Spring is finally here so we can finally do some shooting at our outdoor ranges!! It seems to have been a “long” winter.
Our ODFD (Old Dominion Fast Draw) March Monthly Match on “Boothill” on the 18th was a great match! There was some seriously competitive “Gunfightin’ goin on”!!! Congratulations to our 3 winners… Bob Ed Pain in the Men’s Division, Billie Sioux in the Women’s Division, and Heffay in the Youth Division!!
We have practice scheduled on Boothill this evening from 6-9pm. Fee for practice is $10 with an additional $10 if you use Club Ammo!
ODFD’s April Monthly Match is scheduled for this Sunday the 21st!!! The weather forecast looks great for a day of shooting outside in “Boothill Corral”! I expect the competition to once again be “fast and furious”!! Everyone will be shooting 6 rounds and no one will “X” out. However, we will be keeping track of your “X’s” and times to determine the Top 7 shooters from each division to battle it out in a Championship Format to determine the Top 3 winners for awards. The first 2 rounds will be shot at 15’, the next 2 rounds at 18’, and the balance of the match will be shot at 21’. Registration begins at 8:30am and ends when the Safety Meeting begins at 9:30. The match begins at 10am!!! The fee for the match is $20 with an additional fee of $5 if you use club ammo.
We have so many “up and coming” fast shooting competitors; it is always interesting to see who makes it to the “Magnificent 7”!! Our fastest Gunfighters have to work extra hard to win against so many “fast guns”! We have some very exciting matches to compete in and to watch the results!
The next few months are going to be VERY BUSY for the Virginia Clubs!! April the 28th is New River Fast Draw’s (NRFD) Monthly Match, and then May 4th is the Powhatan Peacemakers (PPFD) Match at Cozy Acres!! I am sure both of those clubs will be sending out info on those matches in the very near future.
Then… on SATURDAY, May 11th, ODFD will be celebrating “5 YEARS” as a Sanctioned CFDA Cowboy Fast Draw Club! We will be celebrating that day with a surely great match and then a “Potluck Dinner” immediately following the match with some recognition awards and comments. This will be a very special day for ODFD and we hope to see a bunch of friends and competitors there to celebrate with us!!! Details of the match will be going out soon!!!
And then on Saturday, May 18th, several Virginia Gunfighters are making the trip to Saint Augustine Florida to help the Ancient City Conquistadors run their “very first” Cowboy Fast Draw Match!! This is a very exciting event!! Cowboy Fast Draw in Florida!!! A beautiful and fun “Vacation State”, and fantastic folks!! The match will be held at the Ancient City Gun Range in Saint Augustine. This is a beautiful range ran by a great staff. Their website is http://www.attac-fl.com/. Check it out for the Range’s info and directions. This will be a very successful CFDA Club with surely big plans for the future and future events. More info on the match will be going out soon!!!

“SHOWDOWN IN DIXIE”, The CFDA Virginia State Championship will be held on July 12th, 13th and 14th!! Details on this match are on our website!! http://www.virginiafastdraw.com/. We are surely looking forward to spending time with old friends and brand new friends at what promises to be a very exciting match to determine Virginia’s 2013 State Champions!! A reminder, this year’s match will be a little different than last years match. Friday, the 12th will be a “Stand Alone” Category Match Day to determine placements and Champions in CFDA Categories. For any questions, please contact us!! We hope to see you there!!!
As you can see, the three (3) Virginia CFDA Clubs are very active and busy working hard together to provide “plenty” of shooting opportunities for Gunfighters looking to “slap leather and pull iron” against opponents in a very friendly atmosphere of welcoming southern hospitality. To our regular Virginia Gunfighters… keep up the great efforts in supporting our clubs! And to our visitors to Virginia… come and see us! We’ll do our best to make ya feel welcome!!
See ya soon!!
