to the Ozark Hills Barrel Racing Association
Points and results have been updated following the September 27 show at Mansfield/Mtn Grove.
Getting the Finals show scheduled in October has been difficult. Our OHBA Finals will be held November 1 at Rock'n RV Arena. Exhibitions will start at 1pm with the show to follow.
Thank you to all that have jumped in and helped out at the shows. There is no way we could do it without you. Please ask Vicky what you can do to help out. Thank you!
For the past few years it has been a common complaint that we don't have enough outdoor shows. We have tried to schedule more outdoor shows this year. As we go outside there are a few things we need to remember. We will try very hard to make the ground conditions as good as possible. We understand the importance of good ground for the safety of our riders and our horses. Our goal will be to provide as good of ground as possible. Also, many of the outdoor arenas will charge a gate fee. Most will be $2 per person or $5 per truckload. We are looking forward to a great summer!
Please tell all your friends that are looking for a place to run barrels about our association. There are not many places where you can run locally for a chance to win saddles, jackets, tack and other awards. Our memberships are $25 for individuals and only $10 for youth. There are no extra fees, no processing fees, no awards fees, no sponsor fees and most shows have no gate fee. All of our shows are held withing 100 miles of Willow Springs. Winter shows are all held at the Rock'n RV Arena in Mountain View. In the summer we go to some of the nicer outdoor arenas in the area. Next summer we are going to try to have more outdoor shows. The arenas we are currently looking at are Thomasville, Willow Springs, Mtn Grove, Mansfield, Hartville and Grandin.
I am posting the awards winners for all divisions. Remember, each person is eligible for one award in each class (youth, adult, open). You win your highest placing and then drop out and other members move up to win awards. I did go back and audit all points. There were a couple of adjustments that I had to make but no major changes. If there are any questions do not hesitate to ask. Here is the way it all shook out this year.
