Looks like May has brought the rain again to the Last Frontier, only 24mm but at least its a start as drought was setting in again. Last May we had a 150mm and a flood. Shooting today was shot under very pleasant conditions, fine cool and cloudy. Pictured, Beth and the steps leading to the shooting position,St.Helens. Congratulations to our shooters that were able to attend the Queensland State Titles. Placings for today's shoot are right here :Match Final Main Match 05012016.pdf

Another exceptional day of shooting with the weather being at its best, clear blue skies and a light breeze made for very pleasant shooting conditions. The shoot was challenging and effective. The next shoot is on the 7th.June, make sure your participant records are up to date as the year ends on the 30th.June.Our top pistol silhouette shooter,Chisholm had a little difficulty with the extra bright conditions at the 150 and 200 metre targets. In the Cowboy Action field there were obstacles for most of us, but everyone was able to pull through and remained smiling at the end.

What an exceptional day after the flooding on Friday,150mm fell on the Last Frontier over the two day period causing flooding to the local area. With all the water receded we were back in action having a fun filled day of Cowboy Action. Renegade Tye called in on his way back from the State Titles, Gold Medal in hand and filled the sky with smoke from his black powder guns. Philin was back and in top form and took out the match, good on you Philin.

Beautiful weather and a great crowd made for an excellent day of shooting. Even the visitor's went home smiling, it was also great to see Siringo burning gunpowder again after his long illness. It's hard to keep a good man down. Everyone that shot today was a winner simply by being here and enjoying the fantastic conditions. Pictured is Renegade Ty, I'll leave it up to you to work out the scenario. Overall winner was Mungo.

Congratulations to our medal winners at the recent Queensland State Titles for Cowboy Action Shooting, they were No Pony
Gold, Little Joe Gold and I D Claire Bronze, plus congratulations to all those that tried just as hard. I found that as I have come up through the years that it doesn't matter what sport you play, most times those less fortunate at obtaining top placing's have put in more time and trained maybe even harder then the actual winners, and most times you will often notice that the media forgets all about these

Congratulations to all of you that attended our first International Shoot here at the Last Frontier. Five stages were shot using two rifles, two six guns and a side by side shotgun. The pressure started to build in the stage at the Shady Ladies with several competitors loosing their footing so to speak and the shotgun targets became allusive. The Single Shot winner went to Mortimer, who incidentally won the most colourful dressed section. The top three placing for the other

Today's shoot was based on the Kilburnie Kid still rides again,well he did....Five proper stages in true Cowboy Action style. The five stages were shot clean by Bad Al Zima. Congratulations Bad Al on a job well done.What amazed me was the lack of attendance by those shooters that couldn't shoot in the hot weather and get dressed up too. Today the weather was absolutely magnificent and suited those shooters. With a cool morning and temperatures reaching only 24 degrees at midday made for the most pleasant conditions possible.

Weather was fantastic. Congratulations to all those thirty-one cowboys and cowgirls that turned up ready for another day of Cowboy Action. As normal five terrific Last Frontier type stages were in the line-up for the days shooting program. Yes, even the Pickerton's were waiting in ambush on the wagon at the Frontier Railway Station, not forgetting to mention that the Sheriff had to keep his head down. Even the Shady Ladies were in trouble..."Yes Cowboy", that's you that I am talking to, 'should have been here to enjoy the fun", well that was until the storm came bringing welcome rain to this part of Queensland. Some continued shooting the rest of us sat in the barn and had a great time chatting. The Stages are now set for next weeks Cowboy Action.

 

It's 8am May 28th.2006 and the first two vehicles pull up at The Last Frontier Shooting Range "Howdy Sheriff" calls Jack the Blade Slade as he steps down from his 4wd. "Gooday Sheriff" called Douglas Mortimer. "I'll get those flags up for you Sheriff, is there anything else that needs doing?" says Jack. "No thanks Jack " I replied "Everything is under control we are in for another great day of Cowboy Action, I.D.Claire has another 5 interesting Stages for us today and the weather is perfect"....
And so right I was, the scenarios were simple yet fast and challenging. Click on the pdf files to check out the scores.
