Well the weather proved to be much better than it had been and provided a good day for shooting. We had 17 shooters and really hope to see more next month. But with that being said, the next match is scheduled for Sunday, April 1st, which also happens to be Easter Sunday (and April Fool's Day), we understand if many of you have other plans but will be happy to see those that want to come out and shoot.
We are making some changes to our Annual Shoot scheduled for the first weekend in June, due to the lower number of shooters in the past few years. We will be having a 2-day shoot with long range and side matches on Saturday and 6 stages on Sunday. More details will be provided in the next couple of months as they are cleared up.
As far as the schedule for the rest of this year at Higginsville, we will NOT be having any early start times in the warmer months. We are going to continue with the 9:30 shooter's meeting, shoot at 10:00 for the entire year. With any luck, Mother Nature will be cooperative in that she will wait to turn up the heat later in the day!
Although Lonesome Ryder and Cherokee Half Breed have chosen to not continue at Pioneer Gun Club, someone else has stepped up to run Cowboy matches there.Â They will be shooting on Saturday March 31st, and I am assuming with the same starting times as before, shooter's meeting at 9:30 and start shooting by 10:00.Â Please consider showing them some support as things get going for them.
Until next time,
Schnickelfritz and Brassy Heart
