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 #30 - Awarded to Jax T during Hell on the Prairie.  He had the audacity to break one of our targets while shooting a stage.  He was graciously allowed a reshoot, and taking the bull by the horns, shot a worse score for the stage.

Squirrel #31 - Awarded to Medicine Creek Kid for not being able to control his rifle.  Jacked out rounds, had trouble with reloads, then put one over the berm.  Not bad for a police firearms instructor...

Squirrel #32 - Awarded to Jerome Watts, mainly for the sake of it.  Too much talking about a white squirrel (but sadly coming up short) and inability to aim a shotgun.

Squirrel #33 - Awarded to Wynonna Earp for  masterful displays of rapid shooting and equally rapid missing - Followed by the inability to remember to shoot her shotgun.

Squirrel #34 - Awarded to Dorado for the first exploded gun in club history.  No injuries, except for one 1858 Remington that is now toast.

Squirrel #35 - Awarded to Dead Last for being thrown from his electric horse at Land Run.  Now that is something you don't see everyday.  Maybe a good reason for an alias change...

Squirrel #36 - Awarded to Texita Draw for skedaddling when he should have scurried - thus resulting in a dropped loaded firearm - on the last stage of a clean match...... 
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?
