Flatlanders ride to Kentucky

Five flatlanders saddled up and rode to Kentucky to shoot it out with gunfighters from fifteen states, at the Kentucky state CFDA championship. They were: Shenandoah Drifter, Hafta B. Fast, Silas Leadbetter, Wanda B. Fast, and Yusta B. Fast.
They represented the flatlanders shootist society well. Their accomplishments were as follows:

Shenandoah took sixth place in overall men
Hafta took twenty-first in overall men
Silas took third in mens senior
Yusta took third in mens old timer

Wanda gave generously of her time by spending two full days scoring, which was greatly appreciated by the head score-keeper.

Old friends were revisited and several new friendships were created. The weather was spot-on and the match was first class.

3rd of September

Eleven gunfighters assembled on the 3rd of September to display their skill in cowboy fast draw.
We were blessed with an evening that was actually VOID of RAIN.
Although it didn’t actually happen, it seems as though we haven’t had a rain free day in over two months.
Our practice session for the 17th will not take place, as we will be in Kentucky for their state championship match.
Our monthly match for September 26th will be held as planned.
We are working diligently to attempt to run the monthly matches with the use of CFDA software near the end of the calendar year.

June Cowboy Fast Draw

The June monthly gunfighters contest came off without so much as a drop of rain. Humidity was high enough to almost make a human grow gills and the temperatures were a match. But ten gunfighters put boots to the line to see who could get the braggin rights for June.
Good friends from St. Augustine graced us with their presence. Slim Jim Garret and his lovely wife Ruby shared the day with us. Big ole thank yous go out to Ruby for announcing the rounds when all of the match officials were obligated to the line, allowing Wanda B. Fast to carry out the wonderful job of keeping the scores.

The seedings for the top five shootoff were as follows:
1st seed Silas Leadbetter
2nd seed Yusta B. Fast
3rd seed Slim Jim Garrett
4th seed Hafta B. Fast
5th seed Mad Mike Mulligan

The finishing places were as follows:

Cowboy Fast Draw – May Match

Well, we just had one of those times when our Thursday practice and our monthly match fell two days apart.
We had ten gunfighters on Thursday evening, and a few new first-time visitors, who shot our “five for free” introductory offer.
Plus we had a special “win a buck” for the fastest time on each of 15, 18, and 21ft. Win all three and you shoot for FREE. Well, ole Silas Leadbetter, (now known as GREEDY Leadbetter) won em all with a .465, .468, and .443 respectively. So we probably won’t do THAT game again.

For our Monthly match, we had seven gunfighters​ whose places and fastest time are as follows:
1st………………Yusta B. Fast………………………………526
2nd……………..Silas Leadbetter………………………….497
3rd………………Shenandoah Drifter……………………..531
4th………………Hafta B. Fast………………………………561
5th………………Mad Mike Mulligan………………………708
6th……………..Odessa Tony………………………………755
7th……………..Fast Festus…………………………………1037

As usual, or score and pertinent info was handled by the finest little lady on the planet, Wanda B. Fast.

Our next scheduled practice session will be Thursday, June 4th at six p.m.
See ya on the line………….Don’t make us come lookin for ya!

State CFDA Championship
Cowboy Fastdraw

Yeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw The inaugural, history making
State CFDA championship match for Cowboy Fastdraw is in the books !

The gunfighters of the flatlanders shootist society made it
quite clear that they were representing the sport of fastdraw for the
WAC.

The results for our gunfighters that warrant mention are as follows:

Golden Guns………Yancy………………….. 2nd place
Old Timers…………Yusta B. Fast …………1st place
Shenandoah Drifter….2nd place
Mens 49r…………..Hafta B. Fast…………..6th place
Shootists…………..Yusta B, Fast………….3rd pace

OVERALL
Ladies……………..Fast Draw Deb…………5th place
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.

February Fast Draw

Well, as the old saying goes; good lord willing and  the creek don’t rise”…………THE CREEK DID RISE !
Nine hearty gunfighters paddled their way to the February
gunfight of the Flatlanders Shootist Society. Five rounds of
elimination were completed before the creek overflowed its banks and saturated every cowboy boot on the range. There was no shoot-off, but every gunfighter left as a champion just for showing up. A hearty Thank You goes out to each and every one of you.

All five rounds of elimination were shot from twenty-one feet to avoid the down-pours, never taking into account the possibility of three inches of water from under foot.

Fastest time of the day was a .576 by Shenandoah Drifter

Participants and fastest times are as follows:
Fastdraw Deb…………………………..915
Yancy…………………….……………….835
Wolfgang………………….……………..992
Hafta B. Fast……………………..…….644
One I Mike……………………..………..676
CT Yankee………………………………829
Silas Leadbetter………………..……..597
Shenandoah Drifter…………………..576
Yusta B. Fast……………………..…….583

Our utmost gratitude goes out to our statistician and manual laborer, Wanda B. fast, who also adds the “charm” factor to every gathering of the Flatlanders.

Thursday, March fifth will be our next gathering of gunfighters. This is practice night and new shooters are welcome to stop by and get five shots for no charge, with gun, holster, and ammo furnished.
Don’t make us come lookin for ya !
