Whispering Pines Cowboy Committee Newsletter

February 6, 2011

February Results

Attendees: Mac Traven, Bonnie Lass, Red Beard, Seneca Lake and T.W. Reynolds

We met at Mac and Bonnie’s house to discuss what we need to do this year to continue to grow our club. Due to a shoulder injury Mac Traven will not be building targets. Mac Traven’s shoulder is healing. We need assistance with target building. We will definitely be building target stands during the March meeting. Please come and help with your club!

February Notes

We will be working on making legs for targets that were donated this year so that they will be off the ground. T.W. brought bed frames to cut up and use for this project. Thank-you, T.W.!

We decided to add a big bore and derringer using stage to each match so we can use them if you have them. Derringer scenarios will always have the derringer off the clock and it will be a bonus if done. The stage with the big bore, will have one shot that you may shoot with a big bore rifle or single load your main match rifle, it will be on the clock for everyone, and it will be a bonus. These will not be used during the Ambush at Hickory Ridge.

We have Custom Catering to do the catering for our cowboy feast at the Ambush at Hickory Ridge.
