Howdy Wasco County Shooters,
WOOHOO!! The 2011 Wasco County Shootout is history! What a weekend. Lots of shooting, visiting, shooting, eating and shooting. How good is that? The Dalles weather even cooperated. It was windy on Friday and Saturday (normal, not hurricane) and Sunday was this incredible perfectly beautiful day of Sunshine. No rain until this morning while we finished cleaning up, and it poured!!! Perfect!
We had 71 shooters and all claimed to have had a great time (so far) please e-mail with your comments, we strive to improve and we only received a very few of the comment slips from the packets. I know, you were busy!!!
Top Cowboy is Rick O'Shea and Top Cowgirl is Pinto Annie. Congratulations to you both for the great shooting, the field was tough and you did a great job! There were 10 clean match winners: Bart Star, Buckshot Henry, Jack the Toad, Pinto Annie, Roughstring Rider, Skookum Chuck, Spindletop Mike, Washougal Will, Wiley Jack Hammer and Wilkes. Way to go!!
Everyone seemed to enjoy Saturday evening's prize table and all went home with something nice from The Fort Dalles Defenders. Sunday's ten top prizes were won by Shalako Tucker, Aftrmth, Holly Hills, Territorial Ryder, Runamuck, Sunrise Bill, Raisin' Hell Belle Hammer, Celilo, Roughcut Ruby and Lawman's Bullitt. Our Donors were wonderful to us this year and their generosity is deeply appreciated. Please support them when you get the chance, they are listed on the back of your shooter book.
To all of you who helped us set up, take down, run errands or pitch in with that extra effort that makes these things work, thank you so very much, you are the ones who time and again go the extra mile. A special thank you goes to Sunrise Bill for running the Wild Bunch event once again, you are in a class by yourself!! We're already kicking around ideas for next year, so stay in touch, offer suggestions if you feel like it and we'll listen.
