RUNNING OUT OF CLASS
Members please make sure when you are entering races you are entering in the correct class. There have been a lot of problems this year with people running in the wrong class. We understand that sometimes mistakes happen and none of us are perfect! Please remember it is your responsibility to keep track of your horse's lifetime earnings. The race producers have no way of knowing whether or not you are entering in the correct class, nor should they be expected to. Per the rule book if you run out of class you will forfeit any points earned for that race, your entry fees for that race and in the event you won money, you will be required to return those winnings to the race producer.
Each time the standings are updated and posted there is also an updated list of those people moving out of class posted on the same page as the standings. We don't want to see any of our members losing points or forfeiting their entry fees, so please keep track of your money won.
Rim Rock Riders Event Center
An organizational meeting was held this month to get an overview, form committees and share ideas so we can get the ball rolling. A lot of interest and great ideas to make an awesome Finals weekend were shared and discussed.
Plans are being made for some new things to look forward to; i.e., Sponsored Men's Race and a portrait photographer for your horse or both you and your horse. This in addition to Action Plus' Barrel pictures!
Watch for the date of our Finals Spring meeting and plan to be there and join the fun!
RIGHT NOW WHAT WE NEED FROM OUR OBRA MEMBERS IS:
LET'S MAKE THE 2016 FINALS FILLED WITH SMOKIN' RUNS & NEW IDEAS FOR A MEMORABLE WEEKEND!!
OBRA WESTSIDE FUNDRAISER UPDATE!
The May 22nd Westside Fundraiser is quickly approaching and you don't want to miss out on those double points!! Also, don't forget to bring an item for the silent auction in order to confirm your 10 extra points for attending the year end meeting. Without a donation to the silent auction for either the westside or eastside fundraisers or a silent auction donation at finals, you will not be able to receive those 10 extra points.
Come show your support for OBRA and without a doubt see some fantastic runs and have a great time! The detailed information is listed on the Schedule page.
