The Eas’dern Shore Renegades

The Eas’dern Shore Renegades was started in 2005 by Too Dang Frank (aka Frank Pinder) and Slash 8 (aka Earl Brooks). On the way home from a cowboy match one day, the two pards got to talking about starting a new cowboy match at the gun club where they both belonged. Delmarva Sportsman Association would become the new home for the Eas’dern Shore Renegades, the only SASS Club on Maryland’s Eastern Shore at that time. We shoot the first Saturday of every month year ’round.

Cost of the match is $15 which includes lunch ~ the best lunch around! Thanks go to our Golden Skillet Crew!
