Two monthly fast draw matches in August

The regularly scheduled match will be Sunday.  August 6th. The September monthly match will be held on Saturday, August 26th.

In addition, there will be no practice on Thursday, September 7th. These changes are due to numerous gunfighters representing WAC at the Kentucky State Cowboy Fast Draw championship match in Beaver Dam, Kentucky.

To all who are traveling to Kentucky, we wish you best of times and safe travels. Let’s bring home the wood, boys!

Flatlanders February monthly match results

The February gunfight consisted of nine gunslingers. A lot of cheer and sharing of laughs and friendships.  A  great deal of improvement is being shown by our newer gunfighters. The spread between times and hit ratios is getting tighter and tighter. The closer the time-spread, the better the gunfights get, and we are getting into some VERY tight gun battles. Severel rounds were decided with shot spreads of under .005th of a second, and two of those were .001th. One round was a dead even tie in the low fives.

Very successful September fast draw match

What an awesome day of friendly gunfights ! “Friendly gunfights”; now there is a catchy phrase. Before posting the final results of the shoot-off, I want to lay some really cool numbers on ya:

Of all the recorded hits of the entire match, including the magnificent seven, FORTY PERCENT were fives and under!

Of all the recorded hits of the entire match, only ELEVEN were in the eights and over ! And three of those eleven were slip=hammers.

This was one of the closest matches recorded to date as far as competition was concerned. And one of the most fun. Holding true to the CFDA  motto of safety first, fun second, and competition third. Now for the final results:

(1st)Shenandoah Drifter (2nd)Renegade Dave (3rd)Hafta B. Fast (4th)Ruthless Rick (5th)Seminole Slim (6th)Dough Boy (7th)Ace

Great job gunfighters ! You are giving me something to work at when I make my comeback !                                     Yusta B. Fast
