Pop Ups on our web site? Nope. None. Nada. Zilch...

Note: Some current Blocker programs are so overzealous that they mistake the above navigational bar's coding as a pop up. All the above coding does is change the color of each navigational block and add in an arrow -- this is called a "rollover" NOT a "pop up". There is no additional coding and there are no additional ads. This problem does not happen on a Macintosh, nor in Firefox (either Platform). However, MicroSoft is aware of the problem and claims that it'll be fixed in their next update. So surf our site with the peace of mind that the webmaster doesn't give a flying f*^%& what's on your computer or wants to throw in advertising for some lotion, potion or adult toy!

From The Wire!

The official newsletter of events and happenings of Carbon County's Single Action Shooting Society (SASS) chapter...

September 15, 2007... Seven scenarios and lunch went off without any major hitches -- even with members who had the typical last second remembrance of other commitments. With some semi-creative MacGyver-izing we found ways to make damaged range props work. And then there was our club's own props -- one of which was a small sized railroad engineer's cap -- which added to the jovial mood and made for great photos. Those specific photos will appear on future promotional posters and web-site photos. We even broke in the "long-walk 'n shoot scenario" where people requested a park bench midway. Unfortunately, the Fancher Wagon Train still didn't survive the 150th anniversary of Mountain Meadows and we all learned that "Buckskin Ed" was not one of the best Wild Bunch outlaws to copy! A special nod goes to Vanishing Breed who came over the long trail from Crow Seeps. No railroad engineers, bordellos, nor hat sizes were harmed in the production of this shoot.

September 19, 2007... The Balanced Rock Regulators entertained the Castle Country Economic Summit. During the dinner, we talked about SASS and the Balanced Rock Regulators, did a Hollywood Smoky Blank "re-enactment" and Kitty told the true tale of the Castle Gate Payroll Robbery -- complete with how the Carbon & Emery County Posses ended up shooting at each other without any outlaws in the area. Then we did a high speed SASS shooting demonstration and so many people lined up that we had to run two sets of pistols, rifle and shotgun. Dingoman ran people through the shooting of a "typical" 10-10-4, during which I'd be reloading and oiling the other gun set, while Kitty was describing how CAS things worked while entertaining the growing audience. And bless Stargazer for taking lots of photos, because afterwards it was all a blur to us. I'm hoping to have those photos up sometime later this month. Surprisingly the smoky blank reenactment was the best received by conference attendees, quickly followed by people purchasing signed copies of Kitty's new book Rails Around Helper.

We've been told that that night was the best attended and most popular event during the "Spurring Development -- Castle Country Economic Summit." And it was our pleasure to be included in this type of event. If you would like to be placed on a list as a shooter or a re-enactor for this type of event then please e-mail me.

-=> Scores 'n' stuff for September will be available at sometime this week. Visitation to the web site continues to grow and I've heard nothing but good things about it. We welcome any suggestions and contributions about/to the site after you look at it. There have been some good suggestions that I've never thought of that will appear in the next major upgrade of the website. Here is a link to the site.

-=> Our next shoot is Saturday, October 20, 2007 with setup at 8am and the shooting beginning promptly at 9am. We will be shooting 6 scenarios. No shooting hints this time other than to expect that as typical to this time of year there will be winged critters from above and a hangin'. The shoot will be at Carbon County's new North Springs Shooting Range that has been featured in Shoot! Magazine and the Chronicle as well as TV. Driving directions and a downloadable map to the Cowboy Town are at the bottom of the front page of the Regulators' website. Lunch will be "Standard Potluck", Kitty will be making something, even though she won't be able to make it to the shoot because of the first night of Helper's Haunted Museum Tours starting that night. If you can't make it to our next shoot, we will be shooting every third Saturday of the month. Our next shoot will be November 17, 2007 -- come on out and see the other side of Cowboy Action Shooting!

-=> The next Officer's/Shoot Planning Meeting was October 15, 2007 at Dingoman's House. How's that for timely notification! Due to surgical procedures, client demands, web site projects, family visits and the Helper Museum's Nighttime Haunted Tours... great grand plans for the group were discussed involving dipping certain people in Gravy Train and feeding them to packs of rabid poodles and world domination... or club operation and democracy... it all depends on how Kitty writes the minutes... probably towards the latter. For more information (which will appear on-line soon) or to make suggestions or comments call Kitty at 435.472.6666.

-=> For now, I'm just calling it the Bulletin Board. I'm still looking for a catchy name. Right now, I'm posting notices at the bottom of the front page of the website. Anyway, one of our new members is looking for a cheap no-frills lever action rifle that he and his wife can buy... must be in .45 Long Colt. And another member has for sale a Cabela's .50 cal Black Powder Hawken Traditional Rifle, NIB $300.00. In the mean time, inquires or information can be sent to The Wire! and I'll forward it on.

-=> Membership to the Balanced Rock Regulators is $24 per year with $8 per month for monthly shoots, and $10 per month for non-Balanced Rock Regulator Members. No $8 fee for the month that you join. Shooters new to the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting get their first two or three scenarios free. Year long memberships start with the month you join and you get a Balanced Rock Regulator ID card (with your picture on it -- either e-mailed to us or taken by Bobcat or Kitty) the following month, thus proving when you paid your membership and that you are a member! You will never experience any of this I joined in November and I'm being hit up again in January for the full amount problem -- your membership card proves that you're a member for a full year. We are awaiting final pricing information from the North Springs Shooting Range which will mean a future Balanced Rock Regulator fee increase to cover the fees that they pass on to us, but there's also going to be a way to decrease monthly fees... in short, it's just cheaper and more sane to join now as we don't charge shooters for range fees that aren't in existence nor finalized yet.

Not so much as cast into Hell, but choosing to generally saunter downward to where the company is more interesting...

I think that I have worked out most of the kinks with the email list (which seem to be a life form of their own), but if you are receiving double copies or you think someone should be added, or you wish to be removed, or are having problems reading Rich Text e-mails, please don't hesitate to contact me. And feel free to forward this email to anyone who you feel would be interested in having a fun time at Cowboy Action Shooting.
