It’s always fun to rediscover things we’ve forgotten about or haven’t seen in a while. We ran across some old photos we feel are worth sharing – a few pictures taken of our original five stage facades, each of which is paired with an image of what the stage looks like today. I have it from some of our cowboy club’s wise men and women that the “Then” images were taken in late 2013.
As our 2022 season draws to a close and we prepare to move into a new year, we hope you enjoy this little look back from a short 10 years ago. We appreciate your support over the years and look forward to serving you in the years to come.

Our club met Saturday, November 12 to discuss our 2023 plans, set Match Directors for each of our monthly matches, and make other decisions related to our club’s activities. There are two changes of note we’d like to share with you here:
We are holding practices at 5:30 p.m. on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month, instead of midday Wednesdays;
Mid-morning Friday practices will continue to be held weekly at 10:00 a.m.; and,
Sad news again. A good friend and fellow cowboy shooter Marshal Chance Morgun (Michael Fisher) has passed. Funeral services will be held at 10:00 a.m., Monday, November 14, 2022, at McGinnis-Chambers Funeral Home in Bettendorf. Visitation will be held from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 13, 2022, at the funeral home. Click here for more information.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Marshal Chance Morgun and his family.
Here is a link to a video highlighting our November 6, 2022, match – our final match of the 2022 shooting season. It includes a few video snippets taken during the match, as well as special ending worth sticking around to see. I hope you enjoy it.
Thanks for your support this year. We look forward to doing it all again in 2023.
November 6, 2022’s results are available on the Illowa Irregulars Scores page. Please note that the Overall, Category, and Clean Match Results are in a single file. We had a fantastic turnout – 33 cowboys and cowgirls turned out on this beautiful November day. This is our last match of the year.
