As your Rio Salado Club  President and Territorial Governor, I am here to gather comments, criticisms, needs and your proposed rule changes and communicate them to SASS Headquarters. I will also keep the Club updated on rule changes from SASS. Your RSCASS staff will continue to encourage the growth of Cowboy Action Shooting and our great Club through monthly practices and New Shooter Orientations.


As members, you also represent SASS and our Club. So please encourage your shooting friends to give Cowboy Shooting a try. All the info required to start is on our website. I encourage every club member to read the new Shooters Handbook, which was updated in January 2022. It contains past rule changes and a new format which is easier to follow.  You will find rule clarifications by the ROC at


If you have any questions on rules in the SASS Shooters Handbook, please ask me. If I don’t have the immediate answer, I can find it for you.

President & Territorial Governor Update June 2024:

Greetings Cowboys and Cowgirls,

As we move into the hot summer months, we would like to remind everyone that the Rio Cowboys will continue to shoot our monthly matches. Shooters meeting will be at 7:45 and the shooting fun begins at 8 am. There will also be relaxed clothing rules for June, July and August. That means you can wear shorts, t-shirts and any closed toe shoes. Sneaker are OK. If you wear a hat, it must still comply with head gear rules, no ball caps. Please keep your clothing selections appropriate for family and guests.


We would like to congratulate Paca McMasters on becoming our newest Rio Ranger! The Club greatly appreciates all his past contributions and we look forward to even more!


Please note on our home page that we have created new Stage Conventions that are in affect for all matches going forward. Take the time to read them and know them. We are trying to give shooters more freedom of choice on the stages so this is a beginning. Our Match Director has also updated the stage writing to a simpler and more concise format for all to understand.


It’s not too early to be thinking about our next annual match. We love to give out special prizes to our shooters at the Annual Match. These gifts are all donated by cowboys and cowgirls just for this event. But we won’t have any prizes without your help. If you have anything, big or small, you would like to donate for this event, we would be very grateful. Please find our prize collector, Hoopsnake LaVache, at our next match or send us an email. And we thank you!


Volunteering is the only way we can run our matches. If anyone is interested in helping out your Club in any way, please let us know via email or see us out on the range. We welcome any and all help. And for all those that help setup and breakdown matches, Thank You again for your support.


Have a safe summer!


See you at the next match,

Be safe and shoot straight!
