The Illiana Rangers Cowboy Mounted Shooting Club was founded in 2001 by Bob and Pam Chattin. That first year they had 4 members go to The World Championships in Scottsdale, AZ. Members of The Illiana Rangers were the first winners of the Indiana State Championships, the Kentucky State Championships, the Michigan State Championships, and the Illinois State Championships. Rangers have also won the Ohio State Championships, Regional Championships, Reserve World Points Champion, Top Indiana Points, and held top rankings in the CMSA points for State, Regional and World. And, established the First Annual Indiana State Championships. Today the Rangers are an active and growing club with 41 families and 73 members. So far in 2008 the Rangers have added 37 new members!
Besides sponsoring shoots we hold practices and clinics for new shooters. We also put on numerous demonstrations for fairs, rodeos, parades, fund raisers, festivals and saddle clubs. Our main goal is to have fun; so, for our demos we have added clowns, races and staged shoot outs. You can read about some of these mini staged performances on our ‘Ranger News’ page and/or call anyone on the 'Contact' page for more information.
Our members are willing and able to help new members learn the tricks of the trade and become all that they can be. So, after you check out rest of this site and realize what a great sport this really is; jump over to the contact page and give us a call, E-Mail us or just show up for one of our shoots, demos, practices or clinics ~ it doesn't cost to watch and we'll be more than happy to answer your questions! Dates are on the Schedules page.
