  1. All 4 issues will still be provided digitally. Misty Moonshine
  2. UPDATE: The email below was sent to all IL Territorial Governors this morning: Dear Illinois Territorial Governors: One of the applicants have withdrawn their application, so please disregard the voting link/process for the 2020 IL State Championship. The applicant that withdrew, Cowboy Carty, had applied to host the IL State in IN at Paradise Pass- as they have done in the past for several years when there was no applicant/venue in IL. The motivation behind the application was to bring shooters together and ensure an IL state championship would continue. It was never the intention of the applicant- or the host range (Paradise Pass, IN) to cause a division amongst the members affected. On behalf of SASS, we applaud their efforts and true intention to continue to support IL shooters- and we implore all IL clubs and SASS members to view their intent as such- with gratitude. Once the second applicant came forward- albeit after the deadline- the original intent of Cowboy Carty/Paradise Pass’ application got lost in the mayhem and they felt they were not able (or allowed) to steer the process. After a conversation with Cowboy Carty, I assured him that he could, in fact, withdraw the application. So, they have. If the situation resulted in any feeling of a “line in the sand”… it’s time to remove it. To quote Cowboy Carty, “We are stronger together.” Hats off to Cowboy Carty and Paradise Pass for making this move. As such, the remaining applicant, The Midwest Gunslingers, will be awarded the 2020 IL State Championship. Respectfully, Misty D. Miller aka Misty Moonshine SASS #83232 Patron Life Chief Executive Officer The Single Action Shooting Society 215 Cowboy Way Edgewood, NM 87015 505.843.1320 Office 877.770.8687 Fax www.sassnet.com All: While I would prefer not to engage situations like this on the wire forum, due to the responses to several threads regarding this topic, I felt it suitable to post some information. I've spent the morning speaking with our Club Administrator, Ruby Ruthless- as well as the rest of the Wild Bunch. For future reference, the only real way to rally for official action is directly through the SASS office- not the wire forum. We find it truly disheartening that the discussion turned to SASS-bashing so quickly.. and in the same breath(s) refer to the Cowboy Way. As such, I have hidden both of the threads on the topic. I am also posting this reply as locked. The facts: - The deadline to submit an application to host a SASS Sanctioned match for 2020 was September 1, 2019. The applications and subsequent deadline have been posted on the website and available since January 2019. SASS does not offer extensions- this was clearly a miscommunication. The September 1 deadline provides SASS with the time to resolve any double applications (send to a TG Vote) and assemble our budget and planning for our upcoming fiscal year for Sanctioning costs. (SASS' fiscal year runs Oct. - Sept.) - Late last week, SASS received an application to host the 2020 Championship from another Illinois Shooter. The match was applied for to be hosted/organized by Illinois shooters, held in Paradise Pass, IN. (Paradise Pass had stepped up for several years and hosted the IL state in the past). - Because no other application had been received for IL- at about a month past the deadline, the application to hold the match at Paradise Pass was approved. (as is common in these scenarios) - As of today, 9/30/19, no application has been received for 2020 from Billy the Avenger and the Sparta crew. Resolution: In an attempt to resolve this situation, even though it is well past the deadline, SASS will be extending an offer in a direct communication to both parties that we will be sending the matter to a TG Vote. However, we cannot do this without an application from Billy the Avenger for 2020. Hopefully they will get it sent in as soon as possible so that we can let the TG Vote process get to work. Respectfully, Misty Moonshine Chief Executive Officer and Ruby Ruthless SASS Club Administrator
  3. That would be fun. I'll look into it. Thanks! Misty
  4. 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
  5. That is a great idea. I'll look into the logistics. And, again... the Four Aces ran for 3 months- not 3 days. Misty
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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

  11. 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
  12. 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.

      I found them.  Just forgot where to look.

  13. Misty - Who in SASS could give me a little history about one of our founding fathers, R.J. Poteet.

    Much Obliged

      I'd suggest emailing Hipshot. He can be reached at hipshot007@aol.com or give him a call at: 714-337-8004. He'll be happy to help, I'm sure.

      Thankyou kindly.

  14. There are no "techs" to hold out hope to see this and answer or fix. We don't have tech's.... our hosting service doesn't monitor our wire forums. All they do is maintain the software and keep it safe; installing upgrades, etc. The only way to get changes made is through SASS HQ- we communicate to the hosting service and do what we can to facilitate the request. I will have to contact them and ask them about Post #'s. If we can add them back, we will- but please understand that they are not software developers. Will do the best we can. As Allie mentioned on another post... I cant read every thread or post either... if there is something like this that comes up - don't just "hope" I happen to see it. Please reach out to me directly at misty@sassnet.com Misty Moonshine
