Eldorado MAIN MATCHES

Recommended Posts

Eldorado 2018 - Gunfights on the streets of Eldorado

The Eldorado Cowboys are proud to present the 2018 SASS Nevada State Championship of Cowboy Action Shooting.

October 4th, 5th & 6th, 2018 in historic Boulder City Nevada.

 

http://eldoradocowboys.com/

 

This years match will be a full throttle - up close and fast - run your guns match.

Main Match stages are now posted on our website.

 

http://eldoradocowboys.com/assets/applets/2018_MAIN_MATCH__6.25.18_printer_ready.pdf

 

As you examine the stages; keep in mind, all targets are the largest pieces we have in our inventory and will be placed close to the firing line.

Plates are minimally 16x16.  Some 24x24.  A 48x36 half moon.  And some coyotes that are cut from 48x48 plates.

And distances?

PISTOLS at 3 - 4 paces

Dedicated RIFLE targets at 6 - 9 paces

Combo R/P plates at 5 paces

SHOTGUN at 7 - 8 paces

 

What about things other than target size and distance?

Plenty of movement - but ZERO track and field events (individual movements will be held to 3 - 4 paces wherever possible)

Interesting variation of sweeps with NO repeated sequences

Multiple shooters choice stages for firearms order

Multiple shooters choice stages for direction of movement

Most stages are 4 + shotgun - with a smattering of 6 + shotgun thrown in.

Prop manipulations are limited to opening some swinging doors - flipping over a card table and knocking open a window.

 

In addition to the full throttle DRAG RACE Main Match...

Eldorado 2018 offers:

Full slate of side matches including true rifle caliber long range events.

Speed Pistol/ Rifle/ Shotgun

22 caliber rifle/ pistol 

Pocket pistol/ Derringer

The chickens are a little smaller than I advertised. 

To be honest, I had forgot about using them. 

That stage was originally written with four clay pigeons (2 for pistol, 2 for rifle) at point blank range and when cost, cleanup and reset were factored in - they got changed to chickens.

 

They are about 6x6, but they will be CLOSE.  Really close.  And they are written with the allowance for makeup in case of a miss or non faller.

 

My very reasonably loaded 38spls take them down with ease.

I would try that; but not everyone shares our same sense of humor.

I'm sorry. 

Are you guys attending the same matches as I am?

 

NEKKID chickens have never factored into any shoot that I have ever written, attended or heard about.

 

But I guess what happens in Vegas; stays in Vegas.

I actually wanted to shoot Peeps for the Dam Site shoot. 

I thought shotgun on a marshmallow peep would have been cool.

But we were afraid that all the sugar would have brought out the bees and the marshmallow on the range might have brought burros or mountain sheep down into the bays.

 

So steel Chickie's it is.

An updated Who's Coming list is on the website 07.03.18.

 

Hells Coming is no longer listed as Silver Senior Lady.

 

This has been corrected and Hells Coming moved to the category of Lady Wrangler.

 

We deeply apologise for any confusion and inconvenience.

 

Please review your alias and category listing to ensure you are listed correctly.

Also; I'm starting to question if anyone is actually looking at the stages...

 

In the process of writing Mini Match stages last night, (shooting our four stage Mini Match utilizing the steel and bays 9-12) I discovered an error on the Main Match stages.

 

Namely on the chicken stage...

The instructions calling for the engagement of the KNOCKdown chickens was instead written as engage the KOCKdown chickens.

 

Now a simple mis spelling or typo; I understand folks not catching.

But this one I am amazed was allowed to exist without at least one inappropriate comment.

 

In other words...

Where are you; Gawd Awful, Shooting Bull, Ace of Hearts?

 

Read the stages; share your feedback and strategies and let's protect the children from the existence of KOCKdown chickens.

 

Mini Match stages will be available soon.

:ph34r:  Well, I read 'em and I liked 'em.  This is gonna be FUN!  And my very first match as a CATTLE BARON! 

        Only way I'll ever have the title of 'Baron' of anything.....

 

    And I see in the "Who's Coming" list that Shooting Bull has covered his bases by signing up twice......

 

BTW, the "Who's Coming" list IS for Eldorado, right?  Not Damsite, as titled, eh?

Yeah - she wasn't happy.

But it is fixed now and only a single Shooting Bull is attending.

 

Tho a Shooting Bull on each and every posse would have been interesting as well.
