Black Gold Shootout 2017!

Scratch, I will plan a few more stops on the bike ride this year.B)

 

Looks like the Outlaw World Championship will be a 5 stage match starting at 9:00 on Thursday. This will be for the buckle and you do not have to sign up early. We will also have Outlaw in the main match following the SASS rules for those of us who always shoot Outlaw and you do have to be signed up for it. We have also used the Outlaw match on Thursday as a Warm-up match and it seems I had a lot of Black Powder with me last year.

 

So on Thursday we have, Outlaw Match, Black Powder, Warm-up, Wild Bunch, and side matches, some kind of team match and lets not forget the Redneck Olympics.

 

I guess what I am trying to say is BRING PLENTY OF AMMO and maybe a few extra hours for each day.

 

So to clarify, is the Outlaw match on Thursday Black powder?

If so, this could be a problem.

If it is old buddy I'll bring some for ya.

 

I think it's BP if you want it. 

 

Is there a BP only match too?

 

Might need the cap guns.

I have not heard if anyone is going to come up for the bike ride on Wednesday other than Jake, Doc and myself. Is anyone else planning on riding? We may end up canceling this year if that is all that is planning on riding.

Cash'n'Ginger are planning to ride as well.

Waimea, for you, yes it is Outlaw Black Powder since you are the Florida Black Powder Outlaw Champion, Wait, seems you are also the Florida Outlaw Champion also. OK, we will let you shoot any powder you want to but before you get too excited you are helping me run the Outlaw match on Thursday and you are shooting Outlaw at the main match.

 

Just wanted to let you know.

 

Titus, I understand I will see you all on Sunday evening. I am so looking forward to this match.

Looks like some of us will be spending this weekend at the MT Winchester for the Battle of the Bands/Grand Opening.  We'll be at Joe's either Saturday or Sunday, not quite sure yet. Either way, I'm looking forward to seeing y'all as well.

:lol:

 

Thank you, Judge. Seems smokeless is OK.

 

I'm actually bringing a reloader with me because I have been so busy with Hillbilly Gold I ain't had a chance to put together a stage worth of ammo.:P

 

TT we can work on the details this week.

We will be pulling in sometime on Sunday as well. Might be a traffic jam on the driveway between me and Mrs Waimea and Titus and Cash.

 

Leaving in the morning to shoot with the Krappy Gang in Toccoa on Saturday.

 

Yeeeehaaaa!

Got my foot doctor appointment moved up to 8:00 am on Monday. If everything goes right, I'll be there on Monday afternoon.  I'm not in any real shape to shoot, but I plan to at least get in on a couple of stages.

 

Tombstone!  I can help with the Outlaw match and would be pleased to be allowed to contribute!!

Would someone explain to me why I had to go to page 2 of the wire to find this thread?  Shame on us.

Well, as more folks get out and head toward all the fun there's fewer of us left to keep the thread up front, I reckon.

I'm packing my "stuff" to send to Black Gold with Tombstone tomorrow. I'm arriving later in the week on Thursday.

I thought I'd give a heads up to folks going to Black Gold:

I'm bring all the necessary items to CLEAN jewelry and refresh patinas (at no charge for BSJ). So....if you or anyone you know has some Bullet Splat Jewelry, bring it!

And on Friday or Saturday morning, bring it to Lady T.’s RV, to be cleaned. Then stop back by after shooting to pick up your sparkling goodies!

 

Tell all your pards!

Looking forward to it.

Lady T.

I'd like to remind everybody that I'll be bringing my hat gear. I'll be set up to clean and re-shape/touch up hats from 10:00 'til 4:00 on Tuesday and Wednesday and after the Outlaw match 'til 4:00 on Thursday.  I'm planning on getting a couple of stages in on Friday, (I won't be able to shoot the whole match) and I'll try to be available for a while after that.  I probably won't set up on Saturday, so plan accordingly.

 

See y'all when ya' get there!!

I plan on coming down Thursday morning. If I am reading things right the warm up "mini" match starts at 9:00 A.M., side matches later in the day. Am I right about the warm up match time? The times translates to drive time and sleep lol.

Folks are starting to roll in and get set up. Looks like it is going to be a good one again. Whiskey Creek is putting the finishing touches on the Redneck Olympics, stages are pretty much set and ready to go. All we need now are all the good folks who will be here.


Safe travels.

I will be there sometime on Wednesday. Is anybody going to be there making earplugs? I would like to get a set made for my son who will be shooting with me. 

 

I was at the range teaching him about cowboy shooting last Friday and will be at the range with him tomorrow getting him ready for his first shoot.

 

Gun are all working ok, and working on drawing and safety rules with him. I think he is ready and we will most likely shoot the practice match Thursday and some side matches.

 

Still looking for a alias for him. Should be packed by tomorrow evening and leaving out early Wed morning.

Scarlett will be there with Tommy......they make a great set of ear plugs....best I've ever used.

 

Oh, and Maddog, when you see Waimea you'll need to blame him about his lack of a large quantity of shot.  I was only going to buy a half a bag on Saturday but he just kept filling up containers and made me take most all of what he had.  I was trying to look out for ya but you know how ole Waimea is....he can sell ice to Eskimos and penicillin shots to soiled doves :blink::lol:

Got to the range about 3:30.  The place looks GREAT!!!  A few of the usual suspects are already here and helping put the finishing touches on the range AND the kitchen.  Joe has expanded the covered picnic area, the covers on the stages, and over the loading/unloading tables.  Many other improvements, too many to mention, are already done!!

 

Y'all that ain't comin' are really missin' out!!!

I've not read every post on these topics about Black Gold match but somewhere there was talk of hillbillies and bib overalls.   

 

Sawmill Mary and I are planning to head that way tomorrow and hobknob on at least Thursday.   Will bib overalls be considered proper attire?

What fun!!  The Hillbilly Olympics were hysterical!! I laughed so hard! No complaints!  We already made our reservations for next year!  The hospitality of the Jarvis family is amazing! It's a big little match! What's so nice is that everything happens right there - you get time to visit and get to know folks.... the ladies who cooked lunch/dinner were so nice and good cooks!  The folks in town were friendly and happy that a bunch of cowboys had invaded Manchester, too!

 

Thank you to EVERYONE who had a hand in another great match!

What a great shoot! Joe, Bo, family, and friends put on the best major shoot out there.  Whiskey Creek's "Hillbilly Olympics" were fun for participants and spectators and Black Water and others provided great music   Thank you all for all your hard work!  Miss Kitty Kat and I have already made our hotel reservations for next year.

 

Seriously, if you've never attended this shoot, your missing a good one.
