ANNOUNCEMENTS

Doubling Down on Education


Maybe it was the bright lights of Vegas, Lady Luck or Good Odds, but whatever it was you’ll be glad of the bold move of the NLBRA Executive Board at its December meeting. Increasing the scholarship awards has been on the minds of board members for years and it has finally become a reality. The Executive Board Meeting the Board unanimously approved DOUBLING the World Event Scholarship Awards beginning 2015.

For years the awards have been $500 Champion, $350 Reserve and $100 for Third Place. The increases, across the board, are now $1,000, $700 and $200. “The focus of the board for nearly a decade has been to improve all aspects of the Association and that includes increasing the scholarship fund. After all, with a growing scholarship fund, the board remains focused on its mission to support the post-secondary education of our members’ education,”  said Kimber Solberg, NLBRA Executive Director. “Helping to shape these kids, growing the future of the sport of rodeo and our western lifestyle is very important to Little Britches Rodeo; and, providing financial support as they further their education after high school is the best use of our money.” 2015-05-31

Produce a Rodeo for Zero $$

What's the catch?

Well, we believe we may have come up with a resourceful idea.  If members of your rodeo committee will volunteer work at the 2015 National Finals Rodeo we will off you credits toward future franchised rodeos. If you’ve been to Finals before you have seen the amount of work that that board does to produce the entire event from beginning to the end.

We have a limited number of Franchise opportunities and we’re looking for a few good men, and women, willing to give of themselves for the good of their NLBRA franchise as well as the production of the National Finals Rodeo. Tasks include, but are not limited to: 6 pole setters, 3 barrel setters, 10 check in escorts (those familiar with the fairgrounds to get new folks to correct stalls and spots),  Hope Counts clean out station (4 hours shifts to raise money for Hope Counts with as many people as it takes), 4 flag race assistants (2 for each side) 4 trail course obstacle workers, 4 goat switcher outers, 2 people to operate the timed event stripping chute and timed event arena out gate, 3 people for each arena (total of 9) to gather the event contestants, 1 to get them into preparation area in order and 1 to open the gate. We’re sure we can find a task that fits your needs. The requirements will be fulfilling your obligation for an entire round (possibly 5 performances) then the NLBRA will credit that group with 2 $75/franchise fees, total $150. If your franchise would prefer to work one day (2 performances) then we could offer 1 franchise fee credit, total $75.

If this is of interest, please contact Kimber at the NLBRA National Office and get your franchise involved. 


Finals Entries -- Deadline July 10, 2015

Your Finals Entry MUST be in the office by 5 p.m. July 10.

Relax there are lots of ways to make this happen. Fill out the online entry, complete a paper entry and mail it in and if you're really up against the clock, email the paper entry to info@nlbra.com. It's still your responsiblity to make sure it is received, but the NLBRA National Office Team will help in most every way humanly possible to help you out.

Why wait, enter today and mark that off the TO DO List.
