Thank You to the Iron Duke Sponsors

On behalf of the Platte Valley Gunslingers and Heartland Public Shooting Park, we would like to recognize two of the major sponsors for the Iron Duke cowboy action match that was held over the weekend. Without their assistance, we would have not been able to give the gifts to our shooters, and there were a lot of smiles on the shooters’ faces this past weekend.


Hornady was very generous in providing enough hats and coffee cups to allow us to present each of the shooters with one of each when they checked in to receive their shooter packets. We received a lot of positive responses from the shooters when they checked in, and on a chilly Sunday morning in October, I saw more than a few in use on the line in the morning. After the shoot, I also saw a lot of cowboy hats swapped out for Hornady caps as people prepared to go home or back to their hotel rooms. Hornady also provided some metal signs for the random giveaways. Thank you for your generosity, and you made quite a few cowboys and cowgirls smile.


Cabelas was another generous sponsor for our shoot. They provided a large number of gift cards, enough to give almost every shooter a gift card to take to their local Cabelas or use online. Everyone that received one of these cards had a wide grin on their face. A couple of the shooters that received a gift card in the random drawing said to me afterward that they loved the gift cards because it allowed them to get what they wanted instead of just some trading stock for the closet. Your generosity was greatly appreciated.

We really appreciated the way these sponsors came out to support the cowboy club, along with all the other shooting sports they support at this venue, and we are lucky to have two local companies that are as supportive of Heartland Public Shooting Park as they are. Thank you again, and we look forward to partnering with you again next year if possible.

We would encourage all those that appreciate the generosity of these two fine companies to thank them by purchasing their products and services
