AThank you for coming to the Fort Dalles Defenders last match at the "old range". We're going to be working hard to secure another place to shoot and hope it is soon so we can continue to host the SASS NW BP Territorial Shootout for you.
We had a great time, the weather behaved nicely (for The Dalles), Friday was even Sunny for the Plainsman event, and everyone said they had a lot of fun. Lots of happy comments on Jitters stages being challenging and loads of fun to shoot and of course there was no problem seeing the targets through all the Back Powder due to the nice breezes. There were five shooters who cleaned the match, Blackie McIver, Crisco, Jess Ducky, Shot-Z-Lady and Tex Dover. Congratulations to you for the fine shooting. We had 39 shooters and 20 categories with the largest being seven in FC-Gunfighter.
The Saturday night Potluck was delicious with all the great food that was brought and we all BBQ'd our own meat and helped ourselves to the goodies. Thank you for all the yummy dishes, dinner was terrific.
Thank you also to all who helped set up and take down, you make our work easier and you are all appreciated. We'll keep in touch to let you know how the search for the new shooting range is going, keep us in your prayers and your fingers crossed. We have high hopes and will work hard to make it happen.
You are the greatest!!
