By John Munro, Special to Sumner Newscow – The Wellington Chamber of Commerce has partnered with Trigger Guard Shooting Range to add two new events for the Wellington Wheat Festival this year.  

The first event will be held July 9, and will be a cowboy action shoot that is fondly named the Chisholm Trail 3 Gun Cowpoke.

Cowboy action shooting is sanctioned by the Single Action Shooting Society, and involves the shooting of single action revolvers, lever action rifles, and either double barrel, period slide action or lever action shotguns at static targets.  

Both time and accuracy are involved, as the most direct hits in the shortest amount of time is how it is scored.  There will be three classes for this event, adult males, adult female and youth.  Also, a trophy will be awarded for “Best Dressed”.  All participants dress up in mid to later 19th Century clothing to imitate what the true people of that era would have looked like.
