I’m here to clarify some of the topics brought up in this post.
It is a fair assumption that, if a club is not listed on the website or in the Cowboy Chronicle, that club has not renewed their SASS affiliation. Renewing a club’s affiliation is simple- you can find the form here: https://www.sassnet.com/clubs/CLUB AFFILIATION-App-2pgs-2020.pdf
There is an annual fee for club affiliation- of a flat $50. When the club affiliation program was re-vamped some years ago, I understand that the first year the affiliation fee was set on a sliding scale- a nightmare to track! So, after that first year, it was decided to go to a flat $50/year rate for affiliation.
In order to qualify for SASS affiliation, the club is required to “Maintain no less than 50 % of its total membership in SASS®. (As stated in the Club affiliation application)" This requirement does not apply to match attendees- only to dues paying club members. In terms of verification- we trust our clubs and their representatives to be truthful and honest; the Cowboy Way.
