Howdy Cowboys, Cowgirls, and Friends,
I recently completed one of the most ambitious Cowboy Action Shooting videos I’ve ever put together and want to share it with you. I titled it: Popcorn Kelly’s Shoot-Out at Camden Mills 2022 – A Unique Perspective
Click here to view the video.
Unlike most cowboy action shooting videos, mine or others, which show single or partial stages of several match participants, this video chronicles three shooters through Illowa Irregular’s entire August, 2022 monthly match. The three shooters, JW James, Mountain Man Champ, and Foyster O’Rippy, agreed to participate in this cowboy competition – a sort of match within a match – with the winner being named Popcorn Kelly’s Shoot-Out At Camden Mills 2022 Champion. All shot on the same posse.
My purpose in creating this video is to highlight the competitive nature of our sport, often seen other sports, but not often seen in Cowboy Action Shooting. You’ll get a sense of the ebb and flow of the match as the lead changes hands a few times.
I’ll warn you, this is a long one, coming in at 39 mins. Think of this more as a television show than a short stage video – a sort of Wide World of Sports episode, crude as it may be. I also encourage you to watch it on a television if at all possible.
While I have your attention, we have Fall Round-Up coming up September 23-25, 2022. Get your registrations in soon.
Illowa Irregulars Cowboy Club submitted our application to host the SASS Illinois State Championship from August 18-20, 2023. The 2022 state championship was attended by 150 shooters from 16 states, and received rave reviews. We are planning to host another Saturday evening dinner cruise on the Mississippi River aboard the Celebration Belle, and are planning another unique event yet to be finalized. Look for our article in the next SASS Chronicle. Please consider putting the SASS Illinois State Championship on your shooting calendar. You’ll be glad you did. Stay tuned.
