... Yep, I am at it again :ph34r:... bringing it back home to Butterfield Gulch...

 

 

CLASSIC COWBOY SHOWDOWN

~2019~

 

YOU'VE BEEN CALLED....

 

Are You Tough Enough To Accept The Challenge?

 

 

For 2019 in conjunction with the Butterfield Gulch Gang's match... "The Siege At Clark's Station" ,  I am calling out all Classic Cowboys and Cowgirls across the country!  That is right a challenge for a showdown on the plains of Kansas has been issued!  Do You Accept?

 

 

    It takes a certain person to shoot the Classic Cowboy/Cowgirl category, with all the clothing, firearm, caliber, and such requirements... it truly takes dedication.   I have shot with many great folks in a few surrounding states that are great examples of Classic Cowboys/Cowgirls.  But I want to shoot with MORE OF YOU FINE FOLKS AND BATTLE IT OUT WITH A BIG GROUP OF CLASSIC SHOOTERS!  So come on...  accept the challenge and sign up for The Siege At Clark's Station.  All you have to do is sign up as either Classic Cowboy Or Classic Cowgirl to be entered in the SHOWDOWN.   If you have ever wanted to give the category a try now is your chance, and learn some things from those that have been shooting it for a while. 

 

Butterfield Gulch is located in central Kansas, just south of historic Chapman, KS... just a short ride from Abilene, KS.  So it is right in the middle of some of the most famous "End Of The Line" cattle drive towns!  Butterfield Gulch brings you seven permanent stages ranging from a Fort, Gallows, Stage Depot, and others.  Also have a great long range, with shooting from 100yds to 400yds. 

 

I will be putting up a custom buckle for the event if we can get at least five (Classic Cowboy) shooters signed up for it (Three Classic Cowgirls for a Buckle).. and possibly some other awards TBD.

 

Working out some details for a Classic Cowboy/Cowgirl Dinner get together on a Steam Train!  More info on that later so keep tuned in!

 

WEBSITE (CLUB INFO):  http://butterfieldgulch.com/default.htm

 

ENTRY FORM:  http://butterfieldgulch.com/Clarks Station flyer 2019 PDF.pdf

 

 

(All Shooters are encouraged to attend The Siege At Clark's Station Match.. but I am just picking a fight with the Classics :ph34r:... all in good fun of course :P)

 

I would love to see a huge gathering of classics for this match...unmatched at any other shooting venue! 

 

BUCKLE AND CONCHOS ARE DONE!!

Keep checking back for more info.

 

UPDATE 7-20-18 -  FRIDAY NIGHT SOCIAL TRAIN RIDE... See Below Post for more info.

 

UPDATE 1-4-19  ANOTHER AWARD OFFERED UP!  Abilene Slim has offered up a CUSTOM 2" Scarf Slide for an "1860 Henry Throwdown".  Abilene Slim just loves the 1860 Henry and knows many folks own one and enjoy shooting it, but often shy away for some reason or another...  To tempt people to use it for a main match he has offered up this award to the TOP shooter that uses the Henry for all 10 stages!  So if that is something that interest ya, just let me know when you register that your shooting the HENRY.

Hud, I noticed Major has a new hat and it is much larger then his old hat. :D Ya' never know what my little brother's up to and you always got to watch him closely. I think he actually practices drawing and reholstering and transitions. Ain't that sum kind of dedicashun?

 

Dinner on a steam train does sound like a great idear for this bunch of miscreants. Now if we could just get Bob Boze Bell to join us and tell us a story or two...;)

 

Sounds like a match NOT to miss. They run a good one there at Butterfield!

Count me in!!  Dinner on a steam train. Sounds great! Thanks Major for doing this again. 

Yeah I think it would be cool.  I just need to talk to them to see if there is a minimum # and cost.  The way I understand you can ride the train and bring your own catered meal too.. so there is an option as well.  Let you all know what I get figured out.

So a catered dinner on steam train, just ain't going to work out. Not sure we can meet the minimum people required.  

 

Would folks be interested in a diesel train ride (approximately 1hr 45minutes)  from Abilene to Enterprise and back?  This would be on a donation basis, what ever you want to chip in.  

Get get dressed up and have a quite the social!  

 

Let me know your thoughts...

No problem, the train idea would not be just for the classics.... Anyone may ride along.  Still trying to work out details yet.

Some of us would like to have an event using the oh so classic 1860 Henry.  A great rifle that just don't get the credit it deserves.  Been pondering on coming up with some type of competition with one.   A classic's challenge to all competitors so to speak.
