April 2011


The Rangers held our first match of the season on Saturday, April 23rd.  Although it has been snowing and raining and cold in Craig for most of April, the weather gods smiled on our efforts by being cloudy and reasonably warm.  I B Oneeye came over from Ft. Collins and brought three shooting tables for us to be used instead of straw bales.  They are just the right height, very sturdily built and topped with astro turf.  Thanks John.  We had two new shooters join us – each of them for their first SASS match.  Welcome Jumping John and Big Horn By.  We hope you’ll be able to join us for the rest of our matches.


We had a total of fourteen shooters for four stages; starting at 9AM, setting up, shooting, and tearing down; and we finished before the weather changed.  Stages were simple and straight-forward with enough variety and movement to be interesting and fun.


Next month (May) is our annual match “Where the Old West Stayed Young” and we’re looking forward to seeing a lot of our friends from all over Colorado and Wyoming and making new friends from wherever they call home.  Our regular monthly schedule will resume in June on the fourth Saturday (June 25th) and continue through September.
