It’s almost time to wish a Happy Birthday to The United States of America! She’s a ‘young’ 245 years old and looks great for her age. Best way to celebrate is to come out and Shoot at Stuff with your friends at TRR.
Well, Mother Nature won for the last meet. We hope she takes a much needed Siesta for this weekend. We have had quite enough rain.
Club Officer Election Results: the club voted on March 27 for Vice-President and Secretary. By acclamation everyone present (yea, I know it means the same thing) voted to keep Willie Cheatem as Vice-President for another two years. Cheyenne suffered the same fate for the office of secretary. Thanks to all who contributed to their campaign coffers, your gifts will not be forgotten throughout their terms in office.
TRR RO Classes for 2021: we had an even dozen take the SASS RO classes the first weekend of March. TJD was the instructor, host and even provided lunch for the groups. While some of the folks were getting recertified the majority were there for the first time. Thanks to Jack and these members for taking that ‘extra step’ for the club.
Rule Book Change: Shooters Handbook, version 25.1, Jan 1, 2021: Ammo may not be jacketed, semi-jacketed, hollow point, plated, or gas checked. Hollow Point ammo is new to the prohibited list—concern is there would be increased splatter.
Flash: we are going to have a slightly different stage this Sat; this in response to member requests. Think of it as another Beta test event we keep holding—check out the attached booklet for details. While we’ll have a full set of targets at the jail you only will be shooting at the Marshal (pistol) and Buffalo (rifle) targets + of course all 4 shotgun.
I have tried a number of prescription safety glasses but they never are close enough to my regular lenses. After a few tries the costs add up and I go back to my ‘normal’ ones which are are also made of the ballistic plastic but have gaps that have turned out to be too large to keep splatter from getting in.
Wow! What a great couple of workdays. There is so much that has been done over the last few workdays. On our major workday, last Saturday, I believe we had broken all attendance records.
Well, summer is quickly fading into horizon. This means soon we will go back to our regular Cowboy gear. It also means work days will soon be here. If you would like to adopt a stage, there are a few available. There are several items that we will be addressing.
I have been asked about the recent announcement from SASS regarding the decision, effective October 1st, of the board to “to step down from their roles within the organization” and “will no longer play a role in the operations of SASS”.
Note: SASS and Founder’s Ranch are separate private for-profit companies registered in New Mexico. The announcement is about SASS, not Founder’s Ranch.
Hasn’t 2020 been fun so far. Mask, No Mask. Back to mask again. Can’t come here, can’t go there, either. If it were not for making some smoke and the occasional clang, 2020 so far, has had very few good qualities. But there is hope on the horizon. We still have several months of banging and clanging. If I can get out of these seven day a week shifts.
Member Shout-Outs: want to highlight some hard workers on our posses: Cowboy, Three-Finger Jack, Tanner Wright and WildCard Wayne. All four go way past what we expect from posse members.
