Congratulations to all the winners. There was some great shooting and even several perfect scores. Since this match has grown so popular, in the future we will have multiple, alternating shooters at the line. We tried this at the end of the match, and it worked out fine. It really helped speed up the match. Everyone had a great time, thank you all for coming out. Tomahawk
It felt like summer, but I’m not complaining. Sunny 80s on a day that earlier forecasts had rain. Twenty-three shooters in two posses came to enjoy this year’s first Peacemakers outdoor match. A new shooter, Duncan Greenwood was added to our merry band, and he shot clean. Good to see our old friends 3 Deuce Cowhand and Cheyenne Cinder.
Top five for the match: Midnight Justice, Flaming Star, Comstock Charley, Long Fingers and Chenoa Tim. Clean shooters: Chenoa Tim, Duncan Greenwood, Flaming Star, Mackinaw Jack, Tomahawk Johnson and Wapiti Waldi. The 50/50 drawing was won by me (first time).
Our next cowboy match is May 20.
On May 6 the Quigley Rifle Match will be held at Darnall’s. See the flier below for details.
Despite the surprise snowy roads, nineteen cowpokes shot it out today. Six shooters completed the match clean: Flaming Star, Katie Twoshots, Marshal RD, Okie Pete, Tomahawk Johnson (on his birthday), and Wapiti Waldi. The top five shooters are: Long Fingers, Comstock Charley, Flaming Star, Wapiti Waldi and Chenoa Tim.
Spring “officially” starts on Monday, so the April 15 shoot is planned for outdoors. April weather (March too) can be treacherous, so adjustments will be made as necessary. If enough people cross their fingers maybe…….
Nineteen shooters attended the Peacemakers’ February indoor match. We welcomed one new shooter: Ellie Mae Dean. Also welcomed back after his accident this autumn was Blind Hog. Keep getting better, BH.
The first four stages were relatively normal, but number 5 was a different story. There were two one-shot bonus (10 seconds each) reloads on the stage and a target sequence that confused some.
Top five finishers were: Comstock Charley, Dangerous Dan McGrew, Mackinaw Jack, Long Fingers and Flaming Star. The three clean shooters: Comstock Charley, Flaming Star and Mackinaw Jack.
Tomahawk Johnson won the 50/50 drawing.
Our next match, probably indoors, is March 18. Hopefully we’ll be outside in April.
The Peacemaker match today attracted 17, including one new shooter, Maraudino (which means marauder). Arizona Buffalo Joe put together 5 sometimes challenging stages that were competed around 11 a.m. Thanks to all for helping with cleanup.
Top five finishers were: Dangerous Dan McGrew, Flaming Star, Comstock Charley, Chenoa Tim and Tomahawk Johnson. A remarkable 6 shot clean today: Chenoa Tim, Dangerous Dan McGrew, Flaming Star, Katie Twoshots, Marshal RD and Tomahawk Johnson.
Our next match will be February 18. We are planning a club banquet & officer elections on March 11 at Bandana’s in Bloomington. More details will be forthcoming.
The McLean County Peacemakers had their year-ending shoot today with 20 cowfolks in attendance. A new shooter, Noname James, was welcomed. Hope to see him often and that he discovers the “perfect” SASS alias.
The group shot very efficiently, completing five stages in only two hours. Top finishers are: Long Fingers, Comstock Charley, Flaming Star and Dangerous Dan McGrew. The five clean shooters are: Comstock Charley, Flaming Star, Katie Twoshots, Marshal RD and Sheriff Boo Boo Bottom. The scores are linked below.
Our first shoot of 2023 will be January 21, same time/same place. Hope to see you then.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from the McLean County Peacemakers
We had Perfect weather and nine shooters that shot in 21 categories. It was a great group and everyone helped out. Special thanks to Arizona Buffalo Joe for setting up, painting and repainting and tearing down all the targets. Thank you to all who attended! Tomahawk Johnson Match Director.
