2005 was the first year for EOT at FR. It was over the last weekend of April. Yes, there was a light dusting of snow early on side match day.

The snow was gone by mid morning and it go a little muddy. The weather for the rest of the match was very pleasant. Our range in Cheyenne is the same elevation, just 600 miles further north, I thought the weather was wonderful at FR in April.

Constable...if it was not the 2005 EOT, then it was most likely the 2007 Buffalo Stampede (State Match back then) held the 3rd weekend of April (around the 24th...we spent many anniversary there)

We had a beautiful day of shooting, then Sat night as we all headed in to the Belle Union for pot luck, it started a crazy blizzard!!!

The set up of the wagon was during that match as well...retrieved the shotty from the back.

Since a Texas star was being shot, I would presume it was set up for a Wild Bunch match at the time.

good luck, GJ

Didn't we shoot the star a couple of matches back then?

Could it have been "Smoke In The Valley", 2004 ? Although I think it was somewhat deeper snow , and was the day before the match started.

Mud was quite deep , made my big old guncart seriously hard to move around.

I think Sue is right Buffalo Stampede it was cold and the snow fell sideways.

It did snow at the first EOT at Founders Ranch in 2005, and sleet, and rain, and had mud. Had a Great Time and purchased a wool confederate great coat from Coon Creek and stayed warm the whole match.  Still have that coat. :rolleyes:

I don't think there was any WB other than on club levels at that time. WB officially started 2008, or around that time?
