Cheyenne is the capital of Wyoming and is easy to get to --located in Southeast Wyoming at the crossroads of I-25 and I-80. Wyoming's capital city embodies the spirit of the Old West.

What a great weekend of championship level NRA Action Pistol shooting at the Otto Rd Shooting Range in Cheyenne Wyoming. 30 competitors from 4 points of the compass converged on 'Ol Cheyenne for the first annual "Steamboat Challenge" NRA Action Pistol Regional and State Championship. Weather was hot on Saturday about 93 degrees and when the range is at 6,200 ft altitude that is hot but it was a "dry heat". Weather was cooler on Sunday.

"Steamboat Challenge" pays homage to Steamboat, a Wyoming bred bucking horse from 100 years ago -- who was as strong and proud as the cowboys who tried to ride him. Steamboat was one of the best known bucking broncos of all time and embodied the values in which Wyoming was built, toughness and a "never say die attitude".

Over 20 new national records were set -- many by women competitors in the rimfire division. James Avenell fired a perfect 480-48X in the Barricade Event to tie the national record. George Mowbray set a new Senior Open National Record in the International Rapid Fire Event with a 270-10X. I want to thank all the Bianchi Cup competitors that travelled long distances to "Big Wonderful Wyoming" and George Mowbray from Lake Charles LA whose advice and counsel I'm most grateful for. And most important--a salute and tip of to the hat to the cadre of volunteers who selflessly donated their time and efforts to make Steamboat Challenge a reality! Looks like we will do another Regional and State match next year in mid August. Make plans to attend. When dates are final I'll post information on the forum. Best Regards, Andy Rayland
