Silverado's on again
Saturday, 31st May, 2008
The Silver City will look a lot like the wild west next weekend when the Silverado Shootout rolls into town.
The event sees competitors from all over Australia dressed in 1890 period costume and is a competitive shootout using weapons of the era.
More than 80 nominations have been received so far. The fun begins next Friday afternoon at the Broken Hill Pistol Club with a series of shoots, leading up to the Shootout itself on Sunday afternoon.
Everyone is welcome to come along and watch the action.
A fashion parade will be held on Friday night at the Mulga Hill Tavern. Shooters and their families will show off their costumes and be given prizes for the best dressed male, female, couple and youngster.
