Yea, but with regionals, state championships and the trips to Arizona and New Mexico,  it's a bit more than my plate can hold. 

Maybe one of these days! It would be good to meet you.

If any folks coming to the match have a chance to eat in Abilene, Ks while here... I urge you to check out the Brookville Hotel. http://www.brookvillehotel.com/

 

Great fried chicken dinner... And a very neat atmosphere!

I am hoping that Ned only loads his revolvers with 3 rounds each to give the rest of us a chance.  On 2nd thought maybe just 2 rounds each. :o Yup. He's good.

 

 I'm looking forward to seeing you again, Ned. This is going to be one magnificent shoot.

 

Lots of old and new cowboy friends!

I am planning on eating there on the evening of the 2nd of May. It would probably be very difficult to set this up in conjunction with the train ride, but who knows what the Major can do.

The owner of Brookfield loves cowboy shooters, he has had group photo's taken with us.  So I'm sure the Major could make it happen without much arm twisting!!!!

I was more thinking that the restaurant opens at 5 and our train ride is at 6. Might be squeezing the clock a mite.

Yep you are correct... Time restraints make it tough to do.  Hopefully some get a chance to eat there.

Could you ask the owner to open early at 4:30 pm, I'm sure we could get a large enough group to make it worth his while...

I personally just don't have the time pard...   We got side match events till 4.  Then the targets need reset and painted back up for main match on Saturday.  Then I need to get to train station and get things squared away there.  Drinks and snack and such aboard train.

 

Other shooters may have time if they got in right at 5 at Brookville Hotel.. Have to eat fast though.. :)

 

Also welcome to bring food on train

Hello Drifter

Insanity and I would like to join you guys at the Brookville Inn on Thursday evening If you don't mind.

May have Beefalo Bruns join us as well, if that is agreeable?

Maybe we can turn this into a party on Thursday night too!

We had a good group last year.

that would be great. The more that can come the better. Evolving into a party....perfect! Perhaps when we get a head count in the next week or two we should go ahead and get reservations.

... 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!!

PSX_20181220_213921.thumb.jpg.67453eb27131f4d96f824869a69ca422.jpg

 

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.
