This is Sparta

Recommended Posts

The Kaskaskia Cowboys are pleased to announce "The Sparta Summer Shootout". It will be held on Saturday June 10, 2017 at The World Shooting and Recreational Complex in Sparta, Il.

 

The entry fee for "SSS" is $45 and includes lunch and entry into a practice match, a mini WB match, and a drawing for giveaways, and of course the eight stage main match.

 

The practice match and mini WB match will be held Friday June 9, 2017.

 

Entry forms will be available on our website kaskaskiacowboys.com in the coming weeks, and I will post more info as I remember it and as it becomes available.

 

If you have wanted to shoot at Sparta or have shot here in the past and wanted to return, save the date.

 

Hope to see you there.

 

This is Sparta,

BTT, because some people might still think we are not having matches. We have been having monthly matches for most of this season. But this will be our first annual since the range was closed.

Forgot to mention camping will be available, but must be reserved and paid for through the state of Illinois. Campsites are on the grounds, but about a mile away from the cowboy range. If needed we can arrange transportation to and from the campsites.

I will go on record again and say Sparta has the best Cowboy shooting range in the World. Parking,RV Camping spots,steel,shooting berms,thousands of hotel rooms within 30 miles and some of the best darn cowboys and girls you'll ever meet.And to top everything off Walk Mart has AA featherlites, all the time.

Thanks for all the kind words, gentlemen and lady! I did not want to respond until I had more info.

 

Applications are available on our website kaskaskiacowboys.com. Thank you, Miss Weev and Shyanne and Mr. Russ. Click the tab for Sparta Summer Shootout for info and link to app.

 

Camping can be reserved at reserveamerica.com.

 

Just got a call with questions about the match. Why do I feel like a snow flake just starting to tumble down a big hill? :lol:

 

Hope to see you all there.

Got some more info for everyone signed up or considering attending "SSS".

 

The theme this year will be "The Magnificent Seven, Then and Now".

 

Most any cowboy is familiar with the 1960 film and I am sure many have seen the recent remake.  So sign up and give us your best Steve McQueen or Denzel Washington impersonation.

 

We still have openings available.  Information and entry forms are on our website:  Kaskaskiacowboys.com

Any place that has over 1000 full service campsite on the grounds is special.

You got that right, Noz.  It looks like a city all to itself when it is full.

If it will help tempt you we are having side matches and a WB match on Friday before the main match.  We felt having a one day main match would help minimize the shooter's hotel needs.  But I sure understand not wanting to spend most of the day on the road.

If only I lived closer, I'd be there. It is a wonderful place. I had so much fun the time I attended the U.S. Open there!

We sure enjoyed having you.  You are welcome back anytime.

Blackwater,

 

Absolutely, while advance notice helps with awards and meals and so forth. We want to accommodate as many shooters as best we can.

 

Come on up and shoot with us.

If you are thinking about signing up but need a little nudge, your entry gets you a chance for a IAC M97 and a Ruger 10/22.

 

Boxes of ammo and shot shells and several other items round out the door prizes.

 

Did I mention every shooter gets a pair of Smith & Wesson shooting glasses by Radians.

 

The match is just over a month away.  Do not get left out, years from now you can tell friends you attended the first "SSS".

 

Applications are available on our website kaskaskiacowboys.com

 

This is Sparta!

Ok everyone we are less than a month away.

 

I have a round count for the 8 stage main match.  80 pistol, 80 rifle, and 32+ shot gun should get you through the main match.  Plan on 30 pistol, 30 rifle and 12 to 20 shotgun for the three stage warm up match.  I have not seen the stages for the WB side match, but figure on 30 rifle and 18 to 30 shotgun.  If past experience holds true bring bunches of pistol ammo, my guess would be 75 should do, but I am bringing more.

 

Hope to see you all there.

Round count for the Wild Bunch will be 70 Pistol, 40 Rifle and 24 Shotgun as we hope to shoot 4 stages if time allows. Lead goes down range at 1:00 for Friday's Wild Bunch side match and Warm up match. Same day sign ups are welcome, but a call would be appreciated if you are coming. Hope to see you there.

In an earlier post I mentioned feeling like a snowflake tumbling down a hill.  Well, I am loaded up and headed to the range in a few minutes and it feels like I am in an avalanche.

 

Yee Haw, what a ride.

 

See you all there.

Rudy,

 

Thank you for the kind words.  You and Lady Cheyenne were great additions to a great posse.

Any scores posted?

Not yet, probably this afternoon or tomorrow.  Check our website and our facebook page.  one may get posted before the other.

 

SPOILER ALERT:  Missouri Lefty won first over all.  Okaw was first and I was second in Outlaw.  And that is about all my feeble brain could retain.

 

Congratulations to all the category winners.

 

And thanks again to everyone who attended.

The SPARTA SUMMER SHOOTOUT was another fabulous event  at Sparta hosted by the Kaskaskia Cowboys, led by Phiren Smoke and Boben Weev.

we had great stages, a nice breeze, and super food (from Mike, The Butcher's Block).

It was a fine day of competition.
