After months of site visits, negotiations, and preliminary plans, SASS is proud to announce that the 11th installment of the SASS Convention and Wild West Christmas will take place December 4-8, 2013 in Branson, Missouri.
The 2013 SASS Convention will boast a brand new and exciting format, in a great new location! SASS has negotiated a “run of the house” agreement with the beautiful Chateau on the Lake Resort, Spa & Convention Center.
The Chateau on the Lake is a AAA Four Diamond Branson resort & spa that offers everything one would expect from a five-star resort- including a stunning lakefront location; luxuriously appointed accommodations; comprehensive amenities; choice of dining options; and expansive event spate- perfect for the SASS Convention! All this at an affordable price that provides a great value for your dollar. And what truly sets the Chateau apart is their expert staff, all being committed to providing each and every guest with an extraordinary level of service that is at once accommodating and professional yet warm, welcoming, and genuine.
The hotel features 301 beautifully appointed guest rooms and 57 spacious hotel suites with a focus on supreme comfort, absolute elegance, and unabashed luxury. Rooms ath the Chateau are limited, so get your reservations in early to enjoy staying at the Chateau- THE site of the SASS Convention!

In addition to the accommodations at the Chateau, Branson offers a myriad of other accommodation options for overflow- to include everything from rustic cabins, nearby condo rentals, as well as a wide variety of campgrounds for RV’s.
The re-invention of the SASS Convention is still underway as we work toward providing attendees with a once in a lifetime experience. The vital elements of the SASS Convention will remain the same, however- including the annual Territorial Governors Summit, important annual meetings to ensure our members voices are heard and represented on important issues. Important and historic ceremonies also occur at the SASS Convention; including the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and the Wooly Awards.
The 11th SASS Convention will also offer the return of the Indoor Wax Cowboy Action Championship- right on site at the Chateau on the Lake! We provide the guns and ammunition, so this one is an easy add to round out your Convention experience.
