CLASSIC COWBOY SHOWDOWN 2020

ARE YOU TOUGH ENOUGH?

 

I am once again throwing down a challenge to all the Classic Cowboy/Cowgirl Shooters for 2020!!   That is right,  a challenge has been issued for you take on the challenge of the Classic Cowboy Showdown!  Do you Accept?

 

I have had a lot of interest in bringing the Showdown to several clubs for 2020... and I appreciate all the offers I have received.  Thank You All! 

But for 2020 the Classic Cowboy Showdown will be held in conjunction with:

 

FORT DES MOINES RANGERS

The 2020 Sass Iowa State Championship

May 22 - 24th, 2020

http://www.fortdesmoinesrangers.com/

ENTRY: 

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1KxF2i6FA2F19FeWjritOoWpY2mcaej94/view?usp=drivesdk

 

This will be held over memorial weekend and you should be there!  Unless.... YOUR SCARED!?

 

 

The Showdown is something I started in 2017.  I wanted to get a big group of classic shooters together for a great match, so I put up a custom buckle for the top Classic Shooter!  In 2017 we had a group of about 7-8 classic.... followed by a few more in 2018... but in 2019 we had about 23 CLASSICS!!  So this thing is really taking off! 

 

So once again I am putting up an amazing buckle for the top Classic Shooter! ***We now have a buckle up for grabs for the top classic Black Powder shooter too!*** I would even put up a buckle for the Classic Cowgirls as well if we can get a few signed up!  Again this year, with some help from fellow shooters, we will also have some amazing 2" custom Conchos for several placements as well!

 

The Classic Category is, in my mind, the greatest category in SASS!  To shoot this category you have to be willing to not only dress the part, but also shoot the bigger caliber firearms!   So I urge you.. sign up for the Showdown in 2020 and come hang out with the greatest bunch of folks in SASS in Iowa May 22-24th, 2020.  Please help spread the word and keep checking back as many things will be added to this post.

 

I would like to do several things this year for the showdown.... including:

 

-  Classic Dinner ?

-  Speed Duelist and Hammered Side match ?

-  John Wayne Museum ?

 

If you have any suggestions please feel free to contact me.

 

Plan to attend, let me know and will add name to the list!

 

UPDATES :

10-29-19 **** A fellow Classic stepped up and offer up a Champion Buckle for the Top BLACK POWDER Classic Shooter!

 

11-8-19 **** Entries to the match are now available.

 

2-22-20 *** Black Powder Buckle has arrived.

Yaaaahooo!! Looking forward to hosting y'all. I'll see what kinda fun I can round up as this is my home club. 

 

     That's a busy weekend for the nearby John Wayne Birthplace Museum located in Winterset. They have the birthday celebration going on. The schedule of events for that is not out yet. 

      Indianola is the nearest town to the range and has good motels and restaurants.  My favorite stop after shooting is the Outside Scoop for Ice Cream. https://www.outside-scoop.com

   I'll check with the board. They have done it before. Right now the club is having the annual elections for the board members. After that we're gonna start planning the State match.
