Buffalo Creek Law Dog:
Sir Charles......thanks for the time table for 2008.

Last Easter at the gun show in Calgary, I met a gentleman from Cranbrook, BC who stated that they had just started a cowboy action shooting club in that city (2007) and to come on down.  Unfortunately, I didn't get any more info regarding this at the time.

Have you heard anything regarding this club? 



Sir Charles deMouton-Black:
BCLD:  Cranbrook is an interesting place.  It is very near Wildhorse Creek,  the first Kootenay gold rush.  Fisherville was the precurser to Noname City, as the miners burnt it down to follow the gold under the town when all else failed.  There was a real gunfight there in 1862 and vigilanty action followed, until the Magistrate arrived.  A posse of miners followed "One Eared Charlie" to the Bonners Ferry area & filled him full of Buckshot for killing a BC Provincial.  Fort Steele followed later when an Indian was falsely accused of a killing actually perpetrated by the local big rancher.  Sam Steele set up a mountie post but it was abandoned when the indian scare blew over.  Now the remains are an Historic site.

To the point, alll info is welcome but I'll folla up next year.  I'm off to lay a wreath at the grave of J Wes Hardin!

Buffalo Creek Law Dog:
Been to Ft Steele many times, Ol' Sam Steele reminds me of Hank Snow's song "I've been everywhere man"

If you follow Sam's trails, he has just about covered all of the Canadian prairies and most of it looking through a horses ears.  :)
