SASP College Nationals

This weekend, SASP college teams from around the country converged on the CMP Range in Talladega, Alabama, to compete for bragging rights of being national champions.

Ed Fitzgerald, with SASP founding partner GLOCK and Tom Yost from silver sponsor SIG SAUER joined us for the match and were on the range with the athletes. SASP’s sponsor Larry Steeley from Steel Target Paint was on hand to assist and also sponsored the paint at the match.

Thank you to our sponsors, to the safety officers, and to the staff of the CMP Range for allowing us to use their beautiful range.

Safety Officers Needed for SASP National Championships

July will be here before we know it, and we’ll all be traveling to Ohio for the National Championships being held at the Cardinal Center in Marengo. We are looking for help with getting Safety Officers for the match. The National Championships will take place July 8-15, and we will have two flights of shooters going out each day except for July 16, in which we will have just one flight of shooters going out since that is the last day.

If you’re a coach of one of our SASP teams or have been a Safety Officer (SO) or Range Officer (RO) for our matches or IDPA or USPSA matches, and you would like to help us out by donating half day or more for the athletes, please contact Rick Leach (rleach@sssfonline.com) or Tammy Mowry (tmowry@sssfonline.com). We would greatly appreciate your help.
