Howdy all,

 Beautiful weather and great smiles brought 49 shooters together today for a lovely day of shooting.  We had just a hint of fine mist for a short while then some blue sky decided to poke out.

 Congratulations to Hoodoo as our Top Lady shooter.  Way to go Hoodoo.  We're really proud of you.

 We would like to welcome two new shooters to our club.  Squirrel Tooth Alice - Daughter of Big Iron Buster and Iron Eyes who just moved up here from California.  We hope you enjoyed yourselves as we enjoyed having you shoot with us.

 Thanks to all for donating to the prize table.  Everyone was very generous today.  I think we need a bigger table.  :-)  Grumpy, Grizzly Wulff, Antety and Long Jim, Slick Elic McKenzie, Big Iron Buster, Yukon Jack, Buckshot Shell-E, Will Shootem, Buckshot Pete and Buck McGee.

 Now for the sad part of the day.  All of you that shot today heard the announcement about Oregonian's daughter.  For those of you who were not able to attend here is the run down in a nut shell. 

 Oregonian's daughter Lisa Gander is in the hospital with a very serious illness.  To make matters worse her health insurance had not taken affect when she was diagnosed and hospitalized on October 30th so she is responsible for all of her hospital and doctor bills.  As of today she is still in the hospital.  John Gander (Oregonian) and his lovely wife are having to deplete their savings to help pay for all these bills.  Rumor has it that the bank has taken her car away and is threatening to foreclose on her home.

 So on behalf of the Oregon Old West Shooting Society we decided to donate ALL of today's match fees to John and his family.  Many other thoughtful shooters at the match also stepped up and chipped in with what they could afford.  Thank you all so very much.  As I am writing this letter we have a grand total of $1,033.00 to give to Oregonian.  I know this is a long way from what they need but it's a start.  If you can give in any way possible I'm sure they would greatly appreciate it.  This is why I LOVE SASS/CAS because of what kind of people this sport brings in.  Through the love and support of our extended family we will get them through this.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Lisa, Oregonian, and their family at this time of need.  So please, if you can help out in any way possible please do.

 I think donations can be made at any Washington Mutual bank in Lisa Gander's name.  Or call Oregonian at 971-241-0990.

 The disease she has is called Hashimoto's Encephalopathy.   Oregonian's daughter Lisa is the 13th person in the United States to come in contact with this terrible and rare disease.  They don't know how she came in contact with it.  For more information on this disease please go here.

 Thank you all for your kindness and support in this matter.  In light of this I hope you all have a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

 Respectively yours,

 Mid Valley Drifter
