Monthly Match - October

WELL HEY HOWDY THERE BUCKAROOS!!! This here’s yer ole pard, Doc Silverhawks, with a reporting of the goins on at our High Desert Cowboys monthly match fer October.

Well, Halloween was almost in the air but, we missed it by a smidge when our own Southworth Kid was unable to make a showing with his o-ridge-in-all Halloween Stages. Southworth has a very demanding job and we certainly can’t fault him fer that. The Cowboys prevailed however, as no less than twelve shooters turned out to share in one of the most beautiful mornings that a body could imagine. Mild temperatures and calm winds were the order of the day, makin a body just plain thankful to be alive. With everybody in great spirits, our own Mojave Bob painted all of the steel Pumpkin Orange so’s we could make the best of it, as it were, and our new compadre, Oki Steve showed up in Halloween Costume, provin that the Spirit of the High Desert Cowboys is un tamable. All in all, we shot four fun filled stages that had us movin, loadin on the clock, and more. What a great morning we all had! After we was finished givin out prizes like a box of shotgun shells, a book chuck full of Louis L’amour stories, and such, we all headed over to our favorite Cantina where we shared in an excellent lunch.

Well sir, ifen ya ever wondered, just what the heck all the fuss is about with these danged Cowboy Action Shooters, or ifen ya just wanna come up and watch fer yerself, you’d surely be more than welcome. So, until next time, keep yer horse well fed, say yer prayers, and I hope to see each and every one of you, “On The Range”.

Yer Pard
