****THE ORIGINAL VENUE WITH THE FORT DES MOINES RANGERS, IN IOWA, HAD TO BE CHANGED DUE TO A DATE CHANGE BECAUSE OF THE CURRENT COVID-19 CRISIS.   WE ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE A GREAT CLUB HERE IN KANSAS, THE FREE STATE RANGERS, LET US JOIN IN ON THEIR ANNUAL MATCH FOR THE YEAR****

 

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?  Below is where you can find more info for this great match!

 

***NEW VENUE***

 

"BORDER WARS"

OCTOBER 16th - 18th, 2020

FREE STATE RANGERS

Parker, KS

https://freestaterangers.com

 

ENTRY:  

https://freestaterangers.files.wordpress.com/2020/06/border-wars-2020.pdf

 

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.  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 ?

 

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

 

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

 

WHO'S COMING LIST:

Major Art Tillery (KS)

Pony Soldier (OK)

3 Shot Shamrock (MO) * BP *

Asa Smith (KS) * BP *

Wymore Wrangler (NE)

Bulldog Brown (KS)

Largo Casey (NM) * BP *

Which annual match? Spring Roundup (is this match still on?) or Border Wars in the fall? Dates?

Sorry hit wrong button and it posted before I was done editing it.  Border Wars In the fall October 16th - 18th.  

 

I had that weekend scheduled off at work already so it works out great.  I hope you can make it, may be a busy month for matches!  Think I may even shoot the Henry!

Got it changed... That script was a little harder to read.   Hope you can make it... Bonus is new venue should be less of a drive.  Neat range out in the trees... The folks that put it on do a good job.

Major, can you give us a link to Lodging in the area, in the past years ago it was pretty sparse...

 

Dont mean to step on the Major's toes, but here is some info.  NCOWS will be holding their National Championships at the Free State Rangers in August, and on their page they have a list of hotels.  See, http://www.ncowsnationals.com/2020_Lodging.html  For more selection you might also look at Olathe, Kansas, about a 40 minute drive to the north.  They have a number of hotels at differing levels. See,https://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&client=tablet-android-samsung&source=android-browser&q=olathe+kansas+hotels

So planning on having a classic Cowboy side match stage.   What do you all think of this?

 

Must be shooting Classic Cowboy /Cowgirl and meet the needed criteria.

 

Side matches incude:

 

Fastest Stage

Fastest Duelist/Double Duelist

Fastest Hammered

Fastest 87

Fastest Rifle

Fastest 1860 Henry

 

I think this would be a hoot!!!

 

Let me know your thoughts.
