The Tejas Caballeros are hosting The Whoopin' Oct. 15-17, 2021 and doing things a little differently. Instead of a banquet Saturday night the Texas Republic Ranches Legacy Foundation (a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit) is hosting a "Cowboy Jamboree. " in the old Blanco County Courthouse where the recent version of the movie True Grit was filmed. The Old Blanco Courthouse will be decorated to look like an Old West Saloon. Participants will dress in Old West Costumes. There’s a “Stretch Raffle” featuring prizes with an Old West theme, a Promenade & Costume Contest on the Blanco Square, Faro Tables for fun, Silent Auction, Stretch Raffle & Prizes! 5:00 ~ 8:00 pm. The officers have been practicing how to deal and play Faro, the gambling game that was more popular than poker in the Old West. Great chance to learn what it was all about. Some great prizes, raffle items and giveaways. Oh, and there is a shooting match too. The Tejas Caballeros have a permanent range they call Determination, Texas located at the Texas Republic Ranch just a few miles west of Blanco, Texas (45 miles west of Austin, Texas). The well constructed stages include a Bank, Gallows, Saloon, Jail/Post Office, Livery, Wheelwright Shop (with a kick-open door!), Mine Cart (yes, we shoot out of the mine cart), and an Outlaw Cabin as well as several more. There will be 10 Cowboy Action shooting Stages based on both versions of the movie True Grit. We will shoot 6 stages on Saturday, 4 on Sunday. Awards after lunch on Sunday, leaving plenty of time to make it back home that evening. (or make a good start if you come from farther) If you haven't shot at the Cabs range you should, and this is a great opportunity to do so. Hope you can come.
