The Blackhand Raiders are saddened by the loss of one of our most treasured members. Old Mill Bill (aka William Nesbitt) passed away on Monday February 5, 2018. Old Mill Bill was a generous friend to all and a long serving officer of The Blackhand Raiders. He gave the club a lot of his time and his heart. Bill got a lot of us started in CAS and for that we are forever grateful. Our thoughts, prayers go out to his family.
Cowboy Action Shooting, in general, and the Blackhand Raiders, specifically, lost a wonderful man on Sunday, February 15th, 2015 when Dennis Wood - better known to us as Shotgun Slade - passed away in Florida following a brief illness. He exemplified "The Cowboy Way", thinking of others before himself. The fun in watching him shoot in "outlaw" style, dancing his little jig after a stage that was shot particularly well, and just his general presence at the range will all be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family that is left behind.
