Shoot Out at the Broadley Corral
The Wild West evening was a great success with a packed Broadleys enjoying a fun evening.
A crowd of 75 mixed squaws, bandits, rustlers, sheriffs, gunslingers and A Man Called Horse were in attendance and A Fistfull of Dollars (around £800) was raised for Club funds.
At High Noon the clubhouse was transformed into ‘Broadleys Saloon’ to create an authentic Western atmosphere complete with “Wanted” posters of the main committee members. The outside of the club became a scene from the Wild West with a Bucking Bronco and shooting gallery to fire at tin cans displaying a range of MCC bandits, no-one was quite sure why the Chairman’s can took the most hits! Guests were treated to a delicious chilli from Kirstie’s Kitchen and a tasty dessert followed by an excellent session from local "Johnny Guitar" Richard Friend who quickly had the crowd dancing. The prize for the best dressed cowboy went to Mike “Captain” Cox and best dressed cowgirl was Amy Zerk . The "Blazing Saddles" award for the longest bronco ride was Jeremy Bond who manged to stay on for 52 seconds, it may not sound very long but those who tried the ride will appreciate just how tricky this was! Everybody entered into the spirit of the evening and a great time was had by all.
Thanks to everybody for supporting the event. Special thanks must go to Angela Sinkins, Sarah Hicks, Sue Jupp and Amelia Bond who did such a grand job in organising the event and making the evening such a success. Thanks also to Jim Creed for providing the lighting, Keith Pullin for his help in setting up and John Pullin for providing the bales of straw.
