    OK next Saturday, October 30, will be the Cherokee Cowboys Annual Charity Shoot - The Guns of Autumn. Directions at www.cherokeegunclub.org

    There should be about 80 Cowboy Action Shooters at the match which will run from 9 until about 4. There will be raffles for 4 guns, (2 of which anyone can enter, 2 are reserved for Shooters only). There will also be vendors making Custom earplugs, Leather vendors, gun vendors, clothing vendors, and bullet/reloading supplies.

    Children are welcome but must be at least 8 years old. Eye protection MUST be worn at all times, ear protection is strongly recommended (ear protection will be available at the range).

    This year all the stages of fire will be based on turning Star Wars VI - The Return of the Jedi BACK into a western. Join us for: Range Wars - Return of Jed I.

    The sounds cool.
    I'm assuming spectators are welcome??
    Does it cost anything to just watch?
    Do you have to dress as a cowboy?

    Spectators are welcome and encouraged - Just wear Eye protection and ear protection (Sunglasses are fine).

    Doesn't cost anything to watch.

    You don't have to dress Cowboy unless you're shooting, but you'll fit right in if you do. :righton:

    I used to do a lot of mounted shooting (CMSA) in wyoming. I may try and swing by and check it out. I grew up cowboying on big ranches so I would imagine my attire would be appropriate. Good luck competing.

    Are there any pix from this year's event? I wish we had been able to make it, but we had a family get-together to host that day. Looks like so much fun!

    Man, that looks like a blast. Hubby perked up when he saw "Undeadwood", so maybe I can talk him into going next year, specially since it's so close to us. Thanks for the pix :)
