November 2016 – Raid Report

Raid Report 11-27-16

What a pleasant fall day we had on Sunday.

Many thanks to Rooster Ray, Major Mishap, and Sage Siren for setting up the match. Rooster Ray has a growing knack for creating stage scenarios. He certainly believes in “action is our middle name”!

You never know who might show up at a cowboy match. It was really good to see Zack McGee, Silver Buck Chuck, Kid Romeo, Chicken Scratch, and Rock n’ Rob! All of these guys have been regular shooters over the years, but they’ve been scarce lately. 

Congratulations to Little Dead Drewster for the only clean match and his 5th Overall finish.

Wiregrass Willie’s rifle rounds and shotgun loads were powerful enough to almost knock over the whole target stands!

El Q Jones proved that he can shoot different guns at every match and sometimes even on every stage. This time he had Schofields!

A reminder that there will not be a Raiders match in December as the 4th Sunday falls on Christmas Day.

Be sure to send in your applications for our first Annual Match: The First Ride of the Roughshod Raiders. The date is January 28th, 2017. That weekend is the 4th Saturday, but the 5th Sunday of January. We have 43 applications already. One thing is for sure, there will be plenty of shooting and good food afterward. Check our website here for the application and more information.

Here’s hoping everyone has a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

See you on the trail,

Delta Glen

October 2016 – Raid Report

Raid Report 10-23-16

The weather was perfect. Low humidity and mild temperature. It was a fine day for shooting.
There were 10 knockdowns for the rifle on Stage 1 and 10 knockdowns for the pistols on Stage 6. Any kds left up could be made up with the shotgun. But there were a select few who cleaned the pistol knockdowns without need for makeups. Congratulations to Mustache Greg, Santa Fe River Stan, and Jay Bird Blue (who did it with cap and ball black powder pistols!!).
Many thanks to Major Mishap for restoring and improving the 6 shotgun targets that were damaged in Rod’s fire. They will come in handy in January.
It was good to see Black-Eyed Susie, Bisley, and Marshal Leadready back on the range.
We have 30 shooters signed up for our first annual match on January 28th, 2017. Be sure to sign up soon for what will be a full day of shooting fun. You will get a confirmation email from Gin when we receive your app.
Hope to see you all at Ft. White’s annual this Saturday and at the last Regional in Charleston in a couple of weeks.
