Congratulations to our new, and very first, Illowa Irregular Club Record Holders for having the fastest time in their category on the State Record Stage (in this case it was Stage 1). See the table at the end of this post. A couple of these times may exist for a while. We’ll see.

We will shoot the Record Stage again at the Illinois State Championship to set the initial Illinois State Champions Records as well as set and/or update any existing Illowa Irregular Club records.

May 21st Monthly Match Update

Oh my! We just returned from setting up the range for tomorrow’s match – what a beautiful start to our year. If you’re planning to be here, you won’t be sorry; if you’re on the fence, get down and head our way; or, if you’ve decided to not come, take a moment to reconsider. It’s going to be a wonderful day, AND, we’re going to shoot the Club Record Stage for the first time EVER! This same stage will be used at the State Championship to establish the first set of Illinois State Records (and update any existing Club Records). This will be a great opportunity for cowboys to set the very first Club Record, but you have to be here. Click here to download the stages. Here’s are a few pictures of what the Record Stage looks like, as well as a single image looking down our central pathway.

Come help us get the year off to a rousing start! Registration opens at 8:00 a.m. with the Safety Meeting at 9:15 a.m. The St. Jude’s ladies will be serving hamburgers and brats, drinks, chips, etc. As usual, all proceeds benefits St. Judes.
