Great news, the Wild Bunch match (Aug 15) and Cowboy match (Aug 16) are a go! Camden Mills survived yesterday’s wind storm with flying colors! While Stage 8 has a tree lying across its mid-section (see pic below), the rest of the town has only a few leaves and limbs strewn about. All storefronts survived intact.
Registration for the Aug 15 Wild Bunch match is at 10:00 a.m. with shooting starting about 10:30 a.m. Cost $5.00.
Registration for the Aug 16 Cowboy match is at 8:00am with the safety meeting at 9:00am. Cost is $10. Exact change is appreciated. Lunch will be available for purchase at the Cowboy match.
Hope to see you at Camden Mills this weekend. Yee Haw!
The July 18 Wild Bunch and July 19 Cowboy results are now available on the Illowa Irregulars Scores page. It was good to get our first match of the 2020 summer season under our gun belts. It turned out to be a wonderful day for a match – humid, but not as hot as predicted.
We’re looking forward to our August 15 Wild Bunch and August 16, 2020 Cowboy matches.
Several Illowa Irregulars attended the 2020 SASS Iowa State Cowboy Action Shooting Championship held July 3-5, 2020 at Coyote Gulch Range in Indianola, Iowa. It was an excellent showing for our club with five club members returning home as Iowa Champions – Whiskey Rick, Rootin Tootin, Dimpled Darlin’, Cowboy Rick, and Popcorn Kelly. Several others captured 1st place, 2nd place, or 3rd place finishes within their category. Badlands Charlie was one of only five clean shooters for the entire match (60 total shooters).

Special thanks go out to the Fort Des Moines Rangers and all the volunteers for their hard work hosting and organizing this event. Well done! The range was in excellent shape and the stages were well-written – challenging but entertaining, and temptingly fast. The weather cooperated this year – hot but manageable.
We hope to see you at Illowa Irregulars’ first match of the 2020 season scheduled for July 19th. Match Directors Mountain Man Champ and Daisy Ann have a great match planned. For more information visit our website at www.illowairregulars.com or email us by clicking here.
