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 or groups 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 or group to carry out in order to get their mascot back.

Exec Mascots

The National Exec have their own set of mascots, which are non-stealable.

Pâl (the Welsh word for Puffin) came about after lots of research and debate about a good, not-yet-used, Welsh animal to take on the role of Mascot.

Therefore, we decided that Pâl would join our little team here at SSAGO USW, and will hopefully gain a few more little friends as time goes on.
