Trinidad slim is that tall feller in the back?  Boy he sure looks familiar.

The late, great, much missed, Griff's Girl, SASS#14 at 1990's EOT... I forget which stage.  (I think that was the last year for the CA Range Masters doing the officiating.  A LOT of folks got burned ordering videos that were never produced!

This was a great collection of pictures and tribute to everyone involved in the past.

 

I have recently joined SASS after many years of thinking about joining.  Back in the early 90s I belonged to the same range as McCloud and he took me to a few matches.  It was great seeing pictures of him (I never realized at the time that he was the first Senior champion).  I distinctly remember driving down to the matches with him.  I also remember getting him into Harry Connick Jr. (when he had his big band sound) and gave him some tapes that he really liked.  He was surprised that a young kid like me was into big band music lol.

 

Looking back I wish I would have joined back then, but I guess I was just too young and dumb.

 

Thanks for everyone  posting these great pictures.  It has brought back memories for even an outsider like me.  I have to admit that this thread pushed me to joining SASS just a couple of days ago.  I am not getting any younger and I have always wanted to get involved, and seeing all of these old pictures really pushed me over the edge.
