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
-=> 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
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
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 email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
