Squirrel #29 Awarded to Rock Springs Renegade for a rash of problems on a stage.  Had a squib, so was given the chance to reshoot - but failed to reload a revolver.  Lots of "click, click, click, click" and no bang.  He'll always remember, "Are you loaded?"

Squirrel #34 - Awarded to Dorado for the first exploded gun in club history.  No injuries, except for one 1858 Remington that is now toast.
The Peculiar Order of the Black Squirrel
The Shortgrass Rangers, following in the tradition of the "WHITE SQUIRREL" for a clean match, have instituted the "Black Squirrel" award for the ugliest of trainwrecks - voted by fellow shooters.  It may be interesting, but is it a reward or a penalty?
