This announcement deserves its own post. Costa Rican Kidd just informed us that Saturday, November 5th’s Wild Bunch Match is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.
Please note that Sunday, November 6th’s Cowboy Match is still a go. This will be our last match of the season. Come on out and help us close out one of our best years ever.
Congratulations to all Illowa Irregulars and friends who attended Land Run 2022. It was a spectacular week. A total of 680 shooters attended the match, with several local shooters coming home with awards, and those that didn’t represented our club well and came home with fond memories. Click here to view the results.
Here are a few of the awards our local and regional shooters earned (sorry if I missed anyone):

October 16, 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 20 Cowboys and Cowgirls shoot with us Sunday. It took a bit longer to post these results as two of the people involved with scoring and posting of the results were attending Land Run. Nevertheless, here they are. Better a little late than never.
