NBHA Michigan State Championships is getting here fast! Here are just a few things of interest you need to know! We are trying a new arrival system this year! You can arrive any time on WEDNESDAY, August 31, AFTER 4 or before 9! The extra charge will be $75 per rig which you can pay on arrival & check in!

Another new cool thing is we are having a Women's & Men's Side pot for the 1st Open Go! The entry is $15 & you can sign up at check in! We are again having the Target Race, Sponsored by Split Pine Acres. This is $10 & again you can sign up at check in or before your 1st run!!

FOR CHECK IN: You must check-in personally before you run. If you are not checked in, we do not know you are here & you will be scratched! No one can check in for you. You as a contestant must check yourself in with Coggins & membership card! Please don't ask to check in someone else!

HORSE SUBSTITUTIONS: ALL horse substitutions must be in the office by 4 p.m. on Thursday, September 1st.

"Team Michigan" shirts for NBHA World Championships can be ordered at the office! We will have samples there! They will again be $25 for members & will include a T Shirt! Any extra T's will be $12!

BRING YOUR CHRISTMAS LIST! We have lots of vendors this year! Ellie May will have her great food on grounds again! Also Brent Puhl will be taking his great pictures & videos!

Saginaw Valley Equine and Beadle Lake Equine will be on grounds to help keep our horses in top running condition. SVEC will be hosting their annual Bar-B-Q on Friday evening!

We will again be having a silent auction with all the proceeds going towards added $'s. Bring your new or gently used items! By the way we will also take gift certificates from farriers, vets, dental or anything horsey or for any other services. Remember your trash is someone else's treasure!

We still have 14 stalls left for the bargain price of $45! 1st come 1st serve! After these stalls are gone, the fee will be $85! LATE FEE $25 PER RIDER PER VISIT TO ENTRY DESK!

Remember if you have any questions PLEASE call me (Diane 616-450-9189) or your director! Asking other members does't always guarantee the right answers! Thank you for your support of Michigan NBHA!
