This was my first end of trail, those were great times! I know some of these pards but forgot the names except the cowboy on the bottom left that's Mike Shellhart!   There sure were some fun stages back then. Von Dutch

Those pictures bring back memories of the old days.  I started in SASS in 1994... a lot of water under the bridge, and changes since then.

Fort Miller, Madera CA 1999.  I had all my hair then, and it was still brown!

Bernie, the Fort Miller match is in Clovis, Ca. It is Bigger and Better than Ever. Third Weekend in April. If yer still getting around you owe it yourself to make a run at it.

When were the early days for SASS? I just want to know if I am concerned apart of those days.

I consider the early days to be everything before me.  So yeah, you are one of the old timers. :)

I guess that it is all relative. For me, it is the Old Game and the New Game. At our club it's still the Early Days.

Hahaha!  Senior moment., I lived in MADERA then!  I may have to come down next year.  I consider the early days pre- 2000-2002 or so. They still had "The John Wayne Test" back then, most of the current stuff would not pass! LOL.  Mouse f@rt loads, Titanium firing pins, aluminum followers and short stroke kits ARE NOT from the early days. 

 

Rifle target would be 25-35 yards or more, pistol at 10-15 yards, and targets about 1/3 the size! Railroad Flat had a 50 yard bell in a bell tower.  Stages were scenarios with a script, props, and a theme.

My nickname for Lily has been "Smiley", always laughing and showing off those pearly whites!

I miss Paul Harvey.  In a crazy world with a lot of weird stuff in the news, it was a comfort to hear Paul's voice of reason on the radio at lunch time.

 

If you miss his "Rest of the Story" stories, check out Mike Rowe's "The way I heard it"

I consider everything pre SASS wire as old days.  So 2000.

  Yep, that's about with me: pre-SASS Wire and Pre- CAS City (the days of the old CAS-L BB).
