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

July 8

Well oh mother nature has not been very cooperative the last couple of months.  I sure hope the rain quits soon so we can have some shows. I have scheduled more dates so check out the new events.

A big GOOD LUCK goes out to Hannah Allcorn who will be representing KS01 at the Youth Nationals in Perry, Georgia. Safe travels to Hannah and her Dad.

For some of you that have not heard, Dawn Dawson has stepped down as State Director and the National Barrel Horse Association appointed me to take Dawn’s shoes and believe me those are really big shoes to fill. State Finals are about 3 months away and lots of work to do. If any of you would like to help just give me a call.

I will also continue as District Director for KS01. My plate is really full right now! I am going in several different directions at the same time but I’m sure it will all turn out fine.

Great show Sunday, 5/17, at Lawrence. There were 102 entries and an additional $200 added to Open class in addition to the $100 as advertised. (100% payback on the $300.00) Thank you to everyone who jumped in and helped set up barrels, worked the gate, announced and helped with the entries. Everyone’s help makes the show run smoothly. New memberships are still coming in. Starting the warm-ups at 10:00 seems to help make the show run smoothly. Our next show is June 7 at Lowe’s Arena to begin warm-ups at 11:00.

March 26, 2015

Spring is getting close! Thank goodness. March brought nice weather and 2 really good shows. Everyone was ready to come out and have some fun. Glad to see everyone again. A total of 233 entries toward our RFB Series. With the new breakdown RFB has this year there is 3 qualifiers in each division so far. One qualifier for every 75 entries. Our show on April 19 will be last of the spring series. We should be able to qualify 4 in each division. So plan on attending that show.

Awards banquet was well attended with lots of smiles. The food was wonderful and everyone went home full. Short meeting was held announcing two new sponsors, HERITAGE BRAND and SHEA MICHELLE BUCKLE DESIGNS. Heritage Brand sponsored the tack sets for the Open divisions and Shea Michelle Buckle Designs sponsored all the buckles presented. We thank them for their sponsorship.

Also brought to everyone’s attention was each time a member orders from VALLEY VET 10% of your order amount will be added to an awards account that can be used to purchase awards. Reference account #4110040. Wormers don’t count but everything else will, including pet supplies. You need to make the order over the phone.

For all you new members KS01 welcomes you. If you have any questions, please ask. I don’t know all the names for the new faces but I will.
