My SASS badge number is 11869, my new membership card shows I've been a member since 12/31/1996. I'm pretty sure that is wrong. My membership certificate has no date on it. I went to my first SASS match in 1992 and the bug bite me bad. I don't think I waited 4 more years to join. If you have a badge number close to mine and know when you joined, let me know. Appreciate it.

I signed myself and Sassparilla Kid up in...  '95, I think, or '96.  We're 8967 and 8968 ~ "Gee, Dad!  It's the same upside down!"

 

He was four or five at the time.  ^_^

 

I upgraded him to Life when he was twelve.  :)

 

So Bill, are you trying to figure out which of the new "Landmark Pins" you qualify for?  They are kinda cool...  :rolleyes:

LaVista Bill:

     Based on the above responses so far, it appears your date falls in line.

My number is 3935 and my original card, which I still have, expired in 1995.  My last card says I've been a member since 1999

Keep in mind, folks, that the numbers are not necessarily sequential.

 

Blocks of numbers used to be set aside to sign up people in person at different venues, such as major matches.  Also, members of the Wild Bunch would carry new member "kits" with them when they visited various clubs.

 

But I'd suspect they're close enough for estimating purposes.   :)

A simple phone call to Misty, or any of her fine staff, would clear up the mystery. ;)

Petey is 16437; I'm 35667.  I only joined (since I don't shoot) when we first went to EOT (around the turn of the century) and you had to be a member to be in the berms.  I honestly cannot remember the chronology -- I do remember he shot a couple of Mule Camps without me, and we (jointly & severally) only missed one, for the wedding of Almost-Daughter #2.

Hey Pat,

EOT was in April back then. Stayed in April for the first couple of years at Founder's Ranch and was only moved to June because the weather in Albuquerque was so bad. Monsoon season I think.

 

SASS shows my join up date as June 1991, but that can't be correct because I shot my first EOT in April 1991 with my first alias of Josh Randall. I also remember buying my first rifle, a Marlin 1894S before Jan '91 because that's when CA imposed the 10 day wait on long guns. I'm pretty sure I joined sometime in late 1990.

My card was signed with a quill pen.  I hold Badge #1286 Life and my card says I joined in 1990.  There weren't any posses near where I lived at the time but it looked like so much fun that I figured someday a posse would come around so I joined SASS.

Howdy, Shoer!  :)

 

The SASS Member Bulletin of January 01, 2019, had that picture with this description:  ;)

 

 
Quote

 

SASS is proud to announce that beginning with the January 2019 renewal mailings- we will be sending membership landmark pins to our annual members who have reached 5 year increment landmarks. These pins will be included in your renewal notices for 2019. While only a small token of our appreciation of your years of support and membership as an annual member, we hope you will wear the pin with pride.
The landmark pins will be distributed throughout 2019 for members who originally joined SASS in the following breakdown:
30 year pins :: join date 1988 & 1989
25 year pins :: join date 1993 & 1994
20 year pins :: join date 1998 & 1999
15 year pins :: join date 2003 & 2004
10 year pins :: join date 2008 & 2009
5 year pins :: join date 2012 & 2013
It would be extremely cost prohibitive to send pins to all SASS members all at once, so- each year, the dates will change for which join dates are sent pins appropriately. Each members landmark date (5/10/15/20/15/30) is rounded down to the appropriate landmark pin. If a members landmark date can be "rounded up" to the next landmark, no pin will be issued until the next landmark is reached.
