The official newsletter of events and happenings of Carbon County,
Utah's Single Action Shooting Society (SASS) chapter.
Special to this month... Pinnacle Peak and
-=> On Saturday, June 21st, 2008,
we were at the Pinnacle Peak Shooting Range using a wide assortment of paper,
cardboard, plastic and steel targets. The theme of the shoot was Outlaw
Training Camp and attacking herds of paper jack-rabbits, followed by the
creation of the new "skill shooting games" of Serpent Golf (shoot
the garden hose so that after a brief flight it lands in a cardboard box)
and Judge Graft's Regulators' N.A.S.A. program (shooting a shaken 2 liter
bottle of pop so that it gets the most height - Judge Graft, the winner,
was estimated to have 40 feet of vertical lift).
Special thanks goes to Malcolm Howard Photography for donating several
hundred over sized cardboard sheets for use as targets. The "King of
the Jack-Rabbits" was not harmed in the production of this shoot and
several new contacts were made at the Pinnacle Peak range...
-=> New Weekends! Due to our bizarre
personal & business life schedules, the resulting schedule conflicts
and that we are no-longer tied to the old range... we are changing weekends!
For this month, we are trying the fourth weekend... possibly a different
weekend next month... we'll let you know as soon as we know. Please check
the front page of our website. If you have a preference, please email Bobcat
and we will keep a tally for the new preferred weekend.
-=> Our next shoot will be Saturday, June
26th, 2008 with setup at 8am and the shooting beginning promptly
at 9am. Based on the weather and an afternoon commitment we will be
shooting 4 (possibly 5) scenarios this month. We will be at the Pinnacle
Peak Black Powder Range using a collection of steel, paper and plastic targets.
Detailed driving directions to this new (to us) range will be posted at
the bottom of our website's front page. Lunch will be "Standard
Potluck." Please be aware that this is a primitive range out in the
desert; so please bring water, tables, chairs, sun cover and lightweight
cowboy clothing if you need it.
Please cast your vote for the new "official" weekend. Our
next shoot will be determined and posted in August -- come on out and really
see the other side of Cowboy Action Shooting!
-=> The Diamond Mountain Rustlers (the Vernal, Utah
group) are hosting a "Shoot Out Cancer" fund-raiser in
October, 2008. Last year, they raised over $3,000 for "Passionately
Pink for the Cure." Check out their web-site for more details!
-=> 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. 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. New members are looking for
reasonably-priced working non-frilly guns in .22, .38/.357 and SxS 20 gauge.
Member looking for used wood non-broken Ruger Blackhawk (don't need
medallion) grips for about $18 each. In the mean time, inquiries, photos
and/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, registrations, props,
targets, projects and future shoots.
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.
