Civil War Re-Enactment - Tryon, NC - March 21st, 2009

This is a small civil war reenactment which took place at Tryon, North Carolina. This was the first time I witnessed such an event, though I believe they usually have more participants.

This is the first time the folks at Tryon have put on an event like this, and there where quite a few people that came to watch.

I was planning to upload around 30 mins wort of video to Dailymotion (Youtube only allows 10 mins) but after having the upload fail 3 times I decided to try Youtube, which worked. Also this is the first video edited on my new Kunbuntu installation; kicked old Bill Gates to the curb! lol

I uploaded a "HD" quality video... if you have a fast enough connection, an HD button will appear after you start the video.

Team Roping - North Carolina

We met some folks practicing team roping. Team roping is a fast paced sport which requires the coordination of humans and horses.

Cowboy Action Shooting - High Country Cowboys

Cowboy Action Shooting - High Country Cowboys

Bill, Brenda, and I watched the High Country Cowboys annual match, Shootout at Wolf Creek 2008. Cowboy Action Shooting is a sport where challengers shoot competition stages with firearms from the 1899 period and earlier; single action pistols, lever action rifles, and shotguns.

You can click on HQ on the video bar to watch in the High Quality setting; meaning at the original quality level which I uploaded the video.
