As Bristol is running their special :shellssm1:  "Throwdown Match"  :shellssm1: on Aug. 30th, we will run the Scholarship Shoot on the 29th.  No sense competing with each other.  Dice and I will be putting our heads together to come up with what we think will be a good shoot, but you know how convoluted those "Southern Boys" can be, so it might be worth coming out just to see which of us is still standing.  

Seriously, as this is the first time we're doing this I would like to hear from the posse as to any suggestions they might have regarding the shoot.  :clapping:  


On another note we are now hoping to get the splatter shields up between stages by the next shoot and this will hopefully eliminate what remains of any problems with that issue.  Improvements happen as the shoots provide the capital to make the improvements.  :good:  

Thank you to Stoney Mike for another good shoot last Saturday.  Managed to hold off the rain till we were done so I'm thinking we use him when Coot ain't available.  Without his and Dice's urging I wouldn't have put the cart together. :mr47_04:

:oops: Well I had a nice copy all set for post and then I deleted it somehow... :crazy:

Let me try this again.  With a little luck we should have some flyers announcing the scholarship shoot at our next regular shoot this week end.  This year has seen competition from many fronts regarding our shoots so please take a few flyers with you to other shoots and help get our attendance up for the charity shoot.   :clapping:  

Also, any appropriate door prizes will be happily accepted for this shoot (the charity shoot).  We'll be announcing other goodies as they firm up and get added to the mix.  Believe that DD should be posting our stages for the next shoot today and the next issue of the Gazette will probably come out after this next week end.

I wish to confirm the rumor that one of the side match prizes is a

HALF OZ. PLUS GOLD NUGGET

That the gentlemen shooters could put on their watch fobs or the ladies could wear as a pendant (if your chain is strong enough to carry a half ouncer).  

"There's gold at that there match!"

Let's see.... at $1000 an ounce, that would be worth about $500 unless it's that same stuff you sold to me.  :pokey: :pokey:

Sorry DD, but this will be 14kt and as such the "melt value" will be in the neighborhood of three hundred bucks.  That being said, it is in the process of being manufactured and I can tell you that retail would probably run between six and a thousand, depending on where and who you had it made by and then purchased.

We'll have to post some pictures after I get it done.  My gold smith is sometimes a little slow and I made the mistake of telling him I needed it by the end of next month.  

P.S.  Pure 24kt would be too soft to wear.

Just for clarification if you don't know the details, the SASS Scholarship Foundation is a non-profit, tax exempt corporation whose sole purpose is to provide financial assistance in the form of scholarships to deserving SASS members in pursuit of higher education. I believe that Justice Lilly Kate is deeply involved in the program.

Tomorrow or the next at the latest I'll post a better explanation about how the side matches will be run and the prizes for each. :clapping:

Currently a little rough around the edges  :wacko: and don't know if I would make much sense trying to explain tonight.  

Also, had DD take the nugget pendant so I believe that we can expect a picture posted here within the next couple of days. My efforts with a camera just didn't work real well.  At least we got some positive comments about the little bauble at the shoot today.  For those that saw it today, it couldn't hurt to pass on what you think :w00t:  to the shooters who were unable to attend today.
