Marshal’s Posse Shoot-Out

There is a rough and tumble group rolling into town on Western Days weekend. It’s a group of miscreants and reprobates that saunters into town once a year at this special time, The Valley Center Posse has been terrorizing and entertaining the citizens of this fine town for over 40 years.

“Calico” Craig Ames has been a senior member of this band of outlaws, floozies, and marshals since he joined in 1984 when the late Milo Thomas was the High Sheriff. He shares that the group was started out of a desire to recreate the 1800s and educate the youth of Valley Center about the heritage of this town. According to him, the Posse does it just for the fun of it. He also said that the actual story is not known, and likely never will be as there are no formal records and all the original members have “gone into that final sunset.”

This group will terrorize the town, including robbing the local bank the Friday of Western Days and walking the Parade.  Stay tuned for their shoot-out schedule.

…oh and they bring their floozies too.
