« on: April 07, 2015, 07:41:29 PM »
Ya'll come on down and join us for a wild weekend of fast and furious Wild Bunch Action Shooting!!!

The Up the Creek Gang would like to invite you to join us in Lake Charles, LA Halloween weekend.  The stages written by Possum Skinner are fun, challenging, big/close, far/little, runners, fliers, flying pigs, swingers, and did I say FUN!!!  Since it's Halloween...we might even see a ghost gator!  No promises, though.

Yep, that was a good match, well hosted!  8)

Clem, I am planning to be there too, and I'll also bring some BAM.  We'll tempt those cajuns again (and I am one too) with the fine sport of hitting steel with these old bolt actions.  ;)

If at all possible Woody and I will be there. Last year's match was lots of fun and challenging.   Have it on the schedule.

Speed 1911, Speed Shotgun, and Bolt Action Rifle will be held on Saturday after the main match for one hour but before we leave the range to eat lunch. :)

We've ordered some gorgeous buckles!!! They'll go to category winner even if they are from out-of-state. :). I'll post photos of them when they arrive.

GL, those are single gun side matches where speed and accuracy are measured.  There may be at least one magazine change on the 1911.  The match director sets the scenarios.

Bolt Action is Bolt Action Military (BAM) using a military bolt action rifle issued through WW2. 

Rules for BAM are here:

Thanks Grouchy Spike!


Yep, each of them are shot separately and Speed 1911 will be 25-30 rounds, Shotgun 6-8 rounds, and Bolt Action Rifle approx 10 rds with reloads on the clock.


Hope to see y'all there!  :D

The buckles have arrived for the match and they are AWESOME!!!! These buckles will go to the first place category winners even if they are from out-of-state. The SASS State Champion conchos will go to LA State Champions.

Hey Nellie, I'm about 90% sure that I will make it, slim possibly of schedule conflict.   I have a room reserved at the inn.  Count me in, if I don't make I will reimburse you for meal costs.
