2022 Board Members at Large
Well another year gone by.... A Huge thank you to all Board Members who worked to keep matches going in 2021. With all the shortages and public health challenges, we had matches every month and had over 360 members and visitors participate!!! Still however, half of our usual years pre- pandemic attendance.
It takes time and effort to run and manage these matches and a level of commitment by others to provide the opportunity for others to Shoot and enjoy the day. These efforts are lessened by having many volunteer their time each month to commute, write stages, set steel, register, score. and run the matches month in month out.
Los Vaqueros is seeking those Cowboys and Cowgirls Who can commit to one monthly effort for the year to keep things going, that means for the month or months you can; help can be provided in any way possible, writing stages, set steel, scoring, and registration.
Please reach out to me via this email, if you have questions and are interested in joining the club board supporting Los Vaqueros and Cowboy shooting for 2022

Match on June 20th
Hello everyone, we are pleased to announce that we will be having a match in June. We have done a great deal of research with surrounding area ranges and other shooting organizations in Arizona to determine the best approach moving forward.
The following conditions will be put in place starting in June and will continue every month moving forward until such time it is determined that these processes are no longer needed.
We strongly recommend everyone wears a mask, the reason for this isn't what it says about you taking care of yourself, it shows you care about others.
With that said if you are not comfortable around others that may not always be wearing a mask then you may not want to participate.
We realize that it is summer in the desert and wearing a mask all day is not possible or practical, We do ask however that everyone does thier best to protect others.
Also, we are requesting everyone to bring the exact change to the match that way there is no unnecessary handling of any materials and cuts down transmission or contact $10.00 for Members and $15.00 for Non-Members.
During registration, we will be signing up individuals on their behalf also to cut down on contact by handling materials. Aditionally, Participants will sign a Covid waiver (below)
Posses will be kept to the smallest minimum, therefore a choice of who you will shoot with and what bays etc, will not be part of the process to ensure a safe match you will be assigned.
We will have some sanitizer available, we suggest that you bring what you can to also support your saftey. wipes, gel, liquid etc.
Looking forward to seeing you all again as we adjust to the current situation.
Download Waiver, sign and bring to match, one will be required for each participant
SASS COVID-19 Update
2020 has certainly brought a whole new set of challenges across the globe- and as restrictions for gatherings have begun to be eased in many parts of the world, clubs have begun readying themselves to begin holding matches again. SASS’ number one priority has always been the safety of our members. As such, we have composed the below “Best Practices for Safety” guideline. Please understand this is only an outline meant to provide guidance. Above and beyond (or below) what is included in the document, all local and state mandates and restrictions pertaining to the COVID-19 Pandemic specific to your area take priority and must always be followed. Please take time to review the document, and reach out to your local club for any additional information on staying safe during this time.

Thank you for your continued support and dedication as we move forward with a vision of remaining the world’s greatest- and safest- shooting sport.
COVID_-19 Match update
This message is to provide an update for all shooters that attend Los Vaquero's matches. Everyone has certainly seen the news and information flooding our ears and eyes much of it conflicting or unclear over many weeks. Our board has met to discuss all issues regarding hosting matches and how they would be held and what steps we can take moving forward.
Based on many variables, including how to conduct levels of social distancing, wearing masks in heat, staying hydrated, registering for the match, handling money, awards etc. are few things to consider while keeping people safe. There are also numerous opinions regarding when it is safe and each perspective of an individual varies greatly. With all of that said there is no "right answer" that works for everyone that all folks will agree with. Los Vaqueros has determined not to hold a May match. During this time our focus is to prepare on how to run a match responsibly and in the safest manner possible.
We are looking at what other clubs are doing and other shooting sports and how they're hosting events and where and when including the number of individuals etc. Our plan moving forward is to resume in June. I have also spoken with Cowboy Doug (the Livery ) extensively and he also supports the decision.
We realize many folks may agree with that decision and many may not, unfortunately, that is the state of a lot of things currently. The most we can ask is that individuals understand the decision and respect others concerns for everyone's health and safety as well as those of us who run the match and manage them on a volunteer basis. It takes a lot to put these together, and a lot more to get through this.
We look forward to seeing those of you who come next month and wish you all good health and safety. There will be more news to come including a survey, modified range/stage rules and steps that we will exercise once matches resume.

Howdy, Fellow SASS Club members
I'd like to make sure your club members know about the New Mexico State SASS Match coming up on September 21-23, 2018, hosted by the Buffalo Range Riders club!
We'd love to have cowboys and girls from your club shoot this match. It will be on Founder's Ranch (site of End of Trail) southwest of Edgewood NM, so all the flavor and ambience of the ranch can be enjoyed. This is a ten-stage match, with unlimited free dry camping. We'll have a side match day on Friday, 6 stages on Saturday and only 4 stages Sunday so as to let pards get on the road earlier. Awards will be given for out-of-state shooters, they just won't be eligible for NM State Champion awards.
he match applications and vital information (including GPS directions and local camping or hotel accomodations) are available here.
Or, pards can call me for more information. Garrison Joe (505) 221-0520 or email email@example.com. This will be your only email about this, so rest assured you won't be continually bombarded with more email.
