flatlanders April match

This was one of the most balanced and entertaining monthly matches, that I have had the privilege of hosting .  We have acquired a few new shooters, which have, in all honesty, bolstered my devotion to this sport. Without naming names, I just want to give a big “howdy” to a few gunfighters who have recently come on board, and who have shown amazing promise in their aptitude toward the “cowboy way”. Their desire to “participate”, and their eagerness to improve in their ability and their evident desire to learn the rules and format of our game, are quite inspiring.  In any sport, it is always a “few” who do the “most”. After two years of running a club with a small number of members, it is  very refreshing  to have on board, a few, very inspired, “newbies.”

There was not any one instance during this match that we were in need of anyone to fill any necessary position to run a safe, exciting, and FUNFILLED match. Thank you,all for your attendance. And thank you more-so for the friendships that you have brought to our cowboy fast draw club. Fun and friend-ships is what we are all about.

  1. A reminder to all who are interested. The CFDA Eastern territorial/ Virginia State Championship is coming up the first week in July. Anyone interested, if you need info, feel free to contact us.

Without any further rantings, we will get right to the results of the April 3rd match :

Flatlanders anniversary match is in the books

What a beautiful day for a gun fight. Twenty -three gunfighters lined up to put on a display of wax-slingin’, leather-slappin’, smack- talkin’ FUN that just can’t be found without a six-gun on yer side.

Members of our fast draw family from our local area, the eastern shores of our state, north Florida,and  Georgia were in attendence. Even a few of our gunslingin’ brothers from Virginia left their twenty-degree homeland to make the long ride to support the sport we all love. We had a fair amount of spectator attendance as well.

A great day was had by all. Hand-shakes, hugs, and a belly full of baked ziti, garlic bread and salad, all dun up by our own Wanda B. Fast, who, by the way sends out a big THANK YOU to Pam Suarez, (the wife of our own gunfighter Odessa Tony) for all her help in the kitchen.

To all who managed to share our day, we thank you for your participation. For all who couldn’t make it………you missed a doozy. The food alone was worth the $$……….the friendship was priceless !!!

Flatlanders February Monthly Match

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.

MATCH RESULTS
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.

Cowboy Fastdraw January Monthly Match Results

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.
