Award money for the year is as follows:
Must be turned in before the State show in June unless you are a new member joining after the State show. This is voluntary and only if you want to receive awards at the end of the year. It is not mandatory if you are not interested in receiving awards. You will not receive awards if not paid. Any questions please see Melissa Nancarrow or myself.
Please make checks out to Melissa Nancarrow.

Dress code will be enforced at the shows. No tank tops. Sleeveless shirts are fine. No short shirts. Shirts must be tucked in or long enough that they don't come up over your pants. Riders must wear boots. Verbal warnings will be given and then possible disqualifications. If you have to ask about whether a shirt is legal or not then change it.
This will be my last year as the Director of FL 08. If anyone has an interest in becoming the director please get with me at the shows.
There are some new rules this year for the NBHA. Points in all classes will be done in a 5D format. We can still pay out however we want to as a district. They are also re-instating the one year membership rule in order to use a wild card. This means you must be a member for at least one year before you can use a wild card to go to any of the world shows. And the last change is that there is no limit to how many horses you can qualify back to the finals in a division at the world, national, or state shows.
If we have any open holes in the draw prior to the show starting all draws will be moved up to fill in the slots. I try to estimate how many entries we have at the shows but sometimes we have more or less.
Welcome to all our new members! I hope everyone will make them feel at home in our district.
Go FL 08 - Ain't It Great!
