Widder, SASS #59054

Shaddai Vaquero & the Vaq Paq (Pack)

Recommended Posts

I'll just refer to all of Shaddai's immediate family and extended family as the Vaq Paq ifn nobody minds.

 

Many folks worked hard for this Annual match including support from owners and workers of the RockCastle facility in Glascow Ky.

 

From my saddle, this match was a huge success for the shooters. This venue and the surrounding facilities is gona make this annual shoot VERY reputable indeed.

 

Get this: Judge Roy Bean was there for the whole match. Yep, SASS #1.

I even got to run him around alittle in my truck and he was lookin good and hankin out with everyone to talk to him.

He sat next to my wife during one of our suppers and you would have thought they were best friends for many years. They talked for an hour during the meal.

 

Congrats to Black Tom and Dew R Dye for Overall Champs.

 

Congrats to Lily Bleu, Slick McCade's young daughter (9ish I think) for shooting CLEAN. And she was steady as a rock the whole match. I was tickled to be on a posse with her and Slick.

 

Congrats to Vaquero Jake for winning Young Gun.

Campo Kid finished only about 5 seconds behind. Whew, when 10 stages is only separated by only 5 seconds, that is exciting.

 

BUT, congrats to Campo Kid for whoopin up on me in side match speed SG 97. I love the competition and it was a blast shootin with Campo.

 

Gosh, I met soooooo many Wire Pards that it is hard to remember everyone. McKenzie River Drifter and Slick McCade were there and it was great to visit with them.

Can't ever forget Cree Vicar Dave. What a great feller.

 

Before I left the RockCastle Lodge, I made my reservations for 2012. You would be wise to consider doing the same.

 

One more thought from the heart:

 

THANKS SHADDAI and your family for what you bring to SASS/CAS and allowing us to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

God bless you all!

What Widder said. Lil and I got to shoot with a great possee, Fire and Fallback did a fantastic job, and shoots the cap and ball better than most smokeless shooters. It was a treat to see him, Cleve and Cree make smoke.

Congrats to all the winners. In fact everyone was a winner because it was a great shoot.

I had a great weekend shooting with some of my old and new friends, and I had enough fun for ten people. Or at least that is what I've been told.

 

I can promise you all that this match will only be getting bigger and better.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh by the way here are the scores.

Gotta' add my congrats to Shaddai and the gang for putting on one HECK OF A MATCH!! Fast stages with no P traps and lots of room for creativity! Thanks for the opportunity to chauffer the Judge #1 Judge Roy Bean around and talk about all the good stuff we see in S.A.S.S. What a great pard! Again, to the Vaqueros You all did a great job!! WAY TO GO!!

 

Lilly Bleu, lil' gal, YOU ROCK!!

 

Major kudos for the Noble family and their staff at the Park Mammoth facility. If there was anything missing I didn't see it, and their obvious commitment to shooting sports in general and S.A.S.S. in particular is over the top.

 

For Korupt Karl and Judge 'em All Duncan, FCG was there for the takin' since y'all wasn't there, SO I TOOK IT!! :lol: :lol: (And the buckles are beautiful ;))

 

As for me and the band, we know we can always count on the cowboys to make it a great night. You bet your (fill in the blank) we'll be back next year.

 

POSSE # 1 ROCKS!!

Yeehaa,

 

This is an event to put on your calender for next Memorial Day weekend. The Rockcastle Rangers & the Vaquero Family really put together a fine match. The range is most unique with two separated firing lines of five stages each. One line has a covered board walk strectching it's entire length. The other is more open. Much hard work has been put into building this venue. The property, Rockcastle Shooting Center, is privately owned by Nick & Nate Noble who are both dedicated to having a first rate shooting and training facility. The resort hotel is just minutes from the range and that's without leaving the property. There are many events happening at this facility and you need to take a peek at their website for updates.

 

Muchas Gracias, Keystone

Shaddai is first class all the way for sure! I personally appreciate all you do for our sport and we look forward to shootin with y'all again soon!

I would like to take this moment to express my gratitude and appreciation to all the families who have supported, loved, and finally greaved for the loved ones they lost while defending this great country of ours.

Awesome match and awesome people. Got to shoot with some pards we didnt know real well and as always everyone was awesome.

 

Papa Dave,What can I say... Fast shooter and a great man too..

 

It was a little tough ride home because Skeeterbite won a shinny first place buckle herself.

 

Food was excellent for ALL meals, weather was perfect!, and Milkbone was a blast.

 

Skeeter wants to come back next year for sure!!

 

First time I really got to talk to Shaddai much and if you dont know him, he is a top notch cowboy to say the least!

For only having a handful of matches since the club inception a few months ago, this range is looking great. I know how much work Shaddai and his family have put into making this a successful match. The Vaquero family succeeded. GREAT MATCH. Shaddai, Perfecto, and Jake, thanks again for all that you have done to make a great venue for another great match.
