May 2016 – Raid Report

Raid Report 5-22-16

The May Raiders match was COOL!
 
Literally…the low humidity made for a pleasant day especially for this late in May.
 
But I’m really talking about the match itself.  Rooster Ray’s inaugural match had a cool story line that ran through to the finale on Stage 6.  On Stage 5 he had a no-shoot target overlapping the shoot target which was a nice twist.  There was plenty of movement, plenty of shooting, and plenty of fun.  Ray even had a saddle mounted on a custom stand which featured dual racks for staging/restaging long guns.  It felt like an annual match.  
 
I was so excited after reading the stages that Hawkeye Gin and I rushed back from north Georgia Sunday morning in time for me to actually shoot them!  I look forward to more stages from Ray.
 
Deadly Sharpshooter made the trip back from Georgia as well, but he hit the road early enough to shoot the whole match with the posse.  
 
Special thanks to everyone who helped Ray set up the match on Saturday: Sage Siren (who along with Beck A. Boo also handled sign-in and scoring) Johnny Showchaps, R.P. Slim, Roughneck Rod, BRK, and Tornado Timmy (who also delivered the coolers and drinks). 
 
A special tip of the hat to Wabash Valley Slim who is now the Overall Georgia State Champion!!!
 
I couldn’t be prouder of the volunteers and shooters who make up the Roughshod Raiders.  
 
We will see you June 26th for our next match!
