2012 Arkansas State SASS Championship
The state SASS championship was held this Labor Day weekend at the very nice facilities of the Mountain Valley Vigilantes in Hot Springs. Shooters began competition on Friday with Wild Bunch and side matches then spent Saturday and Sunday banging and clanging away. I haven’t been in this wonderful game very long and this was my first trip to the state match. I didn’t know what to expect, but I was quite impressed by what I saw, felt, and heard. I have never been to a place with so many guns going off at the same time! I was awed by the professionalism of all those involved. My wife was with me and kept going on and on about how friendly everyone was. It was a great time and we can’t wait to attend next year.
Our shooters represented the club in grand fashion bringing home quite a few trophies. Naildriver took top honors as Men’s Overall State Champion and State Forty-Niner Champion. Ambler was State Silver Senior Champion, Rip A Lot was State Lady Forty-Niner Champion, C.S. Brady was State Cowboy Champion, Just Charlie took the State Senior Champion title, Cowpolk took 3rd in Wrangler, Road Maker earned 2nd in Forty-Niner, and John Greywolf took 3rd in Gunfighter.
