Sorry I missed the Ryland show. Sounds like it was great. Thanks so much to everyone for helping out.
Jamey Hunt and Mercadeez were the fastest members in the Open with a 14.847.
Cheyenne Patterson and Titan Right won the youth class with a 15.397.
Sally Young and Zanes Zantana won the Seniors with a 15.098.
Thanks again to Julie DeNapoli for sponsoring the WPRA co approval for this show.
Our next show is this weekend at the Circle A arena in Live Oak.
Looks like we will be getting some rain so the arena should be great for running barrels!
Don't forget to pay your award fees (optional) before the state show!!
We are out of hookups for the state show but still have plenty of room for generator spots. The barns are starting to get full so if you want a specific barn get your forms in soon.
The State Show Forms have been released. Please send in your hookups ASAP as they go very fast and it all goes in as it is received. If you would like a particular barn for your stalls just write your request on the form. We cannot take any reservations by phone or email. We must have the form in our hand with payment before it goes in. Any questions just give me a call.
We had a lot of new members join the district this year. Please help make them feel welcome. We are always glad to have new members.
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.
The district voted to continue with payouts and awards the same as last year.
If you would like to receive awards at the end of the year and place in the top 5 of a division then the following must be paid by the State show in June.
Arlene Price has volunteered to keep track of the money and also to do the awards again this year. Arlene will be at some of the shows but you may also mail her the money if you wish. Please make checks out to Arlene Price.
