Over the Labor Day Holiday weekend, dh and I headed south to Hot Springs, Arkansas, for Shootin’ In the Shade, the Arkansas State Championship for Cowboy Action Shooting. I didn’t shoot all that well, but we had a lot of fun.
I thought you’d enjoy seeing some of the costumes worn on the shooting range and the dress-up duds from the party. Some of these cowboys clean up real nice!
Here's a typical morning as the shooting gets started.
Sometimes we get silly. Antelope Ann "lost" to the snake. :)
Gentleman G looked fine in his gambler vest and black hat--if you could see him through the black powder smoke!
All dressed up for the party. (That's me and dh on the left--it was just too hot for taffeta!)
There were so many beautiful costumes at the party--too many to show here. But we all made quite a pretty picture.
