  1. That would be fun. I'll look into it. Thanks! Misty
  2. Phantom, I can certainly appreciate your view point on this- our SASS #'s have meaning and have become a moniker for our time in SASS. I was offered/gifted a lower number about 8 years ago. I took it over for awhile, but it just felt wrong. So, after just a few months, I switched back to my original #83232- with pride. However, I need to point out that this is far from the first time a new(er) member took over a lower number. This practice has been going on since the beginning of SASS. Some folks take over a deceased parent's SASS number as a way to honor them, etc. There are numerous folks that have much lower numbers than the number they were issued originally. For example- Justice Lily Kate- her original SASS # was somewhere in the 38000's. But the Judge gifted her with 1000... (fun story about who/what SASS #1000 belonged to before Katie- ask the Judge or Kate to tell ya!)... another example, Coyote Calhoun- his original number wasn't 201- it was in fact, much higher. So, as you see- this is far from the first time- and the practice has had no real effect on the perception of SASS numbers within the organization. I applaud Griff's generosity during a very difficult time- and this was for a great cause. Misty
  3. That is a great idea. I'll look into the logistics. And, again... the Four Aces ran for 3 months- not 3 days. Misty
  4. I can certainly appreciate your point. It was a short term raffle that would’ve benefitted from a wire post in addition to the direct emails (one that was sent in June), the homepage ad, the post on FB, and the promoting during EOT. I can’t change it now, but what I can do is promise that I’ll do better in the future to include making wire posts about SASS promotions. Thank you for your feedback and interest. I only wish you’d offered the criticism without the insinuation of something shady- when you bring our (my) integrity and the integrity of the raffle into question, it’s simply not ok- and certainly not contributing to the success of SASS. Misty
  5. Huge Congratulations to Joshua Falks of Gonzales, Texas (the member who will be formerly known as Voodoo Jack, SASS #107032- WINNER of the Four Aces, SASS #1111 Life Membership Scholarship Raffle! Also- a huge thank you to all who supported this raffle- we raised over $2000 for the SASS Scholarship Foundation! And- of course- special thanks to Griff. Misty Moonshine
  6. Are you referring to the price of a Guest badge? ("...charging spouses to watch the match.") Seems like you were provided with incorrect information, Assassin. Definitely a misunderstanding or incorrect assumption. No one is every charged to come and watch the match (except for the public on 2 days when we amp up the entertainment.) A guest badge must be purchased if a guest plans on sticking around after 5pm for any of the evening activities. We provide/host activities and receptions almost nightly that include free food, drink, etc. for our attendees - additionally, due to our event permits we have to keep evening activities "private" for only our registered guests- Hence, the "Guest badge". I have always been mindful of the "Value of the cost of admission", so to speak. I'm confident that- if you come to EOT and actually attend all of the scheduled events offered to you, you'll certainly feel like you got your money's worth. Misty
  7. This raffle was launched in June- it was advertised! It was on the SASS homepage on the website for 3 months, and was also in several member bulletin email broadcasts to all members. I can assure you we wanted a whole lot more entries that we received- it is for a great cause- the SASS Scholarship! I'm not a fan of your insinuation. Misty
  8. ***Edited to add: I do not want to hijack this thread for this topic- lots of great info here on EOT and WR!! (BTW- I vote for both equally!) I am happy to respond and discuss items like this directly, or in a separate thread. However- I did feel like a response here was appropriate. - Misty Palo Verde, Your post makes me realize that I need to issue an updated member report to all SASS members regarding the business structure and operations information... and our vision for the future and longevity of SASS. Yes, SASS (me, actually) did announce several years ago that the goal was to transition into a non-profit organization. That goal has yet to be reached. 30+ years of business structure has to be carefully unwoven before we can truly consider that as an option. Not only do I contend, but I guarantee you that not a single dime of EOT (Museum) funds are co-mingled with SASS funds/accounting. END of TRAIL is run through a separate company- the SASS Western Heritage Museum. SASS does do one thing- we donate all SASS employee labor costs to the event by not charging out out employee labor- only contract labor is paid directly out of the Museum/EOT. I am in the process of building an EOT SASS Member report for distribution that will outline the attendance information, the survey results, our action plan, and the financial picture. I think SASS members will be pleased to see such transparency. Stay tuned. No apology needed. I realize that for some, trust is a difficult thing to gain. I have been with SASS since 2009. (February 2019 was my 10 year SASS-anniversary!!) I cannot speak to anything stated in an article from 12 years ago. I can only speak to what I do know- and I absolutely know, without a doubt, that in all of my tenure here, not a single penny has ever been "skimmed" from the Scholarship fund for any reason. Quite the contrary actually- SASS covers all the administrative, banking, registrations, maintenance, etc. fees for the SASS Scholarship Foundation so that every penny donated goes to the kids. Proudly. Erasers aren't needed, but what is needed is a little distance and perspective. Trust me, I get it- I've spent the last 10 years rebuilding a lot of bridges. Lets start focusing on some of the good, the accomplishments, the changes, the evolution. It simply isn't right to crucify current staff/management for something that was the work of predecessors. It is the past and I (we) cant change it... but we certainly can learn from it! I have always been open and honest with my fellow SASS members. I say, lets build a "new" history of SASS- through open communication and transparency. Together. Respectfully, Misty
  9. No sir. But END of TRAIL is a SASS Western Heritage event. It is run through our Non-Profit- has been for over 10 years now. Misty
  10. So is END of TRAIL. (A non-profit, that is) Little known fact or false preconceived notion- not sure. Respectfully, Misty Moonshine

Just like the waddies of the Old West, END of TRAIL waddies are Cowboys who come to Founders Ranch to help out in our busiest time- END of TRAIL!

In addition to "a dollar a day and "found" (food)" as was traditional in the Old West, all hours spent volunteering as a Waddie qualify for the Founders Ranch Waddie Volunteer reward program. Waddies will recieve $5 Volunteer bucks for every hour volunteered- to be spent on any SASS or Founders Ranch sponsored event, merchandise, range fees, or membership. A special pre-event Welcome and Thank you dinner at the Ranch house hosted by the Wild Bunch will be held early in the event- as well as a post-event dinner at a local restaurant as a small sign of our thanks.

  13. A note to all Forum Users: The goal of the SASS Wire Forums is to provide a fun and resourceful place that users can come and discuss topics in regards to SASS and Cowboy Action Shooting. We also want to celebrate free exchange of information and conversation, and realize that "spirited" discussion can happen at times when the subject matter is one that we feel passionately about. It can be a challenge to express ideas and opinions in the written word and nearly impossible to judge intent of the manner of which it is intended. Please keep that in mind when posting on the forums- be considerate of the challenges we all face when trying to communicate on the SASS Wire. We are not looking to curtail expression- everyone has their opinions and are entitled to them. We want to make sure that everyone is able to participate fully and express themselves without fear of ridicule. There IS a difference between a debate and an argument. Arguments are disrespectful and will not be tolerated. Treating each other with respect is paramount. Please be considerate of the challenges that we all face when trying to communicate on the SASS Wire. Please refer to the following excerpt from the Guidelines: Inappropriate or offensive content and disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. To assist in defining inappropriate content, ask yourself the following questions when making a post: - Is this message SASS-related? (with the exception of the Saloon forum) - Is this message something most members would like to read? - Does this message add value to the forum? - Is this something I would say to a person face-to-face? *If you cannot answer yes to all of these questions, please reconsider posting your message. IGNORE FEATURE TIP: If you find there is a forum user that you no longer wish to see posts from,-regardless of the reason, there is a feature built in to the SASS Wire Forums that allows you to "IGNORE" a User. There are a few ways this can be accomplished. You can either hover over the member's icon that you wish to ignore and a "Ignore" option will come up- taking you to your Ignored Users page within YOUR account. This is where you can manage the content you see within the Forums. You can also arrive at your Ignored Users page within your account by clicking on the down arrow next to your name/account info in the top right corner and select "Ignored Users". This is similar to "unfollowing" someone in Facebook. Thank you, Misty Moonshine & the SASS Wire Moderating Team
  14. Misty, 

    I know a new RO II course is on its way, and thank you for the new RO I course.  Where can I find the old RO II materials now?  I can’t find them on the wire, so I must be looking in the wrong place.
