July State Director's Newsletter

First of all Jim & I must thank each and every one of you who sent emails, cards, phone calls,  and words of encouragement after Jim’s accident. Jim is home and doing better every day! Please continue to pray for his complete recovery.

And thank you all for jumping in at the Can-Am and taking over for me! Thanks to all your help and most of all, your entries there will be a CAN/AM in 2016! The NBHA National Office was very happy with the entries & even had a “Great Lakes Day”, Saturday, & gave away some beautiful buckles to the Open Winners! I think the $250 bonus was a nice addition to the show, the high money winners in each division of the Open won the additional $’s also all the Wild Cards that were given out were a great addition to the show! Congratulations to all of you who took home checks & buckles.  You represented Michigan well, we are proud of you!
The directors have observed that we have many new members in 2015! Please if you are an “old member” make them feel at home! Also please feel free to jump in & help at a show we are always in need of barrel setters, timers, office help, & tractor drivers. Just 1 hour of your time makes everything go so much faster & more professionally.

NOW, the directors need your help in making our 2015 NBHA State Championships even better than 2014! In 2014 we added $25,000.00, gave away 12 Alamo Saddles, 13 Gist buckles, & prizes down to 5th. At this writing we have 2 buckles & 2 saddles spoken for!!!!!! Please take a look at the sponsorship form  (Diane Fenby our web “lady” has it so you can download here on our website) & see if you can get even a $50 sponsor if all 600 members get $50 we will have $30,000.00 added! Remember you can earn free entries, stalls & camping with sponsorship $’s. We as barrel racers give a lot of our hard earned cash to shoers, dentists, chiropractors, feed stores, trailer sales, truck sales, etc for our horses, asking for a saddle or buckle sponsorship seems a small amount to ask for our business. Also sponsors get a lot of visibility by horse people both on our website & our NBHA State Finals Program, names on buckles & saddles & announced many times during our NBHA Michigan State championships!

Remember you must compete in 3 shows & be a NBHA Michigan Member in good standing in order to compete in our NBHA 2015 State championships!
Entry form is posted on the schedule tab! Pre-entries due August 6th.

Have a great rest of the summer & run hard! Good Luck to all of you! Be safe!


BRING BACK LOTS OF $’S & PRIZES! OTHERWISE HAVE A GREAT TIME & LOTS OF FUN! Brad & Pattie Marshall are your go to people at Youth World so make sure you look them up for parties & other fun things they have planned!
