The February fast draw monthly gathering of the Flatlanders Shootist Society is scheduled for Sunday, the 7th. Sign in is from 9am to 9:30am. Safety meeting at 9:45 and gunfights start as soon as rounds are drawn. Two elimination rounds at each distance of15, 18, and 21 feet, with no X-out format, and shoot-off of the top five survivors of the elimination rounds.
Match fee is $15
Be there or be somewhere wasting your time not playing with a six-gun.
The day was cool, but very comfortable shooting weather. With only five gunfighters attending, match fees were refunded, and a fun session of practice was had on four targets. It was very easy to expend 100 rounds of ammo. We just played musical lanes and moved one spot to the right after each round.
This was another one of those times where the FUN factor outweighed the competitive one.
Next monthly match will be the second anniversary match with shooters attending from….where-ever.
Wednesday February 10, 6-8pm

Finally ! January arrived and we got to strap on some leather!
The weather man managed to scare of all but the hardiest of gun fighters. Even though no rain fell during the actual match. A small drizzle during set-up and that was it. The sun even managed to poke through for a short time at one point.
The seeding for the top five shootoff was: (1) Silas Leadbetter, (2)Shenandoah Drifter, (3)Hafta B> Fast, (4)Windy Britches, (5) Yusta B. Fast
The final placements were: (1) Hafta B. Fast, (2)Shenandoah Drifter, (3)Silas Leadbetter, (4)Windy Britches, (5)Yusta B. Fast, (6)CT Yankee, (7)El Don Blanco
We were very happy to get to share the day with our good friend from Michigan, Windy Britches, and look forward to the next trip that he and his sweet wife Pokey Dot make to Florida. Our little Pokey Dot was laid up with lower back problems and was unable to attend. We are in hopes of meeting up with them at the Eastern Territorial in July.
Next monthly match is February 7th, and then on to March for our second anniversary match.
