  1. Shooters at clubs are probably going to vote to change this safety rule, as they don’t want a penalty for it. It happens quite frequently because they aren’t called on it. Changing this safety rule is not fixing the real problem; it appears to be a reaction to minimizing the complaints of getting a SDQ penalty. The real issue is about TOs not making the calls; picking and choosing which rules they like and don’t like. I’d bet this happens at every match. I see comments to FB posts all of the time where shooters say they wouldn’t make the call in certain scenarios; even when it’s clear in the rules what the penalty is...because they don’t like the rule. ** Making the calls will change the behavior of the shooters to be more attentive to their firearms. ** I guarantee that most TGs aren’t going to explain the issues and risks of changing the rule to their club members. The reason I’m saying that is that most haven’t responded to past votes (per reports from the SASS office) and many don’t know the rules or reason for a rule. I would think that SASS as a whole (which includes the SASS office, the founders, the ROC, and the shooters) would want to maintain SASS’s reputation of being the safest shooting sport in the world. Would like the ROC and founding members to reconsider completely pulling out a safety rule based on a Yes/No vote (that doesn’t have a response for comments from the TGs for other considerations on the rule).
  2. SASS CAS has been tagged as one of the most safest shooting sports in the world. Taking away the LTO and potential issues with proposed rifle hammer change impacts the safety stance of this game. Clubs will usually say watch each other at the loading table - so they don’t have to have that extra person working it. Well, I rarely see people watching folks load their guns at the LT. If that were happening, then folks wouldn’t load 10 rounds on 9 round stage nor walk up to the line with a cocked hammer. Granted, an inattentive LTO may not catch it, but the LTO minimizes the risks more than rare occurrences of folks actually checking each other at the LT.
  3. If no starting position is given, then it is SASS default...UNLESS the Match Director overrides that. The MD can override stage conventions, such as the starting position, but cannot override safety conventions.
  4. So sorry to hear this. Knot and I will certainly lift up her family and friends in our prayers.
  5. Hello Dusty....I didn't build the ACES program and don't maintain it. I compiled these instructions back in 2013, for use with the SASS scoring program. I just recently updated the instructions. The web site for the ACES program is located here: https://acesscoring.com/ Pitt Viper and his crew built the program and may be able to answer your questions. Ken Nelson (Pitt Viper): ken@acesscoring.com pitt@acesscoring.com ken@kennelson.com
  6. I have updated the compiled instructions for using the Automated Cowboy Easy Scoring (A.C.E.S.) program in conjunction with the SASS Premier Scoring Program. The instructions are for use with Android devices as well as iPads (separate documents) and are available in PDF and MS Word documents. The steps include registering shooters using the SASS Premier Scoring program, syncing to a handheld device, scoring using A.C.E.S., and then syncing back with the SASS Premier Scoring program in order to generate reports. Other topics outlined in the documents include: Equipment needed (A.C.E.S. devices, Wi-Fi routers, etc.) Scoring staff needed Meeting with posse marshals Scoring official checklist, to include the use of the SASS Premier Scoring program for reports in a major match There are PDF and MS Word files for each. The MS Word documents are there if you want to modify it with your own match instructions. The files can be found on this site: A.C.E.S. Instructions using the SASS Premier Scoring Program
  7. Sorry for your loss. You're in our prayers. ...Shamrock & Knot
  8. Thanks for the update! I've been wondering how you have been doing, PWB. Glad you are doing better and that you have stopped trying to give us all a scare. Now heed the doctor's orders and don't over do it. You are family and we all care about you and want you to get better, cowboy. Have a Merry Christmas!
