LastFrontierAug2012.jpg (146240 bytes)Once again today's weather was great and we were honoured to have with us two visiting International shooters and by their comments I believe they are going to stay. We were treated to a walkout stage featuring a two boot scenario as well as four other easy shooting stages and you know what amazes me is that there are never any complaints from the not so good of a shooter and I guess that they always have the most fun, just take time to ask them. As I say this memories come flooding back of our member One Armed Bill Wilson now deceased, who never complained, but acted always in the Spirit of the Game, always played out the Game to whatever was asked and always kept smiling. Thankyou Bill for the many things you taught me that I thought that I couldn't do, and for giving me the courage to say the words that had to be said.
Looking forward to meeting you all at Cowboy 12 Doc Holiday Memorial "Dead Man's Hand Shoot" 1st & 2nd.September,2012.

For those that do not know the funeral of Stumpy aka Ken Boreham took place in Gympie on the 18th August,2008. Stumpy was a very active Cowboy Action shooter in past years, with running shoots and Annual Club Shindigs. Stumpy went with us to End of Trail California U.S.A. in 1998.
