BUST UP AT BOOMTOWN, 2019

BUSTUP AT BOOMTOWN

 

The 2019 SASS Canadian National Championships were held at Boomtown, Vancouver Island, British Columbia from August 30 to September 2, 2019. There was plenty of rootin' tootin' six-gun shootin'  Cowboy Action, along with some truly great grub, and a lot of opportunities for Cowboys and Cowgirls from all over, to get together with friends old and new. These denizens of the Owl Hoot Trail had a well-earned reputation for deviltry, shenanigans, scally-waggin' and all kinds of tom-foolery. Decent i-dottin' and t-crossin' milquetoasts, nannies, ninnies and nincompoops were well advised to steer clear of these parts.

 

NORTH OF THE BORDER

As if hard-working Cowboys and Cowgirls didn't have enough to contend with, news reached many that the Valley Regulators, who were holed-up in Boomtown, had cooked up another scheme to entice folks to come to Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

They hosted the 2019 SASS Canadian Wild Bunch Championships on August 28 and 29, 2019.

Folks who were partial to shootin' those new-fangled .45 calibre,  Automatic Colt Pistols, Winchester's fancy-dan pump-action shotguns and their favorite lever guns  gathered in that part of the country and beganst gettin' up to their usual capers.
