WAC gunfighters make KY aware that we are here in Florida.

The second  cowboy fast draw club in the state of Florida was formed in the autumn of 2013 and titled the Flatlanders  Shootist Society. This past weekend, as Hurricane Irma was wreaking havoc on our state, four gunfighters from the Flatlanders made the northern trek to Hartford Kentucky to compete in the Kentucky state championship of cowboy fast draw. Here are their accomplishments:

Hafta B. Fast……..2nd in shootist, 3rd in catagory and 33rd overall men

Seminole Slim………7th in catagory, and 18th overall men

Yusta B. Fast……….3rd in catagory and 29th overall men

2buck Chuck……….5th in shootist, 1st in catagory, and  4th overall men

The sport of cowboy fast draw has doubled in membership since the inception of the Flatlanders, as is expected to double again in the next sixteen months. The Outdoor Channel will be covering our  world championship in October in Fallon, Nevada, which always gives rise to the increase in membership through their fantastic exposure of our sport.

 

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
