San Juan Shootists team up with the Fred Harman Art Museum

It’s the late 1800s in the Old West.

You’ve been called out into the street to draw against the bad guy. How would you have done? Want to find out?

If you love movies like “Tombstone,” “3:10 to Yuma” and “Lonesome Dove,” then you probably appreciate the “Wild West” and Cowboy Fast Draw just might be right for you.

The San Juan Shootists Cowboy Fast Draw club of Pagosa Springs has teamed up with the Fred Harman Art Museum. The club will hold our May match at the museum. The public is welcome to attend and even to give it a try. The club will supply everything you need and experienced club members will be available to give those who want to give it a try the proper instructions to make it a safe and fun experience.

The cost is $5 for 10 shots. All proceeds will be donated to the museum. There will be special certificates awarded to both winners and losers of challenge matches. Fathers can challenge sons, mothers can challenge daughters and friends can challenge each other. Youth under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Minimum age is 14 years old.

The date is Saturday May 21.  The event will be held outdoors, weather permitting.  If the weather is bad, the event will be rescheduled.  Public tryouts and challenges begin at 10 a.m. Our monthly match will begin at noon. There will be periodic breaks in our match so you can give it a try.

Join us for the fun and stay to visit the museum.

The San Juan Shootists are a local nonprofit organization.
