Sunday, September 20: Demo at the Smithtown Country Fair.
Come down to the Smithtown Historical Society on Middle Country Road in Smithtown. Food, fun, music and mounted shooting. This is always a great event with plenty to do for the entire family. Fair starts at 10am. The Island Long Riders will be performing mounted shooting demonstrations throughout the day.
It was a small match, but a great day with great people. Thanks to everyone who came out to ride, help and watch.
Congratulations to Jimmy for taking the overall title. It was close, with Rich right on his heels. Denise gets top cowgirl honors – You and Poca are looking great.
Also looks like the “old” guy still has some speed left in him. Joe takes the 2015 title of fastest “Gunrunner” in our first-ever rifle runoff. Jimmy can come bear hunting with me anytime! 🙂
