Wisconsin Old West Shootists

June hosts 2 great events for WOWS.  June 10th and 11th is the 3rd annual Old West in the Hills Community Festival.  This is a non-shooting Cowboy Renaissance festival.  We will have numerous activities, games, and demonstrations including bullwhips, rope tricks, Dutch oven cooking, skits, and more.  Bring your friends, family, kids, and grandkids!  If anyone is willing to help out with the event, please contact Diamond Doreen.

June 25-26 is Smoke in the Hills, the SASS Wisconsin State Blackpowder Shootout.  We offer many categories, including a smokeless category for those who would rather not shoot the sooty stuff.  The main match runs both Saturday and Sunday with Long Range after the shoot on Saturday.  Match Directors Tracker Jack Daniels and Colonel Carbine have a great shoot planned.  You will find the Smoke in the Hills application attached, fill it out and join the fun!
