The Wisconsin Old West Shootists will be hosting the NCOWS 2017 Midwest Regional's on July 14th, July 15th and July 16th. This event will be held at the Wisconsin Old West Shootist’s (WOWS) beautiful range in Glenwood City, Wisconsin. Glenwood City is around a half hour from Menomonie, Wisconsin and an hour from the Twin Cities in Minnesota. Free camping is available for both primitive and modern campers.

Side matches and long range matches will be held on Friday. On Friday night everyone will be treated to a wonderful campfire supper. The evening campfire supper is a great opportunity to meet old friends and get acquainted with new friends. The camaraderie is as good as it gets. The folks at WOWS are among the friendliest folks you could hope to find.

The WOWS Range is “U” shaped and in a clearing surrounded by woods. There are eleven permanent stages. Each of the stages has a very well built structure that lends to the atmosphere and fun of Cowboy Action Shooting. The stages will be tied into historical events in the best traditions of NCOWS. Five stages will be shot on Saturday followed by a Banquet in the evening at a local Steakhouse. Five stages will be shot on Sunday followed by a fine lunch and the award ceremony along with a raffle.

If you enjoy the NCOWS Nationals in Evansville, you will definitely enjoy this great event. Everything about this event is first class especially the hospitality. Where could you see a shooter, Red Lodge Rambler shoot an 1858 Remington and load his extra cylinder on the clock. Where could you see a shooter Beartooth Billy shoot a clean match using four firearms that are all over one hundred years old? This event is what NCOWS is all about. This is truly a premier event not to be missed.

I was not able to attend this weekends Midwest Regionals. We were without electricity since Wednesday evening. We got our power back last night. The cause of the power outage was a flooded sub-station. We have some cleanup to do but it could have been a lot worse.

I deeply regret having to miss the 2017 Midwest Regionals. It is a great NCOWS event and would have been my sixth MWR in a row.

Attached are a few pictures from downtown Burlington, Wisconsin.
