May 2024 Newsletter

On May 30, Texas Rooster, aka Fred Hill passed on. He was a founding member of TRR, serving as our president from 2012-14. He was a hard worker who did whatever was necessary to make our club what it is today.

April 2024 Newsletter

The Texas Historical Shootist Society held Trailhead last weekend. It
was also the Texas State Rifle Association’s Cowboy Action Shooting
Discipline State Championship. They put on a very nice match with good
target placement, good sweeps, and great scenarios. The entire match
went very well. I encourage everyone to add Trailhead into your 2025
match plans.

March 2024 Newsletter

It was so good to get back out on the range after such a soggy month. It
was certainly a little cooler than I expected. But it wasn’t raining……

February 2024 Newsletter

As your TG I would like to update you on the recent vote regarding 3
changes to the SASS official rules. Yours truly voted twice representing
both the Thunder River Renegades and the Willow Hole Cowboys.
All three passed with Yea/nay vote as follows:

January 2024 Newsletter

For me CAS has always been an opportunity to; relive a little of my
childhood, not think about work (which I do constantly), see my friends,
and try to relax (just a little). CAS is both a competitive sport and a non-
competitive pastime.

November 2023 Newsletter

Our club has been blessed with a group of worker bees that keep us
up and running but once a year we call on the entire membership to come
out and help keep our range in tip-top condition.

October 2023 Newsletter

Each year we have a drawing for a
free entry, $125 in value, to our annual match: Last Stand at
Thunder River—a Salute to the Series Yellowstone—this is the
premier SASS event in all of Grimes, County, Texas.
The pool for this drawing is all the members that had at least
one clean match in 2022.

August 2023 NEWSLETTER

Tombstone Lawdawg was recognized for his support in the construction of the Tombstone Jail building. At the July 22 match, the club presented TLD with a plaque thanking him for his financial support of the Stage 3 building. If it were not for members like TLD, we would probably be shooing off bales of hay out in the open under the hot Texas sun.


The Ironman has come and gone, and all the participants seemed to enjoy
it. At least the comments I heard were positive and nobody came up to me
complaining about how they hated it!

April 2023 Newsletter

The TRR and Willow Hole Cowboys mini-Ironman is fast approaching! It
should be a lot of fun and frivolity over two days with your best buddies. You
can register on the day of the match, but it would be greatly appreciated if
you would let us know ahead of time if you plan to attend. That makes it a
lot easier to have the correct amount of lunch fixin’s on hand.

March 2023 Newsletter

TRR and Willow Hole Cowboys have wanted for some time to put on a
combined match to provide some variety and encourage further
participation in both clubs. When TJD brought up the idea of a mini-
Ironman for TRR, we immediately twisted and mutilated his idea and
thought it made a great opportunity for our joint match. We hope you find it interesting and attend.
