Doc Syn placed 5th in Cowboy, 31st overall. Cheval placed 4th in Forty-Niner, 21st overall. Striped Buffalo placed 2nd in Cowgirl, 43rd overall.
Also I would like to thank B B Gunner and all who helped to make Border Town such a great time and an awesome shoot for the last 15 years. We tip our hats to you all.

As you can see, an outstanding performance. There was a total of 6 Cowboy Shooters from our club that went to the state shoot and all 6 placed. It was good weather and good food. Stages were basic Cowboy Shooting, nothing difficult. Some of us also placed in side matches but I do not have all that information.

Yes, the weather is nice so we will be going to the outdoor range on Sunday for our first outdoor cowboy match of the year. Be sure to come join us!
If the weather is really nice, we will move the April match to the outdoor range. Be sure to check the website before leaving to see where the match will be held.
