The OFFICIAL T-Shirt of he 2014 Red Bastien's TX Shoot Out! This year we are commemorating all of the greats being inducted into the PWHF, but especially two of the North Texas area's greats, Gary Hart and Bruiser Brody along with our Patriarch, RED!!!
There are only a few printed each year, along with only a dozen hats. These commemorative shirts and hats are available at the Shoot Out for the "boys" BUT if there are any left over they will be made available to the public here on the website. (Pictured above the Front, below the Back with complete list of Inductees)
Again, these are one of a kind printing, commemorating this great time in our lives!
Shirts will be $20 each (if available) and hats will be $15 each.
2014 Red's TX Shoot Out info is being emailed, posted on PRIVATE FB group, mailed and for some of you Pony Expressed out! The LOCATION has been confirmed in the Dallas County area.
For those of you coming from out of State or from other parts of TX, we can announce that it is just about 30 minutes from Love Field Airport but for anyone using D/FW, it's not very much further from there. If anyone needs a ride to and from, just give us a call & I'm sure something can be arranged.
Watch your inbox's, mailboxes and driveways for all the Information.
Also, we are going to change up the activities for the day slightly so watch for that info as well!
God Bless and See You ALL on Feb. 8th!!!
The 2014 Shoot Out is almost here; Saturday, February 8th!
As with Every year, the Shoot Out is strictly for the men and women involved in the Business of Professional Wrestling, past and present. At a time where we can meet and mingle, eat and exchange stories both old and new. A time where veterans can spend time with "youngsters" of the business and exchange thoughts, ideas, and more stories... Red started this group for the "Boys!", meaning No Fans are Allowed at the Shoot Out. If you are one of the Boys and haven't attended a Shoot Out, you need too. Each year it seems there is someone that we loose and doesn't get to return....
This year's luncheon is being held at a Metroplex location, but as always is NOT published except to the Boys! So if you are involved in Wrestling, a legitimate organization, a wrestler (past or present) that knows what Kayfabe means, then send us a email via contact page to be added to the list. Don't be offended if we ask for references and history, if we don't know your name! It's the way Red wanted it!
See you all on February 8th!
For those of you Fans that are interested in the Shoot Out, we are STILL discussing locating a show where the fans can be involved later that evening. So become a site member to be the notified of any site updates....
God Bless, CJM
The TX Shoot Out was started by Flyin' Red Bastien, with help from Larry Dwyer, in 2003 (originally much earlier but those were lunches with a few friends) as a reunion luncheon for wrestlers in & around the Dallas/Ft. Worth area (or those that wrestled here throughout the years). With Red's health in decline & Larry becoming so busy that the torch or organizing the event has been passed to Cowboy Johnny Mantell & "K" (Tygress Lourdes) Downs. They hope to make this annual event a afternoon where guys & gals from all over can return to the Dallas / Ft. Worth area and revisit so many wonderful memories & people from their past.
This is John, Cowboy Johnny Mantell, with Red Bastien at the 2008 TX Shoot Out held in Dallas, TX.
Fun is had by ALL!
John kissing Flyin Red Bastien!
