*SASS Rules Apply. Must be a SASS member to shoot this match. Raw time scoring. Mail your registration before before April 10 to get the best deal. (But late entries are still welcome!) See Registration form for details.

Because of the need to manage posse flow, we cannot accommodate shoot-throughs. However if there are enough shooters to necessitate morning and afternoon relays, it may be possible to assign a shooter to both a morning and an afternoon posse on the same day.

*Interested in being a Vendor? Here is the Vendor application form for 2013.  Questions? Email the Vendor Wrangler  for details & signup. Other Calif events you may be interested in as a vendor.

In previous years Camp fires were permitted in the camping area but ONLY in a portable fire pit. We are not sure about this year yet. The policy LAST YEAR was:
Fires must be in a container that holds fire off the ground.
Must have a screen / spark arrestor above the fire.
Area beneath the fire unit must be cleared of grass, debris etc. Please be safe & responsible!


Montego would be happy to repair any website issues

  1. 5 Dogs members have never let us down. Once again they provided us with an excellent and fun shootout.
    Thanks to each of your members who made the shootout so much fun, their efforts certainly paid off and you even provided the good weather.

    See you next year.

  2. Another SASS California State Shoot is in the record books. I would like to say “Thank You” to every cowgirl and cowboy that attended this event. We hope you had a great time shootin’, visitin’, eatin’, dancin’, shoppin’, saloonin’…….!!

    To the shooters that couldn’t make it for various reasons…we missed you and wish you all well!

    A “Thank You” to all of the 5 Dogs members that worked so hard putting on a great match that didn’t get to shoot. The match could not have happened without your efforts! To the members that worked prior to the shoot and during the shoot but were able to shoot the match, “Thank You” also!

    Last but not least…CONGRATULATIONS to all awards recipients at the match! You shot straight, fast AND in order! :-)

    I hope to see you all again soon! I am already looking forward to next year!!

  3. Thinking of changing your alias to Anita Little Pie… no pie contest, but feel free to bake anyway and share with your good friends. :-p

  4. Any chance of buying pieces of delicious pie for dessert at the Shootout? Several years ago you did this as a fund raiser. It was terrific!

  5. Looking forward to another GREAT experience of shootin’, campin’, shoppin’ and dancin’. Eatin’, too.
    But I don’t know who else is comin’— the ‘Click Here’ function for registered shooters (Who’s Comin’) doesn’t
    work for me…..

  6. Looking forward to the State shoot in May and seeing our friends from Bakersfield and other areas!
