The SASS 2023 Illinois State Championship
August 18-20, 2023
Mayhem On The Mississippi II
Illowa Irregulars and the Milan Rifle Club submitted its application to host the SASS 2023 Illinois State Championship from August 18th through the 20th, 2023. Mark your calendars and check back often. This is a match that you won’t want to miss. Registration forms coming soon.
3 days of cowboy action shooting fun with a couple of special activities thrown in for good measure, including another Saturday Evening Dinner Cruise aboard the Celebration Belle. Last year’s cruise was one for the ages. Here’s your chance to ride the river with us if you missed it.
Illowa Irregulars cowboy town, affectionately named Camden Mills, is situated just a couple of miles from the Mississippi River in a heavily shaded and grassy area of the Milan Rifle Club. Dust? What dust? Lush trees and grassy lawns and berms.
Camden Mills range features carports at every stage for additional cover from the sun and/or rain, covered loading and unloading tables at every stage, and a paved central walkway through the entire length of the range making it easy to move from stage to stage. Combine that with berms between every stage (shooters get back almost all of their brass at each stage) and you have a near ideal setup. The best way to see the range is to view some of the videos you can find along the right side of our homepage – www.illowairregulars.com.
The Quad City Area has more than enough hotels, restaurants, and other activities, located within just minutes of our range. There will be no issues finding reasonably priced nearby hotels with plenty of restaurants to choose from. Having said that, we anticipate naming a Host Hotel again.
If you are from Illinois, we are proud to host our second State Championship and hope you will consider attending. If you are from out of state and looking for a great match to attend, please consider adding the Illinois State Championship to your calendar. We are conveniently located near the junctions of Interstates 80 and 74, right along the Illinois/Iowa border. August is a great time in the upper Midwest. You won’t want to miss it.
Stay tuned for more information and check back often.
PS. Rumor has it there will be a new award offered to Illinois cowboys at this match, with a special pin being given to each Illinois resident winner (one per category). It’ll be exciting! More to come.
