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.
Garrison Joe, Match Director

Hope we will see you there.
Summer is here and the desert lets you know it. Be prepared for summer matches by wearing light loose layers to stay cool and keep covered up. Switch your hat to a light color or straw version to allow heat to dissipate from your head and be sure to consume 8 - 10 ounces of water for each hour you are on the range if not more. We always have iced bottled water on the range during the match for you, so please take advantage of it. Sun block should be applied generously to any exposed areas and also reapplied during the day to protect the skin.
If you have a cart that has an umbrella this is the time of year it comes in very handy. If you are a new shooter, there are plenty of folks that are willing to "share the shade". Summer is a great time in the desert to be outdoors you just need to make sure you are well hydrated and prepared.
