KOTV news anchor and reporter, Tess Maune will be the guest marshal for the next “High Noon Shoot out” this Saturday at 12 noon at the J.M. Davis Arms and Historical Museum in downtown Claremore.
“We are very excited about Tess Maune being the guest marshal on Saturday”, said Marshal Rick Neighbors of the Tri-Sate Gunfighters. She has a history with reenactments with her grandfather being a reenactor in El Reno. Any outlaws better beware, Tess has a history with a six gun and can handle herself in a fight.”
The Tri-Sate Gunfighters dress in 1870’s style clothing and use replica old west firearms. The reenactment group are made up of citizens from area towns such as Broken Arrow, Claremore, Dewey, Owasso, Tulsa and Wagoner.
Skits include a street shoot out, jail break and bank robbery. The High Noon Shootout is free and open to the public.
“We’ll be deputizing any young cowpokes that wants to join us on Saturday”, said Neighbors. “We’ll need all the help we can get to clean out the town of these desperados”.
Born and raised in El Reno, Tess Maune is about as “Oklahoma” as a girl can get. Tess is the morning anchor and reporter for the News on 6. She has covered all sorts of stories around northeastern Oklahoma since she started with KOTV more than seven years ago. When Tess is not on TV, she’s probably out in the woods or on the water with her husband hunting, fishing or noodling, (her biggest hand-caught fish weighed 52 pounds!). She is honored to tell stories of so many Oklahomans through her reports on News on 6 and she is proud to help showcase the wonderful Oklahoma outdoors. Tess says being a part of the High Noon Shootout is extra special to her because her grandpa loved history. As a child she remembers her grandpa dressing up for reenactments and celebrations around her home town.
