Here is a link to a video I’ve wanted to make for some time: A video that captures the essence of the competition we all experience within the match. I titled this video Popcorn Kelly’s Shoot-Out at Camden Mills 2021.
Rules for this Shoot-out are simple:
A pre-selected group of shooters will shoot five stages as part of a regular monthly match;
These shooters are all placed on the same posse; with the,
Person with the lowest total time after the 5th stage being named the Popcorn Kelly Shoot-Out at Camden Mills 2021 Champion.
This Shoot-Out features three Illowa Irregular shooters who were consistently at or near the top of Illowa Illregulars’ rankings throughout the year. They are: Wicker Nash, Mountain Man Champ, and JW James.
During the video you will see and experience a stage-by-stage update as each shooter progresses through the match. There were at least 3 lead changes, with the last stage providing one of the most exciting and suspenseful endings one could imagine.
I hope you enjoy this alternative view of Cowboy Action Shooting – one of the most exciting of the action shooting sports.
This is Part 2 in a 2-part series highlighting Illowa Irregulars’ Fall Round-Up 2021. Part 2 is a video photo montage of snapshots taken during the match, set to music. Part 1 included videos of cowboys and cowgirls shooting the Side and Main Match stages, as well as a Special Announcement at the end. We hope you enjoy these videos, and consider joining us at some future match.
Fall Round-Up 2021 is in the history book. It was a spectacular weekend. 100+ shooters of all ages. Side matches were entertaining. Some Main match stages were fast and some were challenging.
