I want to thank each of you for welcoming me as the new director of MT5. Stepping into this role, I have to begin by saying how appreciative I am of Sheri Yeager. The amount of time and effort that Sheri, with the assistance of Nancy Howell, volunteered has made MT5 one of the largest and most competitive districts in Montana. They have been such an asset to us.

My first area of focus as your director has been putting the schedule together for this coming year. I have tried to spread races out among varying arenas throughout our district. Please be sure to thank Tammy Jo and Rich Carpenter (Carpenter Arena), Mont and Amanda Peters (4P Arena), Kirk and Amy Erickson (Whitefish Equestrian Center), Vance Brash (Blue Moon Arena) the Lake County Fairgrounds, the Lincoln County Fairgrounds, and Majestic Valley Arena for their hospitality. Also, check the website as well as Facebook for schedule changes as weather and arena conditions may result in event cancellation/rescheduling.

Secondly, unlike Sheri, I am not superwoman. J Therefore, I am assembling a committee to work on the Glacier Barrel Bash. If this is something that you would be interested in, please let me know. Speaking of the Glacier Barrel Bash, please remember that proceeds from this race contribute to running our district races as well as the year-end awards package and banquet.  It has been customary for each MT5 member to obtain a sponsorship. We all benefit from the proceeds so please remember to be thinking about sponsors for this event. If you need a sponsorship form before I mail them out this spring, please let me know.

Finally, if you have a concern or question, please feel free to contact me. Phone: 406.261.9537 or email: rlhays@me.com. I look forward to working with all of you this year!
