Out at Longtooth's Horse Ranch, Longtooth and Dastardly Dan have been busy building a fort to use as a prop out at the range. A few photos are below of the progress. They hope to have it out to the range and set up for our September match.

Now for the contest - what to name the fort? Let's hear a few suggestions!  

I'll start it off with Fort Sackett after the book/movie "The Sacketts" written by Louis L'Amour with Sam Elliot and Tom Selleck. I know there are many better ideas out there so lets hear them.

You might consider Fort Burpelson, after the AFB in "Dr. Strangelove". "Course then we might have to have a commander designated "Gen. Jack D. Ripper". ?Think that might match JJ.

We'll let the Rough Riders pick the top five or six names and then maybe put it to a general vote.

When we first went out to Rob's place it was pretty much overgrown with Poison Ivy.  Then after a lot of brushing it out and Huck cutting the berm for us it was solid Limestone.  

Fort Ivystone  


Or maybe as we keep rising from the ashes...   Fort Phoenix.

How about Fort Redoubt?

Its a little different then most and was a common word... and defensive tactic.... in the "old west". The "circiling of the wagons " was an instant, and life saving, redoubt.

[Its doubtless; Custer was redoubtless!  heehee]


See below from Websters

1 a : a small, usually temporary, enclosed defensive work
1 b : a defended position or protective barrier
2 a : a secure retreat
2 b : a STRONGHOLD

PS: I like the previous idea about the trail boss's picking the "best five or six" and then a vote.

Well "Fort No Name" will be a shootable stage this next shoot.  After seeing and shooting it perhaps we'll get a few more name suggestions.  Especially from those that will be thrilled by the ease of shooting through the shooting slots on the left side of the stage.

The Gun Fighters are not going to be happy with us, but they can shoot it double duelist.  So start writing up your complaints now so we can make the adjustments (or not) after the next shoot.  

God I love to stir the pot!

Finally remembered from my school days at S.I.U.  

Fort Defiance, known as Camp Defiance during the American Civil War, is a former military fortification located at the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi rivers near Cairo in Alexander County, Illinois. The strategic significance of the site has been known since prehistoric times with archaeological evidence of warfare dating to the Mississippian era. It is the southernmost point in the state of Illinois. Fort Defiance Park, formerly a State Park, is owned and maintained by the city of Cairo. At 279 feet (85 m) elevation, Fort Defiance Point is Illinois' lowest point.
