2018 raffle winner Jesse Henson

Congratulations to winner Jesse Henson! He bought his raffle ticket as part of a 6-pack just one hour before he won! It was also his first ever visit to the Sand Sports Super Show, so it just goes to show you never know when or where we will sell the winning ticket!

Richard Breen

The American Sand Association (“ASA”) is pleased to announce the receipt of a substantial donation from the estate of Mr. Richard Breen, of San Diego, California.  RB, as he was known to his friends, was an outdoor person, and spent a large portion of his life outside at the beach, the mountains and the desert.  He was an avid duner and supporter of the ASA for many years. He was a veteran of the Coast Guard, where he was a Fire Control Tech, and also of the Navy, where he was an Electronic tech.  While in the Navy he worked on Radar antennas for F4 and F14 jets, and also worked on research and development projects.  Per his final wishes his ashes will be sent to space.

Mr. Breen’s generous donation will greatly assist the ASA in its mission to protect the public’s access to public lands, including the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area (“ISDRA”) in Imperial Valley, California.  This includes the ASA’s efforts to re-establish access to Patton Valley from the Sand Highway and to restore access to the east side of the dunes in Glamis across the railroad tracks.
