NBHA MT 5 April Update 2018


Director’s Update:

The 20th Annual Glacier Barrel Bash is just around the corner. That means, it is time to order awards. To do that, I need your help in getting sponsors. Please remember that the Glacier Barrel Bash proceeds fund our club activities such as year-end awards, jackets, banquet, and added money as well as awards for the barrel bash.

Each NBHA MT5 member is expected to obtain at least one sponsorship. This year, our barrel bash committee has made a few changes that we hope will help with that effort. NBHA MT5 members will receive $20 off an entry for each $200 buckle sponsorship. Members who secure a $500 sponsorship will receive $50 off an entry. Members who secure a $1500 sponsorship will receive one complementary entry. Please try to obtain sponsorships as soon as possible as the money is needed to purchase awards prior to the event. We can also accept donations of product if someone is interested in that. Single donations can be used for awards in the Target Race while donations in sets of 4 can be used in the awards package.

Ivy Redfield has generously donated a raffle for a free breeding to one of her stallions. Anyone can purchase a raffle number for  $30 by going to her Facebook page. Thank you Ivy!!!

This year, we will also be offering a silent auction table. Members who bring silent auction items will receive a ticket for an incentive prize drawing. Dallas Heine is coordinating the silent auction this year. Silent auction items can be dropped off early with Dallas at Montana Grounds or with Sheri Yeager at North Valley Hospital.

Kassi Knodel will be in charge of the vendor booths. The cost for a vendor booth is $75. Vendors can set up 1 or both days, but the cost is the same.

Pre-entry’s for the barrel bash are due June 4. You will enter the Friday night warm-up race on site. Time-only runs will be Friday from noon-5 pm.

I want to thank this year’s barrel bash committee for all of their help. If you have questions, please contact the following individuals: Arena – Wendy McCaffree; Holding pen/Warm-up arena – Ivy Redfield; Awards – Sheri Yeager; Vendors – Kassi Knodel; Silent Auction – Dallas Heine; Sponsorships/Office – Rae Lynn Hays. Thank you to Nancy Howell for assisting in the office and Tammy Jo Carpenter for designing the program. If you are interested in volunteering in a certain area, please contact the individuals above. We rely on everyone to make this event a success.

In other news, we have one change in dates. The Eureka race will be held June 24 instead of June 23. Also, please be sure to read the rules for the Glacier Chaser Classic. They are available on the 2018 Glacier Chaser Classic Facebook page. Please note that the age for the youth division in this race is 16 & under. NBHA youth age is 18 & under. Therefore, I am not able to sanction that division as NBHA. However, I will offer a side pot for NBHA MT5 youth who enter the open, so you can receive points in our district. The cost will be $15  with 100% payout. Please pre-enter the side pot through me and not Glacier Chaser Classic. I will post a side pot entry on our MT5 webpage. 

Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!
