In order to qualify for the 2017 Montana State NBHA Championships you must have a current membership and have competed in four (4) NBHA sanctioned barrel races within the state of Montana with that current membership. NBHA races out of state do not count. Qualification year begins the day after the previous year's finals and the last opportunity to get your 4th race is Friday night prior to the Championships in our Last Chance Qualifier race.
Purchase or renew your membership in advance of any NBHA MT race if you want the race to count as a qualifier, not after the fact. If you purchase your membership but do not receive a membership card in the mail, please contact Natl's to make sure your membership arrived.
Do not wait until the last minute before the the MT Finals to check your qualifications. Your race qualification status is updated shortly following every NBHA race when paperwork and fees from that race have been sent and approved by a State Director. There will be no last minute sanctions to allow people who did not plan ahead to get qualified. Any race not scheduled and sanctions submitted by August 25 will not take place. Only NBHA sanction/co-sanction/sidepot races count. Races advertised as "using NBHA Format" or "following NBHA rules" are not qualifiers.
DRESS CODE for NBHA Montana Championships is long sleeve button down and collared shirt, boots and cowboy hat or helmet. Failure to comply will result in DISQUALIFICATION AS PER MONTANA NBHA RULES. THIS WILL BE STATED ON THE ENTRY FORM AS WELL.
Please read our Code of Conduct to ensure you understand them prior to participation in an NBHA event or an event that has a mutual of understanding with NBHA MT, where we work in cooperation with on another ensuring our contestants a pleasant experience while in attendance.
