NMSO XX – SASS PA State championship 2019

North Mountain Shoot Out XX will be held May 24-26, 2019.  This is the 16th year that El Posse Grande has hosted the SASS Pennsylvania State Championship.  Since our match falls on Memorial Day weekend we have chosen to build our theme around our veterans and patriotism.  The cowboy spirit embodies a strong love of country and duty to it.  It is for that reason we have chosen My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys as our match title. The 2019 match will honor Tom Selleck.  Mr. Selleck is a veteran of the California National Guard and well known as an actor with roles in several cowboy movies.  He is also a proud member of the NRA where served on the board of directors and as spokesman.
