    What's Been Happening in the Northeast:

     

  • 'The Great Nor'easter' (SASS New England Regional) is going to be the fourth weekend in July (July 23-26). We were going to move it to August 27-30, 2015 to avoid some of the hot, humid weather we have been plagued with in the past, but we have been convinced that many are used to the last weekend of July and that moving it wouldn't work well. The side events will be on Thursday, six stages on Friday, six stages on Saturday, and the Top Gun Shootoff's and Awards Ceremony on Sunday.
  • The 'Iron Cowboy Shootout' in Candia, NH scheduled for November 9th by the White Mountain Regulators has been cancelled.
  • Shoot at Danvers, MA on Saturday, October 11, 2014 is cancelled due to range construction.
  • Shoot at Danvers, MA on Saturday, Aug. 2, 2014 is cancelled.

  • Range Operations Basic Safety Course: Preacher Ben Pray'n and Barrister Bill will be conducting an RO I course on Saturday, October 26th at the Monument Beach Sportsman's Club, (the home of the Cape Cod Cowboys).

    RO I is the Range Operations Basic Safety Course. Fee for the course is $5.00. The course will begin at 11 am and run for approximately 4-5 hours. SASS members will be awarded a yellow SASS pin as evidence of satisfactory course completion.

    SASS highly recommends shooters take a refresher course. If you have taken the course more than two years ago, this is a great opportunity for that refresher course. Shooters completing the refresher course will receive a chevron with the year the refresher course was taken. As a refresher course no fee is required to take the course.

    Mark your calendars! Reserve early, as space is limited. Any questions, just ask! Please contact: Preacher Ben Pray'n at Heath53@cox.net or call 401-651-5827
