I would like to wish all those shooters that are going to this years National
Titles at Millmerran that you are able to compete to the very best of your
ability remembering at all times that Cowboy Action is just a game and winning
is a bonus. In other words play the game as it is asked and complain none. If
you fine that you are not happy with a scenario or the target layout, I suggest
that you take a good look at yourself as Cowboy Action is not for you, "The
Spirit of the Game" is always paramount.
I would like to add a portion of the Article "Costuming one more time"
written by Tex SASS #4 in the September Edition of the Cowboy Chronicle...it
goes like this "Right from the "git-go" SASS recognized the
importance of costuming. Its one of the things that make our shooting game
unique...and it provides an environment where we can play out our Old West
fantasies and help make America safe for God-fearing families. It's an extension
of the game we played as kids...the only difference is in the price of our toys
It took some of us a while to "catch on, but even in the early days most of
us realized it wasn't all that hard to create an Old West outfit. In those days,
that generally meant a shopping trip to the thrift shop and a little cutting and
sewing when we got home. SASS did everything it could to encourage costuming it
could to encourage costuming, including holding costume contests and in
recognizing costume contest winners on roughly the same par as our shooting
Today it is extremely easy to create a "knock-out" costume...right off
the rack. Either some of our folks still "just don't get it" or they
just do not understand, but don't believe costume compliance is worth the
effort. And, worst of all... some of these folks are winners...folks that should
be setting an example for the rest of our shooters...particularly for our newer
and younger competitors. These are our role models, and some are falling short
in wearing appropriate costumes. In the Shooters Handbook there are two sections
dealing specifically with costumes- the first lays out the costuming
requirements and the second provides a list of outlawed items. If an outlawed
item is worn at the firing line, it results in a Stage Disqualification...and
two Stage Disqualifications are a Match Disqualification."
I would like to personally thank the non club member who wishes to remain
anonymous for taking the time to construct a set of crossover knock down targets
for us. Thank you for the unexpected gift, we tested them today with the full
range of sporting equipment and found them to work flawlessly, thank you.

The weather was one
hundred percent perfect again after last weekends cyclone and torrential rain.
Today shoot was produced by Lady Nell, The County Judge and Sundance Kid.
Thankyou to you all. The five stages were some what different to my writing and
very enjoyable to shoot. Sure one had to think a bit but nothing was too
difficult. I am now looking for someone to write the next five stages based on
the targets as they are set on the range. Now that shouldn't be to hard of and
ask as there are no targets to shift, just write the stages and increase your
enjoyment in the sport.. Click on the pdf file to view todays scores.020907.pdf

Sunday 3rd September 2006. The Doc
Holiday Memorial Shoot. It is already 12 months ago since we lost one of our
finest Cowboys and dedicated Club member. Today we remembered Doc Holiday aka
Frank MacDonald Life Member # 1 some also knew him as Macca.
Pictured Wedding celebrations centre
Doc and Matte Holiday. Doc as most of you will know was a quite bloke. Doc liked to be a real cowboy,
he shot real 45's and shot duelist. During the time he was involved with Cowboy
Action Shooting he manufactured many things for the sport. Ivory grips were his
speciality. He made the Original star badges that most of us wear....he made and
engraved the name tags together with the engraved plates that you did see on the
many trophies at several award ceremonies.
Yes Doc's heart was with Cowboy Action Shooting. He loved to explain to new
comers just what the game was all about.
We must all take an example from
Doc Holiday's experiences because, we don't appreciate the things we have
until we have lost them.
