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, Utah's Single Action Shooting Society (SASS) chapter.

Special to this month... we're baaaaaaack... and we're here to stay!

-=> On Saturday, March 15th, 2008, we met out at the Old Four Mile Hill Range and had a "back to our roots" shoot. We threw lead at everything using a unique collection of staked paper plates, plastic bottles, garden hose, election signs, cardboard cutouts, printed taunting pink bunny posters and plastic Easter eggs! It was a quiet day with many discussions like old times over good food. It was amazing to see how many others were using the other parts of the Old Four Mile Hill Range.

Somewhere in the following week, the Old Four Mile Hill Range was decimated in the interest of "progress and SITLA lands"... so we are happy to have given an old friend a proper send off! No metal targets were harmed in the production of this shoot. But unfortunately, an established shooting range died...

-=> Commissioner's Meeting On Friday, April 4th, 2008. Members of the Balanced Rock Regulators requested and were granted a meeting to discuss the on-going situations at the North Springs Shooting Range.

Kitty Tetons spoke first on the Balanced Rock Regulators' behalf, followed by Dingoman, and before I could present 40 some photographs and audio recordings, the Carbon County Commissioners came to multiple decisions... 1) that the ban against Kitty and I (Bobcat) was removed, 2) that the Balanced Rock Regulators could use the North Springs Shooting Range equally, 3) that we could have promotional material on display at the North Springs Shooting Range, 4) that the third Saturday at the North Springs Shooting Range was in fact ours and that others needed to make special usage arrangements on our day, 5) that we could have a club storage facility at the North Springs Shooting Range instead of having to overload an SUV and a pickup each shoot, and 6) we could do entertainment and re-enactments at the North Springs Shooting Range like we had done for the Economic Development Summit last year!

I could go into further details, opinions, photo postings, audio postings and rebutting of the meeting with the Carbon County Commissioners, but the Sun Advocate Newspaper covered the meeting... so I'll place a copy of the article on our website... that way I'm holding to our "clean slate" agreement.

-=> Our next shoot is Saturday, April 19th, 2008 with setup at 9am and the shooting beginning promptly at 10am. We will be shooting 6 scenarios (depending on range conditions). We will be back at the North Springs Shooting Range. Driving directions will be posted at the bottom of our website's front page. Lunch will be "Standard Potluck" with Kitty planning a special dish for our return to North Springs. If you can't make it to our next shoot, we will be shooting every third Saturday of the month. I know that many people and members thought that we'd still be dealing with Range issues, so you made reservations with the Utah War in St. George on the same day, but if you're not going to the State Shoot, then please come on out to the North Springs Shooting Range, even if you're there for just a few minutes or want to know more about Cowboy Action Shooting. Our next shoot will be May 17, 2008 (unless special arrangements are made) -- come on out and really see the other side of Cowboy Action Shooting!

-=> The Utah War has moved it's location and date! Months earlier, the Utah State Championship is now April 17-19, 2008 and it's being held in St. George by the Dixie Desperadoes. Details and a pdf registration form can be found at the their website! There are also a couple of convenient links on our website.

-=> The Blackhawk War held by the Hobble Creek Wranglers is May 10, 2008 in Springville, Utah. Details and a pdf registration form can be found by contacting, or by calling 801-787-5208.

-=> The "Notice Post." Additional posted notices are at the bottom of the front page of the website. One of our new members is looking for a cheap no-frills lever action carbine/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. New for sale: a pair of batwing chaps for $100. Captain Tim says that he'll modify them to fit all heights of Cowboys and Cowgirls. In the mean time, inquiries or information can be sent to The Wire! and I'll forward it on.

-=> Membership and Fees to the Balanced Rock Regulators -- Individual Annual Memberships are $24 per year with no $8 fee for the month that you join. Family/Household Annual memberships are $42 per year with no $8 fees for the month that you join. 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) usually 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. Examples of the Regulators' membership cards can be found on our website's F.A.Q.s page. Fees cover Balanced Rock Regulator insurance, North Springs Shooting Range reservations, registrations, props, targets, projects and future shoots.

Please be aware that each time you shoot there is an additional (discounted) North Springs Shooting Range $4 fee. Shooters new to the sport of Cowboy Action Shooting get their first two or three scenarios free.

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 your "infernal machine" is 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.
