at their ranges, but I would not assume that the dates for any match will be the same in 2022 and after.
  4. Congratulations to you both. One of the joys in this life is being able to shoot with you both and even more to visit. Best wishes!
  5. Verdigris Kid, we are all very appreciative of your helping at the unloading table and being so kind to carry the jugs with our spent cartridges to the next stages. You are a gentleman. A special nod needs to go to the Cowboy who had a jammed gun on the first stage, that resulted in an accidental discharge within five feet and a match DQ. That hurt. This Cowboy did not complain. He put his toys away and came back to help on that stage and on each on the following nine stages, acting as a TO at times, doing scoring, and spotting. Sedalia Dave you are an example to all on how a true Cowboy faces the rough spots and helps out. All of us thank you and are better off having met you. May you have a clean match this coming week in Tennessee!
  6. Congratulations to FLINT HILLS DAWG for Winning the Kansas State Black Powder Championship. The black powder shooters did a marathon of CAS in the morning and BP in the afternoon. It should be noted that he shot 20 stages - 10 Smokeless and 10 Black Powder - and had but one miss. Congratulations to No H Sara for Top Kansas Woman and to Sneaky for Top Kansas Man at the Prince of the Pistoleers Kansas State CAS Match! Congrats to Sneaky for Top Overall Man and Gunslinger Grace for Top Overall Woman! Thank you to all that came and played! Thank you to the vendors that were there! Giby Leather, Boiler Plate, T-Star Leather, and James Country Mercantile. Special thanks to Italian Pete for taking pictures over the 3 days. If you would like a peak at some of the pictures go to the Powder Creek Cowboys Facebook page, coming soon. https://www.facebook.com/powdercreekcowboys/?epa=SEARCH_BOX&__nodl
  7. They are excellent boots. The sizing is like a street shoe. I liked the first pair I got, so I bought a second and another for my wife. She loves her's.
  8. Everything folks have written is true. Very enjoyable event, run by the most gracious folks.
  9. I'm at the Missouri State Shoot for the weekend, but will see if the powers that be will give me a list when I get home so I can send it on.
  10. Well the application deadline has passed and a bunch of folks are now burning the midnight oil to make award plaques, do final clean up of the range, gather in the door prizes, make final arrangements for the feed and more. All to give those coming a warm welcome. Long Range weather forecast is lookin' good for the match and those traveling. Speaking of traveling, we will have folks from 11 States: Florida, Texas, Minnesota, Iowa, Oklahoma, Illinois, Arkansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Colorado and Kansas. We look forward to seeing ya'all!
  11. Dave, look forward to seeing you! Enjoyed visiting with you at MVSA.
  12. The deadline of September 15, is fast approaching. Time to get that application in!
  13. Good advice. Already have invited them both, told them to request being on our posse and they have been to a couple of local matches with us. One is my niece.
  14. After I posted an update for our Kansas State Championships to the wire (shameless plug) I had a talk with two friends, both new to Cowboy Shooting. Both enjoy our local shoots, but begged off going to the State Shoot. Both said they weren't "good enough". I hope after our talk they reconsider, but it got me thinking about the posts from new shooters I see and I thought I'd share what I passed along to my friends and I hope others chime in with better thoughts than mine. Ours is a shooting sport and competition is integral to what makes it fun, but there is so much more. I have always felt the competition is not with other shooters, but with me. I want to get better each time out. Lots of ways to get better - watch YouTube, dry fire practice - but the best way is to study those shooters who are among the best. More than study, also talk with them. Ask what their thoughts were on how to approach a stage, why they placed their toys where they did, study how they move through the course of fire. What better place to do this than where these experienced shooters are to be found - State and Regional Matches. Trust me, they will be glad to help you. Don't fear making a mistake. Mistakes are clues that help us improve and we all make them. The only people who don't make mistakes are those who gave up. More than a competition, Cowboy Shooting is about the people who share this game. By going to Championships my wife and I have met some of the kindest most generous folks - they have to be to put up with my tart mouth. We have been to shoots literally from North Carolina to California and from Texas to Minnesota. All told we have been to 12 different State Championships and two Regionals and met the greatest folks at each. The greatest reward is not a plaque or trophy but the friendships. I understand the trepidation of many to not venture out and expose themselves in these times. We are each different, with different concerns and that needs to be respected. That said, if your reluctance in going to a State or Regional Championship is the concern that you are not ready, put those feelings aside and go. Go for the learning and experience. If you are in the Southwest go to Land Run and enjoy Flat Top Okie's hospitality, the stages are challenging and fun, the Cowboy museum is a great venue to visit, the food is great and the people the finest. Around the corner are State Championships in Missouri, Tennessee and Kansas. Go. Relish the new people you will meet. Finally, keep in mind that these events often are needed to financially support the sport. For many vendors it is the only way they can reach potential customers and without their contributions we would all be poorer. Especially now these vendors and sponsors need our support. So come on out and have fun..
