Plug Your Ears, The Kabooms are Returning

After a hiatus of a couple of years or more, the infamous La Sal Dynamite Shoot is back! Course, a lot of things have been absent for two years as the world went through a pandemic. But as far as I know, there is only one dynamite shoot and it’s ours. Okay, there are probably others out there somewhere, but that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
So, mark your calendars for May 21st if you want to be involved in the KABOOMING. Otherwise, you’ll want to mark that date to know why your windows are rattling.
Everything gets underway at 10:00 a.m. and will go until 4:p.m. The venue is as always, Rattlesnake Ranch in West La Sal. Cost is $2.00 for two shots. Make it go kaboom and you get half the pot. The rest of the money goes to the La Sal Volunteer Fire Department as this is their big fund raiser. Oh, and it goes without saying, ya gotta bring your own guns and ammo.
Also, the rifle raffle (say that real fast several times) is back. A Savage 6.5 Creedmore rifle will be the prize. Tickets are $10.00 each. You need not be present to win, but you must be able to pass a Federal background check. Concessions will also be available at noon. Cost is $10.00 per plate. Good times are back again in our little village.
Another returning event, as I mentioned recently is the Farmer’s Market at the Community Center. The last one was held last Saturday. I unfortunately was out of town and can’t give you a first hand account. I promise to attend next time and bring you up to speed. I’ll also give you a schedule of upcoming markets. That too is home where I am not as I write. Lousy reporter, aren’t I?
From the last I heard prior to leaving town last week was that our little closet library is once again sans librarian. I shan’t go into any details, sorry. When I return I’ll do some deep digging and give you the whole skinny. I apologize as I don’t even know if our popular little library is even open for business. Gosh, I hope it is, as many folks depend on it on a regular basis, speaking for myself.
This is your very inefficient news reporter from Sierra La Sal signing off for this week. I promise a better report next time. Maybe by then the gale winds will also have ceased.
