Western States Shoot
High Plains Drifters

 (Click on picture for closer look)

Well another successful Western States Shoot.  The weather cooperated with us and wasn't too hot or cold.
All the RV spaces were full this year, along with a lot on the side.  I would guess there had to be at least 50 or more RV's there this year.

Now we had quite a few vendors and several eating places, food was really great, and they were the ones who furnished out meal for the banquet.

Thursday night quite a few of us went to Quick Cal and Alotta Lead's house for a pot luck dinner.  Had a nice time.  Sorry, I didn't get any pictures of the side matches Thursday but the scores can be viewed by asking Tad Bit and she will post them for you.

I have to limit my pictures this time as I have 77 of them, so most of these will be awards and a few shooting ones.

  There were 10 posses, so I wasn't able to get around to taking pictures of each posse, but you can get your posse picture which was taken by Richard Booth.  Again, check with Tad Bit.

  We had 139 shooters that finished all 12 stages.  We shot both Friday and Saturday.

  We started toward the end, so when it came time for us to move to bay #1, we had a trailer again this year to haul us and our carts up.. 

Friday night was pot luck dinner, and boy was there a lot of food there.  Everything was great.  (30, 32)

After dinner a few of the cowboys got together for their usual poker night (#35, 36). I heard Footloose Phil was the winner of the night, right?

Saturday night was our banquet and award night and again the weather wasn't too bad, a little wind and it wanted to rain, but we lucked out and it decided to move out of our way.  Everyone looked great in the fine duds and the women looked beautiful all dressed up.  Now for the winners of the Best Dressed for the Men it was Happy Hunter

Now for Sunday wasn't present for the Man-on-Man so I don't have any pictures this year.

Well, that is all for this time.  Hopefully we can get more people to attend next year, when they see these pictures maybe they may want to come out.  We all had a great time and I am sure next year will be just as fun or maybe even more fun.
