  1. Hardpan: No, Yreka. But I herded cattle in that area a time or two. Lived there 26 years; worked cattle in my spare time and worked as a wrangler at "R" Ranch in Hornbrook, Ca. Usual cattle drives were local in Shasta/Little Shasta Valley, while others were in Copco Lake area and north to the Oregon border. A few drives in Oregon for spring grazing and winter gathering; a few drives to load cattle for market. My wife passed away in August of 2018 after being here for a short time [Feb. 2016], so horses had to be "re-homed" and life style changed a bunch. I miss it, but not enough to go back to California [age: 81; taxes and political climate!] Wonderful experience though.
  2. Does S.A.S.S. still hold conventions? Seems to me I remember a convention being held in Las Vegas, Nv., [Henderson area]. Just wondering if those are still held anywhere. Thanks for any info.
  3. As others have said. Go to a regular shoot; ask around, there'll be some one that has or knows of an available cart.
  4. As a "transplant from Detroit,Mi., 1945", I grew up in SoCal [San Bernardino] lived there 45 years and moved north to Siskiyou County, just south of the Oregon border. That portion of California is beautiful, under represented and conservation country. We left in 2016 to be with family in SoCal, but couldn't afford to live in SoCal, so we moved to Pahrump, Nevada. A four hour drive to family and friends. My wife passed away in 2018, so she never got to see all that Nevada has to offer. I am still a "Californio", but can't afford to live there. Politics and taxation keep me from "going home". Allie, hang in there. Sounds like your wood stove will be able to handle it.
  5. Happy Birthday, Bloody Bill. I lived in Yreka 26 years; left in 2016 and never knew about C.A.S. until I moved to Pahrump, Nv. and a neighbor got me "interested" in C.A.S. So I started "practicing" at age 78; found some .38's I could afford along with a '73 Uberti and a new Stoeger SXS coach gun. Joined SASS last year and am still in the novice class, but really enjoy the sport. Sure wish I had know about C.A.S. when I was living in Yreka. Again, Happy Birthday, hope to shoot with you some time. I had a small telephone service business in Yreka for 26 years [B.Y.T.E.S. ; Bob Young's Telephone Equipment and Service]; I may have run into some of your club members at some time but C.A.S. never came up and I don't recall ever seeing any "posters" or advertising any event. Too bad, because I certainly would have wanted to try out the sport.
  6. Blind, but he lost the sight in his eye in an auto accident on I-10 in the Fontana-Bloomington area of California. The closest hospital was in San Bernardino, California, the San Bernardino Community Hospital at the corner of 4th Street and Arrowhead Avenue. A wooden frame structure from the 20's. Mr. Davis received such good care and was so thankful that he was able to be cared for that when he learned of a need to update and move the hospital to other property in San Bernardino, he donated a very substantial amount of money to purchase the land. There is a plaque at the "new" San Bernardino Community Hospital on Muscott Avenue giving Mr. Davis recognition.
