SPECIAL ACTIVITIES: We are also excited to announce two (optional) Special Activities during the SASS 2022 Illinois State Cowboy Action Shooting Championship:

  1. A Saturday evening Mississippi Riverboat Dinner Cruise aboard the Celebration Belle;
    • This will be a truly unique event in the annals of Cowboy Action Shooting,
    • Cowboy attire encouraged;  and,
  2. A Costume Contest (with roaming judges) for Best Dressed Woman and Man, and Junior Boy and Girl.

CAMPING: We are offering on-site dry camping, but there are also several full-service camping options in the area. See our Registration Form for more information.

OUR FACILITIES: Our cowboy town, Camden Mills, has 10 bays all with covered loading and unloading tables, and every bay has a carport to protect those waiting and watching from the sun and rain. Six of the bays have cowboy building facades. Also, the entire range is well-shaded, contained in a reasonably small area (short walks between stages), and the central pathway through the competition range is 100% paved. If you are unfamiliar with our range take a look at our Stage Photos section of our web page or just look around

180-shooter limit. We are placing a 180-shooter limit on attendance. The last Illinois State Championship drew 170 participants. Attendance predictions are always difficult, but it will have been a full three years since the last Illinois State Championship. Will demand be higher because of the gap? It’s hard to say. However, we’d hate to have someone miss the opportunity to shoot at the SASS 2022 Illinois State Championship because they delayed sending in their registration. It’s never too early to register to ensure you’re one of the fortunate 180.
