SASS 2024 Illinois State Championship Registration is Now Officially Open

Illowa Irregulars are pleased to announce that registration for the SASS 2024 Illinois State Cowboy Action Shooting Championship, scheduled for August 16-18, 2024, is now officially open. 

3 days of cowboy action shooting fun, a free Friday night pizza party, free Side and Warm-up matches on Friday, an optional Riverboat dinner Cruise on the Mississippi River aboard the Celebration Belle, and an outstanding Awards Banquet at the air-conditioned Milan Community Center.  We will also be setting up the State Record Stage as part of the main match, and using it to establish Illinois and Club records.  The State Record Stage layout is available on our website –

Claim a free raffle ticket:  As a small incentive encouraging you to send in your registration early, all registrants submitting their registration by December 31, 2023, will receive one free raffle ticket in their shooter packet as a thank-you for registering early.  Registrations must be postmarked on or before December 31, 2023, to be eligible.

Match Theme:  We are planning a special theme for the 2024 Championship which we are calling “Illinois Against the World.”  It’s based on the border war concept in which cowboys from one state collectively compete against a neighboring state’s cowboys (i.e., across the border).  In this case, it’ll be Illinois shooters (collectively) against all shooters coming from the surrounding states and beyond.  In keeping with the theme, each stage description will contain an interesting and unique backstory about Illinois. 

Of course, it’s just for fun – the only thing the winning side receives is bragging rights.

Sponsor Packet:  If you are interested in becoming a Sponsor other than a Stage Sponsor, or would rather use the paper form to submit your stage sponsorship, please click here to download the Sponsor Packet.

International Shooters:  On a related note, we are making efforts to entice an international SASS shooter or two to join us, making it truly an “Illinois Against the World” border war.  We’re not holding my breath, but we’re going to give it a go. 

Thank-you for your interest, and we look forward to seeing you at the 2024 Illinois State Championship.  

Happy trails,

Popcorn Kelly and Count Sandor; Co-match Directors
