The Rio Epitaph

Home of the Rio Salado Cowboy Action Shooting Society

Welcome to the new "Rio Cowboy's Epitaph", the new web site for the Rio Salado Cowboy Action Shooting Society. Over the next few months we will be adding to the site to make it as useful as possible for all of you cowboy action shooters. In the mean time we'll do our best to keep you posted on match dates, monthly stages, and monthly match scores. In addition we will post dates for any practice/orientation shoots and any other events coming up. So stick with us and check in for the new content.

Tom Ingoglia, AKA, C.S. Fly, SASS #5078, left us on February 20th, 2015, at the age of 70. 

C.S. Fly founded the Rio Salado Cowboy Action Shooting Society 24 years ago and is Rio Ranger #1.  He was a past President and “Shoot Boss” of Winter Range and a Winter Range Trustee and “Rough Rider” #8.  He is a recipient of the Winter Range Founders Award.

SASS recognized Tom’s achievements and awarded him SASS Regulator, SASS Territorial Governor and inducted him into the 2007 SASS Hall of Fame. 

 C.S. Fly, SASS #5078, and Claudia Feather, SASS #2816, will always be remembered as Proprietors of Wild West Mercantile.   It was the early 1990’s when they realized the need to have a place to shop for Old West clothing.  With Tom’s business savvy, hard work, long hours, and their dedication to support SASS and Cowboy Action Shooting they built a very successful business. 

Tom, you left us much too soon and we will hold our memory of you in our hearts as we continue your dream to preserve the color, the romance, and character of the Old West.

In memory of

Tom Ingoglia, AKA, C.S. Fly

May he rest in peace.
