Happy Trails Daisy!

It is with much sadness and regret that we must say goodbye to someone who has been instrumental in the success and growth of our Cowboy Fast Draw program. Mary Ann Sheets, known to most as Daisy A’Dare, took a fledgling group of misfit cowboys and built us into a respectable and successful group of misfit cowboys and cowgirls. She gave us our name and our identity.

Under her exceptional leadership, participation in the program tripled, we acquired an additional set of targets and other much needed equipment, and she streamlined the monthly shoot process. Originally tasked with taking Fast Draw at Blue Hill to the next level, she did that and so much more!

As a token of our appreciation for everything she has done for us, The Shootist Society took the opportunity of the New England Invitational on April 8 to present Mary Ann with a plaque expressing our gratitude. April 8 also happened to be her Birthday.

The plaque is inscribed;

In Appreciation for her Dedication and Commitment to our Fast Draw Program – The Blue Hill Shootist Society presents this award to – Mary Ann Sheets aka Daisy A’Dare – April 8, 2017

Happy Trails Daisy. Best of luck in your future endeavors. You will never be forgotten, and you will always be Daisy to us, the Cowboys and Cowgirls of the Blue Hill Shootist Society

Cowboy Action Shooting is Back!

On July 9th, Cowboy Action Shooting returned to Blue Hill after a year hiatus. The Blue Hill Regulators manned an efficient posse of 13 shooters. The Shoot consisted of 6 Wild West stages with many challenging targets for pistols, rifles and shotguns. We had 2 clean shooters: Guzzle and Dustin Checotah. Our own Dangerous Dan had the overall best score. Click here to view all the scores.

September 2016 Gong Shoot Results

Here are the results from the September Blue Hill Club Championship. Click here to view the final score sheet. It was an interesting shoot with an increased level of completion in sporting rifle and an amazing shoot-off in cartridge revolver. Lloyd and Arnold were tied after 20 shots with scores of 17 each. They went on to shoot 18 more shots each to break the tie with Lloyd even using Arnold’s revolver because he was out of ammo for his own gun. Lloyd had a great day with 1st in Revolver, 1st in sporting rifle and winning the Quigley! Shooters are getting better at off hand and cowboy rifle scores are almost as good as sporting rifle. Overall a great season with the shoots raising over $1000 for the support of the club. I am grateful for all the help from the volunteers and shooters for making this year so successful. The new gongs are as good as new-almost “bullet” proof! I look forward to seeing you all next year. Peter Flanagan
