Two Rivers Posse – Jan. 2, 2021

Attached are the scores from our first match of 2021.
In spite of a chilly morning, we had 19 competitors, with Wolf Taylor and Molly Magoo as the top men’s and women’s shooters respectively.  J.W. Trader, Dragon and Bobcat Bill (returning after a long absence) were the only Cowboys to earn Clean Match pins.  The full rainbow at day-break was good sign for them.
Special thanks to Bobcat Bill, Dakota Gwen, Dragon, J.W. Trader, Molly Magoo and Rum Walker for their help in setting up today’s match and to all who helped move steel after match to accommodate next weekend’s Freeze Arse Rendezvous Trail Walk Match.
Our next match is scheduled for January 24th.  Hope to see you all then.

Tow Rivers Posse – Dec. 27, 2020

Howdy ya’ll,
We had a good turnout today. It turned into a beautiful sunny day and didn’t even have any wind. Good way to end the year. We had quite a few shooters that went home with clean match pins – Cardoso Kid, Rum Walker, J.W. Trader, Wobblin Bob, Sintree Tulait, Shenandoah, Dragon, and German Jim. Good shooting boys.
I’d like to give another BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has been donating their brass cartridges and spent primers. We made another run to the recyclers, and finally had enough saved to order 18 new AR500 targets for the range. It all added up and helped out our club quite a bit. Donations still being accepted and greatly appreciated.
Our next cowboy match will be Saturday the 2nd, and Wild Bunch on the 3rd.
I wish everyone a Happy New Year.

Double-Action Revolver Match – Dec. 19, 2020

Attached are the scores form today’s match.
It was a chilly start but turned out to be a pleasant day for 14 shooters, half of whom shot the match in the “Big Bore” category.  Roger Beckler was a our only first time competitor with his .44 S&W.
Smaller targets presented a challenge and slowed times a bit.  The scores are a presented in a new format, similar to what we use for our SASS matches.  See you all on January 16th.

Two Rivers Posse – Dec 5, 2020

Howdy all,
In spite of it starting out a bit chilly this morning, it turned into a beautiful sunny day to shoot. Welcome back to Wobblin Bob who has missed the last 5 months due to shoulder surgery. He shot the last half of the match with 4 revolvers instead of using a rifle and did great, even shot the match clean, along with Twisted Dog, Shenandoah, and myself. We’ll be back at the range tomorrow for wild bunch.
We spoke to Mudville this morning and he is at home and doing well after his surgery. Slowly getting better.
I hope everyone has a nice Christmas. Our next cowboy match will be Sunday the 27th.
Stay safe.

Two Rivers Posse – Wild Bunch Updates/Reminders (Nov 2020)

Hey Pards,
I’ve got a few things to cover this time…
First I want to remind everyone that we are shooting this weekend. Cowboy on Saturday, and Wild Bunch on Sunday. If you are able to come play please send me an email with your alias and category. Remember to bring your own pen and exact change. With Covid numbers rising we need to be extra vigilant about distancing, hand washing and trying not to touch more surfaces than you have to. Wear masks if you’re more comfortable when on the range.
I will also start accepting dues for Two Rivers Posse 2021 membership this weekend. We are keeping the fee schedule the same as it has been – $25 for individuals, and $40 for families. The monthly shoots are $10 for members and $15 for non-members. It doesn’t take long for that to pay off. Again – exact change please or a check made out to MSI will be fine.
As many of you already know, Rum Walker and I are resigning as match directors at the end of the year. We’ve been doing it for 8 years now and it’s been a good run but it’s time for fresh horses. We’re passing off the reins. Sintree Tulait has graciously stepped up to take over for the cowboy matches, as has Wolf Taylor for the wild bunch matches. Dragon will remain club president. We’ll still be around to help out and I’m sure the transition will go smooth. I’m sure they’d both appreciate whatever help can be offered if you think of a way you might be able to step up and give a hand.
Last.. Manteca Sportsmen was supposed to hold it’s regular monthly membership meeting tomorrow night with the elections for the club officers and board members. Due to Covid we can’t have that large a group meeting indoors so it has been rescheduled for Sunday January 3rd at 11am on the grass outside the old clubhouse. If you’re a MSI member please plan to attend and vote.
That’s all for now folks. Hope to see ya soon.

Howdy all,
Here are the scores from yesterday’s match. Sorry for the delay in getting them out, Rum and I were up at Sac Valley Shooting Center for the Ca State Wild Bunch championship
(great match, if you get a chance you should try to attend next year).
Congrats to J.W. Trader who was the top shooter, and to Sintree Tulait and Shenandoah for shooting the match clean. Our next cowboy match will be Saturday Dec 5th.
I hope everyone has a nice and safe Thanksgiving.

Double-Action Revolver Match – Nov. 21, 2020

We had 15 shooters today for the November Double Action Revolver Match.  There was at least one new participant, who did well for his first attempt at action shooting on steel targets.  Due to time constraints we did not have the “Half Match” which is popular with many of the participants.  Many of the shooters are showing great improvement with more exposure to revolver action shooting but several folks were plagued by ammo and equipment issues today.  In spite of that, every one enjoyed the cool but pleasant weather and the challenging knock-down targets that were part of today’s course.  The next D/A Revolver Match will be on December 19th.
Anyone wishing to participate can contact Mike Maciel (E-mail: sintreetulait@yahoo.com,  Phone:  209-879-3148) for information.
2020 – Double-Action Scores – 11-21

Wild Bunch – Nov. 8, 2020

Hi cowboys and cowgirls,
Well it was quite the windy day at the range. We had to cinch down our hats and anchor all the rugs and saddle blankets. Except for a bit of grit in our smiles, we had a fun day. Congrats to Southpaw Gringo who was our top shooter for the day. None of us managed a clean match although Southpaw and Shenandoah came real close. Our next Wild Bunch match will be Sunday Dec 6th. Hope to see ya then.
