Day 2 Siege of San Juan

Up bright and early again this morning, we headed out into another glorious day of sunshine and high altitude air. Was a little cooler this morning, requiring gloves between stages and with a light breeze blowing up later it was almost time for a jacket.

We finished out the final 6 stages today and seemed that everyone was in the same boat when it came to degree of difficulty and misses.

This was a challenging match, to aim and acquire. Targets were a little small, awesome shapes and further out. So yes, you really needed to be on the ball.

The stages were fun, plenty of movement with a little bit of thinking in the mix.

After lunch the shoot out was on with Mesa Belle and Bulldog Ric taking out top Ladies and Mens. Congratulations to you both!

Back to covered area for awards which went pretty quick. If I can count correctly, 13 Aussies were at this match (129 shooters participated) with 6 of us placing in our categories!

Jack was 1st place in Elder Statesman and finished 9th overall.

I finished 1st place in Lady Wrangler and finished 7th overall.

Men’s Overall and Colorado State Champion was Cobra Cat and Ladies Overall was myself, with Lefty Jo as Ladies Colorado State Champion. Congrats!!

Ladies Colorado State Champion, Lefty Jo
Mens Overall and Colorado State Champion, Cobra Cat
Ladies Overall, Kathouse Kelli

Again we had an awesome posse and it was so good to catch up with so many we hadn’t seen in some time and making friends with new cowboys and cowgirls.

Thanks to all those who help out with San Juan Shooting Range and Siege @ Mission De San Juan.

Siege of San Juan

Day 1 of the Siege/Colorado State Championships kicked off this morning with the pledge, prayer and the firing of a bowling ball out of a canon. You can’t even see the ball when its in the air if you don’t pay close attention to the trajectory of it!

The skies are blue, the wind is light and we are ready for 6 stages. You need to aim! These targets are smaller and a little further out there.

Suffice to say it wasn’t exactly the greatest of days but I had some really awesome rifle runs! (Always take away the positive!)

We have a great posse with Babe Ruthless and Union Jack (our gracious hosts for the weekend), Burgundy Ballou and Ric-A-D-Split, Bijou Blade and Tolinka, Sixgun Louie, Sam Balin, Section Hand, Rufus Thornton, Lucy Trigger, Gateway Kid and of course Jackaroo and myself rounding out Posse 7.

There is lots of movement on these stages and a few you really need to think about but all in all they are good. Everyone is in the same boat!

Sixth stage done and its time to pack up, have lunch and socialize with others hearing their triumphs and woes of the day.

Bring it on tomorrow for the final 6 stages!!

San Juan Range

Montrose, Colorado – San Juan Shooting Range this year host the Colorado State Championships 2019.

The stages are set and were written by Cobra Cat.

Range is looking great with some touch ups to props and new building improvements.

Bit of perspective on the cowboy and Indian targets with Jack in the thick of things!

The newest edition to the range is the gorgeous mission that we will shoot out of the inside of it. Just spectacular!

And of course, what better backdrop than the snow covered mountain range beyond.

Registration and side match day today!
