CLASSIC COWBOY/COWGIRL SHOWDOWN 2024

 

2024 will bring about the 8th Classic Cowboy/Cowgirl Showdown!  The "Showdown" is a competition meant to bring together as many classics as possible to an annual event.  Sometimes we take it on the road, with another club hosting us at their annual event... Every other year it is back home at Butterfield  Gulch Gang out side Chapman, Ks.

 

We consider the Showdown a "match within a match"... and recognize some special Classic Categories (TBD)  Over the past years we have had some great awards, ranging from buckles, conchos, scarf slides, and whiskey!  

 

All these awards have been donated by myself and some of the best Pards a fella could ask for!  They pitch in when they can, and I honestly couldn't have done this without them!  (THANK YOU ALL!)

 

If anybody would like to help out with the Showdown, just give me a holler and we will see what we can come up with!

 

We have had several great turnouts in the years past, 20+ classics at many events.... But have not quite hit my goal of 30+ yet! 

 

Let's make 2024 the year!

 

Take up the challenge and come join us for the 2024 Showdown...

 

"U ain't scared are ya?"

 

The Showdown will be hosted by:

 

Butterfield Gulch Gang

"Siege At Clark's Station"

Chapman, Ks

May 2 - 4, 2024

Question:

 

Any interest in a buckle at the 2024 Showdown for Classic Cowboy Black Powder Gunfighter?

 

Classic Cowboy dress and other requirements, but shot Gunfighter with Black Powder... Sounds fun to me! I have a couple of folks interested... What say you classics, let me know your thoughts.

Major - I will be there in my usual Classic Cowboy gear and I'm bringing my game...somebody has to finish at the bottom to give the others something to stand on!! 

 

I'll be bringing Bandit Belle and the traveling bourbon bar with me!

 

See you at the Siege!!

Definitely going to make this a priority for next season. That will bring me, and julie bean in classic,  and if I can swing it lady Laura and buffalo chip.

Looking forward to it!

I look forward to you all coming and shooting with us!  How is Julie Bean progressing?  She was doing great when I saw her in April.

She is coming along we are working on transitions, she runs that 87 pretty smooth.  Hoping to make the switch to 45 pistols soon. She won a new gun rig at prince of pistoleers made by gibby, she really likes it.

You could have a sub category within your awards but to be compliant with SASS rules shooting revolvers anyone shooting your sub-category would have to enter the match as a Gunfighter.

Major always offers sub categories that the Classics pony up award money for.

 

Henry

Swagger

Old Skool

BP

That is correct, as far as the club awards are concerned they would have to sign up as Gunfighter Category.  

 

But for the Showdown they would be shooting for the classic Cowboy BP Gunfighter Buckle. (Meeting all other Classic Requirements of course)
