'Boot-ee' awards are given for outstanding service/performance/acts of bravery/leaping tall buildings etc. to those
otherwise unsung folks who are in the background and do much of the work that makes our sport great:

'Cayuse' -- inspirational leader, mentor, SASS Regulator, Singing TG, Spirit of the Game recipient, Buckle Boy
and All-Around Great Guy (who's only missing accolade was a 'Boot-ee')

'Lou Graham' -- SASS Ambassador, SASS Cheerleader, most requested Posse Pard and the Supreme Queen of Soot,
(in short EVERYONE knows and loves Lou)

'Sachem Rose' -- another 'Woman Behind the Man' who often sacrificed her sanity and opportunity to shoot
to make the Buzzard Boil great for 10 years


Lou Graham: raffle winner of SASS Cowboy Trailer Hitch donated by Windjammer and his wife.
