You're not our Mom! :angry: Although as ugly as you are I wouldn't be surprised if you'd spawned Gawd Awful. :P

This match is coming soon. 

But we still have room for you.

Last minute sign ups are always welcome.

So if you're anywhere near Southern Nevada and you haven't signed up yet what are you waiting for?

(I'm looking at you; California, Arizona and Utah shooters)

Looking forward to a fast fun shoot.

Join us if you can.

Formal awards Banquet at the beautiful Hoover Dam Lodge.

What is considered Formal?  All I got is the clothes on my back that I shoot in but I can try to knock some of the dust off if that would get me into rear door.

And if you want - I can promise you a posse placement with sane folks (mostly)

And if it's not too late, please put me with one of your sane posses with as few misfits as possible! :P

Any promises of sanity may no longer be honored.

You are welcome to wear any cowboy apparel to the banquet.

And you will see dress of all sorts.

From dust covered working cowboys to gentlemen in continental suits; from lady drovers to prim and proper ladies in swaths of cloth; from crazed miners to military officers.

We are a big tent event and welcome everyone with open arms (especially the scantily clad soiled doves - or that might be just me).

Unless the banquet has been moved it is literally in a big tent.

This time next week.........

SOME of you......

Will be unhappy that you didn't come play with me.

Will be unhappy that they didn't get to hug Shooting Bull

Will be unhappy you didn't get to get dirty with Creeker

 

And some of you will just be unhappy

 

There is still time to correct this problem.

It is a mandatory point in our banquet contract that cupcakes are on the menu.  Even to the specificity of ensuring that Desert Scorpions red velvet cupcakes are present.  So shall I let Charming know you are on way?

:ph34r:  Quoting (and missing) Nellie Blue, "IS IT TIME TO SHOOT YET?"....:D

 

        Finished the gun cleaning/tuning/testing and started the truck loading.....  by not shooting B Western (not by choice), the loading and wardrobe choices are really simplified.

 

        Weather looks to be great....  this is shaping up to be an outstanding event!

Now I could be wrong BUT...... it looks like he decided to come right after Ace of Hearts made the following comments.............

 

"This time next week.........

I think it's quite possible that he could be coming for the Hugs, after all, another shooter was lured in by cupcakes!

NOTE TO SELF:  Kick Ace of Hearts right in the knee. I'd be okay if it was Miss Allie Mo or another shooter of equal hugability but, Gawd Awful?  I'm might kick Ace in BOTH knees. :angry:

Well, the first day of steel set is complete.

Now for a shower and a handful of ibuprofen, some sleep and back at it in the morning.

Stage dressing, painting and accessories tomorrow.

Make sure the moving target actually moves, that the knockdown targets fall and that the resets work. 

Walk through and fuss budgeting.

Moving targets 1/4" of an inch one way, then 1/2 of an inch back the other.

Checking distances between positions and checking the the number of paces from firing line to targets (average of 4 for pistols, 7 for shotgun and 9-12 for rifle). 

Verifying sight lines and prop heights.

Installing shooting shelves and hunting for anything and everything that needs adjusting, tweaking or fixing.

And hoping that everyone has a safe, fun match.

See you all there.

The match is ready!!!

Back to the range today to walk thru the stages one last time - write my notes for the posse marshal meeting.

Meet and greet with the RV camping shooters arriving today.

Visit the banquet room at the Hoover Dam Lodge with Desert Scorpion to check out where she wants to do awards pictures and set up lighting.

 

Setup was completed with a minimum of injuries. 

Everyone is still walking upright and has all their fingers functioning.

 

Observations after set up:

Our new coyote shaped targets are huge.  Approx. 36"x36".

 

Our swinging doors to activate the moving target works perfectly.

 

All distances between shooting positions are nice and short. 

Most are 4 paces or less. 

The longest movement is 7 paces.

 

Steel set up with temps in the 70s and 80s is so much easier than when temps are 112. 

The weather has been great and looks to continue the same thru the match.

 

Looking at the stages. 

Looking at the target placements.

Looking at the movements.

I'm getting excited about shooting this one.

 

Thank you to everyone that is attending.

To everyone that has attended in the past.

And thank you to everyone that is considering attending an Eldorado event in the future.

 

We do all this work so you can come out with friends and family.

So we may play together with good people that share a love of shooting, the old west and competition (serious or light hearted).

We do this to make new friends and to remember our loved ones that have left us.

There's only two rules that really matter:

Be safe and have fun.

Welcome to Eldorado.

Based on this thread I'd say Buffoonery.

 

Sounds like it was a good show. Sorry I couldn't make it this year.
