                 BREAKING NEWS

For those shooters who are worried about ammo, primer and powder shortages, the Rio Cowboys would like to introduce the John Wayne Category.  Shooters will participate in the match but only use half the required ammunition. This is a temporary offering at our matches and will be available until ammo  and reloading components supplies return to normal.

For details about John Wayne and Josey Wales categories go HERE.

Our summer shooting season is here.  That  means no  Long Range side matches and we will be starting the main match earlier.   Safety briefing will be at 7:45.  First round down range should be at 8:00 a.m.  So get to the range in time to check your posse assignment and be ready for the Safety Briefing.

Setup will be on Friday at 11:45.  For more info on that contact our Range Master, Skinny McKinney.

Skinny McKinney was awarded coveted Rio Ranger status for his dedicated service to our cowboy club.

ONLINE REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT INFORMATION

 Our  matches now utilize online registration and  match fee payment on line by credit card.   There is a shopping cart and checkout process similar to other on line purchasing.   Our preferred refund is to give a credit to a future match for withdrawls/cancellations that notify us in advance.  To withdraw from the match notify Claudia Feather at claudiaingoglia@msn.com.

VOLUNTEERISM

Volunteerism, the life blood of a cowboy shooting club.  This is evident at the match when your fellow shooters volunteer to be Posse Marshal, TO, spotters and brass pickers.  Volunteerism makes for a good match.  And when the match is over cowboys and cowgirls join in to pickup steel.  However there would not have been a match were it not for the very few that come out on Friday and volunteer to set up the steel. We need more of you as Friday volunteers.  No volunteer is more indispensable than the Friday setup crew.  For our matches to continue you must help.   While volunteering has its own intrinsic reward,  volunteers who help setup will be eligible for reduced match fees.  See our shop for the fees.
