The idea of a "Wagon Train" has been kicked around by Cowboys & Cowgirls in Western Canada for a number of years. A lot of folks thought it would be a great idea to line up a series of Cowboy Action Shooting matches over c0nsecutive weekends. We could get our tin and fiberglass covered wagons together in a train and roam from town to town to town, sharing our victuals, telling tall tales around the campfire and displaying our prowess with firearms.
A few years ago individual clubs began coöperating by scheduling their individual matches on following weekends. This year four Canadian CAS clubs have teamed up and put together five consecutive weekends with six two-day matches, including two SASS Canadian and one SASS Regional Championships. Contact information for these clubs and their matches follows:
Range: Courtenay Fish & Game Boomtown Range 5 miles (8 kilometers) southwest of Courtenay, BC
GPS: Lat. 49.6483061 Long. -125.0933933
The easy way to use these GPS coördinates: using your cursor, wipe the string of Lat. & Long. numbers, i.e. 49.6483061 Long. -125.0933933. Paste these numbers into your mapping program. Delete (cut) the Long. out of the string, leaving only one, repeat one, space between the numbers. Be sure to leave the minus (-) sign which indicates west of the Prime Meridian, otherwise you'll end up somewhere in Inner Mongolia - no kidding. Click enter and - BINGO! - you should be at the desired location.
