There will be lots of shootin’ and smilin’ this weekend, as the Rope Burn City Bounty Collectors present Run Amok XVIIII July 26-28 at the Quesnel Rod and Gun Club.
Full of “fun” stages and good cowboy fellowship, this will be the Rope Burn City Bounty Collectors’ 19th annual cowboy action shoot. Side matches include “Man on Man” — match pistol; “The Cowboy” — match rifle; “Quigley Bucket Shoot” — single shot “big” boomer; “The Shooting Gallery” — 22 pistol (they will supply you if you don’t have a 22) and, lastly, “Big Bore Lever Action Rifle” match.
Participants may also shoot all of the main stages as a “renegade,” using their “Wild Bunch” gear and following those equipment rules.
Organizers say there is lots of space for trailers and tents, and participants can also camp in the clubhouse.
Registration is $30 and includes lunch on Saturday. Guests pay $2.
Registration takes place Friday from 2-3:45 p.m. and Saturday from 8-8:30 a.m.
On Friday night, side matches begin at 4 p.m. and go until they’re finished, which organizers say is usually about 7 p.m.
For Saturday, there is a safety meeting at the clubhouse at 8:30 a.m., and the main match begins at 9 a.m.
There is a potluck dinner and awards ceremony at 6 p.m., and participants are asked to wear their finest attire.
The shoot finishes Sunday with a team steel shoot featuring Rope Burn City versus The Rest of the World, starting at 10 a.m.
