The Mascot Collection

The mascots for every SSAGO club

Possibly one of the stranger aspects of SSAGO is the existence of mascots! There are both national and club mascots, with each club having to declare at least one mascot that can be kidnapped.

Some clubs have more than one mascot, with older and more sentimental ones kept for memories. Many of the club mascots take the form of a cuddly toy.

The mascots listed on this page are kidnappable mascots, a little fun rivalry between SSAGO clubs. Mascots can be kidnapped at any time during a SSAGO event, although they may not be forcefully taken from a person looking after it. It may only be taken if the mascot is left un-attended or if handed over to someone accidentally.

Clubs who have had their mascot kidnapped can get it back at the next opening or closing ceremony of a national rally (whichever ceremony comes first, i.e. if stolen on Friday night of rally it would be the opening ceremony, if stolen on Saturday night it would be the closing ceremony). Those who have kidnapped the mascot are responsible for setting a suitable forfeit for the club to carry out in order to get their mascot back.

Solent SSAGO

Mark (affectionally known as Mark the Shark) was born on 23rd June 2015. He is a cheeky little shark who likes to wonder off and go on adventures. Because of this is, he is often very dirty and hates baths, so I would steal him with caution. On the flip side he can also be very lazy and doesn’t always turn up to events or socials. There is also a likely chance he will either flirt or fight your mascots, there is no middle ground! Although he is getting better at making friends, we promise! He will eat everything in sight, he is a shark after all!
