On Saturday, the 25th, eleven shooters attended the Rangers April, 2009 match.  Match Director The Powder Wash Kid used the match to test stages that will be used next month during our Annual Where the Old West Stayed Young match.


Set-up was done on Friday afternoon and take-down right after the match with everyone pitching in.  We were finished by 1:00PM and pretty near everyone headed for the gun show.


Scrap Iron from Steamboat joined us again and along with Colorado Hank, Soda Creek Jack, The Powder Wash Kid, Sidewinder Sadie, Snowy Creek Angel, Evil Twin, I B Oneeye, Broken Spoke Colorado, That Away Gal and Sagebrush Burns made up the April posse. 


Regular monthly matches will continue on the fourth Saturday of the month, June through September.  Our schedule for 2009 follows:

            May 23 & 24 – annual “Where the Old West Stayed Young” match

            June 27 – monthly match

            July 25 – monthly match

            August 22 – monthly match

            September 26 – monthly match


The theme for this year’s annual match will be the movie “Maverick” and we’re looking forward to having some fun with Bret and Annabelle and the rest…  To contact match director The Powder Wash Kid, send your e-mail to: 


We are always on the lookout for ideas for stages and side matches for our monthly and annual matches.  If it can be done safely and won’t contribute to economic disaster or illegal immigration we’ll likely give it a try.  Keep up with the Rangers on the Bears Ears Sportsman Club (BESC) web site at:
