Jack and I headed south to Texas over the weekend to visit with the Texas Ten Horns. It was a great weekend and a good opportunity to get a decent practice in for the upcoming SE Regional.
After having both barrels of my shotgun going off at once on the odd occasion (and I was starting to get good at ignoring it and keep going) it decided to totally give up the ghost with a piece inside that connects the butt stock to the rest of the mechanism, cracking and breaking. Oops!
Thankfully Roy's Creek Dan was able to work his magic and fix it for me and we should be back in business.
We got the gear packed up, Jack organised some Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale to be delivered to the match, car projects are in and we are ready to head out for Memphis/Lakeland, Tennessee.
It is an overcast day but a good day for travelling. Across Oklahoma, into Arkansas and eventually into Tennessee.
Car project achievement today – hand stitch two edges to corset. Put lacing in – check! Make hat base of buckram and wire – check! Raffia needs to be damp so it can be shaped before I can proceed with that.
We've checked in to the hotel and are ready to head to O'Charley's and meet up with some other cowboy's and cowgirl's.
Tomorrow is match check in, clinics, side matches, warm up etc. It should be good! We are ready for the SE Regional hosted by the Memphis Gunslingers!
Have a great time, wherever you may be shooting or relaxing this weekend!
P.s. It's a day or so late!!
