Raffle for the Four Aces "1111" SASS number

Recommended Posts

Just got this today in my email (September 1, 2019)

Drawing to be held on September 1, 2019

 

Just as well, I do not deserve such a low number.

It could be possible SASS only wanted a few to enter.

Maybe there was someone specific they wanted to win?

I got the notification yesterday and entered. It’s a neat idea and a good cause. Maybe a small advertising snafu, but let’s cowboy up and support the scholarship fund!

Why not just donate without the hook of a false membership number?

Terrific plan, and the SASS Scholarship Fund benefits.

 

Well done!   ;)

OK, I'm confused.

 

Some folks seem to be indicating that SASS numbers and aliases are transferrable and inheritable.  

 

Other seem to indicate that numbers (and aliases) are personal, and should not (or cannot) be sold or inherited or re-assigned.

 

Which is it?

Not a false number.  This was my idea, not SASS's.  Call me and I'll give you the full story:   214-336-8840.  Every detail as I remember it some 32 years later.

False in the sense that the person that gets it probably wasn't around the game when 1110 or 1112 was issued.

"Circumstances" dictate what can be done.  All needs to be done with the agreement of the SASS HQ, or in this case, the Wild Bunch themselves.   Generally speaking, no, numbers are not transferable, and not re-issued;  but in this case I don't profit, the beneficiary is the SASS Scholarship Fund, so the WB agreed.

Since this is clearly being done in a public forum, I don't think anyone will be under any presumption that they've been in SASS longer than they, themselves present.  Numbers were not always assigned in a straight chronological order.  Batches of numbers (Badges) were given out to various representatives in parts of country to sell memberships.   In fact, I still wonder what happened to the "200"s.  I don't recall ever seeing a badge in this series.  Like I said, call me and I'll give you the full story..

Hey just saw this. A great cause and 100% legitimate. All proceeds going to sass scholarship fund. That is a real number and alias that has the rare blessings of  the wild bunch to be transferred. Could this possibly be the coolest number and alias combination in existence? I think so! Dusty B.

Thank you Griff.  Donations to the scholarship fund encourage younger shooters which all shooting sports need.

Not true. You are buying a chance to win a desirable name and number,giving the money to the scholarship fund and writing off as a charitable contribution. Everyone wins but Griff and James who are kind enough to donate the 4 aces moniker.

Like I said, all is good... But if there are folks out there praising the SASS scholarship program, just give!!

 

I guess some need an incentive to give.

Yeah...so I’m pretty new to SASS and didn’t know about the scholarship fund until this ad yesterday. When I saw the ad I thought “neat idea.” What I have noticed though is that you tend to be pretty negative about just about every thread I’ve come across which you are commenting in. I don’t get it. I came from other sports to SASS because of the people...the way you seem to put people down on these forums reminds me of the other sports. Of course, I’m not asking you to change...just thought you’d want to know how you come across to a new guy. I guess I should probably steer clear of the forums.

How bout we don't knit pic on a great idea. I'd say the life membership is a great opportunity. If you don't want 1111 I'm sure you could keep your number.....

Never made this personal... But it's funny how you folks... That are calling me negative... Are.

 

I like to consider other side's of issues and topics. Sorry if some of you only like to tell the emporer how nice his clothes are.

I purchased tickets almost immediately when I saw it. My own son actually wanted a similar alias to what is being offered.  Good cause and neat potential alias. 

 

Good luck everyone.

I never received this email....

 

Which is O. K....... my membership number has 2 pair in it. That's cool enough, but I still can't remember what it is when I fill out a entry form.

 

And I have no idea where my badge even is.

The chance to win the  Life membership is appealing, changing my alias not so much.
