SASS The Single Action Shooting Society
For the past 3 years SASS has been trying to carry on the WWAC tradition. Each year at there annual convention at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas they have been holding a western performers contest. I have been one of the judges along with Montie Montana Jr. and many others from the SASS group. They have held contest in Trick roping, Whips, Knives and Gun Spinning. The first year was there biggest. About 50 of the WWAC members came. It was almost like a reunion. Since then it has tappered off. Last year there were about 25. Along with the contest Ben Essling ran a Whip clinic and there was Mike Bainton with a Knife throwing range the first year. Some WWAC members just came to watch. Next year they are moving it to the SASS head quarters in NM. Buck has done a great job trying to keep the WWAC skills alive.
