We are implementing a new system on the website to keep more people informed when updates come out. You may see some new email from the WAC with the content of any new posts to the website.

Summer is here and Range Officers are thin. It’s getting hard to keep the public line open. The weekends seem to be the problem. It’s understandable that people want to be with their families, travel for the summer and more. All we ask is that if you are in town and you have the time, please step in and schedule to help out at the public line. Mike is working overtime every week to get volunteers for the weekend shifts.
If you would like to see how many you have scheduled, click here for the log of scheduled RO Duties.
With all the northern WAC members returning home for the summer we have a shortage at the public line. We need volunteers for the summer months and we have been short lately. Check the schedule every week to see how you can help out. Thanks from Mike Smith!
Every month we have our general membership dinner and meeting. Come on out to here the latest about your club!
Yeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw The inaugural, history making

The results for our gunfighters that warrant mention are as follows:
Golden Guns………Yancy………………….. 2nd place
Old Timers…………Yusta B. Fast …………1st place

Mens 49r…………..Hafta B. Fast…………..6th place
Shootists…………..Yusta B, Fast………….3rd pace

Men………………..Hafta B. Fast…………….12th place
The match was a very successful in representing the sport of
cowboy fastdraw in the State of Florida. Especially when one considers that the very first Florida club did not even exist just twenty-seven months ago. We are now on the threshold of starting the FIFTH CFDA club in the state. In addition, over $1000 was raised for the Shoot for the Stars youth shooters program !!!
Congratulations goes out to all top placers and a big THANKS
goes out to every gunfighter who participated, for without their
participation, there would be no contest.
Participants from as far away as Idaho were in attendance and
the BOSS couple of CFDA; Quick Cal and Alotta Lead were here to show their support for the beginnings of cowboy fastdraw in the state of Florida. Twenty gunfighters from the state of Virginia were here as well as shooters from AR,CO,GA,ID, KY,TX, and a few that I know I have failed to mention. Many old friendships were renewed and many new friendships were created. Friendships are the big draw to the sport of cowboy fastdraw, and the helping hands of all who participate makes every function a success.
Come join the Wyoming Antelope Club Black Powder Shooters this coming weekend for our annual Spring “Fun Shoot”. Once a year we ditch our usual bullseye targets and shoot a variety of fun targets that are both entertaining and challenging. Splitting playing cards, shooting at dangling wine corks and plastic water bottles full of red Kool-Aid are among the events. These targets tend to reward the lucky as well as the expert so everyone has a good time participating.
If you are a new shooter or experienced with muzzleloaders you are welcome to join us. Even if you have never shot black powder before come and watch the action and we will be glad to help you get addicted to this exciting shooting discipline. We welcome all levels of shooters at our events, beginners are welcome and it is a great place to get solid advice about black powder cleaning, maintenance and most important, safety from experiences shooters who will be more than happy to help you out.
We start at 8:30 at the Tadder Bullseye range this Sunday, April 26. Come join us!!

On 3/13/2015 the Wyoming Antelope Club was honored to host an archery fun shoot for Dr. Jeff Sourbeer of Turley Family Health Center and the group of interns. Archery Discipline Leaders Dave Fessenden and Rick Clemens oversaw the shoot and assisted with advice and instructions in the archery discipline and were very pleased to see the amount of interest shown in the sport that they hold dear to them.
We hope they will come join us again soon
