All members (new and old) are invited as well as their family and friends.

A short meeting will be held to discuss the upcoming year. RSVP by March 27.


Rule Changes

Need to check out the Rule page. I have highlighted the updated rules.


Here is the list of those receiving awards.




World Qualifiers

KS01 has six qualifiers for each division in each class.

Congratulations to all World Qualifiers

World Qualifiers



2015 State Championships are in the books! KS01 was well represented this year. And as always there was lots of money won by our members. Everyone had a good time and to my knowledge no problems were had. Looking forward to the 2016 State Championships.

Thank you to all the KS01 members that brought baskets for the silent auction at State Championships. $519.00 was collected from the Theme Baskets, Back on Track Raffle and Cheryl’s massage chair. Thank you Erin Merchen for buying the Hunting Basket. The free open entry for 2016 State Championships goes to Candace Bowman.

KS01 has 3 more shows in 2015. If you are setting on the bubble for awards you need to make every effort to attend. We are going to be short a couple of shows this year. Mother nature just did not help us out again this year and several shows were cancelled. Remember you must attend 8 shows to qualify for awards. I’m starting to order awards so if you have any suggestions on items that would be different or unusual let me know and I will give them a look. I am always open for new ideas.

Douglas County has upped their price on tractor drivers. Instead of the $15.00 per hour that was being paid they are now charging $25.00 per hour. We cannot provide our own driver, but we can provide our own tractor and driver. If anyone knows of a tractor that can be used for our Sunday shows at Douglas County Fair Grounds for our races that could save some money. Just let me know!

State Finals

Just a reminder to everyone that KS01 will have a vendor table to use for a silent auction. Once again Theme Baskets will be donated and this year the basket that brings the most money in for KS01 will be given one free open entry for the 2016 finals. If more than 1 person goes together to make this basket those individuals will have to draw straws to see who wins the open entry. Hope you have been planning your basket.

September 4

Just a quick reminder that the 2015 NBHA State Championship entry form are online and are due September 11. Some changes have been made this year. Senior short-go is added and a Derby race. Entry fee for Futurity has been lowered to $65.00. Derby fee is $65.00. Entry form is on Kansas NBHA website ksnbha.

2014 graduating seniors who are attending college don’t forget to send your NBHA Scholarship Application to me so I can submit it. Kansas NBHA is giving away a $500.00 Scholarship to be used your 2nd semester. My address is 18170 Hollingsworth Road, Tonganoxie, KS 66086.

KS01 also has a balance of $600.00 at Valley Vet to use for awards. Thank you to everyone who orders from Valley Vet.

KS01 has managed to have 3 outside shows so keep your fingers crossed that we can have our next show on September 12 at Leavenworth County Fairgrounds in Tonganoxie. Warmups at 6:00 pm. Hope to see everyone there.
