a special thankyou must go to Sundance Kid for his sincere efforts last Sunday
with him helping Minnie Ha Ha and myself rebuild the Shady Ladies Facade that
was damaged by the cyclone. No shoot was held that day due to flooding in
certain areas. Congratulations
goes to Chisholm, First place in Pistol Metallic Silhouette with Stoney Bill
coming in at second place. Silhouettes are positioned out to 200 metres. Today's
Cowboy Action shoot was a good one as they all are here at the Last Frontier, it
is a shame that so many failed once again to show up considering the efforts
that are exerted before every shoot to make sure that everyone has the best day
of shooting possible. A very important note to remember here is that " You
cannot hug a memory. " You will find the scores right here : Match Final Main Match 03012015.pdf
Firstly thankyou to those that attended the working bee yesterday, the frame is
now up and awaiting the next stage of its development. The shoot today was
impressive with Mungo taking out first place hotly contested by Sundance Kid and
Mortimer. A great fun day with plenty of laughs and mighty fine shooting was the
order of the day, weather was good but we are now in serious drought conditions
with water diminishing fast and the feeding of stock becoming a very costly
exercise for all involved, some members have already started putting down the
weaker animals. "This is no easy task no matter how tough you are" one
said to me today. You will find the scores right here : Match Final 03232014.pdf
were blessed again today with very pleasant shooting conditions, no extreme
temperatures to stress out the body. Of course the stages were paramount, some
being provided by Bad Al Zima, thankyou. Sundance Kid helped with setting up the
range and was the target carrier, thankyou Sundance, he certainly took some of
the load from me. The overall winner today was Mungo, congratulations. As you
can see in the photo the new Telegraph Office is well underway. The frame was
supplied and constructed by Jack Beaurgard and Philin, thankyou to the both of
The working bee to stand the frame and plus is on Saturday afternoon 22nd.March

Jacks Ass" another fantastic5 stages produced and presented by
our new shooter Jack the Blade Slade. And what a finale for Jack's month of scenarios
plus the weather was a cool 28 degrees and the skies were blue as can be and not
a cloud to be seen.
The Story : Jack Slade was hanged by vigilantes in Virginia City, Montana, on
March 10,1864.Stage 4 required some deadly accurate rifle shooting to save Jacks
Ass. "....you raced from the Jail House door to where your rifle was staged
in front of the gallows, picked it up and immediately took out the five targets
before placing a deadly accurate shot to cut the rope above the noose to set
Jack free.10 seconds bonus was awarded if you cut the rope.
After lunch twelve shooters tried out the new simulated
game clay target range as cowboy clays. Greg
Manning with his side by side short barrel coach gun won the match.

5th March,2006. Jack the Blade Slade
day was another top shoot. A special thanks to Jack for his mighty fine efforts
producing five fabulous stages. Pictured is Stage 3 as seen by the shooter once
he was seated on the Mortuary Wagon. The stage was called "On the
Wagon" and to start the timer the shooter had to yell "The
Stage Coach is running late". The story for the scenario went like
this : "By 1859 Jack Slade had become a stage driver & was a
superintendent of the central overland stage line through some of the most
lawless and dangerous stretches of the route in Nebraska,Colorado and Wyoming.In
1860 Slade supervised the construction of almost 200 relay stations for the Pony
