The SASS Texas State Blackpowder Shootout brought new friends to the range for our long-standing Senior Games, May 20-21, 2017. The Senior Games allow grownups (Yusta Be's) who are 60 or older to compete against each other. The young folks (Wanta Be's) ,59 and younger, are NOT competing against the wise and crafty Yusta Be's. Incorporating Black Powder shooters into the mix was fun, but added complexity to calculating (and understanding) the awards strategy. Each Black Powder shooter was included in their selected Black Powder category for the SASS Shootout, and also the appropriate Yusta Be/Wanta Be category for our Senior Games. The matches were ranked on TOTAL TIME, not RANK POINTS. Here are the Clean Matches.
Here are the results: SASS Texas State Black Powder Shootout. Although overall rankings are not usually reviewed in Black Powder matches (or so I am told), it's hard not to commend Slowaz Molasses, Manchaca Kid, and Verdadero Dan. Senior Games Yusta Be shooters includes the Black Powder and smokeless competitors who are 60 or older. Congratulations to Gunslinger, Pineywoods Jim, and Lonesome Lefty placing ONE, TWO and THREE in this group. Senior Games Wanta Be shooters included the Black Powder and smokeless competitors who are 59 and younger. Congratulations to Texita Draw, Missouri Mae, and Hairtrigger Hayes who are ONE, TWO and THREE in this group. Senior Games OVER ALL results with Texita Draw besting us all! Missouri Mae and Gunslinger are TWO and THREE in this overall group. Great shooting! Thanks for coming.
