The coyote creek chronicle is now back in print. After a very busy spring semester and wrestling with retirement decisions, life is now moving at a slower pace and I have more time to devote to the monthly newsletter.
Having said that, I need your help! The newsletter is your newsletter and I would really appreciate contributions from the membership. Articles can range from personal observations/views on shooting, reloading, matches, cowboy action shooting in general, etc. Anything that you feel would be of interest and benefit your fellow shooters.

Cherokee Strip Doc, Sass #69224
aka John Schmacher, M.D.
Cherokee Strip Doc enjoyed our cowboy action shooting sport and particularly excelled in his long range shooting expertise. Many sought his assistance, guidance and knowledge in trying to improve their skills to the level on which he performed.
He will be sadly missed by friends, family and fellow shooters. Until we take that final ride, he will be in our thoughts and prayers.

SUNDAY SHOOT BEGINNING IN AUGUST
We will now be shooting on the fourth Sunday of the month, in addition to our regularly scheduled match on the 2nd Saturday of the month. Copperhead Charlie and Running Rose will coordinate the Sunday shoot along with the help of some other pards. Normally, the match will begin at 11:00 a.m. to afford those who want to go the church the opportunity to do and pull triggers as well. Also, for those late risers, you will be able to sleep in and then come out and shoot later in the day.
However, until the heat of the summer subsides, the Sunday match will begin at 9:00 a.m. Therefore, on Sunday, August 27th you can load ‘um up and come out and shoot for 9:00 a.m. Registration will be at the club house. Plan to bring your own lunch and scores will be presented at the end of the shoot.

Hangin’ at Coyote Creek - 2011
Nov. 11, 12, 13th
End of Trail Territorial Governors Meeting – 12 June 2011

Clubs Represented: Rattlesnake Blake—Bayou Bounty Hunters
Cooper York—Border Vigilantes
Soiled Dove (proxy) - Deadwood Marshals
If a competitor doesn’t complete all stages of the main match (for any reason) s/he should not be eligible for any main match awards.
Straw poll indicated the majority are in favor of this.
Overloading the rifle Q&A:
Pale Wofe Brunelle presented the related “WtC?” questions to the assembled TG’s.
These will be published in the July issue of the “Cowboy Chronicle,” as well as being posted on all of the SASS Wire forums.
Capping a C&B cylinder out of the revolver (@ the Loading Table)
If this is ruled “illegal” due to safety concerns if the loaded/capped cylinder is dropped, there would likely be repercussions affecting the use of cartridge conversion cylinders (which must be loaded outside of the revolver before reassembly).
The practice is LEGAL, but NOT RECOMMENDED.
Proposed agenda item:
Should Grand Dame’s be allowed to use .22 caliber firearms.
Additional discussion re: allowing < 20ga shotguns (i.e. 28ga & .410’s)
Suggested allowing the same firearm regulations as for Buckaroo/Buckarett categories.
Hipshot reported that the Chief RO Instructor program is working.
All CRO’s (Chief Range Officers) have the authority to certify new RO Instructors.
