What a wonderful weekend (barring the weather on Day 2 which we wish we had some control over)! It was interesting to see how well people shot in the wind and at the end of the day we had some clean shooters. We are pleased (and a little proud) to have grown from a shoot with 8 competitors last year to a shoot with 28 this year.
On behalf of the Omits (Leeanne & Ian) and the O’Neail’s (Mike & Debbie) I’d like to thank Chris and Mikayla Christopherson as well as Lee and Clarence Walerius to responding to our first call for volunteers to be on the “Shoot Committee”. An extra big “Thank You” to Bob & Cathy Irwin for finding sponsorship for our shoot (I think this is why we had an increase in entries).
We would also like to shout out big Thank You’s to:
Gary – for thinking up such an awesome name for our shoot and getting it on the website for us.
Chris & Mikayla for volunteering for the weekend as our announcer and our armourer respectively.
Frank Bullin – for lending us his timer (and some extra valve stems)
Phil Woods for acting in the capacity of Match Director and helping with the parking on Friday night.
Jayne Woods for being our Gate person on Sunday.
Cain, Tom, Niels & Holly for helping the Match Director and Range master with setting up the courses.
Duncan & Cain for teaching us and helping us with the payouts.
Dora – as always thanks for your support and reassurance – we REALLY appreciate it.
Our thanks to the Living Skies Vaulting Club for the awesome job they did as Balloon Runners for the weekend. A huge job and one that makes such a difference to keeping things moving smoothly.
A BIG THANKYOU to all of our Alberta shooting pals for showing support by coming to play and compete for the weekend.
We’re already busy working on next year’s shoot. We have lots of ideas and sponsorship to pursue. I will be attending the Perdue Ag. society meeting on Sept 24th and have asked to have the SCMSA shoot put on the agenda.
Once again, thank you to everyone who helped us make this shoot a success and we invite all members to get actively involved in your club and the shoots – be it Agribition, Aylesbury, Perdue – or all of them.
The 1st annual Trails End CMSA Shootout is a wrap!
The SCMSA is very grateful to all of our shooters, our sponsors, volunteers, and supporters for making this shoot happen. This was our first two day CMSA shootout and apparently the biggest shoot in Canada this year! Thanks to Meagan Charnock and Will Campbell for running the timer booth and announcing the event and Cain Quam for doing the safety meeting and guiding the “Wranglers”.
Special thanks to Bob and Cathy Irwin for gathering so much sponsorship! Thanks also to Lyle and Chris Benz (Trails End Guest Ranch) for the excellent facilities and hospitality. Importantly, Tom and Dora Hakl made enormous contributions of time and effort toward this shoot! Tom Hakl really stepped up to the plate as our arena groomer and all around hard working set up and tear down dude. The advice and support from the seasoned shooters that came and supported out shoot is also greatly appreciated.
Mark your calendars! This will be an annual event and it will be even bigger in 2015.
Congratulations to all of our competitors!
Clean shooters got $136 each! Gail Cook, Jean MacMillan, Harold Oliver, Cain Quam & Denise Feenstra. Darn good shooting!
The 2014 Nationals and the South Central Regional shoots were a huge success! Both were run like a well oiled machine. Many thanks to all the volunteers that helped out with these events. Special thanks to the CMSA for making your neighbors to the North feel so welcome at these competitions.
Congratulations to all the 300+ competitors! Special mention to our SCMSA members that made the 5,200 KM round trip to be a part of the Tunica competitions. Everyone had a great time and showed very well.
South Central Regional (full classes, ~200 shooters):
Roberta L1 1st Cheyenne L1 2nd, Jaelyn L1 7th. Gary M1 2nd, Cain M2 1st, Cathy SL1 2nd, Bob SM1 6th.
Jeffers U.S. National Championship (full classes, ~300 shooters):
Roberta and Gary took home L1 and M1 U.S. National Championship buckles, Cheyenne ended up catching a cheque for L1 3rd and a clean shooter cheque. Jaelynn took 11th in L1, Cain scored a cheque in the Double Down, ended up 3rd in M2 (real tough class!), the split between 1,2&3 was just hundredths of a second. Cathy was 2nd in SL2. and Bob took 11th in SM1
Thanks to all our friends, family and extended mounted shooting family for all the support. Special thanks to Cain Quam for taking us all where we needed to be to find success.
Safe travel and good luck to the Saskatchewan and Alberta riders that will be competing at Jeffers National Championship at Paul Battle Arena in Tunica, Mississippi. April 16 – 19th.

We wrapped up a very accomplished 2014 annual general meeting last night.The excellent turn out enabled lots of positive and productive discussion. Our club has a growing team of executive and directors that are prepared and intent on helping our new and existing members get out there and shoot. Our executive and directorship is distributed across the province to ensure that our members have assistance and representation regardless of where they live and shoot.
We may be hundreds of miles away from each other, but we have email, Facebook and teleconference to keep our club unified and working together to service our members while growing and promoting the sport of Cowboy Mounted Shooting.
