Northwest Shooters Win Big in Las Vegas
The Cowboy Mounted Shooting US Western Nationals was held in Las Vegas at the South Point Casino and Arena in late July/early August. There were over 60 participants from the Pacific Northwest and northwest shooters made their presence known in a big way. We certainly had the biggest and loudest cheering section with competitors from Washington, Oregon and Idaho cheering each other on, even in those classes where we were also competing against each other.
Finishing in the top 10 out of 277 contestants were Dan Kelley and Torrie Philippi of Boardman, OR. Class Winners: Ladies 1s – Tanya Kropf (OR); Ladies 5s – Rachel Peters (ID); Mens 2s – Josiah Haaby (OR);
Mens 3s – Darin Nagle (OR); Mens 5s – Dan Kelley (OR); Senior Lady 3s-Karen Smith (OR); Senior Mens 2s-Brent Patterson (WA); Senior Mens 6s-Blair Philippi (OR).
