NBHA MT5 April Update 2017
It is looking like the 2017 season is really gearing up! Plans for the 19th Annual Glacier Barrel Bash have been under way for about a month now, still looking for more sponsors and anyone who is interested in being a vendor, this event will be here before we know it. The format will be a little different this year with Time onlys on Friday June 16th from 12-5pm with an Open 4D jackpot following at 6pm, Youth and Senior classes will be side pots only, that means you have to enter the Open and roll your time to the Youth/Senior classes. Then June 17th will start at 9am with Pee wee class first followed by first race of Open, Youth & Senior classes with the second race starting about an hour after the first race ends, 1st place in the Target race will be a saddle, generously donated by River Bend Ranch!!!! MT 5 is pleased to again be a part of the 3nd Annual Glacier Chaser Classic scheduled for July 15th & 16th. , more information can be found on their Facebook page Glacier Chaser Classic, producers Valee Cooley and Jana Perry. We will also be co-sanctioning the 3nd Annual Western MT Ranch Rodeo July 30th , thank you Sharon Guenzler & Sarah Crimmins for letting us be part of your event. There are still some other potential races that we may be co-sanctioning in the works so stayed tuned.
MT 5 first races of the 2017 season will be a Double Header May 6th, at the Blue Moon arena in Columbia Falls, these races are a fundraiser for the NW MT ProRodeo Queen, Princess and Little Miss organization, see flyer under the schedule tab for more information. It’s looking like we will have a great season of barrel racing.
You will need to enter 8 MT 5 races to be eligible for a year end jacket. Remember you must enter 4 MT NBHA sanctioned races to be eligible to enter the Montana NBHA State Championships, September 29th-October 1st , which is on track to be bigger and better than last year.
