Santa came down from the North Pole this past weekend to visit with Hutchinson residents. Kids and adults of all ages came to tell Santa what they wanted, from the newest gadgets to simple dolls or curling irons.
Wranglers, gunfighters, cowgirls and cowboys gathered at the Central Kansas Gun Club property on North Lorraine Rd. for the Annual Toys for Tots Shoot last Sunday. The attendees were dressed in 1800’s period clothing complete with holsters slung across their hips to hold pistols and lines of ammo. They are the Sandhill Regulators Club that is part of the International Single Action Shooting Society. On Sunday these SASS members dressed up to engage in a shooting competition in addition to collecting $234 and 20 toys for the children. In various Wild West stages, they shot snakes (pieces of garden hose) and metal targets shaped like prairie dogs, turkeys and pigs. In May they will have the annual Fast and the Furious competition which is a two day shoot on memorial weekend.
A local select choir group was chosen to perform with Foreigner during their concert on Saturday evening at the Sprint Grandstand in the Kansas State Fair. Besides the choir I also got to take a few photos at the concert, which was fun so I’m including a few of my favorites below.
This top shot was my favorite of the night, I actually have an even better one where you can see the base as he slides into it and the ball in the glove as the guy pulls his legs up to fly over the other guy’s head, but another player ran into the shot and his arm is obscuring part of it. I may post it later anyway just because I still like it. Just goes to show, some shots are made or broken by random chance.
