|2015 American Rodeo Qualifier|
Just wanted to thank the crew at the BRN4D finals for all of the hard work. Also want everyone to know that Mike and BRN4D are sponsoring one of the handmade saddles at PGW. I really appreciate you giving back to a producer and helping us to give a really nice award to some lucky winner. The other saddle sponsors are Pro Steel Fabrication, they are the makers of Invisi Lock that you can install on your tack door which is a dead bolt system to keep unwanted people out of your stuff. I think it is a very neat idea. Also, Lithia Dodge in Kennewick is another sponsor and they are going to bring a crew and Dodge trucks for anyone that wants a test drive at PGW. Super nice people and they will also have some drawings for stuff including a Traeger Grill at their booth. Hope you take time to test drive a new Dodge Ram Truck or Jeep. They will have several vehicles for you to choose from. Don Johnson Trailer Sales, The Trailer Place will be there with several models to choose from and they are dealers for Trails West and Featherlite trailers. Tony and Brenna Loften will be sponsoring a saddle and they will have all of their Tight Joints Plus and other products available for sale at our Show. Love Tight Joints Plus!! The saddles are hand made by Scott Holstine and they are really super nice. Looks like a great fit for you and your horse. And we feel really lucky to be able to give these very nice saddles thanks to our sponsors. Back on Track products have donated $10,000 worth of product to give away, these include mesh sheets, polar sheets, and quik wrap boots. I got just about every single product they make, their stuff is wonderful and will be for sale The Best Horse Gear booth. Mike and Cindy are also donating five pair of Iconoclast boots to some lucky winners, Dr. Solomon is donating 5 travel vet kits with really great products that you can use on the road. Twisted X Boots are giving us free boot certificates that you can redeem on line or at Ranch & Home. They are also helping with the purse money along with Ellenbaas Company who will have a booth and tons of information about their quality feeds they have been producing for the Agricultural community in the Northwest for over 65 years. Stop by and see them and how they can help you with your feed program. Cowgirl Tuff is giving us gift certificates for their great jeans. There is much more to come. We have a lot to offer at PGW besides some great barrel racing, so please take time to visit and thank these sponsors. The American Qualifier entry form and rules are up on the betterbarrelraces.com website. We will run the American at approx. 1 p.m. Sunday. We have 10 breast collars commemorating our event that will go to the top ten qualifiers that will move on to the Semi Finals round. There are a lot of you out there that need to throw your hat in the ring for this wonderful opportunity to compete for $1 million dollars. The Northwest has a large number of the toughest horses in the nation and we need to show our stuff!! Don't forget they don't take late entries for the Qualifier, you have to be entered by 9 p.m. Central Time Zone June 14th. You can roll from the Qualifier into PGW or run in both. You can run 2 horses in the Qualifier and qualify on both of them. You may run as many as you want in PGW and it is OPEN TO THE WORLD. You do not have to be a member of any organization to run here, although we are approved by BRN4D, WPRA, BBR AND NBHA. YOU MUST BE A MEMBER OR PURCHASE A MEMBERSHIP FROM BBR TO RUN IN THE QUALIFIER. Also, we will have day money side pot with 100% pay back both days of the main race. You must enter that at the office when you get there. Futurity riders, the Futurity side pot now has $250 added and is WPRA approved thanks to Tonya Hebert. Does not say $250 added purse as entries were out before we got this done, but the money will be included in the futurity payout. The American Paint Horse Assn. has contacted me about their Paint Barrel Racing Incentive Program. They will be putting up a purse (I believe $500) for a side pot at PGW. They are trying to grow a barrel racing program within their assn. and you can nominate and enter the side pot to be eligible for some great year end prizes. I will put all of the information on my website within a couple of days. We hope you will take advantage of this. Razer Shoes are wanting to jump in with some incentives as well, we will be talking to them this week. WE have something for everyone at PGW and it is going to be a very exciting weekend of barrel racing . Please be sure if you are entering late with me, that you get your time onlys and stalls in no later than June 14th. Western attire is required all weekend, I don't think the button shirts and collars are required though. But look pretty or handsome!! You may show up on RFD TV. Pre entries for PGW postmarked no later than June 14th. Will accept late entries at the TRAC.
