Pistol Section Report—by Rick Servando

So November's big fun/IPSC style shoot brought 63 action pistol shooters. The lower turnout and higher round count is a perfect time to hone your competitive skills. December's annual charity shoot brought 106 guns for a holiday themed great time. All proceeds from this event goes to local charities. Cowboy action drew 21 gunfighters for their last event for the year. With no events till next year, we can spend time with our loved one's... and a Dillon reloader ...Lol! MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEWYEAR!!!

Special Report 2018

Cowboy Fast Draw California State Championship hosted by The Cowboys

May 11th, 12th, & 13th the OSC CFDA club, The Cowboys, put on for the first time a California State sanctioned fast draw contest. There were 100 gunfighters from over 7 states. The Oakdale Sportsmen’s Club is the premier venue for our cowboy fast draw and with all the improvements all the sections have made over the last 2 1/2 years we were proud to show our club off. The competitors were of the best in the spot with 3 World Champion Women and 6 World Champion Men. The Cowboys, many of which who are OSC members, put in several months of preparation from converting Bay 1 & 2 to accommodate a total of three ranges, putting on an excellent dinner Friday and Saturday night and 70 awards. The dinner included a raffle and fund raiser for the CFDA college tuition "Shoot for the Stars". They provide college scholarships for young shooters in our sport. Board Historian Gene Dias, alias Stanislaus, and Marshall of the cowboys was the match director of the class A state contest. The entire group of cowboys each pulled their weight. This included the pre-planning and set up of all three ranges, the raffle, art work, meals, and the tear down. I personally attended many state and territorial contests and ours ran efficiently and ranks at the top of the sport. The Cowboys want to thank the OSC membership and sections for standing down allowing this contest to take place. We also want to sincerely thank each and every Cowboy who helped by working and donating there time to have such a successful outcome. The event was also very safe, fun, and very competitive which are the three basics rules of cowboy fast draw.
