As many of you are aware, our club has not had an annual match for a few years. In 2015, we are planning on changing that, with a twist. Rather than try to take on a huge multi-day match, we are going to do a one day, eight stage match with a theme. The match will be on October 18, 2015, and we look forward to having you one the range with us for a day of playing cowboy.
Of course, the theme for this year is the hero of all of us…John Wayne. All stages will be based on a different John Wayne movie, and the name of the the match is:
The 2015 Iron Duke Match
The movies we have chosen for this match include the following:
- Angel and the Badman
- El Dorado
- The Alamo
- The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
- The Searchers
- The Shootist
- The Undefeated
There are also a couple of twists to this match. One stage is shotgun only, and one stage has some rifle knockdowns. We guarantee that you will have a blast!
All SASS rules apply, and we will be giving awards to the top three in every category. SASS membership is recommended, but not required. However, in the case of a conflict in cowboy names, the registered SASS name will trump, and the non-SASS member will need to pick a different name.
Costs for the match are very reasonable, $50 for adults, and $35 for youth. Lunch will be included. As long as everyone cooperates in policing brass, this will not be a lost brass match. The only exception would be if time is running short and shooters are not helping to police brass. I am sure we can work this out so people can get their brass after they shoot.
Entry forms will be available soon. Get your entry in early, as we are limiting the entries to 75 so we can make sure to complete all the stages and give awards in a single day.
See ya then, pilgrim!
