The Dry Gulch Desperados were formed in early 2000 when GD Rimrock, Diamond Deb, Shalako Tucker & Pinto Annie discovered the East End Rod & Gun Club and the ability to practice Cowboy Action Shooting (see SASSNet.com) a little closer to home.
We shoot the First Saturday of the month - see the Calendar for specific dates. November through April sign-up at 9:30, Shooter's Meeting at 10 am. May through October sign-up is at 8:30 and the Shooter's Meeting is at 9 am.
We are a SASS affiliated club and Runamuck is our Territorial Governor (TG).

Congratulations to Ol' #4 for winning the shotgun challenge and to Shalako Tucker and Lightfoot for winning the team event!
