Our first Scholarship Shoot was a great success and we donated over $1,400 to the SASS Scholarship Program! This is a good cause, folks, and we can see the results among our own young shooters. Over the past few years, Leadfoot Lizzie, Sicilian Kid & Pumpkin have received thousands of dollars in SASS Scholarship grants. With the costs of higher education rising every year, financial support from scholarships is a necessity. The Scholarship Shoot is a way to help support the SASS Scholarship Program and ensure the continuation of this excellent educational assistance for our young shooters.

We were rained out last year, so let's try and make up for it this year!

The 2011 SASS Scholarship Shoot will be held on Sunday, July 31st, 2011 and you can download the flyer below.

Would seem that we've gotten a whisper of moisture lately.  But not to worry, Coot has promised we'll get the charity shoot in next Sunday the 31st.  

Something like ten inches of "moisture" at the range in the last twenty four hours.

The Rough Riders will get things in shape for the match and there’s a rumor that Raj from Eagle grips will grace us with his presence.   Also I’m told that he might bring some samples of his new

line of grips.   http://www.eaglegrip...Collection.html

Also believe that one of the premiums in the side matches is a gift certificate for a set of these new grips on whatever gun you believe needs the upgrade.

Also heard that some of our celebrity shooters who’ve been traveling the country collecting belt buckles might be with us for a change.  


The Boy Scouts are planning to be there also so you don’t have to pack a lunch either.  


More as it develops…

Been watching the weather reports and Coot must be working overtime - looks like slight chances of rain - which we will dismiss - and a beautiful weekend!  Can't wait to shoot!

My question is...

Why are you reading this now instead of on your way out or shooting at the match today?

Anyway, if'n you you want to throw a couple of dollars before we send off the proceeds of the shoot let me know and I'll add it to the total for the check we cut.  (If something came up and prevemted you from joining us today.)

Thought I'd attach a copy of the letter from SASS here.  Hope to surpass this amount next year.

Under the "Better Late Than Never" category, I cashed in the Eagle Grips gift certificate I won at the Scholarship Match and got a set of rosewood grips for my Walther PPK/s.  I squeaked in just under the 1 year expiration date for ordering, and with my usual flair for procrastination, I didn't get around to putting the grips on my gun until a couple of weeks ago.

Very Pretty!

Had some made for some of my Italian CZ Clones which Raj won't admit to as they were a hand made affair that he had no CNC for and where entirely hand made.  Purpleheart, I gave him a hunk of wood and the following is what I got back.

Au contraire, Pierre...

I won the dining certificate for Buckinghams Steakhouse at the Grand Victoria Casino at the 2012 Scholarship Match.
(which reminds me, I need to make a reservation before January 31st for that)

I won the Eagle Grips gift certificate at the 2011 Scholarship Match.

I won the gold and diamond nugget at the 2009 Scholarship Match.

Snidely Whiplash knows how to get the loot - attend a Good Guys Posse Scholarship Shoot!
