We had 42 Shooters for our first match of 2019. It was great to see Outlaw Justice and Slow Rider back in action! We sure miss our family members when they aren't there. We had several out with sickness and injury this match and we sure did miss them. 

Congratulations to our Division Winners:
Men: Big Ugly
Ladies: Billie Sioux
Youth: Boneyard Bandit 

Thanks so much to everyone who came out on Saturday to help with set-up and for everybody who helped with tare down, we really appreciate what you do! 
The Food Posse did a great job as well! 
Thanks again for everybody who is so generous to bring all the wonderful food we enjoy each month. 
Special "Thanks" to everyone who participated in the fundraiser for the California CFDA victims of the wild fires, all in all we raised $650.00 for the cause. My goal was to raise 500, it was so good to exceed that! 
This added to what Grandview Gunslingers and New River Fast Draws matches this month can raise I expect we will topple over $1,000.00
I again am amazed at the generosity of the CFDA family here in Virginia, I know the recipients of your generosity will be very grateful. 
It was great to get the new Shooting season started and I'm already looking forward to next months match.

It was a beautiful day for Fast Draw, however it was tough to get through it with the sad news of To Slow Joe's passing. We didn't here about it until we got there and it was devastating. He was such a vital part of the Virginia Peacemakers and his place among us will never be filled. I will miss him greatly and I ask everyone to still pray for his Family and for all of us who are so heavy hearted. 
Thanks so much to everyone who helped with the late set up Saturday and for helping with the tear down Sunday, your dedication to this sport is what keeps us going. 
Thanks again to the Food Posse for some fine vitals.... we all enjoyed them. 
Come on out this Sunday to the Grandview Gunslingers in Bedford, it's always a great shoot!! 
Dont forget to get those Showdown in Dixie registrations in, it will be here before you know it. 
See ya soon!

We had 35 Gunfighters show up for our Cinco de Mayo Gunfight. 
It was a little rainy but that didn't stop us from having a blast and enjoying another opportunity to gather with our Fast Draw Family and enjoy a fun day of competition.  Lots of shooters showed up dressed in their Mexican duds and Sombreros were everywhere! What a good time we had. 
Congratulations to our Division Winners:
Youth: Boneyard Bandit
Ladies: Calamity Pam
Men: Big Ugly

The Food Posse really out did itself with all the Mexican food, it was truly a FEAST!! There was so much food I couldnt try everything but believe me I tried. Thanks so much to everyone who made this such a fun event! 

Thanks again to everyone who helped with set up and tare down. 
Dont forget next match is 5/19 at Grandview Gunslingers, you need to be there! 
Our next Match will be June 2nd. 

We will be at Taylor's and Co. in Winchester, Va. This Friday and Saturday for their Customer Appreciation Days, we will be doing a Try Cowboy Fast Draw event, we do this every year and we put a lot of people on the line to try Fast Draw, we have drawn in some great members to the CFDA at this event. If you can come out and help out at all either day we would greatly appreciate it! 
See ya soon! 

You will never be forgotten. Rest in Peace sweet friend.

Joe, we will always love and miss you . You will never be forgotten .
