SASS released the final list of the 500 people registered for EOT 2021. As you know, EOT will be held East of the Mississippi (Paradise Pass in Indiana) for the first time. Needless to say, this generated unprecedented interest in many cowboys and cowgirls in the Midwest, East, and South who historically found New Mexico just a bit too far away (Phoenix will be even farther). SASS exceeded the 500 shooter limit in just a few hours.
Here is the list of Iowa and Illinois cowboys/girls who made it on the Final list.: 9 Iowans and 39 from Illinois, many of which frequent Camden Mills. There are a few other recognizable and deserving names on the waiting list. Let’s hope they make it.
It’s also interesting to look at attendance from an East of the Mississippi/West of the Mississippi perspective. As you can see in the table below, just over 2/3’s of the registrants live in states East of the Mississippi.
The table to the right shows the breakdown by state. A closer look shows that 4 of the top 5, and 8 of the top 10 states in terms of number of registrants are from states East of the Mississippi, with Indiana tied with Texas for having the most participants.
Congratulations to the Illowa Irregulars and those that shoot with us on making the Final list. I’m sure there’ll be plenty of tales told, some taller than others.
Illowa Irregulars season will begin soon. Keep us in mind when planning your monthly shoots, and be sure to put some ammo back for Fall Round-Up scheduled for September 24-26, 2021.
