Colorado State Championship match, July 3-6, 2014

Recommended Posts

On behalf of the Pawnee Station Vindicators, I am pleased to announce that they will be hosting the Colorado State Championship match to be held July 3-6, 2014!!

 

Pawnee Station shoots at the Great Guns Sporting facility in Nunn, Colorado. This facility is ideal for a large match such is this. There is ample dry camping at the range, facilities for cowboy clays and long range, and any other side match a cowboy could dream up. There are 13 bays in the cowboy range in the volcano crater, each with full side berms that allow down range movement on each stage if the match director so desires. The number of bays also allows that all 12 stages of the match can each have a bay. It also means that the match could host at least 240 shooters without having to go to two shifts. For those who prefer a bunkhouse in town, there are hundreds of rooms 20 minutes or so from the range in nearby Fort Collins and Wellington.

 

Mark your calendars now, this is gonna be a great match!!! I hope to see you there!!

 

Information and registration forms are now available on the Pawnee Station website.

I've gone to the Pawnee Station annual each of the last 4 or 5 years, and each year it gets bigger and better.

 

Add to that the fact that the 2014 edition will be the state championship, and I can't wait to go!

I would love to come up there for this.

 

I might work in it. See if it will work out.

 

 

Was going to EOT. But don't think so anymore.

 

So this might take it's place for our trip.

 

 

P.S. Hope they get some road put back.

Looks like many roads got taken out from the floods.

Hope ya can make it Al, I25 will take you up through Colorado most of the way, it's only a little further east on Hwy 14 then north on Hwy 85. I don't think there's much damage on those roads, and what there is if any should be fixed pretty soon, certainly by next summer. Most of the serious damage was either in the mountains, or on lesser roads with older bridges that were damaged by debris in the rivers.

 

And if you and Union Jack and Ruthless Babe do make it, just remind me and Grizz about the middle of June and we can make sure there's ice cream ;):D

Al, Texas Slim made it up for this match a couple of years ago and seemed to really enjoy himself. That was one of the first years at the new range, and it's gotten much better since then.

Gardner Kid, for those that travel from match to match, such as the Australians and others, having big matches back to back allows them to get in more shooting on their trip. Folks will have 3 or 4 days to make it from EOT up to Nunn which is at worst a day and a half drive pulling a trailer, or 8 hours in a car. It may not be ideal for everyone, but it has proven to be successful in the past.

 

I am looking forward to this match a whole lot even though I have the pleasure of shooting at Pawnee Station every month. Awesome props, great stages, great people.

If I can swing it, I will be there. Have they decided on match fees for the match? Are there hotels in the area?

Stirrup -

Lots of motels about 20 minutes from the range in Fort Collins and Wellington. And tons to space for dry camping right at the range.

 

Match fees have not yet been set that I know of, but should be soon. It's on the agenda for the meeting this weekend IIRC.

Not bad, Grizz. The only thing I would say is that the logo doesn't say "cowboy" to me. If I didn't know what SASS was, I would have to google it to figure out what it was about. I like the color choices though.

Rolan - I think it would be worth the trip. I might be a bit biased though, but there is lots to do out here for the whole family.

Howdy Grizz,

That looks good. I wonder if you could incorporate that into a name tag?

 

CBG

 

That was one of my suggestions, we'll have to see how it plays out with the club and organizers, and of course how much we could get them for.

What a great Christmas gift idea, give the gift of cowboy action shooting, register your loved one (and yourself) for this match and wrap it up with a nice bow!
