EASTERN REGIONAL CANCELLED DUE TO COVID!!!!
« on: September 15, 2021, 07:20:22 AM »
After much consideration, the Johnson County Rangers are cancelling the 2021 NCOWS Eastern Regional Championship. We have two posse members who are battling COVID as I write this and many more members who have expressed concerns in regards to health risks. We have had pledges of assistance to help with setting up the stages, for which I cannot begin to express the depth of my gratitude. However, the heath risk is just too great at this time. As of today, Kentucky has six of the top ten counties in the country in terms of COVID infection rate, and the county and community where the match was to be held has a particularly high rate at this time. Ultimately, the health and safety of our members and participants must take precedence. All registrations will be refunded, and while I wish this choice did not have to be made, I am not sorry for it, as I feel that it is both right and necessary.   




Sincerely,

Mike Stapleton

Cliff, hard decision but the right one. Safety first.

"What doesn't kill you mutates and comes back to try again." is a reality, sadly.

Thank you to all who voted for cancellation in the Johnson County Rangers. You're looking out for your fellow shooters.

I am sure that was a tough decision to make, but it sounds like the correct one.
