Classic Cowboy/Cowgirl Shootist of the Year Nominations

Recommended Posts

I ain't seen Brother King in years. Where's he keeping himself?

 

Has Dragon Hill Dave ever been nominated/selected for CC of the Year? 'Twould seem appropriate that he's given credit for this whole CC award thing! And he's quite the shooter, don't forget. :D

DHD and Bro King are both original members of the Mag 7 as I understand it, and have removed themselves from contention.

 

I think Bro King mostly plays in 3 gun these days.

 

And as far as winning a second time, my thought would be that the mag 7 wants new folks to win each year as long as there are suitable candidates.  Which I think there are, but there are a lot of folks who don't frequent the wire.  Though I sure don't presume to speak for them.

I would say Holy Rider is a top hand and all around good guy. A Classic Cowboy I have had the pleasure to shoot with him on multiple occasions.

I am going to nominate ASA SMITH. He has been shooting Classic Cowboy before it was a category. Works his tail off for his club. Powder Creek Cowboys. When new shooter shows up Asa outfits him with holsters guns and ammo! Been doing this for years! Nice guy. Straight forward talker. 

Christian. Anybody who has been around him can testify to his worthiness. Its ok to vote for 2 nominees!!

I am going to nominate Mattie Mahala West for Classic Cowgirl. She is one of the nicest gals you will ever meet. Ornery as could be, has a great time shooting!! This gal is a shooter. One of the kindest  gals you will ever meet. She moved to Alabama as she is full time Army. Her duties keep her from shooting sometimes. We do miss her in Kansas. Heck she shoots bigger bullets then I do!! She is proud to shoot Classic Cowgirl.

Please folks I am not writer so I might do her more harm then good. Dantankerous or Major you boys edit it up if you want.!

What High Plains Hud said. Well stated, Hud!

 

Mattie Mahala West gets my vote as well. I have not seen her in a while but you're right, she's a shooter!

 

Maybe the Army can let her go to a few more matches this next year. ;)

As far as I know they can only win once, but honestly not for sure.  Dragon Hill Dave can give us the info on that next time he check this post.

That is true--you can only win once. We want to give others a chance to be recognized for their good representation of the Classic Cowboy/Cowgirl category.  Sorry it took me awhile to get this answered.

Thanks Grizzly. Brother King has moved on to other shooting sports, and those on the Magnificent Seven are not eligible. Our thought on the Magnificent Seven is that just being a part of that is recognition enough.

I would nominate one, Boothill Bandit. He got me started and is still helping me out a year later with whatever I may need.  Advise, tips, ammo, even guns. He definitely lives up to the classic cowboy spirt.

 I would like  to nominate Augustus Goodnight of ACSA,  A real Classic Cowboy who always goes above & beyond to help others in the world of Cowboy Action Shooting. He has been in this category for some time always dressing the part above & beyond and  is on the board of  Arizona Cowboy Shooter Association as Vice President. He really is a Top Gun & all around classic cowboy & proud to say a fantastic individual & true friend to all.

Comes now with sad news that Augustus Goodnight is part of the Mag 7 & he states he is not eligible for this nomination.

 

So I will have to withdraw my nomination for him. He would have been a good one my friends..

I nominate Sixgun Seamus.

 

I shot CC for the first time this year at Indiana State and had the great fortune of being assigned to his posse. He was an excellent posse marshall and he went out of his way to talk shop with me about what has and hasn't worked for him while shooting CC. I came away from that experience knowing that I had found a home in the CC category.

 

I look forward to competing with him for many years to come.

I'm aware of that, but typically they announce the winners ahead of time so that they can make plans to be at WR for the presentation.

Slim - Dragon Hill Dave said they were going to try and make their selections by Comin' at Cha.

 

No clue if they have or not.

 

I'm hoping to hear soon though, cuz depending on who it is, I may want to make plans to go to WR so I can be there for the presentation.

We have our winners! The Magnificent Seven pondered long and hard on this (mostly long). But our Classic Cowboy/Cowgirl Shootists of the Year for 2019 are Stirrup Trouble and Mattie Mahala West. Congratulations to the winners and to those who were nominated. All of them are special, but these folks stood out for a number of reasons. Come celebrate with us at the Classic Cowboy dinner at Winter Range when we award them their buckles.
