A section of Aldergrove Athletic Park will be reserved old west shootout this weekend weekend.
The very next competition on the Fast Draw circuit will be Aldergroveâ€™s own World Index Fast Draw Championships this Saturday and Sunday, July 19-20, at Aldergrove Athletic Park.
The competition is put on during Aldergrove Fairdays (visitaldergrovefairdays.com).
This newly named event, now attaining WFDA world status, will feature a new western-style backdrop which was built by the Bomba Boys Scenery and Stag Company, and the event will also feature a Cowboy Church on Sunday morning at 9 a.m.
Another favourite of the event is the annual celebrity fast draw challenge, which is â€œaimedâ€ if you will, at such local celebrities.
Past events have featured Langley Township Councillor Bev Doman, Langley MLA Mary Polak, and Langley MP Mark Warawa, to name a few.
Actress Robin Reichmann, who took second in the event year, has also been invited back.
Prior to high noon, participants will be given a 15-minute tutorial on fast draw, which is basically a warm-up. Each competitor will have a world class fast draw shooter for support while on the line, as well as making available blank ammo plus the single-action six guns.
Only blank ammunition is used at balloon targets, placed eight feet away from the competitors.
Electronic timers decide the winners.
â€œOnce again, safety and fun will be the key â€˜aimâ€™ for all,â€ WFDA Area 20 vice chairman Den Robinson said.
