Headline: Dick Holliday Tries To Join The Circus

 

Dick read in a circular that the circus was coming to town and needed a new lion tamer......well after failing as a Monk and a Law Man Dick decided to check out the job and see if he could make a go of it........He went to the tryouts and found that only he and Luscious Louise a 21 year old from the Red Light District had shown up to try out for the job........The circus owner told them that he was not going to sugar coat the job and advised them that this ferocious lion had eaten the last two lion tamers that had been in the cage with him......Being the gentleman that he is Dick decided let Louise go first.......She picked up the chair and whip and ventured into the cage......As the snarling lion ran up to her and was about to pounce she threw open her coat to reveal that she was completely naked.......The snarling lion stopped in his tracks and sheepishly crawled up to Louise and starts licking her feet and ankles....He continues to lick and kiss her entire body for several minutes and then rests his head at her feet..........The circus owner said that he'd never seen such a thing in his life and looks over at Dick......."Do you think you can top that?" the owner says........Dick replies,  "No problem, just get that damn lion out of the way"........Louise got the job.........

 

The December Cowboy Turkey Match or should I say the December Turkey Cowboy Match was a great success.......We gave ten or eleven turkeys to various winners and losers of the match.....We had 24 Turkeys or rather cowboys in attendance and all got to do a bunch of blasting.......

 

The scores went like this:

BGC BARELY TRAILS CAMP LEJEUNE AT SKEET AND TRAP


The last shoot saw the LeJuene club resort to some underhanded, dastardly deeds to slip by BGC by a measly 10 targets. We had stomped them in the first shoot to lead by 9.  Rumor is they drugged several of the BGC shooters with sausage and actually caused an oscillation in the north polar magnetic field that affected the BGC shooters.  So revenge is in the air...........

Many thanks to the Camp LeJeune members for a delicious lunch (the sausage was great!) and fine hospitality.  Everything ran smoothly and all had a great time.


Anyone can participate in the shoot; the top 5 scores from each club are used to determine the team for that particular shoot.  Itís a lot of fun and youíll get a good lunch out of the deal too.  So plan to come out for the next shoot Ė Sunday, January

7 at the Buccaneer Gun Club range.  Shooting starts at 9:00AM.
