North Carolina Cowboys, Inc.

​The SASS North Carolina State Championship is made possible in large part due to the range made available by the Rowan County Wildlife Association and the home club, The Old North State Posse.

Rowan County Wildlife Association has been the setting for the SASS NC State Championship almost from its beginning.  A club house provides a comfortable location for registration and scoring activities during the entire match.  Ample grassed areas near the berms provides convenient parking for everyone along ​with areas for those who wish to camp at the range.  Well maintained graveled drives and areas next to the berms support our vendors and main tent so everything related to the match is at easy access to everyone.  RCWA is constantly maintaining and upgrading the range.  Each year is improved.

The Old North State Posse is the home club at the Rowan County Range.  They maintain a large inventory of targets and props used every year for this Championship.  Many of the volunteers that aid in set-up, take-down and general maintenance related to the match are members of this club.
