Keystone Cowboys got there 2012 season underway this past weekend with their Spring Fling Shoot
at the Jefferson Co Fairground. Saturdays event ended with Mark Wright of the Northern Ohio Outlaws
taking home the Overall title and yours truly slipping into the Reserve spot, also winning my class and
earning a move up. Also earning a move up was Carla Spackman of Ohio during Sundays event. Saturday
night's dinner was provided by the fair board's Spring Fling Benefit dinner which was delicious. Though there
were many winners during the day, all who attended the dinner were "losers" as far as the raffles were
concerned! We had a new member, Stan Carper of Catawissa, PA. join in the fun and do quite well for
his first event. Though there were a few technical difficulties, the events ran exceptionally smooth thanks
to the olympic balloon runners from Abraxis detention center! These guys were rocking the courses and
showing us just how efficient a shoot can be. A great big "THANK YOU" goes out to these fellows. We
can't forget our ladies who work so hard to keep everything in order. Deb Braid, Deb and Amanda Owens,
as well as Dave and John Owens and Liz Billotte all pitched in to get things done. We also want to thank
Bill May for being Range Master, not to mention the fill- ins, Mark Wright and Rick Hill. Sunday's Overall Champion
was Zach Snyder and Reserve was John North. We would like to thank everyone who attended, spectated,
or volunteered throughout the weekend and hope to see you and your friends all again at our July shoot.
Until then, remember to ride hard and shoot straight!
