Colorado Blackjack for being our Top Gun.
Colorado Blackjack, Wild Bob Hiccup and Pinto Being for being the clean shooters of the day.
Tailspin for being our Spirit of the Game (and 5 bonus points) recipient for shooting a stage in his bare feet, and
Colorado Blackjack for surviving candy-bag interruptus while still shooting the stage clean.
Thanks to Junction Jan for bringing out some of her A Girl and a Gun local chapter members to view, and experience our match and to Gateway Kid for mentoring them through some stages. We hope to see them back!
Hope everyone had a good time.

We had a great turnout that included a lot of Cowboys/Cowgirls that we haven't seen on the range for a very long time. It was great to shoot with them and we hope to see them again soon.
Congratulations to our Top Gun, Lefty Jo, and to our three clean shooters, Double Bit, Lefty Jo and Dry Gulch D.
Please ignore the category assignments for several of the shooters. I will need to get their proper categories the next time that they are out to shoot.

Thank you all shooters for coming to, and sticking with this match. Turns out shooting NSA rifles is a bit of a challenge but worth practicing once in a while. A special thanks to the new shooters who joined us and will hopefully join us again for another day of challenges and fun in the future.
