Here is a link to Popcorn Kelly’s latest video. It contains a few videos and photos taken during Illowa Irregulars September 2023 Match, a hint about our October monthly match, as well as some very preliminary information concerning a potential 2024 Illinois State Championship.
This post is a re-published version of an earlier post in which October was erroneously mentioned as a likely state match month, when it should have been August. This is the corrected version.

Illowa Irregulars’ Cowboy Action Shooting Club wishes you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
2022 was quite a year for Illowa Irregulars and Camden Mills, our Cowboy town, beginning with our first match in April through our last match in November, plus we hosted the SASS 2022 Illinois State Championship for the first time, capping it all off with our annual Christmas Party held Saturday, December 3rd. As you can see in the image below, we had 30 cowboys, cowgirls, family and friends celebrating with us.
Thanks to everyone for being part of our llowa Irregulars family, friends, and acquaintances this past year. We are already making plans for 2023. Keep us in mind as you plan your shooting season. We’d love to have you join us!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Years,
Your friends at Illowa Irregulars

Click hereor on the image below to view a short match highlight video and photos, with a little music thrown in here and there. There are only a few actual videos to share, along with a handful of photographs. If you attended the match and don’t see yourself, you’ll certainly see photos/videos of others you know. The Clean Shooter and Rank Order Results also scroll at the end.
Here is the time markers of the various sections, particularly useful for those that want to skip my intro. 😉
Video begins at the 8 minute mark
Photos begin at the 15 minute mark; and,
Scrolling results begin at the 19 minute mark.
Take care and hopefully you’ll continue to attend our matches in the future. Look for information and registration forms on the Illinois State Championship to be coming soon. We’re planning to offer another Saturday night Riverboat dinner cruise on the Mississippi River next year and have one or two other things planned that should make the 2023 State match a unique and fun experience you won’t want to miss

The SASS 2022 Illinois State Championship Results are available on the Illowa Irregulars Scores page. We had 150 shooters start the match. While it was a little wet Friday morning for the first warm-up match, it cleared up in the afternoon for the second warm-up and remained dry the afternoon Side Matches and both days of the main match.
Matt Black and Turkey Legs for winning Overall Men’s and Ladies Shooters,
Billie the Avenger and Turkey Legs for taking top Illinois State honors by winning the 2022 SASS Men’s and Women’s Championships, respectively; and

Also, if I say so myself, the Saturday evening Celebration Belle Riverboat Dinner cruise was spectacular. Great weather, great food, but most importantly, it was being with the 93 cowboys, cowgirls, and some family members, many of whom were dressed hilt in their cowboy/cowgirl finery. Even the non-cowboys on the cruise were entertained having our fun group on the boat with them.
Thanks to everyone who attended, and hope you enjoyed the match. I know I speak for every Illowa Irregular when I say we truly appreciate your having attending the match, and hope you will consider returning for future matches.
