Five Long Nine Cowboys Attended the Midwest (Old West) Classic 2014
All activities and vendors were found ON THE RANGE which made for a festive Old West Town of cowboys and cowgirls having a great time with the theme “Streets of Laredo.” [In fact, the movie was shown outdoors Saturday evening against one of the trailers.]
A side of beef sizzled slowly all day Saturday in preparation for Saturday night festivities which included a Blue Grass band, prizes, give-aways, raffles, and quite a bit of “good cheer” was flowing freely at the picnic tables under the tents with the Saloon stage actually set up as a working saloon with authentic “Old West refreshments” available there.
The weather started out quite cool on Friday for the side matches, but became glorious with sunny 70-degree days and cool nights with no rain for the Main Match on Saturday and Sunday.
Times for the top shooters were 13 – 20 seconds per stage.
Once again, there was no shortage of World, National, Regional and State Champions at this year’s Midwest Classic.
Below are the achievements of our club participants.
