slow summer for us cowboy action shooters here in the northwest
Soda Creek Jack was
match director for July and came up with a fun change of pace for the
match. This was the poker match
(probably should have had it in
The August match was
put together by the Powder
At the conclusion of the match we had a work party in the storage barn. BESC is going to put in a concrete floor and we had to clear half the floor for the work to begin. Big thanks to Jon, Stacy, Cheyenne and Summer Ossen, Henry, James and Randall Durkop, R.J. and Marilyn Henderson, Lois and Ron Stoffle, Jim and Sandy Hasler, and Karol and Andy Bullen for all the hard work. Sagebrush Burns announced that he will be stepping aside as Captain of the Rangers at the conclusion of the 2008 season, so we will be electing new officers at the September shoot.
This season’s final match will take place on Saturday, September 27th. As always, we’ll do our picnic lunch with the Rangers supplying fried chicken and everybody bring something to share. Don’t forget your own drinks, plates, napkins and flatware. If you can let Sagebrush Burns know you’ll be there (not required, but helpful) we’ll make sure we have enough chicken for everybody.
We are always on the lookout for ideas for stages and side matches for our monthly and annual matches. The Rangers feel that one of our strengths is that many different folks contribute and that keeps us fresh. If you’ve got something you’d like to try, let us know. If it can be done safely and won’t contribute to run away gas prices or illegal immigration we’ll likely give it a try.
As always, we’d like to hear from you if you have thoughts or ideas to help us do a better job. Keep up with the Rangers on the Bears Ears Sportsman Club (BESC) web site at: www.bearsears.org.
